More Birkin Bag Than Birkenstock

by shawne 6 December 2013

What’s My Deal? Why the heck am I a health coach if I was NEVER passionate about nutrition or exercise? I have always had a tumultuous relationship with food. I grew up in the 70’s and 80’s as a latch-key kid raised on TV dinners and take-out. I loved my fake food! As an only […]

Black Friday Bloat

by shawne 29 November 2013

The turkey was delish and now you’re sufficiently stuffed!  You want to take advantage of Black Friday deals but you can’t fathom the thought of shoving yourself into the smallish looking clothing you dragged into the dressing room.   Sigh.  The thought of it is making you feel blue- but really you’re not blue- you’re just […]

Why I 86’d My Scale…

by shawne 24 September 2013

As a lifelong dieter, I had grown dependent on seeing those digitized numerals that appeared between my big toes. Same routine each time: first thing in the morning, upon rising, but only after eliminating. Always prior to eating breakfast and consistently wearing the lightest pair of underwear I had. The numbers on that scale could […]

Remembering Molly

by shawne 31 August 2013

This piece captures my sentiments on women and the weight loss roller coaster.  As a “professional” dieter for most of my life, I can now safely tell you that I was brain washed.  Stay tuned for a future post on why I ditched my scale.  In the meantime, please take a look at this essay […]

My Unexpected Vacation Diet

by shawne 13 August 2013

Ahh, summer vacation!  We just returned from a family get away to sunny San Diego.  I have visited California many times before but this was the first time I have spent more than a day or two in lovely San Diego.  I can attest that it really is deserving of the title of “perfect weather”.  […]
