Shannon Beats Smoking, Drinking. . . AND Her Food Coping Triggers

Dear Body Buds, I remember having my first real conversation with Shannon after she won one of my 8-week Challenges–it was one that really struck me with the beauty of CHANGE. She told me her story of food addiction after needing a new coping mechanism after quitting smoking and drinking. I was amazed to hear of her resilience as she continued learning, working, trying, and achieving! Here is a small part of her story that I am sure you will find as inspiring as I have: “3 years ago I was a cigarette smoker and an alcoholic. My family and I started going to church and I quit those things along with coffee, all at once cold turkey. To help with all of the different cravings I was experiencing, I turned to food. I allowed myself to indulge in anything and everything. I ended up getting heavier than when I...

Tonya Learns to Love Herself For Lasting Changes

Dear Body Buds, It’s always a privilege when I get an email from somebody who tells me of their success with the Power Foods Lifestyle. Tonya was one of those that kept her story to herself . . . until I pulled it out of her! Tonya had won my book in a contest after liking the Body Buddies Facebook page on the recommendation from a friend. She got lucky and won the paperback book I was giving away, from which she said, “I immediately connected to you.” After reading the book, Tonya made changes in her nutritional intake and ended up losing 30 pounds! “I didn’t have a good ‘before’ picture because I refused to have pictures taken of me. I’m making LIFETIME changes and will not be ashamed of who I am in the process. I’m learning to love me because the only way to make a true...

Abe Ward Picks up his Metabolism!

Start Weight: 177 lb. Final Weight: 175 lb. 8-week Challenge 2014 Butte, Montana “My girlfriend, Shaye Murphy, led me to Body Buddies. Her cousin had worked with you in the past and suggested we try it. I always wanted to see what the difference would be if I ate clean. I had very limited experience. I had some idea from coaches when I played college football, but nothing really solid–nothing tailored to me. I pretty much ate what I knew how to make and tried to eat as many meals as I could to gain some mass. During this 8-week challenge I have experienced what true clean eating can do for me. I lost fat where I didn’t even know I had fat! I was able to prove to myself that I can eat healthy if I set my mind to it! I think my favorite part of this whole challenge is the breakfasts. I...

“Why in the World Would I Run a Kajillion Miles to Never Lose a Pound?”

Dear Body Buds, There are times I come across an individual who so wholly grasps the message of Body Buddies and what it means to live a strategically healthy lifestyle that I ask them to share their story. Lindsey is one these individuals. As a beautiful mom of two and a friend from my middle and high school years, I was keenly interested in seeing if she would latch onto the message and capture all that strategy can do in one’s life. She exceeded any expectation I had and I truly am delighted for her! Enjoy her story. I’m sure you’ll be as inspired as I was. (Way to go, Linds!) Love your bud, Kristy Jo “If there is one thing in the world that is so frustrating is working towards a weight loss goal and never seeing the scale change…especially after having a baby! I am a mom of 2. I gained...
