Where'd You Go, Wendy?
The last time you heard from me, it was on a ski trip in the Alps.....then nothing for six months. Curious about where I've been? I've done what I set out to do - stop overeating - and lost 60 pounds. I always thought losing weight would be THE happy ending. Turns out, it's just the beginning.

January is over, but the work never stops. Today, we're talking about food indulgences at the cinema.

Being curious about the food we eat, and the impact it has on our bodies is my passion - weight loss is sometimes a byproduct of that curiosity.

I am fascinated by hormones. They are sophisticated messengers in our amazing human body. Many of us are familiar with hormones - thyroid, estrogen, testosterone, cortisol, adrenaline.

There is much joy this year end reflecting on what I've accomplished - I've lost 50 pounds and I've recorded a year's worth of podcasts.

Episode 46: Dogs & People
Some days, I flirt with 145 on the scale, and I can say I've lost 50 pounds. In this last phase of active weight loss, I rigorously examine the causes of my overeating.
