Karen is totally fearless! She is willing to share what is in her mind, heart and body, regardless of the potential for total embarrassment. She is willing to STRUGGLE with her perceived weaknesses. She digs straight to the heart of an issue.

I feel humbled to know her.


Comments: I love Karen's honesty and openess. She has come a long way since I first met her.
Comments: Karen's spirit and love of life lead her quest for better health, and she joyously takes us along for the ride.  What a fantastic companion she is in our search for our better selves!
Comments: Karen's blog is well written and deals with subjects most women can relate to.
Comments: She speaks to women, really speaks to us, about those feelings and thoughts we have but are unable to formulate in our minds.
Comments: Karen lives in the real world with insight that inspires and motivates in a painless fashion.  Her insightful, self reflective strategies drive me to reach my own goals.
Comments: My friend is the best!!!

I love to read Karen's blog. It's motivating & very real & I can relate to a lot that she says.

Comments: She tells her stories in a down to earth manner...never preachy.
Comments: Karen isn't afraid to put it all out there - what works for her, what doesn't, triumphs, mistakes, and the lessons learned along the way.  For a lot of people, managing weight isn't about counting calories and exercise.  It's also about getting at the weight behind the weight, why we make the same wellness mistakes over and over again.  And sometimes that's scarier than the idea of having to lose 40 pounds.  Karen doesn't take the "my way or the highway" approach.  She invites you along for the journey.
Comments: Karen's blog posts are uplifting, real (in a world that doesn't seem to know what REAL is anymore) and educational, but not in a preachy way. Her style is very relatable - you feel like you're talking with a friend.
Congratulations, KCLAnderson!
