Hi friends! Hope everyone is healthy and happy. Last weekend was the big event I had been preparing for! And, drumroll please.....I FIT in the dress and had a blast dancing the night away. It was such a beautiful wedding, and I couldn't be happier for the newlyweds. Even though I experienced some setbacks this summer due to unexpected personal issues and didn't hit my 40 lb weight loss goal, I am happy to say that I was still able to see a significant loss in inches!

Hi everyone! Hope you are all doing well and healthy. Wow is the summer flying by quick! I have been non stop it seems. Things have been super busy with work and life in general. I had the AMAZING opportunity to go to Disney World!
What an awesome life experience! I don't care if your 5 or 50, it's definitely somewhere you need to go and see at least once in your life. I absolute look forward to going back with my own family but I already made forever memories. The Magic Kingdom is HUGE! Make sure if you go...
Hello FRIENDS! How are you all doing? I've been doing pretty good... enjoying the summer heat and afternoon pool time. To be honest though, up until today, I have felt discouraged and disappointed in my weight loss journey. I haven't been sticking perfectly to the Dr. Brown Diet and haven't been exercising as regularly as I had planned to. Even though I have lost 8 lbs in the last month and half, I expected the weight to come off quicker and was disheartened when I hit a plateau a few weeks ago. But after taking my measurements today, I see...
Hope you are all doing well and enjoying the new paleo recipes coming to you each and every week that are all Dr. Brown approved. After the last two weeks, I have made a little progress. I'm working on breaking some bad habits still and continuing to push forward to be the best me possible. I have lost 4.5 lbs and am expecting bigger numbers and results in the upcoming weeks. But I'll tell you what, every ounce I lose I celebrate! Each ounce brings me closer to my goal! My goal this week is to lose 5 lbs...
The first week has come and gone. My how time goes by so quickly. I started eating paleo and the Dr. Brown Diet again, and my goodness the struggle is real. Anyone who ever said staying on the straight and narrow was easy, well they are a big (probably not so thick) fibber. When you create a habit of eating not so healthy and over indulging in each and every thing your little heart could desire, it's no easy task to cut it out cold turkey. I did struggle this week and caught my self finding a way to...

So with summer fast approaching and a friend's wedding on the horizon, my beautiful right hand woman, Celia, has some wellness goals she is trying to reach. In the past year and half, Celia has already shown me she is a dedicated hard-worker, so I have no doubt that she will reach her goals, and I am excited that Marpé gets to be a part of it! Over the next few days, we will go into more detail on her plan to get fit by summer and how she is going to use Dr. Brown's Diet and her own...
