There are so many apps out that focus on diet and exercise, so are great and some are very lacking.  Here’s my breakdown of the top free apps I’ve used and continue to use to stay on track, keep motivated and lose weight. Note: There are paid versions of most of these apps, but in […]

    Are you trying to get ready for the beach, or maybe just comfortable in shorts?  This is the time of year when most of us regret a few of our late night snacks and make a crazy plan to lose weight before a big trip. Most of you know that over the last year I’ve been […]

        We are almost one week into our November Diet Bet, and I hope it’s helping everyone else with motivation as much as it is me.  I had a great week focusing on getting back into a routine with working out and trying to watch portion sizes. While the scale didn’t move much (half a pound […]
