There are so many NutriSystem dinner entrees that I love. It was insanely difficult to whittle the list to a top 12, and even some of the Top 12 are grouped, making this in reality a "Top 24 List." With 24 entrees to love each month, there's no wonder why... Continue reading

"I'm just one stomach flu away from my goal weight." A stylish truth about weight-loss obsession from The Devil Wears Prada. That's exactly how I handled my now-eight-day sojourn into a cold and fever illness: "Eh, could be good for the scale." And it was. The scale ceded a whole... Continue reading

What a difference a table makes. Call this my koan, my zen anecdote. I was tired of not having a nightstand. For some time, I'd actually had a cardboard box next to my bed. Even propped my alarm clock on... Continue reading

Finally, Florida's autumnal 85-degree days are here. Now that there's a sorta kinda chill in the air (well, we can pretend), I gaze at my calendar to look over the impending holidays. And I discover ... a holiday horror. NINE... Continue reading

Gail's been sharing my address with strangers again. Came home to a giant box on my carport with the name Chobani on it. Way too big to be my daughter's Halloween costume. Hmmmm ... Turns out it was full of... Continue reading

Here's exactly how these diet fads start. Complimenting an acquaintance on her slimmer, trimmer figure, she says: "I've been on this hCG diet.". Ooh, I think, it must work since she looks great. "All the girls at work were losing... Continue reading

I've never been so happy to get to the bottom of an ice cream container. Even as I embarked on testing out a diet book, I knew it was there. In the fridge. A cool, luscious whisper calling my name... Continue reading

For real, my dieting experience is extremely limited. Sounds like a joke, when every woman out there has at least tried their hand at diets touting MUFAs or grapefruit or protein shakes. Nope to all the above. I did a... Continue reading
