This Thanksgiving, Don’t be a Turkey!

I fully love the holidays: the decorations, the crisp weather, and spending time with my family and friends. This is a time of celebration, and for giving thanks, and food…lots and lots of food. I love food, but my relationship with it has changed a lot over the years as I lost weight and gained […]
