About the Blog and Me

Research shows that we make over 200 decisions about food and eating every single day. Imagine! What we eat is only the beginning — we also make snap decisions about where to eat, how much to have, who to eat with and more. Paying closer attention to these details can help your weight and control your appetite.

This blog provides practical tips, tricks and advice to help you make better food decisions for successful weight management. It also highlights relatable lifestyle issues and trends to broaden your perspective and help keep you informed, empowered and at times entertained.

We’re all in this together Through Thick & Thin!
