Wishing You a Merry Christmas, With Love!

I always get a little extra sentimental around the holidays as I reflect back on the past year and everything I have experienced, and WE have experienced. Most of it is a total whirlwind of events, commitments, long days, travel, driving the kids around, and drinking lots of Starbucks (a vital part of my life!)…but at the root of all of it, what stands out to me the most is YOU!!!

The people who support and encourage me and my family, the people who read and comment on this blog and on social media, the people who have supported Chris and me from the beginning days of Extreme Weight Loss.

YOU make all of this worthwhile and rewarding.

 YOU recognize the passion we have for transforming lives through healthy living, and YOU allow us to be part of your world. Christmastime is the best time of year for telling people how much you appreciate them, so know that I appreciate YOU!!!

Thank you for being such a big part of MY world.  

I am also so very thankful for this goofy crew of beautiful people who I am privileged to call MINE.  Oh, I wouldn’t trade my Powell Pack for anything in the world.  They give my life fullness and meaning, and they keep me grounded, reminding me of what is truly most important in life. I am beyond blessed. And even more blessed now to have our two new baby pups (not pictured)…who remain unnamed!

This babe makes every adventure (and long day of work) a blast…and these four faces make this mama’s heart melt.

I mean, seriously…






Have a VERY MERRY Christmas! So much love and appreciation from me to you. I am more excited than ever before to head into the New Year, and I have no doubt we will make 2018 an amazing year together!

  1. Hi Heidi, what a beautiful family. You are truly blesse. I am a mother of 3 wonderful children. Desire? is 17, Dale is 14 and Colton is 11. My husband, Dale and I are writing to you hoping you could help. Our daughter who is very gifted with singing, planning to be a High School music teacher, is battling with her weight/depression. We know if she could drop the 15-20 pounds that she needs to, she wouldn’t lay on her bed all day. Will you be doing show in 2018 on getting fit? We feel she need a positive role model to help her get on track. We would love to hear from you.

    1. Hi Bernice: It sounds like you have a beautiful family! The show has been cancelled, but you can get some tips on how to help Desiree in this post: https://heidipowell.net/7201. And this post talks about Chris and Heidi’s #1 transformation tool, and it could help Desiree too: https://heidipowell.net/8679. She could also use Chris and Heidi’s new app – Transform with Chris and Heidi (http://thetransformapp.com), but we’d recommend she discuss it with her healthcare team first since she is still a teen. She can develop those healthy habits she’s wanting one step at a time! 🙂
