Here are some facts that were in the last Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) email newsletter. Fast Facts: As of 2008, the prevalence of obesity among children (6-11 years) was 19.6 percent and adolescents (12-19 years) was 18.1 percent. A person with obesity is around 60 percent more likely to develop arthritis than someone of normal body weight. Technically speaking, there are only two essential fatty acids, or EFAs: the Omega-6 fatty acid Linoleic Acid (LA) and the Omega-3 fatty acid Alpha Linolenic…

I have the best conversations with my weight loss patients, and there is something so wonderful about those moments where we both go “Ah ha!” and discover a tiny block between the present moment and the dreams and desires that they are reaching for. I wanted to share a significant story with you about someone struggling to gain the passion for exercise. When I met this patient he was recently post-weight loss surgery and I could sense that he had a strong desire to begin exercising. The…
With all the fitness gadgets out on the market, it is sometimes hard to find ones that are truly going to help us (rather than just rob us of money!). I’m not a big gadget-girl, but I have found a gadget or two that have helped me on my fitness journey.

It is a little interval timer system that you wear like an old-fashioned pager (or a new-age pedometer I guess!) and is called Gymboss.…
Here’s what you missed from support group on Tuesday, Sept 21, 2010. The topic for the pre-weight loss surgery and less than one year post-weight loss surgery group was change.

And yet, we ask all of…
