I am a wife, mother and nurse. I have also been obese for the first sixty years of my life, either dieting like crazy or gaining it all back again. I had serious health issues and thought that my body size defined me. I learned how to transform my life to pursue and embrace a healthy lifestyle. I lost over half my weight and have become fit, exercising five days a week. I am reaching out to help other people who are struggling with the emotional and physical toll of obesity find a healthier road for themselves.
