In August 2007, I made the decision to lose weight. I joined Weight Watchers and ended up losing 33 lbs on the program and have been keeping it off since then. I learned a lot about healthy living, cooking and getting active and feel so much better than I did back then. A few months after I got to my goal weight, I got really sick. My doctor couldn't tell me what was wrong and the clinic...

Greetings! Stephanie here, a Chicago resident and I am proud to say...a patient with a HISTORY of Ulcerative Colitis.

I lost a kidney and have just recently found a path to take because a Doctor took the time to listen and realized I was not a hypochondriac or a big overly sensitive, stressed, depressed woman. (yes, lots of justified sarcasm). I was athletic, very lean and continued to stay fit by enjoying bike rides and playing recreational co-ed softball. However, when I started a family at 25, I had...
Goals: Lose weight


I'm just your average girl from the suburbs with a desire to live and love life to its fullest. In my mind, that implies nourishing, fueling, and moving my body on a regular basis. I have learned that when I eat whole and nutritious foods, I just plain feel better. I'm that girl who's obsessed with her yogurt bowls, oatmeal concoctions, fruit, fresh fish, and avocado sandwiches - but also is OK...

I guess I uploaded a picture too small for the size that is allowed. Sorry for the blur, it's not your vision, you don't need glasses or a stronger pair of glasses! Ok, I am not use to writing about myself but it asks and I will comply. I am a 55 yr old RN. I early retired at age 50 thinking that me and hubby really didn't need my income and that was fine until he was laid off last year. It...
