My Special Personal Mission

Jackie Louvre Museum Paris

I am officially in my “Golden Years” but in my heart I feel like a kid! In fact, my mom still tells me that I haven’t grown up yet. In the past, that used to irritate me, but now, it doesn’t phase me…because I’m happy! In my opinion, there’s always more room for joy and self-improvement and I happen to be doing just that, improving my health through the guidance and assistance of Dr. Joey Shulman from the Shulman Weightloss Center as a winner of the Cityline Weightloss Challenge of Toronto’s popular morning show Cityline.

It’s a meal plan that teaches me permanent life-style eating strategies, not quick, drastic starvation techniques, but with real food, no medications, no injections, no artificial foods…just real food. I’m learning to make wise choices for what to eat and more importantly when to eat. Being in full menopause puts me in a different metabolic situation and Dr. Joey Shulman has incorporated a plan that will help me…and it works.

The food plan and mindful eating technique I follow is quite simple with all the fresh food I already have at home. Unlimited vegetables, lean protein 3x a day, 2 servings of fruit a day, 1 complex carbohydrate, 4 servings of good fats, 1 dairy, and 2 litres of water a day. I have been following that plan practically all my life, but I had mixed in some other detrimental food and eating time choices that contributed to my weight gain. Dr. Joey taught me to skim back on the excess and re-train my body. It’s working. I’m not starving. I don’t have headaches and my cravings are under full control. I am sleeping better, exercising more and I feel great! I even lost 2lbs. right after a Disney Fantasy, Star Wars Day at Sea cruise, imagine that…losing weight on a cruise!

If you want to take a closer look at the Shulman Weightloss Plan and follow it on Cityline Weightloss Challenge Facebook Group, you’ll find an abundance of support, as there are over 1,000 members on the challenge.

Thank you and all the best to you!


Greetings! My past contributions to the Disney Parks Moms Panel (2016/17) gave me great joy by having assisted exactly 1,700 future and return Guests in planning their magical vacations. I am a former instrumental music teacher, full-time mom of two older children- a daughter studying medicine, and an autistic son in the phases of adult transitions. Art history, reading, and enjoying travel are all hobbies that keep me happy and distract me a little from the daily challenges of being a full-time caregiver. Thank you for checking in, and for taking the time to read my posts.
