By day, I am a Biochemist at Washington University School of Medicine. By night, I am a Blogger at Survival Mom by The Working Mom http://www.guide4moms.com/
Introduction
I am a professional working woman (holding a Master's degree in Biochemistry) and mother of two children under the age seven.  By day, I work in a research lab at Washington University School of Medicine; By night, I blog here at Survival Guide by The Working Mom; and all in between I spend my time raising the most wonderful kids a mother could ask for.  


Juggling work, my blog, dance lessons, baseball games, work outs, cooking healthy meals for the family and tucking my kids into bed every night with a good book can all be done without spreading oneself too thin! (no pun intended)  Which brings me to the purpose of this blog....

After a ten year weight struggle and having tried every diet under the sun (including gastric bypass surgery) I am finally losing weight (over 170 pounds) the "right" way and keeping it off.  In January 2012, I began blogging about my journey to make myself accountable for my continued weight loss and it has grown into much more.  It has grown into a place to come for inspiration, motivation, delicious low calorie recipes, weight loss tips, giveaways and a little bit of funny all mixed into one.  Come join me on my journey to Loserville!

He is still implanting women with Essure, even after thousands and thousands have become sick and even died from it! He blames their symptoms on aging and discredits their suffering. Doctors are suppose to help, not continue to make women sick. I would not trust him.
