Cori Then and Now…Transformation Tuesday


Cori is an avid football fan and is loyal to our Kansas City Chiefs.  Last spring she set out on a transformation that has changed her life.

Not only does she look fantastic but she feels healthier and happier with her progress. She is a mother of three active children and is excited to be setting a good example for them by being healthier and taking care of herself.

Cori’s encouragement for others is to be prepared for hard work.  The results will not be instant and expect setbacks.  It really is about making small steps towards a bigger goal.

How did she do it?  Hard work.  Nothing compensates for hard work.  She began running and really watching her diet.  Her diet focus was not only about healthier choices but also portion control.   Cori has completed two half-marathons and has plans for more.

Go Cori and Go Chiefs!

The Calorie Creep

But Doctor I am not eating that much…

While there are always exceptions rarely does one become overweight by not eating.

The balancing act of  creating a calorie deficit is key for weight loss.  Please see my prior blog post regarding the fundamentals of weight loss:

Calories Consumed < Calories Expended= Weight Losswtmgt4

It can be one misstep in your day that will sabotage all your good efforts.  Stealing the term introduced to me by an inspiring patient, I would like to bring “the calorie creep” to life in the pictures below:

Keep in mind it does not have to be junk food that can be your calorie creep–avoid the creep in whatever form!
