Sitting here at the computer and contemplating the last 32 days.  My first thought…it went by so fast.  My second thought…what an incredible feeling to chronical these days and to find that so many of you wanted…maybe needed…to hear what I had to say.  My third thought…I didn’t get...

As I get closer and closer to my 50 lb loss, I can’t help but fantasize about celebrating with a giant bowl of macaroni and cheese.  But, I also know that rewarding myself with food (especially THAT kind of food) will only take away from my victory and not add to the experience.  Plus, I’...

Step 8 in our TAKE ACTION plan is about sharing our successes…and our fails.  Even our epic fails. Some of you might have seen me post on Facebook today that I pulled out a box of clothes from the closet and found that I can now fit into two pairs of jeans and about ten skirts that I haven’t...

Today is Step 4 in our TAKE ACTION plan.  Let’s talk about exercise today and ways to get you motivated to get up and out and moving again. I always thought I hated exercise.  What I’ve learned is that I actually liked exercise, but I didn’t like getting up off the couch.  Or the bed...

I made a new friend today and she is AMAZING!  Like me, she has been on a weight loss journey and has lost 51 lbs.  We actually got together to discuss her company’s special events needs, but we ended up talking about losing weight.  It was wonderful to share our experiences of what...

I was in the grocery store the other day and I saw a very overweight woman and her young daughter (also overweight) in the checkout line.  Their cart was loaded up with Twinkies, chips, ice cream, candy, donuts and all manner of snack foods.  I wanted to cry.  I wanted to tell her...

I bet we all have been there.  Going on a trip or vacation, whether business or pleasure, and finding ourselves either starting out with great resolve to stick to our plans or throwing our hands up in the air and deciding to eat whatever we please, whenever we please and then lounge around in...

  On Day 3 of these 32 days, I had to take my daughters to the airport to fly home after a nice (but short) visit.  Even though I knew I would see them in Burbank two days later, it was still a sad morning for me. We make our situation work, but it’s far from perfect.  Which got me...

  I have received a ton of messages asking me what kind of foods I eat and what kinds of tricks work for me.  I have to tell you, I really don’t believe in “one size fits all” eating or exercise plans, so maybe that’s the best place to start.  I can share MY tips and tricks, but it’s...
