Dreams do come true… This year so many of my dreams have come true. 4 years ago my husband and I had conversation about who would financially support the family. I LOVE working and yet, at the time, I didn’t believe that I could make more than $30 an hour. (By the way...
The old me would have told myself that I could finally relax and enjoy living the dream once our house is finished but…

We often make our kids a priority and forget to take care of ourselves. I did it. I didn’t eat healthy food, exercise or take time to do things that created joy. We don’t allow ourselves to take the time we truly need.
Money and weight loss have more in common than you think. I work with women who feel out of control around food. I teach them how to feel in control around food. I help them take charge of their body and their life. The tools I teach them are the same tools you can...

As our kids eyes fill with wonder and belief at Christmas time, you should do the same. Why? Because when you believe in something, it opens your eyes and mind to things you didn’t see before. Little kids see the proof of Santa because they believe. They see the evidence all around them and the excitement increases. We can do the same with weight loss!

What do you think living “The Good Life” is? Is it something you are seeking? Maybe “The Good Life” is this elusive life that you are desperately to create so you can feel abundant.
