Achieving Healthy Weight Loss
What are some tips for healthy weight loss?
Begin your healthy weight loss by assessing your own personal needs. No one diet program will work for everyone.
Begin by assessing any physical and/or emotional conditions that may have an impact on your weight loss. Seeing your physician is recommended.

Keeping Tabs On Your Health In Texas
Your personal health information – do you know who has it or where to find it in Dallas, Houston or in the other Texas cities where you have lived? Do you have it?
