What makes this book different?
For the 10 years I struggled, I was lost in diet rules, tips and tricks. When I (finally) got frustrated and decided to focus on being healthy instead of being thin, I was shocked that I lost weight.
Now I know that when you build healthy habits you naturally reach and naturally maintain a healthy weight.
The 3 Steps in my book explain what healthy eating and exercise habits look like and how to turn your present choices into healthy habits.
If you think weight loss is about diet pop, rice cakes, low-fat salads, skim milk, sacrifice, willpower and discipline, you’re in for a happy surprise! After 10 years of yo-yo dieting I learned that you don’t have to eat diet food to lose weight. In fact, you can eat dessert.
When you build healthy habits you naturally reach and naturally maintain a healthy weight— Book: It took me 10 years to lose 10 pounds
The beauty of building healthy habits is that healthy choices become your preference. Just like you can get used to eating a donut every morning, you can get used to eating natural food that’s full of nutrients, gives you lots of energy and tastes great.
Healthy habits are just as addictive as unhealthy habits… But healthy habits are far more rewarding!
Building habits makes it easy to reach and maintain a healthy weight.

Who is this book not for?
This book is not for people who are “maybe considering at some point” doing something different about their weight-loss plan.
It took me 10 years to lose 10 pounds is for people who are ready to change their approach to reaching and maintaining a healthy weight NOW. In fact, for many readers, it’s their passion for change that has made them vulnerable to misinformation, getting lost in weight-loss details and ultimately becoming side-tracked from other important areas of their life. This book will equip those who are keen to get started with the information and strategies necessary to reach and maintain a healthy weight.
I’m not a doctor. The information I share in this book is what I’d tell you if we met for a coffee and you asked me how I lost weight. This book won’t be for everyone. I just want to share The 3 Steps that worked for me.
