Join me along the way . . .

Fat Shaming Yourself (“Here come da judge”)

When I was out in California at The Life Coach School, one of our practical assignments was to buy a treat – something we really love and rarely allow – to bring back to class after lunch.   For me, I decided this had to be pizza.  Not normally something I would buy...

Chasing the Dragon

Chasing the Dragon is a reference to what heroin addicts go through.   The first time they use heroin, the high is utter euphoria – unlike anything ever experienced before.   The second time they use it, not so much.   Then the entire time the addict keeps on using...

Compelling “Why”

We all need a compelling "why" before we can move forward.  Why are you here reading this? Why do you want to stop the overeating for good? Why do you want to lose ___ pounds? These are the most important questions you can ask yourself! Without a good strong “why,”...
