Decide. Commit. Succeed.

Being that I recently celebrated the five-year anniversary of embarking on my health and wellness journey, the past few weeks have been a time for some reflection.  In some ways, five years seems like such a long time, but when I think of all that I have accomplished in that time period, I feel extremely […]

Three Signs You’re Ready to Start the Journey

The number one question I get is, “How did you lose the weight?”  I think a lot of people are hoping I will be the one to give them the “magic bullet” answer; the one where you don’t have to do any work, make any sacrifices, etc.…  The one where you just declare you want […]
