After giving birth to my twin girls I was left with the dreaded extra weight all of us women anticipate, I was weighing in over 220 lbs.

I was feeling uncomfortable and dissatisfied with  the shape of my body.

There were things that kept playing in my mind that were discouraging my journey to lose weight and feel good.

Well, I got through those difficult times and I learned a lot about weight loss, and the transitions we have to go through mentally to reach our goals.

I have to say stepping on stage in my  first Bikini Athlete Competition placing Top 3, really was a defining moment for me.

  • It made me realize that my weight could have got in the way of the virtue that was ahead of me.
  • I now make it my mission to encourage women to fall in love with loving their bodies.
  • There is so much stuff wrapped up in the accomplishment of your weight loss goal.
  • There is so many things that will flourish from you being focused on making your health a priority.
  • Reaching a goal is a powerful thing and it will change everything about you.
  • I know losing weight can be one of the most emotional journeys to embark on; filled with excitement and sadness all toward a goal.

Many give up before they even try; most give up before they reach their goal. But not you, not this time.

Here are 5 reasons you shouldn’t give up on your weight loss goals.

1. You deserve to live your best life.

If your weight is weighing you down and keeping you from soaring, you need to let it go.

2. Your health will thank you.

Being overweight can off balance so many things in our bodies. You don’t need to be skinny, but it is important to be healthy.

If your weight has left the healthy zone, you owe it to your “BEST LIFE” to get on track.

3. It’s time to put on those jeans.

We ALL have that one pair of jeans. After I had my twins I seen a cute pair of jeans while I was out shopping and I just got them and assumed I could fit them. Nope.

They did not fit when I got home. But instead of returning them, I kept them as motivation.

It took me a year, but I got into them!

4. You’ll be that much further tomorrow.

The only way you can get better, is if you start.

There is absolutely no other way around it.

5. You’re worth it!

You deserve to live your best life…

And your best life is not weighed down by being overweight.

If you want to wear something, you should be able to and feel comfortable.

If you want to go run after your kids, you should be able to.

Don’t let the ever changing, ever fault finding, ever doubtful fear keep you from going after you.

Oh yes, you can be just as fabulous as you want to be, because you already have what it takes.

Instead of thinking impossible, say I’m Possible!!!

Michael B. Jordan Gained 15 Pounds of Muscle for Killmonger Role

Wallace Has Come A Mighty Long Way!



Killmonger, Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan

Erik Killmonger is a very powerful character in Marvel’s Black Panther. The supervillain, played by Michael B. Jordan, along with his dominating spirit and his pain, was just as important to the story line as the evolution of T’Challa. While there’s generally an antagonist in films (spoiler alert coming if you haven’t seen the film) – we didn’t find Killmonger to be so much of a villain after all.

Corey Calliet is the man behind Michael B. Jordan’s gains, and arguably another person who contributed the overwhelming success of the movie. The celebrity trainer, seen now on Revenge Body on E! helped Jordan bulk up, as well as help other stars like Angela Bassett, be at peak physical condition for Black Panther. Calliet has worked with Jordan in the past, most notably for Creed and the Fantastic Four reboot.

“When you see him, you need to be scared, you need to be intimidated. We don’t want the nice, young-looking Michael,” Calliet said in an interview with Men’s Health Mag. He also describes his training style to that of an artist taking a chisel to a block of marble. “I’m talking about sculpting a body, not just conditioning it to be fast…I wanted to make his shoulders look better. I needed his upper chest to pop. I needed his back to tell a story. I wanted his back to look like a globe, like a map.”

So how did Jordan get his gains? Calliet trained the actor two to three times a daily and Jordan ate six meals per day. Get more details on Calliet’s training with details with Jordan here .

5 Reasons People Quit Going To The Gym



1)  I don’t have time to workout

It takes 21 days to develop a habit. Diligently plan out the next 3 weeks, incorporate at least 30 minutes of exercise into your daily regimen for 3-4 times a week. Make having an active life intentional. Put it on the same level as having lunch or getting sleep. As you work-out, it will soon become a non-negotiable, similar to eating and sleeping.

2)  It’s Too Crowded And People Watch Me

The gym isn’t the only option that will help you reach your body goals. There are various in-home regimens that you can following YouTube or your favorite social media fitness professionals. Fitness is doing more movement than you did the day before. Lunch break walks, morning workout routines, and bike rides all support your desire to have an active (and private) lifestyle.

3)  I’m Not Losing Any Weight

Getting the body you desire requires a lifestyle change. Oftentimes we believe workouts are enough, but eating and sleeping are also main components for weight-loss. Fat is burned during your body’s recovery stage and muscle building process. As you work out, obtain 6-8 hours of sleep to maximize gains. Clean eating cannot be overlooked, a high protein-low carb diet is key. We have to break our traditional mindsets of consuming 3 meals a day and get accustomed to eating 6 times a day. Eating 6 times includes 3 meals along with 3 snacks, which can also include smoothies and shakes.

4)  No One Will Know If I Quit 

Accountability is vital to starting a new workout routine. Identify a workout partner. If you can’t find one, write a contract with yourself. Sign your contract and hang it somewhere so you can see it everyday. Knowing you have a commitment to yourself or your partner will help you form healthy, weight-loss habits.

5)  I Just Hate Working Out!!!

You may hate the gym, but everyone loves a good reflection in the mirror. Everyone wants to add years to their life and working out does just that. You have to ask yourself every day, “does my lifestyle add years to my life or subtract them?”Medications and hospital bills can become very expensive so prevention has to be the focus. Remember: the healthier we are, the better the reflection we have in the mirror.
