Q: Hello Erika, How are you? I respect you for giving out the information that you have for us women. I just had a few questions for you. Every year I say I am going to eat right and lose weight and I don't. I have gained so much weight through the years that now every time I do get on the treadmill my knees hurt. They hurt so bad that when I lay down at night they throb inside. I know it has to do with the excess weight I have gained in my legs and around my knees. What kind of exercise do you suggest for this and did you go through this also?
That nasty sugar habit? It's messing up your sleep, and keeping you in a cycle of restless sleep, sugary treats, and weight gain. Break the cycle now.

Q: Erika, you said something about having an internal tape that plays negative thoughts over and over in your head...
So many women say, "I hate looking in the mirror," "looking in the mirror makes me want to cry." You'd be surprised how easy it is to change that.
Sure, coffee can give you a nice burst of energy leading into your workouts, but are there any side-effects you should be worried about? Yes.
Q: I can tell it's working because I feel active....but how long does it take to start actually seeing a difference? I'm not seeing anything!
