Live and learn - an ongoing process.

Even at [age redacted], I'm very much a work-in-progress. Thought I was fat @ 30 (I have pictures to prove myself wrong, including one here), which of course then became a self-fulfilling prophecy.

I'm tall, large-framed, and muscular (under my Shamu layer), and have managed to ditch close to 50 lbs. since my omygawd moment somewhere just south of 300, but after 50 losing weight is an almost Sisyphean task.

Twice married, twice divorced - not going there again! No kids, which is a good thing since my goals have always included living a life of adventure. Which I have.

I'm also, as of 12/23/08, a breast cancer warrior. I won a chance to fight it, and so I did. And I won.


Member Since: 2/20/2007

Fitness Minutes: 4,030

My Goals:
Get more time in on my bike, and on my yoga mat. Ditch several decades of pounds.


My Program:
Road biking. Hot yoga. Slow-carb eating six days a week, with the 7th the only day I'm permitted dairy, wheat, or any kind of sugar.



Personal Information:
In an effort to recover from two decades in Hunter Thompson's "cheap plastic hallway" - network TV news, specifically - I hung out my shingle as a storyteller.

No, you won't see me at the local children's library. I throw too many f-bombs to be invited there. I use my skill as a speaker, writer, producer and erstwhile standup comic to drive change in healthcare and healthcare tech.

How good am I at talking? I talked my way out of police custody in Saudi Arabia. Not bad for a girl, right?

A professional rabble-rouser, I wrote a book about managing medical care, "Cancer for Christmas: Making the Most of a Daunting Gift," that's fierce, funny, and became an Amazon best seller.

My purpose in life is to help transform healthcare into the patient-centered wellness machine it wants to be.

Let's roll, shall we?

    No problem hon!

    If you want to just join and come check it out whenever you need support or get a "spark" feel free to do so. We have a few members that work that way. And, since we put up new challenges bi-weekly (most of the time) there is always something different and new that may fit your lifestyle at that time. Many members jump on board for those challenges. Either way I know where you are and I'll keep in touch.

    PS: Love the head shot!

    Hey,

    I saw you on the writers workshop team I wanted to invite you to another team (okay so it's mine!) because I'm about to start Script Frenzy this April and need something to keep me on track. The workshop will keep me writing but I need a challenge to go with it and yet want some people who know what it's like to combine writing and staying fit. The team is called, "The Challenge" and can be found on my sparks page. Hope to see you there. I'm starting a new challenge for us this April.
