Join me as I share the true story behind the numbers and the challenges I've faced along the way.

Read more about my journey and the unexpected impact of chronic illness on weight loss.

My only options were to make dietary changes, exercise, and lose weight. Severe abdominal pain made exercise impossible. I’ve lost 45lbs. But I didn’t diet.
