I have been watching The Biggest Loser for years. I love watching the transformations that happen on the show. People who thought that they were hopeless, stuck and destined to be miserable get to the root of their issues and come out on the other side armed with tools to live a healthy life.
With the New Year right around the corner, I figured it was a good time for this post. As many of you know, I have suffered on and off with anorexia for many years. I believe that I am in a better place in my recovery now than I have ever been before. I may [...]
All good things must come to and end, right? My time as a Verizon Health & Fitness Voices blogger/participant is coming to an end next week. I thought today would be a good time to recap the devices I have been able to try out.

Yesterday morning I sat at my laptop and cranked out a few blog posts, including this “Wordless Wednesday” post, only to realize a few hours later that it wasn’t Wednesday. Nope, it was only Tuesday. I guess I was really excited to get that post up, huh? That or maybe I am in a rain-induced [...]
