Tomorrow, tomorrow is the day for me, Just have to decide, which diet it will be.
If French Women Don't Get Fat , should I move to France? Maybe then I'll fit into my size 8 pants.
Should I fast? Visit Jenny ? Or, what should I do? What's in? What's out? What's Oprah up to?
Arleen Mavorah has battled with the ten, fifteen or twenty-five pounds she’s taken off at times in her life, only to put back on. It made her good at her job in the weight loss industry because she easily related to her many clients. She has counseled thousands of people and has heard every excuse known to mankind, many of which she’s used herself.
Arleen owned and operated her own weight loss centers (Weight ‘n See in New York and New Jersey) and worked for Jenny Craig Diet Centers. She has a Masters degree in Early Childhood Education and has taught pre-school.
