Wednesday Weigh In - Lose it by Labor Day


Ready or not, swimsuit season is upon us.  I don't know about you, but I am not (yet) in Esther Williams shape.  I selected this image because Esther here is not an anorexic, air-brushed model - but a healthy, vibrant, physically fit athlete - an inspiration then and now.

To spur us on in our weight loss/wellness efforts, the good folks at Forbes.com have provided 12 diet and exercise "tricks" (all of which are safe) with commentary from the American Council on Exercise, University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, and the American Dietetic Association.  So have a healthy helping of sound advice at:

See you at the beach!!
