Butternut Ginger Soup With a Side of Diet Tips

This weekend I made the most amazing, simple soup and it reminded me of all the little things I do day-to-day to help me feel in control of my diet. Before we go any further let me establish I despise the word “diet” when used to represent calorie restriction for a short period of time solely for the purpose of losing weight. Instead I use it to simply mean “what I eat,” which I happen to take fairly seriously. I say fairly because I [...]

Shrimp Tacos With Peanut Sauce

This weekend I got back from our annual week at the shore, itching to cook something in my own kitchen that wasn’t pizza, hamburgers or cheesesteaks — the trifecta of beach food for us. I hit the grocery store after unpacking to restock the fridge and get some fresh food in the house. There happened to be shrimp on sale, which inspired me. Shrimp tacos sounded perfect,  a light, easy meal. To spice up the tacos I made a simple homemade peanut sauce using pantry ingredients I had [...]

Balsamic Beef With Zucchini

I am between summer trips at the moment so my kitchen has seen busier days. Last week I took the boys on our yearly mother-sons adventure (click here for photos and a  recap) and next week we head to the Jersey Shore for our annual week at the beach. I love summer! Right now I’m in my clean-out-the-fridge mode trying to use up perishables before we leave. The boys wanted burgers for dinner but I wasn’t in the mood. So I used [...]

Long Time No Blog (toLose)

Posted on October 6, 2012 at 12:14pm 13 Comments

I need to start this post with an apology. I literally fell off the planet and I'm sorry. I'm not making any excuses for myself, I've simply spread myself too thin. 

Anyway, I'm back and I'm going to continue with some of the plans we made earlier this year to make the community more supportive. So a few things.. 

  1. I'm hearing the spam issue is on the rise again. I'm on and will be banning members left and right. Spam is not tolerated here. This…

Ever Feel Like Your Partner Gets in the Way of Your Weight Loss?

Posted on November 15, 2011 at 9:50pm 3 Comments

Hey Guys! 


First, real fast... I wanted to let you know we will be announcing new forums and forum moderators shortly. If you have any suggestion please share! 


Second, I was contacted by Amanda G. Harp, M.A. a Doctoral Student at Clark University. She's doing a study about partners sabotaging weight loss efforts and I thought some of you may be interested in participating.


In Amanda's words, 

I'm a trained couples therapist…

Love the new site Roni. Thanks for the comment too. It's good to be back and something I should have done long ago. Looking forward to getting back on track.

Hi Roni.

Once again, amaze me. The site is awesome. I wish I had a 1/4 of your energy!!!! I'm kinda at a standstill with my weight loss. I have only 2 lbs to go to reach my overall goal but I'm struggling. I'm finding my old habbits resurfacing especially since I'm so stressed and crazed. However, I have four more days of my internship and my life will resume as always. Hopefully once the stress is gone I can concentrate on my weight loss, food plan and exercise. Your sites have been a great support to me espcially when I can't get to a meeting. Thanks for all your support, recipes and wisdom. Funny, I only know you here but I consider you a good friend. :~)
