This One Skill is Mandatory for Permanent Weight Loss

Nov 01, 2018

 


 

There was an academic clinical psychologist who became president of his professional association. This was awesome except for one thing . . . he had a crippling fear of public speaking.

 

Sweating, nausea, dry mouth, light headedness, even losing his voice. He felt it all. To his credit, he did it anyway, but it was not fun.

 

He tried everything to get rid of the anxiety. After all, he was a psychologist who dealt with people’s anxiety everyday.

Halloween is just around the corner.

 

One of last year’s Halloween blogs was about the best day to buy Halloween candy.  Find out here.

 

This year let’s talk about conscious candy choices.

 

As long as we’re aware of what we’re doing and why, we can have a happy, guilt-free experience with candy (or anything else, for that matter).

 

In order to be conscious about your candy consumption, ask yourself a couple of questions:

A Peak Behind the Scenes of The PLAN Plan

Oct 18, 2018

 


 

Creating a proven weight loss program that delivers results for life is easy for someone who’s helped people get healthy for almost 2 decades.

 

But, it’s naming that program that’s hard.

 

My program is called, The PLAN Plan.

 

I love the name, but I’ve had marketing experts tell me to find a different one.

 

I’m willing to consider it, but I haven’t landed on one that fits yet. It has to be catchy and not too cutesy.

6 year-old me: “But, why?”

 

My mom: “Because I said so!”

 

I was never satisfied with that answer.

 

Neither were my kids, for that matter. (sigh)

Get Ready to Start Feeling Great!

Oct 04, 2018

 


 

One of my dreams came true.

 

I moved to Italy.

 

What’s not to love about Italy? The expressive people, the beautiful language, the unbelievable food, the tangible history, the unmatched natural beauty. Oh and the Art!

 

I was an Art History major in college (at least in the beginning) and it was a no-brainer where to spend a semester abroad. I wanted an immersive experience and knew I had to prepare: goal number one—learn Italian.

 

I took...

The Superhero of Weight Loss

Sep 20, 2018

 


 

Every year my family and I go to a community gathering. There’s singing and acts of service. It’s a nice touchstone.

 

Well, this year I noticed something very disturbing.

 

We’re outgrowing the event.

 

It’s for young families and that’s how I identify myself and my family—my kids are young. Except . . . they’re not so young anymore.

 

I watched the other families with their young children. I saw how hard the moms...
