Welcome Marisa!

Well….here we are with – shall I say – contestant #2! Meet Marissa  – she, along with Andrea, will be going through a 12 week “Take Control” journey – of their health, their bodies and their lives! Similarly to Andrea, Marissa is a competitive person…and also preparing to compete in a pageant – the Mrs. Texas United States Pageant – this will also be her FIRST! Like Andrea, she feels this will give her a “goal” an event to motivate throughout her journey and keep her focused. Based on my humble experience, as well experience with my clients, this is what I have to say to that…the desire to … [Read more...]
