Holy moly! I thought I was busy before I had a kid! How do you even survive with more than one little mini-me running around?

Piper turned one and life got busy. Oh, and I started my own business too, so life got more busy. And on top of that, it's September. Life jus...

Sometimes I trick myself into believing that I'm happy with my progress and I don't want to lose any more weight. Then I tell Lucinda that I want to quit. Luckily, she's so good at reading me that she sees through my B.S. and reminds me that I don't really want to quit...

I've gotten really good at speaking gently and kindly to myself. I no longer think things like "these pants make me look fat" or "man, my butt is big". This is HUGE for me!

But... (and this is a BIG BUTT, ha ha)... I have to be careful that the pendulum doesn't swing...

"Mouthful after mouthful. No stopping, not even to sit down. Marge stands at the kitchen counter tasting the cold, rich chocolate, the sweet whipping cream melting into it. Just this once, she tells herself. Something to make her feel better. The hungry emptiness in he...

I lied to Lucinda. Being "in it" for the long haul is hard. Nobody told me that converting to a healthy lifestyle was going to be easy. And certainly, losing weight is not easy.

 When you think of eating healthy, do you think of a fridge filled with celery, kale, salads without flavour and plain, unseasoned chicken breast? Before I started this journey, that was certainly what I envisioned!

But lately, I've rediscovered healthy food! My taste...

I enjoyed my Christmas break. Lucinda had the foresight to give her clients a "time out" over the holidays if they wanted one and I took it. I ate good food (including chocolate), drank beer and wine (sometimes in excess), and spent time with friends and family. I am p...

I recently borrowed the book, "Breaking Free from Emotional Eating" by Geneen Roth from Lucinda's book lending shelf. (side note: Lucinda has an excellent book collection that her clients are welcome to borrow from) Anyways, I'm about halfway through the book and holy...

I don't know about you, but I love eating to celebrate!...

"It's Friday, let's celebrate getting through the week by going out for supper and drinking beer at the pub!"
"It's Valentine's! Let's celebrate our love by over-indulging in crappy and cheap milk chocolate!"
