It all started when...

I found myself close to 100 pounds overweight, miserable, and eating out-of-control. My self-esteem was in the toilet and I had tried every "DIY" diet, powder, potion, pill, membership, and gadget on the market. I'd lose 3 pounds and gain 7 more. I was a health care professional who took care of others, but I was at a loss as to how to take care of me! 

After years of yo-yo dieting, wasted money and energy, I finally came to the realization that DIETS DO NOT WORK!!! I also knew that; 1) I didn't want to live a lifestyle of restrictions, and 2) I wanted to lose the weight without deprivation and enjoy the foods I loved most. Guess what? I found the simple secret to how to have both! This led me to a lifestyle which allowed me to eat what I wanted to and permanently lose over 91 pounds!
