Healthy Merry Christmas, Sherry Johnston, NBC The Biggest Loser

Christmas holidays are here!  I have always loved them - the tree, mantel, the cards, the stockings and lights inside and out along with all the goodies, parties, special time with family and friends… Every Christmas, I watch It’s A Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, and White Christmas.  I remember as a little girl every […]

INSPIRATION IS CONTAGIOUS! Sherry Johnston, Biggest Loser

I’ve been many places in the last couple of years and have had the opportunity to share my Biggest Loser experience and challenge so many to also make whatever changes they need in their lives to become healthier.

LIVING INTENTIONAL

I took a few days for a mini vacation a couple weeks ago, hit the beach and visited Charleston, SC.  When I see the ocean, suddenly stress just melts away….  Actually that is true of most bodies of water for me.

CHEAP RIDE AT A BAD CARNIVAL

I have the wonderful opportunity to speak to so many people about their overall health and one area I always talk about is sleep because I didn’t realize the importance of good sleep.  I don’t think most of us do.  With Dr. Huizenga’s help along with one of The Biggest Loser’s sponsors, Philips Respironics, I began […]

WRITING IT DOWN – JOURNALING YOUR FOOD

One VITAL tool I learned on The Biggest Loser Ranch is to journal my food.  I mean every bite!  I did it when I came home as well.  It is so important!  Actually, from the time I knew I was chosen for the show and I actually left home, I had to journal everything I […]
