My name is Wendy Fulkerson, I'm a Mom to three teenagers, and a business owner. In 2008 I went from having my final parent pass away, to getting a divorce after a 20 year marriage, to moving across the country AND the Big 5-0 was looming on the horizon.
Along with all this came feeling sorry for myself, and I found myself in a place that I never thought I would be…38 pounds heavier than I ever had been. I started having some health issues, not being able to sleep, a lump in my throat with an overactive thyroid, my blood pressure was constantly at Stage 2 and I had to be put on meds to try and control it. Plus, I was having horribly heavy periods.
