Weight Watchers and daily exercise changed my life, and sparked a goal to learn as much as I could about nutrition and health. At the age of 45, I returned to school to obtain a certification in nutrition and wellness, and started taking any cooking class I could find. I volunteered as a chef's assistant at our local cooking school, then went after a certification in weight management.
