This story just blows me away!! 🎉🎉🎉🎉 Check out Noelle’s story:
“I get a lot of questions about how I stay motivated and on track. Honest answer, I was done with being unhealthy. I had abused my body with food for years and it was time to learn to love Noelle again. It took awhile but once I started to love myself, there was no going back. Sharing my journey publicly has helped tremendously. I made sure to share my struggles with people who care about me. Natural thing to do is hide our vices because we’re ashamed. But I’ve found that, more often than not, people are excited for you, and will be there to support you and help you any way they can.
Be sure to speak kindly to yourself 💕 Expecting perfection is setting yourself up for failure. When you allow yourself to be imperfect, you will find it easier to make the right choices.
I hope that if you are someone struggling, this will inspire you in some small way. It’s not an easy journey but it is so worth it in the end. Stay focused and celebrate the little milestones.” Wow!! Noelle is truly amazing!! Big change just requires the choice to start. It might be scary to try again, trust me, I know before this I tried so many things, but this program was so different. I would love to walk alongside you as you learn healthy habits and transform your life! #nothernutahhealthcoach#healthcoach#hashimotos#diabetesprevention#autoimmunedisease#ms
Morning walk with my daughter & neighbor 🚶🏻♀️fruits & nuts with breffest. Yumm 😋🤣Helping my daughter stay active everyday has helped me as well 👍🏻😁#winwin She's down 3.6 pounds in a week and I'm down 3.8 pounds since starting #whole30 12 days ago (the most I've lost in a LONG time, my body has been fighting getting past a certain weight for over a year. I'll get there then hop back up 😖) Anyway, I'm so proud of her. We all know this process isn't easy. I remember being emotional during exercise when I started. It's all part of the process. I remind her to keep going, it will get better. She will feel better and then the motivation to exercise will come naturally. Motivation and consistency are THE HARDEST PART 😜#keepmovingforward#walkwalkwalk#moveyourbodyeveryday#stayactive#diabetesprevention#lovemydaughter#fitnessjourney
We're broadcasting live with @947wdsd this morning! Come to our @central_y_de we're here with AARP until 11am today -- free class demos, healthy food and great information about the @ymcade Diabetes Prevention Program.
If you guys dont already know, I teach Diabetes Prevention classes through the YMCA. It's a year-long program, encouraging lots of healthy lifestyle changes, with the goal of taking prediabetic patients and preventing or delaying the onset of type 2 diabetes.
Last night was the last session of the first class I began coaching. I had three participants in that class, and in total they lost: ✖75 pounds total
✖six clothing sizes, plus two resizings for a bullet proof vest (police officer)
✖eight belt notches
All three of them are off high blood pressure medication, one is off a heart medication, and most importantly, all three of their fasting blood glucose numbers were within the normal range. They are no longer prediabetic.
It feels pretty good to be part of such an important program... I really feel like I'm making a difference in people's lives! #ymca#diabetesprevention#cdc
OMG this couldn't have come up at a better time! After having a binge fest from Friday-Monday (binge free 2 days 🙆♀️🙏), this #100daychallenge is exactly what I need right now for some #accountability 💖
My food goal for the next 100 days is to be binge free, with no more carb cheats and to remain strictly low carb/keto (except for Christmas dinner at the parentals because mommas cooking is BOMB 😍🤣😍 but that's the only time). And my fitness goal is to workout 3 times a week because I've seriously procrastinated on getting on the workout bandwagon long enough 🙈🙈🙈 so since there's 14 weeks (and a couple of days) left before 2018 is here that makes for 42 workouts before the year ends (14 weeks × 3/week=42 🤣😂). Let's do this 💪🙆♀️🙏

Do you like chicory drink 🍵? If not, after reading this, you'll want to drink it more often :) The popularity of chicory was due to its unique composition. It is used in medicine, cooking and as a substitute for coffee. It brought my attention because it is successfully used in the prevention and treatment of diabetes and in the fight against excess weight.
Substances contained in chicory have the effect:
✅antimicrobial (decoctions, tinctures, compresses from the root of chicory) ✅anti-inflammatory (decoction of herbs used inside and externally in the form of lotions)
✅ sedative (thanks to the group B vitamins included in it)
✅diuretic (used in the treatment of kidneys, with kidney stones, with diseases of the bladder, with high blood pressure this property will be useful, but with the low blood pressure it is better to avoid chicory - it can lower the pressure even more)
✅ choleretic (speeds up the process of dissolution of stones in the gallbladder)
✅ vasodilator (chicory drink is useful for hypertensive patients)
Chicory used for treatment:
⚫diabetes (high inulin content leads to a decrease in blood sugar)
⚫ obesity (inulin improves the metabolism of cholesterol, triglycerides and blood phospholipids, normalizes metabolism, lowers blood sugar levels)
⚫Gastrointestinal diseases (substances contained in chicory reduce the inflammatory processes of the mucous membrane of the stomach and intestines, inulin improves digestion, promotes the development of useful intestinal microflora - this is a natural PREBIOTIC)
⚫ cardiovascular diseases (chicory has a sedative effect on nervous systemNS, intibine in chicory improves heart function and strengthens blood vessels, inulin reduces the risk of CVD)
⚫ liver disease (improves liver function - can increase blood flow and metabolic processes in the liver). ❌Chicory is contraindicated in children under 3 years old. Do not combine chicory with antibiotics, do not take in case of bronchial asthma.
In other cases - enjoy the chicory and use its healing properties to the fullest.

I love the coffee cup I grabbed today!
Hershey's four food groups sound delightful! 🍎🍫 As I mentioned in my video, for anyone watching their waistlines and sugar intake and would still like to drink cool and tasty drinks- you can!
Simply watch your add ins and amounts!
I made a pumpkin spice flavored K cup, added a teaspoon of Hershey unsweet cocoa powder (antioxidants), a dash of stevia, and today, a tablespoon of low fat milk.
I also love almond and soy milk!
Avoid empty calories and unnecessary sugar with small adjustments like:
One less spoonful of sugar!
Try alternative sweetener!
Low fat milk instead of whole!
Dash of cinnamon to lower sugar levels!
Try black! It's not that bad!
Little switches make HUGE differences!
Have a terrific and tasty Tuesday everyone!
