Who Is Kiesha R. Easley?

Kiesha is one of the first bloggers I connected with when I started blogging, and we never lost contact. We have always been supportive of each other.

She contacted me and asked me if I would review her new book, and without hesitation, I said, yes!

I love it when I know the person whose book I am reading and reviewing. It makes it even more special.

Although it took me some time to write this review, Worth the Weight is definitely worth the read.

Introducing Worth the Weight


Author: Kiesha R. Easley

Pages: 88

Worth the Weight is one woman’s journey of how she went from 230 pounds to 153.  Kiesha lost over 70 pounds and shares what she did.

Kiesha writing style is conversational. I felt like she was chatting with me over a cup of tea while sharing her remarkable transformation story.

I am proud of Kiesha’s accomplishments of regaining her energy and her health.

Whatever we set our minds to do we can do it, but we must be ready.  After many unsuccessful tries at losing weight, Kiesha made up in her mind that she was prepared to do whatever she had to do to feel better, and she did it.

About Worth the Weight

Kiesha followed Dr. Gundry’s recommendations in the Plant Paradox, for which I have written a book review.

Kiesha shared her journey which started in July of 2017 (230 pounds), and by April 2018 she weighed in at 153 pounds.

Her determination to get rid of chronic fatigue, pain, and the weight is empowering, and she shares how she did it.

The first thing that Kiesha did was to stop eating the foods that were negatively impacting her health.

Next, she added the foods that Dr. Gundry recommended and stayed the course.

Although Kiesha doesn’t mention exercising until she talks about dealing with loose skin, I know she did some exercising.

I see noticeable biceps in the above photo. Kiesha is an avid gardener also, who gets lots of exercise from being in her garden.

Kiesha gives some great tips on how to avoid having loose skin by doing simple exercises to help tone and build muscle.

She also shares recipes that she adapted from the Plant Paradox book, to get you started.

Final Thoughts

Worth the Weight is a book about one woman who got tired of being unhealthy and did something about it.

I appreciate that Kiesha shared the spiritual and mental areas that we sometimes overlook when we are making lifestyle changes.

If you need motivation and inspiration to get started on your journey to becoming a healthier person, then I recommend you check out Worth the Weight.

If Kiesha can do it, so can you!

About Kiesha Easley

Kiesha R. Easley is a High School English Teacher, who got fed up with not having enough energy and mental strength to make it through the day. She knew that something had to give if she was going to continue working in such a fast-paced environment and keep up with her students.

She found a solution that transformed her life. In 2017, she started her journey, and nearly a year later, she is 70 pounds lighter, looks 20 years younger and has more energy than ever before. She has regained her energy and health and wanted to spread the message of healing.

Kiesha is a native of Toledo, Ohio, who now lives in Columbia where she and her husband raise hens, honeybees and a host of fruit trees in their backyard. Every year they plant a garden and grow many healthy leafy greens, herbs, and sweet potatoes. They grow and raise everything using only natural methods – no chemicals, pesticides or herbicides.

Kiesha was inspired to write Worth the Weight in response to all of the questions she received from people who watched her go from a size 20 to a size 10 in about 7 months. If she could lose the weight after years of trial and error, anyone could. The book shares the strategies she applied and offers a step by step approach to improved health, increased energy and sustained weight loss.

Mag O7 Review

A few weeks ago, I went to Vitamin Shoppe to buy a digestive cleanser. I purchased the Mag O7 (Affiliate link) based on what I read on the bottle, “The Ultimate Oxygenating Digestive System Cleanser,” and it does not disappoint.

What is Mag O7?

Mag O7 is elemental Magnesium obtained from a proprietary blend of ozonated Magnesium Oxides, and it also has elemental Potassium.

It is gentle, and fast acting oxygen cleanse that works overnight for most people.

It gently softens unwanted buildup in the digestive tract while providing beneficial oxygen to the digestive system.

Mag O7 is, gluten-free, non-GMO, made in an FDA registered facility, made in the USA, and certified vegan.

Who Does Mag O7 Help?

Mag O7 may help people who are:

  • Experiencing slow and sluggish digestion
  • Struggling with common digestive irregularities
  • Preparing for a lifestyle change or special event.

Note: Mag O7 is not intended to be used as a magnesium supplement.

My Thoughts About Mag O7

I had no prior knowledge of Mag O7  (Affiliate link) and no expectations.

The first night I took three capsules and the next morning, nothing happened.

I decided to take five capsules on the second night, and that did the trick.

Mag O7 is gentle, and I had no stomach cramps like I remember having with herbal teas and laxatives.

Mag O7 Review

I know this is too much information, but if you have to fart/pass gas you might have an accident; it’s that gentle.

Take Mag O7 on a night when you don’t have any early morning appointments or engagements.

I took five capsules on the third night, but I discovered that 2-3 capsules are all I need.

Gurgling, Bloating, and Gas

My digestive area made lots of weird noises, which is not the norm.

The gurgling was so loud, that my husband, asked, “What’s going on with your stomach?”

Decreasing the number of capsules decreased the gurgling, but the bloating and gas went away.

Note: I think the oxygen caused the gurgling, but I could be wrong.

Final Thoughts

I was surprised how gentle Mag O7 is and how well it cleanses.

If you are looking for a digestive cleanser, I recommend you give the Mag O7 (Affiliate link) a try. I don’t think you will be disappointed.
