About Lexy

 I eat, I eat a lot, but it’s food! Not plastic, processed, and packaged garbage that the food industry tries to pawn off as food. I only eat things I can pronounce and now I'm a comfortable size 4.

 When was the last time you had a heaping bowl of propylene glycol and polysorbate? If you eat cake from the bakery at the local grocery store, than you most likely had the same ingredients used in tile grout and brake fluid. Yum!

Yes, it does takes more work to prepare whole foods, but it's worth it. I know what’s in my food and I know it’s fresh. I know my foods have all the nutrients I need to give me lots of energy.

Over a five year period I had gained about 60 pounds and on my 5’4” frame, that wasn’t a pretty sight! In the summer of 2011 I was on the verge of a size 16 and I would have zipper and button imprints on my gut at the end of the day. I hated trying on new clothes and would even cut the tags out of my clothing to feel better. I had been thin most of my life and even competed in Miss America pageants. But after graduating from college and marring the love of my life, I didn't make my health a priority.

It was time for a change, so I spent months eating what I thought was healthy…..you know those frozen so called “healthly” lunch entree’s and went to the gym at least 5 times a week…. but I saw no results. I wasn’t eating fast food for lunch, but I now realize I wasn’t putting real food in my body either.

This past July I ate my pride “no pun intended” and reached out for help. I met with one of the leading doctors of natureo path nutrition in the nation and now I'm thrilled to say I have lost over 50 lbs and my husband has lost over 75 lbs. I'm eating clean and putting good actual food in my body. You know what, It works! And you can do it too.

I'm excited to join with Carrie on this blog and bring my experiences to the masses. Carrie and I have been friends for over 20 years, we have certainly seen each others highs and lows. However, I'm happy we have been able to transform our lives together and it’s a good thing we have unlimited texting. I hope you find our blog helpful and good luck on your own journey to better health.
