Still, the other was short and stout without any athletic inclination whatsoever. This pairing was an interesting mix because the short one believed that whatever her tall fri...

She didn’t want to be “fat” when her friends from high school saw her after 20 years. We set to work, and sh...

During Stay-at-Home orders, I’ve worked hard to not over-- or comfort-- eat. Unfortunately, I was craving dark chocolate really bad yesterday. Ugh! I tried eating a banana. Nope. Nuts. Nope. I even added collagen protein powder to fruit juice. Nope. Not only t...
