My Story

Hi, I’m Cindy, and welcome to my weight loss site. If someone had told me ten years ago that I would never eat another cookie again, I wouldn’t have believed them. I loved sweets and ate cookies, brownies, ice-cream and the like every day. In fact, the day wasn’t complete without goodie treats to snack on! But it was perfectly okay, because for many years I was thin—in fact, too thin. Up until my early 20’s, I wanted to gain weight! Even after two kids in my mid-20’s I was still slender and eating anything I wanted.

But then in my early 30’s my metabolism changed, and the more I tried to lose weight the more I gained, despite intense exercise. I yo-yo dieted myself to almost obesity for my height. In 2001 at age 44 I discovered Somersize, a controlled-carb program explained by Suzanne Somers, who wrote several books on this way of eating. Within six months I lost almost all I wanted, and I didn’t do it by eating low-fat foods or depriving myself. I ate like a queen! I learned a whole new way of cooking and eating, which kept my cravings under control and reprogrammed my metabolism. I still exercised, by everything I lost was due to what I ate, not how much I moved.

As a grandmother in my early 50’s now, I still Somersize. Middle-age has caught up with me somewhat and I’m not as svelte as I was in my mid 40’s, but I would hate to see what I’d look like without it! I can’t imagine eating any other way. Somersize is something one can stay on for life.   

I do not know Suzanne Somers and I certainly am not compensated in any way by recommending her program. My site just tells the story of what Somersize has done for me. If you would like more information about this way of eating, please visit Suzanne’s site ( or read her many books on the subject.

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you enjoy my story and recipes!
