When you are trying to shed extra pounds I do not recommend you rely on willpower alone. Clear out the unhealthy foods that weaken your resolve to be heart healthy and lose weight out of your cupboards. Once you have established good habits and can “trust yourself” to enjoy the occasional goodie in moderation, bring a few treats back into your home. Until then, removing temptation is the better route to success!

Growing up, I was taught not to litter, and that was a little while ago.
When my children were growing up, I also taught them not to litter.
However on my walk yesterday, I was appalled at the amount of litter here in Los Angeles and on our streets. Of course, I’ve always known that there was litter, but during yesterday’s walk, it just hit me harder than normal.…Continue

“15lbs that’s all? That’s nothing. I need to lose 50lbs.”
Maybe it’s 75lbs or a 100lbs
In principle, it’s all the same.
Fewer calories in, and…Continue

The nurse was running around the office, 'We need the bigger cuff. She can’t fit the other,' and I was just like, 'Oh, my gosh!' " said one of…Continue

Do you take the time to listen?
