Looking good and feeling great are two things that don’t come easy. Before I went into business for myself, I struggled with food, family, health issues, and my own self-esteem.

But somehow for me, the lessons I learned early in life sparked a fire in my belly and a passion in my heart. In turn, these led me to a career path that I was destined to pave.

For over 30 years, I’ve been fortunate to have made a difference in the lives of thousands of people with regard to weight loss, self-respect, and learning to live happier and healthier lives. It is my hope to make a difference in yours too.

It’s your life – come on, let’s make it the very best it can be!

Love, love, love,

We all want to do our best, no matter what the circumstances are, but do you know what? Sometimes we fall short of our expectations. We sometimes overeat, miss a day of exercise, bypass a day of tracking. The list could go on and on. Guess what? That’s okay! What’s not alright is to throw in the towel. A gaffe is temporary and surmountable, and we have to look at each in that way. The perfection monster is elusive, so don’t spend your life chasing it.
