The first time we heard about being addicted to being overweight it really resonated with us. We're both married with kids and have a successful business and have been struggling to release weight on and off for years.

We found out of Michelle Melendez and her program, "Get the Body You Love In 90-Days" and knew it was for us!

Check it out at:

One thing we really liked about her program was it specifically designed around the woman who has struggled with her weight on and off for years or most or all of her life.

Have you ever felt: Hopeless that you can't lose weight? Frustrated with yourself that you're unmotivated to exercise? Guilty that it seems to be easier for other women than for you? Ashamed that weight is STILL and issue after All these years?! Then there is something you'll be relieved to find out. You are probably ADDICTED to the struggle of being overweight!

She only takes 15 women on this program so if you want to check it out go to:

Michelle's program is the first we've found that goes over this emotional addiction to the struggle of being overweight!

It gives you: Tools to release this addiction Workouts with Positive Affirmations to keep you inspired to workout An understanding of why losing weight has been so hard and how to make it easier A nutrition plan that works for you body and leaves you feeling good about yourself Tons of support There are even bonuses with this program link: How to Lose the Last 10-20 Pounds and Double Your Energy Video and

Money Saving Tips

- Choose off-season times in your area to save as much as 50% on venues and other services. While you’re at it, choose any day other than Saturday.

- Cut that list! The less people you invite the cheaper your wedding will be. Consider using less attendants also…this will cut even more cost.

New Ideas

Cupcake decorating contest with a twist:

Drop a ring into batch of cupcake mix. Keep the cupcakes undecorated and supply your guests with cupcake decorating items. Have your guests decorate the cupcakes, but do not let them know about the ring. Whoever has the prettiest cupcake wins a prize and then right before they take a bite of their creation, let them know whoever has the ring is next in line to be married!


Dear LeeAnn,

Help! My wedding date is November 2014 and I need to make some extra money. Any ideas on ways I can raise some much needed funds for my big day?




Dear Karin,

You have plenty of time to get some extra money and also get a good grasp on your budget. Here are a few ideas that may help...

Prosper is peer-to-peer lending—a popular alternative to traditional loans and investing options. They connect people who need money with those who have money to everyone prospers!

Here's how it works: Borrowers choose a loan amount, purpose and post a loan listing. Investors view loan listings and invest in listings that meet their criteria. Once the process is complete, borrowers make fixed monthly payments and investors receive a portion of those payments directly to their Prosper account.

Love It! Hate It!

Love It!:

*Baby Powder! It's a great quick fix if your wedding gown gets dirty. Keep it in your emergency bag on your big day.

Hate It!:

*Stuffy wedding portraits.


Farmer's Markets!! We love them. You can pick up herbs, fancy lettuce and cabbage, green apples or pears. Place them in different pots or containers for a very cheap chic centerpiece.


Marriage is an Athenic weaving together of families, of two souls with their individual fates and destinies, of time and eternity--everyday life married to the timeless mysteries of the soul.
