It all starts here.

I have struggled with weight for much of my life. I have had periods where I have been extremely active, fit and healthy, but more recently I allowed a series of difficult changes in my life to change how I felt about myself. I stopped caring about myself, stopped doing for myself and gave up. As a consequence, my weight doubled over the course of my twenties, and now I am unwell and unhappy in this body.

I have struggled with weight for much of my life. I have had periods where I have been extremely active, fit and healthy, but more recently I allowed a series of difficult changes in my life to change how I felt about myself. I stopped caring about myself, stopped doing for myself and gave up. As a consequence, my weight doubled over the course of my twenties, and now I am unwell and unhappy in this body. I am just so tired of feeling like I am not myself, and I am tired of holding back on doing the things I want to because of this weight, and this lack of self-love. I am ready to be able to be a good mommy, I am ready to feel good about myself again, and I am ready to be proud of who I am, and to feel again that the outside represents what's inside. I have a long way to go, but it all starts here.

Personal Information:
I grew up in the Sonoma County Wine Country in California. I have lived all over in the past 12 years or so; New York City, Vermont, Oregon and Ohio are just a few highlights along the way. I graduated from the University of Oregon with a bachelor's degree, and returned for graduate school but had my son and took leave from my program before finishing. I have since moved back to Sonoma County, and couldn't be happier. I'm getting my life back on track now, and I can't wait until I once again look as great as I feel!
