What is food to you?

Recently, I have been evaluating my relationship with food and exactly what it means to me.  For most of my life, I've had a very unhealthy relationship with food.  It was a coping mechanism.  I would eat to celebrate something, eat when I'm bored, eat when I'm actually hungry (and even when I'm not), eat… Continue reading What is food to you?

A Lesson from my Brother

  We are human.  We have human experiences.  We experience heartache.  Sometimes we don’t reach our goals exactly when we want them.  Sometimes, we have to adjust our goals because they end up not being what we want.  We stumble.

Have you slipped up on your journey to be a healthier you?  I'm not going to lie, I HAVE.  I didn't gain any weight, but I sure didn't lose any either.  But let's be realistic, life happens.  I started traveling every other week, work picked up, and I've started packing for my move.  It seems like there's… Continue reading So you’ve fallen off a bit…

Why I lost weight…

Since I've been on my weight loss journey I've lost around 70+ pounds and people ask me all the time, "Alex, what was your motivation?"
