Be Well on TCL. Welcome Peeps!

Click here to see my transformation story yesterday on Twin Cities Live – KSTP TV – Twin Cities

LoriwithhostsTCLI have a confession to make. I skipped my morning workout.

Let me start this blog by saying: WOW and THANK YOU! I am continually amazed by the outpouring of support 4.5 years into this journey. But mostly, it’s SO COOL to see all of the new folks we’re welcoming into the In the Equation community. Welcome peeps! Read more

Transformation Confirmed. Whooo Hooo!

Body-composition testing identifies your body fat and lean mass (muscles, bones, etc.). A person’s body fat percentage is the total weight of your fat divided by your total weight, and consists of both essential body fat and stored body fat. Read more
