About the Skinny Scoopers: They certainly aren’t woefully skinny, nor do they think you should be! Chris & Lisa are NOT dietitians. They’re not nutritionists, herbalists, acupuncturists, or hypnotherapists. Call them a couple of diet detectives... they are mothers and journalists who like so many others, STRUGGLE to stay at a healthy weight! These two embrace the belief that looking and feeling your best isn’t some far off destination or goal tied to a number on the scale... it’s a choice. A choice you make every day regardless of where you are in your weight loss efforts. Between them, they’ve lost over 100 pounds. Between them, they’ve worn many hats in life... news anchor, business developer, developer, mom, wife, researcher, freelance writer & reporter. Now they put those skills to their highest use... helping each other and helping YOU stay on the path of better living with information, encouragement, and a little entertainment too!
