• Working Lunch

    One day I walked outside for lunch and I noticed it. There was a complete freedom of movement in my body and absence of pain. I looked around and the sky was blue, the air smelled clean, the breeze was soft on my skin. In that moment, I had no unmet needs and no unfulfilled desires. The absences were so satisfying. I could have turned right around, walked back inside the building and continued on with my day, without missing a beat, even though I would have missed a meal.

    Yesterday I made a silly comment on Facebook about my morning. It was not accompanied by a picture, or a famous quote, or anything to make it stand out. Almost immediately, there were 'likes' and comments from friends. And throughout the day, the number of friends who noticed the comment kept growing.

    It's another one of those mornings when I know I want to write, but nothing comes to mind. I have no personal agenda for the day. There is no problem that needs a solution. There is no project that needs planning. The work day is ahead of me, but there's nothing unusual or pressing there either. This day is a blank slate.

  • What you will read on the blog pages will give you some insight into the motivation that drove me to write a book, "The Main Meal: The New Perspective on Weight Loss."  Writing the book inspired me to write more, and so I started blogging in June of 2013.  Looking back I found that most of my blogs fall into three main topics: Being Present, Loving Yourself, and Renewal, and that's what the Main Meal is all about.  It's about being present to what is most important in my life, renewing my sense of self-worth and confidence in every moment, and loving myself just as I am.

    PLease join me at the table as I find new and delicious items on the menu of living in joy and self-confidence.  I invite you to explore this website, sign up for the newsletter, read the blogs, buy the book, and contact me with your stories and feedback.  Together we make progress and together we find our way to joy.

    An Excerpt from "The Main Meal: The New Perspective on Weight Loss"

  • Mental Gymnastics“Another mental exercise is the counting game. How much have I had today? How much can I still have? Which foods on the list are still available to me? I didn't eat that item yesterday, so maybe I can have two of them today. If I save up enough points all week, I can have two-thirds of an ounce of birthday cake at the party tomorrow. All the while, the focus of attention is on food.”
