WHO Is dr. marcella wilson?
Hi, there! I am Dr. Marcella Wilson. By day, I am an online professor teaching Information Systems and Computer Science. But at night, after my family has gone to sleep, I put my mommy blogger hat on and blog until the wee hours of the morning.
What is This Blog About?
This is a health and fitness blog. The purpose of this blog is to help busy moms lose weight. I am a proud mommy to 3 (amazing!) children. A 10 year old and a set of twins. Even though I lost the baby weight pretty quickly after I had my first child, I didn’t think I could ever lose the baby weight from after having my twins. Mainly because, I didn’t have as much time to sleep and work out like I used to. I feel like I have done every diet under the sun and was over the whole cycle of dieting, working out, depriving myself, losing weight and then gaining it all back again. I had just kinda given up on losing weight. I began to believe that my body would look like it used to before I had children.
But I had an experience that would change everything.
I had an AMAZING opportunity to be a participant in Redbook Magazine’s Wedding Dress Challenge. The goal was to lose enough weight so I could fit back into my wedding dress. Over the course of several months, Redbook magazine provided me with a celebrity fitness trainer, a nutritionist and all the tools I needed to lose weight. During this wonderful experience, I lost 18 pounds and learned from the pros about working out, dieting and weight loss. And I love to share all that information with my readers. So if you wanna more, check out my blog posts, “How Redbook Magazine Helped Me Lose Weight Fast” or “What I Ate to Lose 10 Pounds in a Month.”
But it was such a life-changing experience because I felt like I really learned how to eat right and be healthy. So, I decided to create this blog as an online record of my weight loss journey. It serves to motivate, support and encourage other moms, as well as myself, to eat right, exercise and be healthy each day for ourselves and our families.
This blog is also a resource for moms who want to start their own blog. I earn 100% of my income online. Therefore, many of my blog readers, family members and mom friends have asked me to help them create their own blogs because they wanted to stay home with their kids and make money online. They want to work less and spend more time with their family. They know a profitable blog would allow them to contribute to their household income and provide things for their family like private school, vacations, dance class and gymnastics. So, I began writing blog posts to help moms start a blog and make money online.

- I don’t watch scary movies anymore. I’m a scardy cat. I will watch a slasher flick if it’s not too gory. But horror films? Nope, can’t do it.
