A couple of ladies came to me for personal training sessions together. Each was an opposite personality to the other. One was tall and slender, a bit athletic in her school years.

I have to say that overindulgence is so mainstream. What I mean is so many people in our country think it is normal, and those who eat healthy, low-calorie foods are “unusual.” Our health insurance company requires employees and their families of my husband’s company to talk with a health coach about health goals.
