Who are Suzie and Dianna?

Two best friends chronicling their struggles with weight, their unwavering mutual support, the continuous quest for size 10 jeans, and an intense yearning for a Chicago-style hot dog.

We are two women trying to lose weight and be happy along the way. It doesn’t matter if the road is paved with failures. Every Monday a diet starts and every Monday a diet ends. By Tuesday, we beat ourselves up over the failure. We need to be nicer to ourselves, have a few laughs and enjoy the journey.

(Can you believe how skinny we were?)

Join Us On Our Journey!

We invite you to join us. We hope to inspire whatever little, or big, successes (and failures!) are had along the way too. We are here to cheer each other on. We want this to be fun, rewarding, and cathartic and just maybe by helping ourselves, we can inspire and help others as we make this journey together.

What can you expect from us? Encouragement, inspiration, and lots laughter, in the form of weekly podcasts, blog posts, and informative how-to's delivered straight to your inbox.

No Really, Who Are Suzie and Dianna?

A NY Times writer once compared us to Lucy and Ethel. Ridiculous! Absurd! Let us give you the real inside scoop into who you're talking to here.

  • Dianna
  • Suzie


​There are 3 things I can tell you about me.

#1- I love tangerine colored shoes! I have 3 pairs so far. My shoes all match a tangerine skirt I’ve bought. I’m trying to lose weight, so I can fit into it. I need to lose 10 lbs. to stand in it and 15 lbs. if I want to sit down, so until then, I can’t wear my tangerine shoes.

#2 - I have a lazy cleaning lady and since she’s friended me on Facebook, I don’t have the nerve to fire her. She cleans every other week. She doesn’t dust the piano and I have to straighten all the pictures on the wall, and rearrange the knick-knacks back to where they belong, on the bookshelves. She is very nice, but if you’re going to fake houseclean, you have to learn to fake dust first.

#3-I have been on more diets than anyone I know. I start every Monday, except for the time I told Suzie, the reason we couldn’t lose weight is because Mondays were too obvious and we should start our diets on Thursdays. I lost 2 lbs. the first Thursday I tried it, so it will work.

Maybe that New York Times writer knew what he was talking about...
