Rick has lived in Florida for the last 33 years. He’s originally from the Boston area (Revere Beach), and now married to the delightful author Cindy. She has just got him involved with co-authoring the Rick and Cindy series of non-fiction books. Rick has a passion for the beach, reading, and traveling. A connoisseur of coffee. We were just recently married at Dow Gardens in Michigan. When not traveling, you can find us most days at the beach. Or in the evening listening to a local band while the sun goes down.
Cindy is the author of 22 mysteries and romantic suspense novels, and several non-fiction books. She’s a 20-year veteran free-lance editor, and a recent transplant to the land of sunshine where she can be outdoors twelve months of the year rather than the four or five in New England. Cindy and her new husband Rick do a lot of hiking and swimming. They like to travel—next on the bucket list is Italy. The last trip to Rome produced a novel Lethal Dose of Revenge (being marketed now) which made it TAX DEDUCTIBLE!
Personally, she’s addicted to coffee—particularly chocolate raspberry flavor. And don’t anyone dare get between her and her life-loves: Ben & Jerry. Other than that, she’s pretty laid back.
WHY IS LOSING WEIGHT SO HARD?:
Genre: Motivational Self-Help
This book is not a diet book; it is a way to change your relationship with food.
You’ve been there before, maybe many times. And you’re tired of failing. Let failure be a word you eliminate from your vocabulary. It’s time to SUCCEED. Learn how to make food work for you. “Your diet is a bank account.
Good food choices are good investments.”
~ Bethenny Frankel
Like many of you I have struggled with weight my entire life. I have been a perpetual dieter…forever. In that time I have lost hundreds of pounds. Most of you understand what I am talking about. Gain a few lose a few on and off the never ending roller coaster of weight loss. In short, I was a professional dieter.
It took me many tears of frustration and disappointment to learn that losing weight IS NOT HARD.
Yes you just read that right, I said WEIGHT LOSS IS NOT HARD.
The biggest problem we perpetual dieters have is that we get discouraged and give up. Usually after anywhere from two weeks to two months. The world is in a perpetual search for quick weight loss programs. But, be realistic. How can there be any such thing—outside of chopping the fat from your body? How could you expect the weight to come off overnight? Was it gained with a snap of the fingers? Or the twitch of a nose? The goal should be consistent weight reduction over a period of time. You must be prepared to develop a whole new outlook on food and what it does to your body. But it can be done, and it can be done in an enjoyable way that makes the journey easier.

Whether married and divorced, whether widowed or ending a long-term relationship—and it doesn’t matter the age—almost everyone will find themself back in the dating world at some point. The idea of returning to the dating scene is frightening enough to keep some people from trying at all. The reasons are many: what family might think, the fear of getting hurt, being set in our ways, and the one we’ve heard most of all from older people—not letting someone see what time has done to their body. Online dating is gaining in popularity. It’s increased three-fold in popularity through the years. Years ago, internet dating sites were called impersonal and a place for losers, but it’s important to remember, the impersonal-ness is gone after that first meeting. Dating sites are merely a place to meet a larger, more diversified number of the opposite sex. The New York Daily News stated that in a poll of 19,000 people married between 2005-2012, one third met on a dating site. Consumer Reports, in 2017: 44% of respondents to their poll said online dating led to a serious long-term relationship. Identify Scammers and Internet Trolls.

No, it didn’t happen overnight—for Rick the journey was years; for Cindy six months. In this book, they provide both the male and female perspectives to help others successfully navigate the world of online dating. To avoid the scammers. To become one of the success stories.
