There are many reasons why I want to start writing books, but the biggest reason is that I want all of you to know that no matter what challenge you are facing and no matter who or where you are, you have the ability to change anything you want! I hear so many different things from so many of you; you ask me all kinds of questions. So I’m writing my first book to help inspire you to be the best you can be and to have whatever it is you desire.


As I’ve said in many of my other blogs, I’m not perfect, and I don’t believe anyone is. I struggle with all kinds of issues in my life; my family, including my mother, one of my teenage daughters and old relationships. The difference between my past and now is the way I react to these issues. Of course, I make the constant choice to be happy, because happiness is a choice.

When I was on The Dr. Oz Show, I thanked Dr. Oz for giving me back my life. What I didn’t realize was that what he gave me was a whole new beginning to my life. I have changed so much. When some of my family members and old friends still talk to me like I’m the old me, it’s hard for me because they have no idea who I am anymore, and how awesome I feel on the outside, and on the inside as well.

Every day I continue to understand and grow with my life. I’m always moving forward and it feels so good! Dr. Oz has completely changed my life! Just last week some harsh criticism came my way after some issues I had with one of my teenage daughters. What you need to remember is not to let people judge you or make you the victim. If you are taking action and giving your all, that’s what counts. Some will agree, some won’t, some will give harsh criticism, some won’t – but so what?

Change is constant, you must forever go with the flow, treat people the way you want to be treated and when someone isn’t treating you that way, as it just recently happened to me, all you can do is wish them well and move on. Sadly enough, the people judging you should really be the ones looking inside and working to make their own lives better.

My books will be all about making your lives better! Remember I want to hear from YOU! Where I am right now in my life is such a beautiful place to be and I want you all to feel exactly what I feel inside and out!

4 Steps to Shedding Your Pandemic Pounds

Forgive yourself, and start walking toward a healthier you.

For those of you who have put on the Pandemic Pounds or added several new COVID Curves, you are not alone. Alarmingly, the American Psychological Association has recently published that almost half of all adults in their survey now have a larger physique. In fact, 42% of people reported gaining roughly 15 pounds (the average published was surprisingly 29 pounds but that included outliers) over the past year. Interestingly, 20% of adults in this survey lost about 12 pounds (I am surely not in this group). Clearly, there is a relationship between stress and weight change. In addition, one in four adults disclosed an increase in alcohol consumption, and 67% of participants distressingly revealed that they have new sleeping patterns.

This past year has brought about what has been called the 'new normal.' Social isolation and inactivity due to quarantining and remote working have sadly contributed to the decline in many people's mental and physical health, as demonstrated by the widespread changes in people's weight, alcohol consumption, and sleeping patterns. Gym closures, frequent ordering of unhealthy takeout, and increased time at home cooking and devouring comfort foods have had a perceptible impact. In addition, many people have delayed routine medical care and screening tests over fear of contracting Covid-19 during these visits. Unfortunately, the 'new normal' has now placed too many people at risk for serious health consequences, including heart attacks and strokes.
