Small changes eventually lead to a healthy lifestyle
That is a question that I never gave much thought until my 17 year old son was diagnosed with Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis, a rare blood disease, that was unheard of 50 years ago.  Why?  Well, I started investigating and what I found out was quite astonishing.  First of all, toxins exist all around us.  After WWII, they didn't really know what to do with all the chemical warfare, so it ended up in agriculture and industry which means the air we breathe is toxic.

Thanksgiving!  Memories of fires in the chimney, smells of turkey wafting from the oven and my mom's voice coming from the kitchen, quickly come to mind.  I remember playing games with my family, chatting and laughing around the table as we all enjoyed mom and grandma's cooking and begging my dad to change the channel from all the boring football games (eventually he would fall asleep and we'd get to watch something else).  I don't ever remember worrying about how many calories I was consuming or whether or not the turkey was free-range org

My husband and I attended the USMC Birthday Ball this past weekend.  The USMC Ball is always a special event.  Women spend weeks preparing, getting a special dress, shoes, jewelry, their hair done, make-up and the men spend extra care on preparing their uniforms.  Most of my clients who are Marine Corps spouses name the USMC Ball as an event they're training to lose weight for and look fit in their ball gown.
