it’s so insane to see the difference on year can make. i was down almost 12 lbs in the pic on the left and i remember having my sister take those pics and crying because i just wanted to be smaller. i felt so good with my weight loss but expected myself to look smaller than i was. this was something that happened for awhile and i would get super stressed, discouraged and upset from it. this is just part of the process tho, you have to keep pushing through to get that end result. you have to CHOOSE YOU and choose your goals and prioritize EVERYDAY. you can do it though, you are worth pursuing and you deserve to feel happy and confident 💕🥰
It is becoming common knowledge that inflammation is the root cause of many debilitating conditions. With autoimmune and gastrointestinal disorders on the rapid rise, we as a society are continuing to deepen our understanding of how much of an impact inflammation has on all the systems of the body. But to truly understand the impact, you may need to take a step back and change how you think about the health of your body. Read our blog post for more (link in bio)
I've been thinking about this a lot and would like YOUR OPINION. I am thinking of doing UK Keto boxes and by this is would a goody box in 3 sizes 5, 10, 15 items that you can eat on low carb/Keto diet. These would sold first on eBay and would be available worldwide. 🙌🏻
What would they contain? X amount of UK brands of snacks, drinks, cake/bread mixes, discounts, recipes and more. If you would be interested please let me know below or via DM so I can get creating and to know the numbers.
Don't tell people your plans, show them your results just like what Chloe did! She #slayed and we're loving it!

Do you realize that getting enough sleep is a very important part of losing weight.
The amount of sleep you get directly affects your diet. People who are sleep deprived tend to weigh more and have more trouble losing weight than those who get adequate rest, even when they follow the same diet. When you don’t get enough sleep, your body over produces the hunger causing hormones leptin and ghrelin. You could be more susceptible to overeating, while at the same time being less satisfied afterward.
People who consistently get less than six hours of sleep also show glucose and insulin levels and characteristics similar to diabetics, even if they are otherwise very healthy. Your fat cells lose their ability to properly use insulin. As your body becomes more resistant to insulin, it will produce more and more in order to function. This leads to fat buildup and could eventually lead to diseases like diabetes.
Not getting enough sleep also makes your more stressed out, which in turn makes it more difficult for you to control your appetite. A sleep-deprived body will produce more of the stress hormone cortisol. Cortisol triggers the reward center in your brain and makes you crave food. The combination of more cortisol and more ghrelin mean that you’ll need to eat more food than you normally would in order to feel satisfied.
Lack of sleep can also lead you to crave more sugary or salty foods and make you less likely to be able to say no to unhealthy treats. Sleeping helps refresh your mind and your decision-making processes. Exhaustion reduces your mental clarity and judgment.
Not getting enough rest can also severely impact your time at the gym. Your body and muscles need time to repair while you sleep so you can push yourself the next day. You produces the most growth hormone while you’re sleeping, which helps burn fat as well as repair and build muscles so you can increase strength and lose weight. Not to mention, if you’re exhausted, you’re much more likely to skip the gym. Even if you do make it out, you won’t have the energy to train to the best of your ability.

- “I’m a pediatrician and I spend a significant part of my day talking to families about the need to maintain a healthy weight; but I felt like a hypocrite sometimes as I was struggling maintaining mine. I was overweight and something needed to change!
1. Delicious meals in the plan helped me get control of my portion sizes
2. Meal prep (though takes time) ultimately makes mealtime healthier and easier for me ( and my family)
3. Flexibility of choosing any workout I wanted or had time for is excellent! With my busy schedule I needed something I could do whenever or wherever!
4. Accountability works! (Even my hubby and kids would check sometimes if I met my goal🥰 and reported it to my coach)
Thanks April, glad I found you!”
