Have Your Cake and Lose Weight, Too

Helen M. Ryan is a business owner, freelance writer, mom, fitness pro, nonprofit founder, author and chocolate lover.

Like many women, Helen found herself leading a busy life with little time to take care of her health or herself. As an entrepreneur and mother, she spent years moving from project deadline to child activity, with no thoughts about her future or pursuing her own dreams.
In 2003 she was faced with her father’s death from cancer. It was at that moment Helen—wearing a size 20 on her short frame—realized that if she didn’t change her life and try to become healthier, she would die, too, and without doing any of the things she had wanted to with her life.
Losing more than 80 pounds in 10 months through simple dietary changes and exercise, Helen began to rediscover the person she used to be. She became a certified fitness pro to help others, and returned to her writing roots, penning her first book, “21 Days to Change Your Body (and Your Life),” an Amazon bestseller. She has also co-authored the book “Tools for Business Success,” and has written for national publications and web sites. Her story has been featured on and in the Huffington Post.
Helen’s goal is to help people become healthier in a realistic way, work fitness into their busy lifestyles, stop beating themselves up, and lead healthier, happier lives…without deprivation.
In her free time, Helen photographs rock concerts, teaches
Spinning classes and eats chocolate.
