Being “afraid” or “stuck” in any area of your life is a sure sign that you have work to do. When you push through your fears and let life in, it can be a truly amazing journey. Ever get those butterflies in your belly? This is also a good sign that you’re on the right path to whatever it is you desire, including a healthy lifestyle.


I’m your living proof that change is good. Time after time, I’ve pushed through so many fears. Each time I do so, it’s amazing what I find on the other side.

It doesn’t matter what others think or say. Don’t let the judges and critics run your life. Take control of your own life. Set goals for yourself and follow through on them. Step out of your comfort zone, add some excitement to your life, and learn to feel alive again!

Find out what it is you’re afraid of and push through the fears. Push through being “stuck” and be who you really want to be. You’ll be happier than you have ever been and you’ll feel and look better, too!

What if I told you that you had wings that could take you anywhere you wanted to go? Or that you could be anything you wanted to be and do anything you wanted to do? What if I told you that you could fly and be free of whatever it is that holds you back? Then what if I told you that all the wind you need to fly is already with you?! Fly!

Q: I end up overeating because it makes me feel better and I never really get full. I'd like to lose weight but this makes it hard. Any suggestions?

A: Being persistently hungry can cause big trouble. So can overeating for comfort/pleasure. These two behaviors, say researchers from Baylor University's Children's Nutrition Research Center, are controlled deep within your brain by serotonin-producing neurons, but operate separately from each other — one in the hypothalamus, the other in the midbrain. They both can, however, end up fueling poor nutritional choices and obesity.

Eating for Hunger

When hunger is your motive for eating, the question is: "Does your body know when you've had enough?" Well, if you are overweight, obese or have diabetes you may develop leptin resistance and your "I am full" hormone, leptin, can't do its job. The hormone's signal to your hypothalamus is dampened, and you keep eating.
