What Should We Say To Our Partner About Losing Weight?

partner

There was an article that recently ran on Health.com (and reposted on HuffPo) that has stuck with me for a few weeks now.  Cynthia Sass, who is a knowledgeable and well-educated dietician and TV personality with the full complement of alphabet soup behind her name, shared her take on the things we should not be …

Finding Your Legs

Bambi

The clock on the top right corner of the screen read 5:45 A.M.  The same as it had each of the last five mornings. I stood in my basement office half awake. My eyes half-open and trying desperately to stay that way. My brain only half engaged and burning what little fuel it had on …

How To Lose Weight

How To Lose Weight

I noticed it wedged in innocently among the group of daily stories on CNN.com. It was there again, front and center, when I was visiting the online edition of my local paper. It was big and bold and hard to miss on HuffPo later that week. Facebook?  They litter the screen like confetti in Time …

5 Ways The Polar Vortex Is Like Weight Loss

Polar Vortex

The sound that came out of my mouth was something that I’d only heard in movies.  That loud over-dramatic gasp that is usually reserved for Mothers being shown their long-suffering daughter’s engagement ring that she was sure was never coming or the prim and proper woman offended by a “beast of a man” usually followed …

Like a Movie: Being Intentional with Food

Be Intentional

Getting back into a more deliberate and intentional pattern with my eating is a lot like going to the movies. In today’s world of convenience and instant access at your fingertips, I can watch a movie on one of multiple TV’s in my home, my computer, my tablet or even my phone.  I can watch …

Training Days: An Important Exercise

training

I ran into my old trainer at the local holiday parade last weekend. It’s been over a year since we last trained together and, despite living in a small village laden with busy-bodied barbershop banter, our paths hadn’t crossed, nor had either us really kept up-to-date on the other’s life (read: “we’re not Facebook friends”). …

AFTER: The Quiet Killer In The Three Phases of Weight Loss

weight loss maintenance

When we make the commitment to start a weight loss journey, even the most realistic lot amongst us have a very unrealistic picture of what it’s going to look like.  Most have at least the basic idea of what a healthy diet and exercise lifestyle contain, but few correctly visualize all three phases. We all …

Off The Scale: Letting Go Of Weight Loss Numbers

Off the scale - weight loss numbers

The questions were the same as they are each time I find myself in this position… it was the answers that had changed drastically. How much do you need to lose? Don’t know. Well, what do you weigh now? Don’t know. How will you know when you’re there? I’ll know. I’m putting the scale away …

Back On Track: Admitting You Have A Problem Isn’t Enough

Back On Track Weight Loss

Confession. In the last five weeks, I’ve gained quite a bit of weight. Not sure exactly how much (more on that tomorrow), but the extra “oomph” it takes to button my jeans and the slightly larger surface area when I shave my face tells me all I need to know. I know how it happened, …
