Interesting week with a few surprises that got me off my routine. Thus, this Tip is late.
(How nice when my regulars ask if everything is OK. Thanks.)
Last August I was introduced to a nutritionist who set me on a path to lose 30 pounds. The road map was simple; limit myself to 1600 calories a day, consisting of more protein and far less sugar. Simple as it sounds; the formula won’t work for everyone.

I ask myself, what’s to be gained by challenging those who have tried unsuccessfully before to lose weight? Or, someone with a chronic condition?
Then I ask, what’s to be gained by not challenging you?
