Meet Brandee – Weight Loss Superstar!!!

I “met” Brandee on a weight loss page on Facebook and I loved looking at pictures of her journey. She and her husband are in this together and they look A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. So – I asked her if I could do a success story on her and she graciously took time out of her busy life…

Sweet Pickled Jalapenos + Sunshine

I was excited to make this version of pickled jalapenos. I am probably one of the few people who hates dill pickles, dill pickled jalapenos, dill potato chips, etc…. No dill for me! But sweet and spicy pickles/jalapenos – I LOVE those! This is super easy to put together – less than 10 minutes from…

Meet Jennifer – weight loss superstar! 100 pounds gone!

1). What was your “Aha” moment when you decided you needed to do something about your weight? It wasn’t when I was teased mercilessly by my classmates. It wasn’t when I couldn’t fit my behind into the most popular rollercoaster of the season. It wasn’t when I needed emergency surgery due to complications from poor…

I found Janette on Facebook a few weeks ago. I’m always looking for people who are an inspiration to me and others. I especially like people who are able to change their lives and lose weight by working hard and eating better without having to resort to surgery. Since I liked her page, I’ve found…

Great Biggest Loser Finale!

So the season finale was last night and it’s by far my favorite episode of the season. I not only like to see who will win – BUT – how did the people do at home on their own. Everyone who weighed in looked amazing. Such big changes in not that long a time. Dani…

No chips for you!

One thing I’ve read over and over about making lifestyle changes stick, is you can’t change everything all at once. If you make gradual changes – it won’t seem so hard. My weigh in was Monday – I was down only .4 – BUT, it isn’t a gain either, so I’ve got that goin’ for…
