I joined Nutri-90 in 2012 after seeing a friend shrink before my very eyes. I lost 50 pounds, BUT did not hit goal at that time.
I was not holding myself accountable, I was frustrated, and was mad that I couldn't have all of whatever food I wanted.
I stopped the program and gained almost all of the weight back. I wasn’t understanding that weight loss was not the point of the program. The point was to make the decision that you want to be healthy, that you don't want that food. I just wanted to drop the weight, so I could go back to eating that food! If I had paid attention and learned from Belldon’s teachings I would have understood that once you are making the healthy decisions, the weight is a bonus and comes off quickly.

When I was a kid, my dad used to tell me a story about a leaky bucket.
There is always green grass under the leaky bucket, even in the hottest and driest of seasons, because the leaky bucket is always dripping water there. And so long as the leaky bucket has water to drip, more and more seeds will find their way to the damp earth beneath the bucket, take root, sprout, grow, and flourish.

It isn’t easy for me to talk about myself, so I usually don’t. But I want you to know why I do what I do.
More importantly, I hope my story can help you to avoid the mistakes that nearly cost me my life.
I am going to share this story the way I told it in my book, and in the coming days I will share what happened before
this day. Events that should have caused me to change WAY before it was too late.
I was completely disoriented; I could not understand why I was looking at cabinets from floor level. My thoughts were few yet overwhelming. Gradually, I became aware that I was on the floor and that these were the kitchen cabinets filling my vision. Someone was shouting at me, I sensed, but it was oddly silent, like a loud rock band on TV with the volume turned down. I had only two sensations: abject confusion and a growing realization that my pants were soaking wet.

I have struggled with my weight since my first pregnancy in 1978. I was suffering with Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. I was taking about 20 medications and wearing a size 22. I had been seeing a cardiologist for many years.
On the worst day of my life I weighed 262 pounds. I woke up feeling sick to my stomach and exhausted. My husband was already up, so I mentioned that I was going back to bed. I felt like I had the flu. I mentioned that I felt some pressure, like a newborn baby was sitting on my chest. My husband insisted that we go to the emergency room.

Ubiquitous. Omnipresent. Everywhere. At all times in all places under all conditions. This is how fat-shaming is described by persons who have suffered its debilitating effect. “I was just stunned.” “So horribly embarrassed.” “I tried so hard not to cry that my whole body shook. I was crushed. My spirit hurt.”

Well, the chaotic weekend got me again! Road trip on Saturday, which I prepared for, but then a side trip to IKEA and I ended up being away from home, food, and schedule for way too long. In the grand scheme of things, it’s a small blip but I find it fascinating and wonder how many of us have the same challenges?

I was recently asked if “calories burned” as calculated by gym equipment is accurate. If you know me or are familiar with my Nutri-90 Programs or my book, No One Ever Got Fat from Calories, you know my answer already. But just for a moment let’s put all that aside.
Even those who believe the calories-in-calories-out (CICO) model as dogma readily acknowledge that calculations from gym equipment and mobile apps are inaccurate; anywhere from 22% to 98% inaccurate, depending on who you talk to and the equipment or app in question.

Given the title of my book, No One Ever Got Fat from Calories
, you might imagine that many people challenge me on topics of weight loss and fitness. You would be correct. After all, that title is about the most controversial statement I could make on the topic, right? Today, like most days, came with another challenger. Today I felt inspired, and my answer is maybe the most clearly reasoned and stated I have ever given on the subject, so please let me share it with you.
