This is me 3 years ago in Cuba (left) and now (right). It was on that trip that the Cuban coco driver told me to sit in the middle of his cart because I was the biggest of the riders.

I tried Weight Watchers and had a little success, but I always felt deprived, like I was just trying not to eat. It just wasn't sustainable for me.

I'm so thankful for the health journey my mom got me on just a little over 4 months ago. I feel so good, eat good food all the time, and never feel deprived.

Recently I had a few days where I felt like I was pushing against a brick wall. I had all of these things in my heart to accomplish and had been working towards them with diligence for many months when I came to a spot where I smacked into what felt like strong resistance.

As I was driving down the road thinking things through, I passed a middle school football field. That was the moment when I was able to put my jumbled up, frustrated feelings into words. I felt like I had been pushing against one of those blocking sleds they use in football practice.

Having that picture in my head brought me relief and peace. I realized that I was actually in a good spot. Sometimes to get something off the ground you have to push. Pushing is hard, painful work. The fact that it is time to push means that something awesome is about to break forth.

When I was in labor with my first son, there was a distinct moment when the pain became so strong, that I just wanted to stop, climb out of the hospital bed, and go home. I had been waiting for that day with all of my heart for nine months, honestly for my whole life. When the pain became overwhelming I just wanted to "stick a pin in it" and try again another day.

Turn back the clock another 23 years. When my mom was ready to give birth to me something crazy happened. When the time to push came, her doctor instructed the nurses to hold her off for what turned out to be several hours. This delay caused physical damage to my mom. She had to have follow-up surgery and ended up only being able to bear two children when she would have liked to have had more.

Sometimes you just have to push! Quitting is not an option, and delay is dangerous.

This is the moment when the resistance actually works for you. Great breakthrough is imminent if you keep pressing forward.

Whenever a woman is in labor she has pain because her hour has come; but when she gives birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish because of the joy that a child has been born into the world. John 16:21 NASB

I'm realizing that my biggest breakthroughs come when I keep pushing. (Please don’t take this as permission to push against God in a rebellious way.)

DO YOU EVER have a hard time making a decision? It can be especially hard if you're the type of person who really wants to get it right. The higher the stakes, the harder the choice.

Things can seem so foggy when you're looking at your own life, but when you look into someone else's situation it's often very clear. We tend to either be really hard on ourselves or go too easy on ourselves. If you can't make a decision or you just don't know what to do, imagine yourself advising someone else in your situation. What would you tell them?

It can be really hard to make a choice when you highly value doing the right thing. As long as you aren't choosing to do something in violation of God's ways or your conscience, you can move forward with courage and confidence. Even if you choose "wrong", God is able to make everything work out for your best.

When you have a decision to make: •Pray about it •If you're married, get into unity with your spouse about it •Bounce it off the people in your inner circle •Say no to fear •Pick the "scary but exciting option"

To break free from gridlock, you will have to choose to let go of all of the "what if's" and move forward. If at some point the peace leaves, you can choose to make a change.

KEY IDEA: PRAY, SUBMIT TO GOD, GET IN PEACE,
AND CHOOSE THE "SCARY BUT EXCITING" CHOICE!

WHAT I LOVE THE MOST ABOUT BEING A HEALTH COACH is helping people who've tried everything to get healthy and gotten nowhere.

Don't get me wrong, it's fun to help anyone. But the ones who are at the end of trying everything else and are really ready to do whatever it takes... these are the ones who are so much fun to coach!

Within a few days on the health journey, they realize that this ACTUALLY WORKS! That's when HOPE kicks in, and things get really exciting.

Before I know what's happened, they are becoming a whole new person right in front of me!

I love helping people find peace and hope, and that's exactly what this program does!

I'm soooo thankful!

Chava’s amazing story:

June 24, 2017 the start of it all 😉

I knew I HAD to loose weight, I knew I was spiraling down a path I promised myself I’d never end up 🛤 but I was exhausted from trying and failing a billion diets.

Hypothyroidism, PCOS, Endometriosis all messed with my hormones playing a cruel cycle of weight gain instead of weight loss.

And when you keep failing at health - you don’t have an interest in making healthy choices 😔

I watched my mentor share her journey for over a year and I doubted its “real-ness” ... I kept on doubting until I had enough and was willing to try anything!

Guess what it worked!

70 lbs down in 8 months 😲 💃🏻 And then to top it off, after struggling with infertility for the last 10 years we found out shockingly that we were expecting 😯 😲! If your watching and doubting ; it’s REAL.

If your watching and waiting ; just do it.

THINING ABOUT GETTING HEALTHY IN JANUARY?

Just to give you a head's up, my coaching team is telling me that once January hits, shipping times are going to be longer because of the dramatic spike in people wanting to get healthy.

If you want to be ready to go right at the first of the year, let's get you all set up in the next couple of weeks.

You're going to feel like a whole new person! 😍

Here's Xena's story:

Yesterday was one year ago since I made the phone call and invested in my own health. One year ago I was broken, depressed, felt no self-worth and was 30 pounds heavier.

Fast forward only weeks in and I achieved my 30-pound weight loss goal and got a handle on my anxiety and depression.

I found an amazing gift in this program by paying it forward and helping others do the same.

Where I was one year ago to where I am today is unbelievable. Never did I think investing in my own health would have such an impact on my future.

This Health and Wellness Plan #IsNotADiet This is #Real! This program will change your life only for the better.

DO YOU EVER FEEL LIKE you’re doing everything right but getting nowhere? If so, this post is for you!

Things may not look promising right now, but everything can change in a moment.

No matter what you’re going through in this season, I want to encourage you to hold on to God and continue planting good seeds. If you plant good seeds, you will get a good harvest in time. This is a promise from God, and God cannot lie!

No matter what God calls you to do, He will always provide the grace to walk it out. It may not always feel like it in the process, but looking back later, you will be able to clearly see His hand.

Wisdom doesn’t make decisions based on short-term results, rather it makes choices based on long-term goals.

If you feel like you’ve done everything you know to do, and you’ve asked God if there’s anything you’re missing, it’s time to stand firm. When you’ve done all you know to do, STAND.

If you feel like distancing yourself from friends and family, choose to continue to make deposits into their love tanks. You may not see an immediate change, but in time you will.

Keep on doing what you know is right. God will be faithful to finish the work He started in you!
