My brothers are computer geniuses.
I’m quite the opposite
When they talk shop, it’s like hearing another language. I don’t get it but I’m grateful to have them on speed dial (wait, I guess everyone’s on speed dial these days . . .)
Things are shifting.
Can you feel it?
We were told to stay at home.
And it worked.
We flattened the curve and saved many hospitals from having too many critically ill patients at one time.
But as we start our 3rd month, many are asking, “now...
If I somehow unsuspectingly walked into a room and found myself confronted by lights and a camera and a microphone held by the one and only Oprah and she asked me to name the ONE THING that makes the biggest impact on weight management, I know exactly what I’d say.

That’s a recipe for 24/7 anxiety soup.
Stress hormone is not meant to be elevated for long periods of...
March is Maintenance Awareness Month here at Maintenance University and we’re going back to the basics.
Last week we defined Weight Loss Maintenance answering the question, What is Maintenance?
This week we look at a Why . . . why is weight regain so common...
March is Maintenance Awareness Month!
