Big News! My secret and body transformation revealed….

September 18, 2014 by Melanie Faris

Hey Everyone,

Where have I been? I know you all are probably wondering what the heck happened to me. Yes, I know, I’m so sorry! BUT, I have good reason…

So over the past 3 months or so, I guess you can say I have “secretly” undergone a big transformation, and I will continue to do so for the next while. Hang in there, I’m going to explain.

Not many people know about my new journey, except for a few select people. But here is “the plan” I have been following, with pics and my secret to be revealed afterwards.

#1. Getting lots of rest. Yes you heard me. I have spent more time on the couch than ever before.

#2. Eating very specific foods and usually changing my routine weekly to switch it up.

#3. Walking instead of running. It is too hard on my joints.

#4. Less time spent at the gym.

#5. Following my feelings instead of forcing myself to “eat perfect” or exercise every day.

That’s the basis of my routine right now. Do I sound crazy? Yes a little. But you will see how it has worked for me…

This is me before as an avid follower of the “clean eating diet” with a very strict gym schedule and meal plan:


I worked hard. I did not “cheat” and exercise was my life! I was squatting as much as some of the boys at the gym and proud of it. It was fun seeing my body transform and to watch my progress.

This was the program I followed with incredible results:

So since you are wondering what I look like now and my newest transformation, see below:




Oh and did I mention…


That is my BIG SURPRISE! We are soooo excited :). I will do a new post for you soon to give you the details on how I have been feeling and the changes I have noticed in my body. I will also tell you the story of how I found out this exciting news. I wanted to give you all a quick update so you all would know what has been going on in the life of Mel. Sorry for not posting much lately, but now that I am feeling better, I will be online more often! Be sure to check back soon.

Much Love,

Mel and Baby =).
