What's in your Skincare?

Ladies!! The environmental pollutants we deal with every day are not helping us age well!

Turning 38 this year, I decided it was time to take my skin care seriously. My mom died at 42 from cancer. I'd be lying if I said that wasn't resonating with me right now. Chemicals in our skin care products have been linked to causing cancer.

That's why I sought out and found a plant based, chemical free skincare line that is highly effective!

All of these ladies are using Sotoks (like botox!) and One Drop Wonder! You can save $14 by purchasing the combo. The products will last you 3-4 months!!

I can't wait for mine to arrive!

If you'd like the link to check out the products - email me at!!

I’ve struggled with food my entire life

I know many of you have never known any version of Rachel other than the girl who goes to the gym everyday. For 26 years, there was a very different Rachel.
I’ve struggled with food my entire life. I can remember always being on a “diet” when I was younger. Always being the fat kid.
At 15, when my mom died, my unhealthy relationship with food got exponentially worse.
I can remember coming home from high school, walking past the table of food people had brought over and picking up the plate of brownies and going straight to my room and closing the door. I ate the entire plate.
So while you may think that Plexus is just a business to me, it’s far more.
No one understands more than I do how hard it is to lose weight. But more importantly, no one understand the damage you do to your body by feeding it processed foods, foods high in sugar, etc. My stomach pains were so bad that they did a biopsy to see if they could determine the cause. All they said was that it was inflamed and put me on an ant…

🙈 Transparency Post 🙊

🙈 Transparency Post ðŸ™Š

On Friday, I shared with all of you how my stomach is one of my biggest insecurities. The picture on the left is what my stomach looked like after having lost 80lbs. I was the smallest I’d ever been in my adult life, I monitored every piece of food that went into my mouth, I did cardio 5-6 times a week and lifted 5-6 times a week. My level of commitment was intense. Borderline psychotic.
I was so disappointed that I had worked so hard and fought so hard to become this version of myself only to have this constant remirnder of the 10+ years (from when my mom died forward) that I found comfort in food.
I got so much attention from guys everywhere I went because I exuded an enormous amount of confidence - with clothes on. But the thought of being in even a two piece bathing suit was out of the question. I always joked that I was complete false advertising with clothes on. I looked like I had this tiny body, flat stomach and big boobs because I wore clothes that flatte…

After Pictures Update

I am truly sorry that I haven't posted in a while. Not a whole lot has changed in terms of my body as of late. Well, that's not entirely true. I've been working on my tan - and let's be honest, everything looks better tan! I've also put on a few pounds. I'm not sure if it's due to the stress at work or the sheer amounts of alcohol I've consumed as a result of that stress. Either way - I'm up to 187lbs, which is clearly not where I want to be. I've decided it's time to redirect my energy and start using exercise as an outlet instead of alcohol. It's not an excuse, but some days I just want to go out with friends and vent about all the things that are stressing me out - and as a society, what do we do to be social - either go to a bar for drinks or a restaurant for food. I did get my best friend to join the gym but that presented another problem - too much talking and not enough working out. Like with everything in life, it's…

My Body - Today

I'm sorry I haven't updated pictures in a while.  Not a whole lot has changed other than the fact that I started working out again and went from 165lbs at the time of the procedure to 180lbs today.  I'm still in my size 8 pants but I can feel the difference.  My stomach feels swollen all the time for the extra weight.  No one else can tell because I still wear the body garment but I have got to do something to lose at least 10 lbs.  I'm extremely stressed out right now in my home life which I think is a driving factor, but come the 1st I'm moving so fingers crossed, life will improve tremendously.

 Now this picture below, is with the flash on so it looks different than the one directly beneath it even though they were taken seconds apart.
 This is what I mean when I talk about dimples on my stomach or bumpy looking.  It's not flat and smooth.  Unfortunately, you never know how the skin is going to reattach itself to the muscle.
 You can see that I still have so…

Thighs One Month Out

I'm sorry I haven't been real good about updating the after pictures. I got a promotion at work and it's been keeping me VERY busy but I love it :)

As for the procedure, the skin is still not completely back to normal from the Laser Resurfacing.  The skin isn't perfect, but I'm giving it more time before I make any decisions. 

This first picture is from the 25th .. it shows the skin issues I am referring to

Here are two pictures from today.  Tomorrow will be exactly one month out.

You can see from the side view that there is absolutely no bulge anymore!  I can actually wear dress pants to work now.  It's amazing :) There is still a lot of healing going on.  I'm going through the hardening and softening still.  Some days it looks good and others I am like, ugh.  I know that it is just going to take time.  I really need a tan too.  Everything looks better tan :) lol .. but I don't want to make it appear better than it is for the purposes of giving the mo…
