My mission is creating a personal connection with people via social media, communities and meaningful content. I've worked in the health industry for many years, helping create systems to educate people about nutrition and fitness. I have a very personal interest in weight related issues having struggled with my own weight highs and lows over the years. I share the journey for healthier living.
The CalorieKing Blog would like to give a warm welcome to Wendy Post, a CK Staffer who is passionate about healthy living! She's got fitness on the mind this month and would love to tackle it with you!

By now the chocolate Easter Bunnies and Marshmallow Peeps have landed in your grocery stores. There are so many foil wrapped candy treats it’s easy to think there aren’t any other alternatives than putting something sweet in that Easter Basket.

We've seen it all the time on TV – trainers screaming at someone to finish that last minute on the treadmill or in a person’s face picking away at a person’s psychology regarding their fitness level. Because at the end of the show there are radical transformations, we think “Maybe I need that kind of approach to boost my fitness levels.” Have you ever had a drill sergeant style trainer that ended up scaring you out of exercising?
At CalorieKing we are so proud and deeply moved by our members’ successes. We often ask our community to nominate another member whose story has inspired them. This time it is “Deba’s” turn. She had such a profound change in her thinking along with her weight loss journey that she has given speeches on the subject to students. We are delighted she’s shared it with us
