My three favorite reasons to be healthier :)





This is me, 15 pounds lighter - and no longer afraid of the camera! I love this picture, because this smile shows exactly how I feel about myself now - excited and proud of my progress, and already more active with my kiddos, as you can see!

Getting Healthy for my Family - and for Me!

Have slowly and steadily gained weight through medical school and residency, and then through 2 pregnancies. For years, searched for the motivation that would help me make a healthy change, but couldn't find it. Then, through a combination of factors, I came to realize that it was now or never. Found Sparkpeople.com by chance when looking for a good nutritional calculator, as I have rediscovered a love of cooking now that I stopped working and became a stay-at-home mom.

Have slowly and steadily gained weight through medical school and residency, and then through 2 pregnancies. For years, searched for the motivation that would help me make a healthy change, but couldn't find it. Then, through a combination of factors, I came to realize that it was now or never. Found Sparkpeople.com by chance when looking for a good nutritional calculator, as I have rediscovered a love of cooking now that I stopped working and became a stay-at-home mom. Am just getting started but have fallen in love with this website. I am also using some additional tools (The Beck Diet Solution book, and Shaklee Cinch products) to help me on my way.

Personal Information:
Live with my fantastic hubby and my two adorable but exhausting kiddos. Am a family physician, but have taken a break from active practice to raise my kids and focus on our family. Have become heavily involved in my kids' school system, and while I relish the challenge the stress and time commitment has made me realize that I still need to make time to focus on my health.

My dad used to leave this message on the seat of my car on the mornings I had track meets in highschool. I saved a copy all these years, and posted it on my fridge to motivate me.

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"
