147 – Half Size Me: Are you letting distractions keep you from making progress in your weight loss journey? (with Half Size Me Community Member Lucy who’s lost 75 pounds!)

147In this episode of Half Size Me, Heather talks to Lucy about

  • why distractions from outside influences can keep you from making progress in your journey.
  • why Lucy joined the Half Size Me community even when she did not want to,
  • how she fought a life-long battle with depression and lost weight,
  • and much more!

About Lucy:Lucy Guillen is a very-happily-married, very-happily-childless, consultant, chef and entrepreneur. She grew up in Europe, was taught to cook by her grandmother (who believed using a recipe was the mark of someone who can’t cook!) and went to a fancy school where she learnt to make French cuisine.

Lucy grew up chubby and spent most of her adult life obese before discovering weight watchers, exercise and losing 75 lbs. She spent ten years as a vegetarian and three years as a vegan, when she discovered that she had a knack for making vegetarian and health-conscious meals that tasted, “just like real food.”

She is a Senior Consultant at a Global Management Consulting firm, and blogs at www.likerealfood.com.”
