ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
My favorite color is pink...I love bunnies.....I went back to school a few years ago, and graduated with an MBA last June (went part time while working full time and juggling family - I don't recommend it!!!!!)
WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: I have of course lost weight before only to gain it back. I believe that while physically losing weight is important, it is also necessary to address the reasons why we overeat and conquer this or the weight will never stay off!
