To DEXA or not? Brace yourself for truth.

The first time I got a DEXA scan was in 2012 when I was 51 years old. I was the leanest and most fit I’d ever been in my entire life. My total body weight was 124.2 pounds. My LBM (Lean Body Mass) was 104.5 pounds. My total body fat was 14.2 pounds.

I get this question a lot! First, I've learned not to necessarily binge on those stressful days. I allow myself to eat more, but by saying it's okay I stop when I'm full and I get back to work. After all, the reason you are stressed is often because of the pressure of too much to do, so go do it!

Yes you! Why not you?

I was talking to one of you on the phone this week about Easter. Yes, you my friend, I believe in you!

My friend wanted to know if she should skip Easter with her family? She wants very hard to lose the body fat she has gained back.

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the gym

Yesterday I finally said goodbye to my mother in law, Sue Winter Saum. I had put it off, not dealt with it, you know, compartmentalized the situation.
