Shelley'sStory, Videos October 26, 2016
At the end of 2015 I found myself crumbled, broken and in a pool of tears. I poured my soul to a friend and she encouraged me to take a break, go travel and get my life together. That's exactly what I did . . . and I filmed it all for you to see.

Take responsibility for your behaviors. Mine your culinary skills for recipes that are body and weight loss friendly. When I followed that formula, I began to really honor what was soft, happy, sweet, sacred and wise about me. And embracing that reflected in what I chose to put on my plate and in my body. I began moving on from bad things, bad habits, bad situations, bad characters and bad spirits. I stopped acting like I was okay, when I truly wasn't. I expressed disappointment in my life openly. I asked for help when I needed it. I became my own partner and ally. I responded to my hunger with love, respect and appreciation instead of some calculated, portion controlled, bland ass meal.
