Individual coaching is fantastic, but a powerful way to scale your business is by offering team or group coaching. One physician coach who has mastered that is Dr. Matthea Rentea, an internist and life and weight loss coach and the cofounder of the Weight Loss Coaching Collective that helps women lose weight for the last time, without resorting to food restriction.
On this interview, we discuss her journey how she lost 60 pounds on her own, after a lifetime of being overweight using life coaching tools, and now uses her coaching platform to teach others. If you are considering weight loss coaching yourself, or want to learn how to transition from individual to group coaching, then this episode is a must-listen inspiring interview!

Dr. Matthea Rentea’s Physician Coaches Profile:
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Hey guys, this is Dr. Michael Woo-Ming. Welcome to another edition of BootstrapMD we’re going on in our series of interviewing really important people who are making a difference in the physician world. And it’s through coaching. And I’m really excited because this is a subject that you know, And needed coaching on this for my, for most of my life.
And that is weight loss. And. I think too, what’s really interesting too, is not only are you going to hear about her journey, how she became a weight loss coach, it really is something if you’re interested and she, we talked about prior to this, that she’d be interested to sharing how that actually started because certainly obesity is something that is, we need more people to help with.
Us in this battle. And if you’ve got an MD or a DO behind your name, it’s just going to increase the credibility and maybe we can get, we can conquer this, but joining us… she’s an outpatient medicine part-time but in just the beginning of this year, She started her own weight loss program.
And the website is the weight loss coaching collective. And introducing me on the call today is Dr. Matthea Rentea.
Thanks for joining us. And you’re from Indianapolis. I was looking at your website, very professional looking website. And what’s interesting is that you are, you just told me you are either starting or will be starting up your third group coaching session. So that’s really interesting because most coaches are doing this one on one and they’re seeing if they can maybe transition into group.
It may, obviously it depends on their niche, but if it works for them, I’d love to share your insight into that. But Matthea. , I want to know is, so how did this weight loss coaching develop from maybe just talk about your journey, how this all started.
Dr. Matthea Rentea: First of all, thank you for having me on, because I have just loved listening to everyone else’s stories. They inspire me so much. So I actually, so I’ve been overweight my entire life and I grew up in a two physician household and we always ate healthy. All of that. I guess I just always liked eating. And what I came to a few years ago was that I found myself well over a hundred pounds, overweight, headed into a pregnancy and kind of everything that I feared would happen the blood sugar problems, all of it. And afterward I said, I really want to get some of this weight off, but I couldn’t figure out how to do it in a way that was sustainable and where it would actually stay off. It’s all of us have been able to lose some weight, but how do you actually keep it off?
And so I actually. A group weight loss coaching program for female physicians. And it changed my entire life. My intent was never to go out there and to be a coach and to do this. But it radically changed it. It was so little about the weight. Ultimately it was about just how to deal with stress from work and how to be more accepting as a parent of how you parent and just everything that you can imagine.
And so I ended up going and getting certified with the Life Coach School For Life and Weight Loss coaching, really, honestly, because I wanted to learn, this was never about going out. I just, I needed to learn more for myself. And then the more I started to work one-on-one with people, I realized this is the thing that’s actually getting them the result that they want, but they’re also feeling better.
Forget the weight. They’re actually liking their life again. And that’s, what’s so attractive to me about coaching that people can. I think really get their life back. I think as physicians we’re really busy and we don’t have time to do 900 things, but we have time to show up for one hour to really get some gems out of that.
So at this point I’ve lost over 60 pounds and what I realized, what, yeah, what attracted to me with the group coaching is that you hear other people’s worries. And you realize you’re so not alone. And we know that in our mind, but until you sit in a zoom room and hear everyone else talk about it, you realize, oh, but I’m really not alone.
It really hits home. So I think that’s why very early on, I was attracted to the group setting because for me, that’s where the real transformation happen.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: I’ve got a lot of questions and I’d like to you go back into their journey because I think it’s something that should be talked about and it’s something that I’ve experienced.
I, myself have been overweight for most of my life. I’ve lost about 40 pounds. I own a weight loss clinic there, obviously there was the pressure to do that .
And you’d come on the hypertensive and then sometimes they would hint at it. It doesn’t sound like you’re following your own advice. I don’t know if you’ve ever had that extreme.
Dr. Matthea Rentea: Yeah, no, no one ever explicitly said it, but you can tell what their body language how they look you up and you can, you get the cues.
And I know inside, I felt that there was lots of shame that as a physician, I was sitting there in front of them, educating them on things, which I thought were the best evidence-based practices, but I, myself couldn’t do them. And I think that was a real pain point for me. But even that was not enough to motivate me to know how to lose weight and keep it off.
So I think for sure I had that and I think a lot, because we actually have a lot of physicians that work with us because I think that’s a big motivator is you feel like to the community, you need to look a certain way, right? To present yourself in that way.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Now, I probably know the answer to this, but did you get any weight loss education and medical school or residency?
Dr. Matthea Rentea: It was minimal, right? It was like an hour or two and it was sorta like, “Hey eat less calories, move more.” Always from someone that never really struggled with weight. So they almost can’t understand how you’d be failing a million times. And yeah, very minimal. No nutrition, not nothing. Yeah.
So we’re sitting there telling people all day long, but we ourselves are not very don’t know the most about it, I think.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Also too in your experience, I had colleagues who were like super fit, right? So they becoming an, oh, “I just did it an iron man, or I did this and it’s even more guilt.”
It was like, okay they bike 10 miles and I drove 10 miles to get to the same place. Did you ever have any of that or any maybe pressures from your colleagues about losing it?
Dr. Matthea Rentea: All the time. In fact, I don’t actually remember there being any other overweight people in residency.
And I was in a really big residency. There were about 120 of us and I always, yeah this is the thing about it. Like again, I keep coming back to group, but it’s I was always in the room with I just visually couldn’t see anyone else. That was the same as me. And not that we need that, but then again, you shrink even more into I’m the only one and there must be something wrong with me. And yeah, definitely it definitely went through.
During my training, I was at the VA. And then going to be headed back there. Yeah.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: What compelled you to go to the coaching route versus, Hey, maybe I can set something up?
From inpatients, or did you think about doing something like that or was it even allowed?
Dr. Matthea Rentea: Yeah, so the route I’ve taken with patients is that I try as much in the visits to incorporate some of these concepts. And then I started a pilot. So that they could listen to that and that they could get the information in that way.
So I said, “Hey, there’s only so much we can do in the room here, but go listen to this.” And this is supplemental in addition to what we’re doing. And so I don’t know that I could have within the confines of where I’m at now that be selling programs to people like that. But at least I knew that there was a resource that they needed.
And so I created that to give to them in the visits and then for them to do afterwards.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Yeah. I finally, because I’ve had doctors who… Have been in the same situation they want to do coaching. They’ve actually thought about trying to do it in their own, organization. And they said, it’s, they get a lot of pushback from the organization.
And then it’s” Hey, maybe if they actually lose weight, we can get them off these medications.” And overall, you’re going to save a lot of money from all of these. Cardiovascular redoing on everything that’s involved with obesity okay. So you decided to pursue it, you said you were, you got coaching yourself and that’s a trait that I’ve seen with every coach that I’ve done.
Every coach that I’ve seen is always had at least one coach or mentor, because they’ve benefited from that one in particular with your coaching that you, that really resonated with you.
Dr. Matthea Rentea: Yeah. Learning that there wasn’t one more piece of knowledge that I had to learn, like a special diet or a special way.
It was actually starting to tune into, “Hey, let’s just turn back to basics. Do we even know when your body’s hungry? Do you know when you’ve had enough actually listening to your self?” Again, I feel like it was really learning like an unwinding process that that your thoughts actually matter.
And it was really getting back to basics and I think for so long, I had kept thinking that I had to learn one more thing or one more expert out there had the answer. And it’s we’ve been through that for 20 years. We’ve got it. Everything. Now you have to figure out why is it not working for you?
And so that, I think that it was more of unlearning things. If that makes sense, like learning that I know enough at this point.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: So what was the timeline between you actually getting coaching and you deciding to coach others. What was the turnaround?
Dr. Matthea Rentea: So I got coached for a year, so that was very intensive. And then I went and got certified. So it’s been about a two and a half to three years now. Yeah, I think it’s one of those things too, where even now with me coaching, I still will always get coached because I noticed that my life like was coaching just helps me to be so much better, but without it, I don’t stop.
If that makes sense, like you always are trying to achieve the next thing. Great.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: So tell us about the journey.
How was that process? How did that process for you opening the doors, opening, opening up your website and getting new clients. And also, did you have like entrepreneurial experience? Did you did you have mentors that you could turn to for that. Yeah,
Dr. Matthea Rentea: I had zero business experience. So this was nothing entrepreneurial. In fact, everything before that was very like cookie cutter and prescribed, just do residency and attending position right out of there. Everything exactly how it should be. So what I did, I actually, so I went through the life coach school. I got certified life and weight loss coach.
And then I did an advanced certification because again, I was just trying to learn all these things. And in there I met another girl and we decided, okay, we’re going to go do this. And. We just experimented like crazy. Okay. What message could we put out there to say, Hey, come join us. Where could we put it out?
What could we say? We started a podcast. How are we going to get people to listen to it? We had, of course we had mentors. We would ask them, “Hey, what’d you do here?” And I would ask within the life coach school world, like sunny, and there’s a bunch of them were, all the time we’re asking the Facebook group questions, but at the end of the day, you have to go experiment, right?
Because hazing and other things led to absolutely nothing. And I think not making any of that means anything. You just keep going and eventually you end up creating the community that you actually want. And not what you maybe thought in your mind when you started.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: So what came first? Was it the podcast or was it the business?
Dr. Matthea Rentea: We decided when we first started out, this was in January, we said, okay, we’re going to do a six week program. Let’s just see if anyone would even be in for this. And I think we got, I want to say maybe 10 to 12. I forget the exact numbers. So we just did that organically. We just got online. We said, Hey, we’ve got this great program.
We’re advanced, certified weight loss coaches. We just did a few lives within our personal pages. What else do we do? Yeah we just put it anywhere. We knew we just put the link and ask friends, Hey, can you share this? Or just all organic? No ads.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: So you got no budget,
Dr. Matthea Rentea: $0. And in fact, we had no concept, but we hadn’t even created the whole program because we didn’t, again, we never knew if people were actually going to sign up. So once we had people, then week to week, we dripped out the materials so that we created the initial program. And then with time we’ve expanded it and read on the videos and made it much more meaty.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: I love it. So how was that? How did that you got it and then. Clients. Yeah,
Dr. Matthea Rentea: it was very nerve wracking because, and it was actually a learning experience because I know we had told some people they’re getting we think we’re going to have, four to six. We were guessing. And then one of those people got mad because they said now the group’s bigger and you told me it was going to be smaller.
Okay. So lots of learning. Okay. Don’t promise numbers. Don’t talk about this. Don’t talk lots of real quick learning of what not to do, but again, I think the only way, that is by getting out there and doing it.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Yeah. And it sounds like you were transparent to do that. It’s “Hey, we’re just learning as well as you’re learning.”
Dr. Matthea Rentea: We’ve always been! We created a lifetime community where once you have paid once they can keep coming back week, every single week to the sessions and everybody’s coming back. And I think part of that is because we pulled everybody in what’s happening. We let them know what’s changing.
We let them know how we’re growing. Of course things are going to be changing quickly in the beginning with something like this, we don’t have this kind of well-established program.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: And maybe you could talk about the actual program itself. It sounds like this is done like via zoom or some type of,
Dr. Matthea Rentea: okay.
So we, so when women join, we send them a 60 day planner. And again, with the course now being longer. So now it’s 12 weeks. We send them to planners. They come weekly to zoom group coaching calls. So that in question and answer, they have, they can email us in between for right. And for coaching. There’s a video series that we host on Kajabi so they can when they come day one, they can watch all of it if they want. And we’re all about, we’re always trying to engage them. So even turns before the program starts, we’re already sending them emails, Hey, here are things that you can do at home to warm up your environment. So by the time you start, it’s actually successful.
So it’s video, online, zoom, workbook, and then any email and support that they need in between.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Now another interesting thing that you, that’s interesting in your business is that you have a. Yeah, you have a partner. And so what’s the dynamic with that?
Dr. Matthea Rentea: My co-founder is Carrie Williams. She’s amazing. She’s again, same life coach advanced certified. And that has been for me the secret sauce, because I realized I love working in a team. I love bouncing ideas off of someone I’m much more creative when I can throw things out and hear feedback. We keep each other accountable. I don’t know that every single day and week I would show up and keep going.
Doing things and being excited and having different ideas. It’s that different perspective. So to me, it’s been the secret sauce. I will say. When we first started out, we had three people and then one of them decided, you know what? This is not my thing. I don’t know that she was more interested in business and not really in weight loss, coaching, and.
So we learned from that. And what’s interesting is it became even better than, we were able to move quicker. We were able to create more ideas and I think whatever pops up, you just have to work with it and keep going and you always get to keep deciding, do I want to keep doing this? Do I love it? What’s my reason behind actually doing it.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: . Anytime, you get a refund or, you get an angry comment, just like in business, we can have 99% great comments, like for like my business on Yelp or something like, but that 1% is the one that drives us up the wall and realizing it is that, Hey, as long as you’ve done the best you can, so you can sleep at night and you were just authentic and help them, but you’re never gonna make everybody happy and now or you take it as like a lesson learned like, okay, maybe there was something that we said, I’m not saying this is the case. Even our marketing. We said that maybe she thought there would be more business. I don’t know what it, whatever, but you have just learning.
Failure is another way that you’re gonna another step to success. So that’s great that you’ve got a good dynamic and, I’ve had partners, I’ve had business partners. Great. I’ve had business partners that were lousy, but the best ones are ones that where you guys, the communication is great and they, their strengths is your weak.
Dr. Matthea Rentea: That’s exactly how we are, because we are in communication basically constantly with WhatsApp, what do we have? And we with lots of systems in place, but it’s like you said, if we were not totally a hundred percent on the same page, I don’t think it would be working.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Yeah. One of the problems is miscommunication. And someone feels like they, during the majority of the work and they think the partners is probably thinking the same thing and it doesn’t end well, but so far, so good. You’ve got this. You got a, let’s say your first grip, you had about 10, 10 to 12 people in the first group.
Tell us about how that experience, how that felt for you.
Dr. Matthea Rentea: So it was an interesting experience because we put, we made it at a price that was based. It was almost free. Essentially people paid hardly anything. And what we learned as people were not committed when they hadn’t really paid something.
So lots of people paid for it. Then we had a core that was showing up all the time, but not really everyone. And so we got a lot of learning out of that of, you know what, it’s not, we’re not actually helping them out when we make this too cheap. It’s, we’re not respecting ourselves and not respecting them.
And so we learned also. We had a Facebook community for the first round and it was very distracting to people. So they weren’t doing the work on themselves and they were getting in there and talking. So we took a lot of good learning out of that. And then changed going forward with the the different groups going forward.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Yeah, I think so too, price is always the one where as a business owner, we just we don’t know where to start. But I think he did the right way. You have to charge something more. So because you need to get those testimonials, so those testimonials are, or what’s going to help drive your business.
But on the other side, if they’re not committed, if they’re paying, pennies on the dollar to what you’re worth, and we don’t know what you’re worth. They’re not going to show up. They’re not going to do the homework. Free advice is, free is free advice, right?
It’s not going to be taken, but. That’ll get you to that point where then you could start charging. And then, I paid for poaching programs that are, five figures or more, I’m going to show up to every single month because now I’m committed. I’ve got skin in the game, so to speak okay.
That’s so good. So many different lessons that you’ve taught us here. Now talk about the decisions to do group coaching versus one of. Did you do that right away? And not many people that I knew what to do that.
Dr. Matthea Rentea: Well, I had started out doing one-on-one I’d done about half a year. Yeah. So I did start out doing that.
What I realized though, was that I only was with still working in clinical medicine. I only had so many hours per week and I love the one-on-one. I still do some of it, but I realized number one, when they need to hear what other people are saying like that, that there’s some magic that’s happening in there.
That they can’t get on the one-on-one so we can do all the one-on-one in the world. But if you don’t hear that someone else is going through the same thing, you quite often can learn much easier when you’re looking at someone else, because it’s so clear, right? You’re like, that’s their problem.
But for you, you don’t have that clarity. We really wanted women to see that. So that’s the, that was like, the decision was number one. Time-wise this will not work out to just keep scaling me doing one-on-one. And then number two, I think more importantly, the client needs to hear this. This is what they’re really missing.
That’s the missing piece now,
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: your audience or your clients are women.
Dr. Matthea Rentea: It’s not just women position. We tend to find it’s women that are 30 years and over. But it’s really usually professional busy women, working moms. That’s typically who are, who we’re attracting.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: And why was that decision made? Why did you decide to maybe broaden it to some who remained the only work.
Dr. Matthea Rentea: Yeah, because I really felt that women we’re really being served a lot. And I felt that there are tons of great communities. I think I myself liked Katrina Ubell. Hers is amazing for physicians.
I know there are several others that I know, and I thought they’re really well taken care of. I want to create a community where. No, if they want to come fine, because obviously I’m there and that, and we’re attracting a lot of them but that’s not going to be the sole focus because I really think you can learn from a lot of people and I, you don’t need to narrow it down to that.
So I really felt that more people needed to be served than just the women physicians.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Now, as I mentioned, most often, or most coaches are one-on-one and they want to go to group coaching because as you’ll come to a point where you can’t scale your business, right? You won’t eat you’re substituting time for dollars.
Coaching is a great business. Don’t get me wrong. But if you want to scale, if you want to make more revenue, then you just have to increase your put prices, which could be as you’re just starting, can be very difficult to do. So you completed the first, your first group and I think you said you just completed your second group or maybe in the middle?
Dr. Matthea Rentea: Yeah, we completed that in may. And then we’re going to do the third one coming up here. Yeah. In September. Okay. So you do this about three times, three times a year. What lessons did you learn from the first group that you applied or maybe changed in this second?
Yeah, we learned that we needed to know our women much more, so we have much more check-ins with them.
So when they’re coming in, we get to know them a little bit of one-on-one is in there. We learned what their what their pain points were. So from the first round we heard. Were they not making it through the videos? Was there too much content? Why did they not make it to a zoom call?
All these things that happen. We took every single one and we looked at how can we help support them more? So honestly, we greatly simplified the process in the second round. And then that meant that everyone was coming to everything and it was much better. So we just took we every single thing that didn’t go good instead of beating ourselves up, we were just like why?
And we got really curious about it. And I think that really helped.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Another area where someone a coach is considering going into group coaching, but maybe a bit skiddish is having someone in the group that maybe isn’t meshing with one or maybe causing conflict. Did you have any of that experience or did you vet them before they actually started in the group?
Dr. Matthea Rentea: Yeah. So I think that this is actually part of group coaching. And this is actually part of when we onboard, when people are coming into the program, we let them know that part of this is really their responsibility, that they’re learning, that they’re in control of how this is going to go. So if you’re going to sit there and let what someone else is saying or what someone else is doing affect you, then not only are you not going to get results here, but in the rest of your life as well.
We actually talked through some of these things, even with the introduction, like the introductory video, when they come in and this is part of it that they need to realize if they’re judging someone else or something else that’s happening, it’s likely within their own life. So we address that even to begin with, we haven’t experienced much of that yet.
But definitely obviously of course, that’s going to come up. I even saw this one. I was going to say, oh, it’s coming. I’ve seen this in other programs all the time. Or earn a coach, even being strongly questioned on certain things. And I think that’s part of life and it’s just we’re when we get there, we’re going to go through.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: As long as you can expect it, maybe it isn’t a direct conflict, but it could be one person is feeling they’re neglected or one person feels that, they want more one-on-one and ma, and maybe there, there is a disconnect between them who knows, we can’t predict we can do their best to screen and to just.
And they’ve, they just want to say I did the best I can and I can sleep well at night. This is so exciting because what I really excited and congratulate you for is you just went out there and did it because I know the majority of them, they might take another class.
They might, get the certification. Heck they might even start, announcing. But then that’s it. They’re not getting any, anything. Did you have any trepidation, when you start first starting to announced that maybe you weren’t getting a flood of people signing up and were you discouraged because of imposter syndrome.
Dr. Matthea Rentea: So you had an episode, a few back on this massively because I thought to myself, okay, technically, I’m not a goal waiter. I’m not perfect. Or I didn’t really ever consider myself a thought leader or how am I out there? The one doing it? You name it it’s like a million things. And then I just decided the people that are meant to work with me are going to work with me.
And there are a bunch of other great people as well, which is the brilliant part about coaching is that you can totally find someone that gets you where you love their message, how they’re delivering it. And. I just decided to get over and do it. And I really just didn’t care how it happened. I didn’t have anything wrapped up in who’s working with us.
How many, any of it? I just decided this is so important. This has a hundred percent changed my life. And if I, if there’s one other person that can ever get this, we’ve done.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Good. Before the call, we were talking about what kind of topics we’re going to discuss. You mentioned when, like you were just saying, “Hey, weight loss coaching is, if somebody wants to get into this, I supported them,” which is great because you don’t, People who are not coming from a place of abundance, right?
It’s about, just for lack of, I’m just going to pick out a niche. Let’s say they’re a real estate coach. I’m the only real estate coach that there could be for this. And I’m not going to announce anybody else about that because I’m the best, but you’re telling us, Hey, look, this obesity is a big problem on here.
We need other voices. Why did you decide to be as open.
Dr. Matthea Rentea: Because everybody hears it differently from different people. I think about when I came in, so again, it was just Katrina Ubell, and I just do her podcasts and I just went in her program and then I realized, oh, there’s this whole big world.
And do you know, what’s been beautiful about it. I’ve gotten to know all these different coaches and I’m gonna call them personalities. Okay. Cause some of them, I don’t know, one-on-one. I recommend different coaches to different patients. I will listen and say okay, I see you at PCLs and I hear this about you or hear your religious background.
And then I’ll say this person, you might want to look into their stuff and I’m realizing that’s amazing. I don’t need to one-on-one work with everyone. I don’t need to have everyone in my group, but everyone is ultimately going to settle down and land exactly with who’s going to help move them along.
And majority of us work with multiple people. Anyway, you start with someone. You really learn a lot, then you’re ready to grow or to see a new community. So ultimately there’s room for everyone. And I think a few years ago, I didn’t know anyone existed. So it’s now that I’m in the world, I know about it, but I didn’t know any of this before.
Yeah. I love it. And that’s one of the reasons I started physician coaches. This is someone went and work for me for business coaching, some will work with others who are just like, oh, they’re better at doing this and whatever it’s not writing resume. That’s fine. I want you as the client.
To go to where I think you should go. And there are definitely people it’s like, Hey, that’s the one sounds better than you. Unfortunately there are some people who do have that. Narrow-minded thinking as I like, I’m just for that. And, I think their growth is they will be stifled for that.
I’ve seen that in the business world where I’m just the best for this niche. Then when it comes time to Hey, can you, I need to start promoting myself. And nobody really wants to talk about me because you were on an island and you never got off it so much great nuggets that we talked about.
I really appreciate you just being candid about how it’s working for you and you actually have your website. Is where do we go if they want to find out more information about your weight loss coaching.
So if anyone wants to find out more about our program, it’s the w lcc.com forward slash reset. And they can find out more about us.
We have information for our upcoming 12 week weight loss reset, and it’s a lifetime program. So once they’re in, they come for life to everything. So no need to keep reinvesting you get help for them.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Yeah. And the next one is w at the time that you’re listening. Release it before this actually happens.
Tell me that the date and where in the website that we’re going to can go to, to get more information now.
Dr. Matthea Rentea: If they go to thewlcc.com/reset, there’s a link at the bottom to join the 12 week reset. And you it’s enroll and you can just click on there
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: and then tell us about who is this coaching program.
Who’s it best for who, for someone who may be struggling with weight right now, or perhaps they. Perhaps they, some might feel that they. Might have too much weight to lose and perhaps they don’t need to lose a lot of weight, there’s so many different things to consider.
Who’s would you consider like the best candidate for your profile?
Dr. Matthea Rentea: The woman that this program is for is if there’s any emotional eating, so reasons other than physical hunger. So I don’t care if you have over a hundred pounds to lose. If you’re more on that spectrum, like me, if you have the last five, 10 million.
Yeah. Ultimately, we’re going to dig into why are you using food in ways other than fuel? How can you love yourself again? How can you get rid of some of that stress in your life? Really, the emotional aspect is where me and Carrie really shine. That’s really who we work with.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: And, as you said, you’re a testimonial for your own success story, but maybe perhaps you want to share some success stories maybe you’ve had in the prior groups.
Dr. Matthea Rentea: Yeah. So I’ll just share one. We had a client that she she joined our previous reset that we just did that was starting, April and on. She has lost 31 pounds in the middle of that. She broke her foot and was on crutches for six weeks. So not able to walk around at all. And I just want to share that, it’s not about, we’re not going to tell you to get out there and exercise or to count calories or points.
Any of those kinds of things. You can lose weight a hundred percent with food, freedom, learning your body again. And if that’s not, just telling you, Hey, in a few months, 31 pounds feeling amazing. I think that’s the main thing.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: And as any great entrepreneur does, they’ve got goals, we’ve got goals for their business.
Where are you saying? Where’s the weight loss coach and collective? Where do you see it going in five years?
Dr. Matthea Rentea: I would love for us to grow a community. I, if we could have a few hundred women in there within a few years, I think that would be amazing. I ultimately want a group that’s very close that knows each other.
That feels supported. That feels like this is the safe place I can come that I’ve never had before. I think that’s really the.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: And on a personal level, do you feel that you’re going to be dropped down the amount of clinical hours or you can always going to be working part-time or you’re not sure where that’s handy.
Dr. Matthea Rentea: So I’m dropping it down a little bit right now, because there is a lot of work that goes into running a business, and obviously we’re in the beginning stages, but so I think it’s going to be 50/50 for a while, and then we’ll see afterwards. It sounds like you’re having fun. Yeah. Lots of fun.
That’s probably the funnest thing I’ve ever done.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Awesome. And that’s why I love entrepreneurship. It’s the perfect business because you’re having fun, we’re oftentimes, unfortunately as doctors, we go to. Sometimes we’re not having fun and we all know about burnout, but that’s for another story.
But Taylor, thank you so much shared a lot of good information. I think this call is required. You might have to listen to two or three times, cause there were a lot of great nuggets that you wanted to share. Is there anything you want to end with just before we end the call today?
Dr. Matthea Rentea: No, thank you so much. It’s been such an honor to be on today.
Matthea again, it
