You do not have to sacrifice your milk supply to lose weight. You don’t  have to give up dessert to lose weight. Melissa was able to lose almost 30 pounds just by focusing on her nutrition.

  • You can lose weight and keep your milk supply.
  • You can lose weight and still eat treats.
  • You will only fail if you continue to stand in your own way.
  • You have to get out of your comfort zone to grow. Growing and stretching takes a lot of work but it is so worth it!
