Before and After? How about Here and Now.

My friend Tina recently shared an article on Facebook. Found on MindBodyGreen and written by a woman who has lost and maintained a healthy weight, Brynn Andre describes the downside of posting before and after images of oneself for all to see.  I found it so spot-on, so perfectly written that I had to share […]

Article regarding mental and physical aspects of losing weight

I just ran across an article written by Jen Larson who lost 180 pounds via weight loss surgery.  I am linking to this well-written and totally spot-on story because it is a reminder from yet another maintainer that losing weight isn’t the cure-all, fix-all solution that many people believe it is.    I remain firm and […]

Mail Call: Answering a question about weight loss

Recently, I’ve been fortunate enough to have many people from all over the US contact me because of the article in Woman’s Day Magazine.  Most inquiries are from women who share their own struggles with weight loss; others offer encouraging words or have questions about how I’ve been able to maintain for so long.  This […]

Once, Twice, Three times upside the head

I know you’ve done it before, too.  You’re reading blogs and you come across one that seems as though it was written specifically for you.  That happened to me when I sat down to read my friend Kyra’s blog last night over at The Never ending Adventures.  This was a milestone post because she unveiled […]

Filling In The Blanks

I received two copies of Woman’s Day Magazine in the mail on Tuesday.  Initially, my idea was to have my husband read the article first.  By reading his face I would know what to expect and be somewhat prepared.  Did that happen?  Nah.  I tore that envelope open before my foot crossed the threshold!   There […]

Mind Adjustment Needed

If you’re reading this blog then chances are you’re a health conscious person.  Maybe you’re in maintenance; maybe you’re just beginning a plan of cleaner eating. I’ve written about many health-related issues in the last couple of years but lately I’ve been experiencing something that is entirely new to me.  As in, never in my […]

Are Fat People Destined to be Fat?

On Tuesday I had the opportunity to watch a most interesting segment on 60 Minutes Australia.  If you happen to live in the US, chances are you might have missed it.  I’m sure that I would have, if not for visiting one of my favorite blogs, Lynn’s Weigh.  The title of the story was called […]

What do Maintainers have in Common?

I came across a very interesting article the other day in the health and fitness section of the Herald Tribune.  The article was written by Barbara Peters Smith and was about maintainers who are taking part in a study, specifically how they have been able to keep a considerable amount of weight off for more […]

Sugar and Sugar Substitutes

When I develop the urge to locate a suitable alternative to a trigger food, I generally don’t stop until I find it.  Remember my three month quest to find the perfect substitute to peanut butter?  That lesson just goes to show that sometimes you can find satisfying surprises in the unlikeliest of foods.  Who would […]

Your Diet, Your Way

When asked about my weight loss, most people ask the same question.  ‘How have you managed to keep it off?’  It sure seems a lot easier for some than for others.  I know of people who were able to let go of most every bad habit they had when they were heavy and never look […]
