Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Hello all SPeeps! I am new to this site and am new the the practice of health and weight loss. Although I have much knowledge in the areas of wellness and health, I have very little practice. I joined this particular site as it offers some tools I can really use such as food and fitness tracking, but my favorite is the weight loss tracker where it tracks my body changes and shows me a graph...I love pictures! I am looking to meet others online who can help motivate and support me as I take this journey and I plan to reciprocate.
