Do you feel like you’re trying everything right, but your weight still won't budge? Or it's going up?
Desperate attempts to lose weight can be so frustrating and create a real stress in our lives. In fact, I'll go as far as saying that weight is the NUMBER ONE stress for many women I know.
If this sounds familiar, don’t despair. It doesn't have to be this hard. There is usually an underlying reason to stubborn weight loss.
While taking a little break from our busy lives as the cold winter days sets in, we’re hiding out at our home here in Central Mexico. My husband grew up here, so our visits are always full of warm, loving friends and family.
We all love Mexican food. As tasty as it is, I don’t feel awesome after eating it since many dishes are heavy and rich. So I have fun in the kitchen re-creating some of our favorites that are fresh, healthy and energizing.
The day we arrived, I headed over to the local grocery store here and grabbed all the essentials for making healthy, nourishing meals with all the best local Mexican foods.
You don’t actually need to be in Mexico to make this one… a healthy twist on my favorite Mexican dish – tostadas! To make the perfect tostada, you’ll need crunchy tortillas, creamy refried beans, shredded chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, avocados, cilantro and a few salsa choices. To make it fun for the whole family, set up a little tostada bar. Place all the ingredients in separate bowls on the table and everyone can create their very own unique dish. It’s always a hit!

Today I have a short story for you…
A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which read, “I am blind, please help.”
There were only a few coins in the hat – spare change from folks as they hurried past.
A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words.
Then he put the sign back in the boy’s hand so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.
Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy.
That afternoon, the man who had changed the sign returned to see how things were.
The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, “Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?”

The thyroid gland is a small butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of the neck. It weighs only approximately 20 grams, but the hormones it secretes control growth and metabolism. The primary circulating thyroid hormones – thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) – are essential regulators of crucial body functions such as heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature. Adequate level of T4, and its efficient conversion to T3, also ensures that we have energy and burn carbohydrates and fats at an optimal rate.
