I am so excited to announce the release of my latest book, Walking The Weight Off For Dummies, which is available in stores nationwide today! Writing a book is certainly a labor of love, but when you are passionate about the topic, it feels more like a hobby then work. Weight loss is one of my specialty areas and I find I am constantly dispelling myths to my clients that they must perform high intensity workouts for hours upon hours each and every day to see results. This thinking holds a lot of people back from even wanting to get started with exercise as they feel intimidated by the process.
The truth is, although high intensity workouts do get you results, just walking at a moderate pace can help you to see amazing results as well. In fact, when you look at the people who have been most successful at not just losing weight, but keeping it off long term, the #1 form of exercise they have used is walking!
Just by putting one foot in front of the other and walking a few minutes each day or by striving to increase your step count day after day, you can:
- Shed pounds and inches
- Banish belly fat
- Add years to your life
- Lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels
- Reduce blood glucose levels
- Fight against diseases such as heart disease and diabetes
- Boost mood and energy
- Raise metabolism
And most importantly, be a happier and healthier you!

Here it is- Joey’s very first modeling gig. No, I am not working on making him a baby model (I don’t think he would sit still long enough for it), but he was a great partner in shooting the exercise images for my newest book, Walking The Weight Off For Dummies, which is released this coming Monday!
Throughout the book, I discuss the various ways your can easily walk off pounds, lose inches, and shed belly fat. And with this, I devote specific chapters to special conditions and how walking is best suited for each condition (such as heart disease, diabetes, etc). So of course I wanted to devote a full section of the book to walking during pregnancy and after childbirth. Joey’s role was to help show various ways to walk of the pounds after your baby arrives to get back to your pre-baby weight and body. He helped to demonstrate Mommy & Me exercises that can be done while walking as well as exercises that can be done with the stroller. It was cold outside when he did the shoot, but he was a good sport. Luckily, thanks to our fantastic photographer Kristen Rath Photography, and my wonderful fitness models Pat and Alyson, we had his photos done in less than a few minutes and back inside in the warm house.
I’d say for his first modeling gig, he did a great job!
After finding yourself sitting the first few weeks of motherhood holding your baby, feeding your baby, and trying to grab a few minutes of sleep when you can, you may start to feel like your bottom is becoming a little flatter than it once was. But, by taking just a few minutes out of your day, two to three times per week, you can firm up your glutes and get your perk backside back before you know it 🙂
