Farewell to My Hero… My Mom

I unexpectedly lost my hero today… My mom passed away peacefully in the arms of our family as we sang worship songs to usher her into her eternal place in Heaven. 21 hours earlier, she suffered a massive stroke in her brain and the doctors did all they could to keep her on life support until we could all get there to see her.

Why losing weight and keeping it off is SO hard (Hint: It’s in your genetics)

Who is your most challenging client to get results for? This is a question I occasionally get asked, and for me, the answer is simple. It is the client with an unsupportive spouse (hardest) or unsupportive family, friends, or coworkers. Basically, the client with the most unhealthy social circle has the hardest time getting the results they want.
