Here I chat with Hollywood actor, author and health activist, Lance Alexander who launched his first book and health campaign.

In this episode I talk to Lance Alexander, a teen hollywood actor from my hometown in Ohio. You might know Lance from his role as Elvis, a recurring role on the award-winning Netflix show “Family Reunion.” Like many, during the Pandemic of 2020, he was isolated and fighting depression and decided to fight back. Lance had a public struggle of being overweight and bullied most of his childhood. I love that he is inspired to share his journey. Here Lance shares his motivation for creating his book and campaign, “From Junk to Hunk.” Lance shares how the key to eliminating “junk” is acknowledging that transformations can require both mental and physical adjustments and applies to all areas of life, not just your size. He shared that on this journey, he learned that mental transformations might be even more difficult than physical transformations. Lance also witnessed that permanent change requires mental resilience and self-belief. Especially for being just 18 years young, I am loving Lance's self awareness and heart to share his experience with others. Listen in and meet my new friend, Lance.

Hugs, Lorri
