Hey there fellow (and now LOCAL) Skinny Moms! I can’t express how grateful I am to have the opportunity to reach so many women through Skinnymom.com. With that being said, let’s get to the fun stuff, shall we? If you’ve read my bio you know I am a first time mom (aka FTM, you will come to realize I use all sorts of cool acronyms) who resides in Chicago, South Loop to be exact. What you may not know is that I am often too rambunctious for my own good, in the sense that I can never NOT be doing something (yes I know that’s a double negative). I have a goal of eating at every uber –fabulous and dive restaurant in the Chicago-land area (I’m over 200 so far), so yes I am infatuated with food.

I was an athlete turned “fat girl” in college. I have expensive taste (think Michigan Ave.) with very shallow pockets (think college loans and TJ Maxx). I like to consider myself an uneducated (by traditional standards) and non-certified cosmetology semi-pro (I don’t want to toot my own horn too much). And last but certainly not least, I have a heart that’s almost too big for my chest cavity, which is the main reason I am here. I have a burning desire deep inside my soul to help, motivate, listen, and give advice (although sometimes unwarranted, but I digress) to people when I can, as much as I can. With that, I look forward to providing you with the most up to date information on all things health, fitness, and fashion that Chicago and all of her surrounding suburbs have to offer. If there is anything specific you are looking for information or advice on, I would absolutely love to hear from you!
