About Me

Hello! Welcome to my blog!

My name is Stephanie! I am a Certified Health & Wellness Coach, owner/operator of Food Addiction Rebel.

I have struggled with my weight and food addiction most of my adult life. I made the tough decision to have weight loss surgery in 2007. I had the Lap Band surgery. I had many complications and had to have it removed 6 months later. I gained all the weight back I lost and then some. I weighed over 500 lbs. and in 2014 I had Gastric Bypass Surgery. I lost a significant amount of weight, but I suffered a lot of complications from the surgery. (You can read about all the complications I’ve had on other posts). I was back on the struggle bus and my weight started to fluctuate yet again. I had to have another surgery in 2017 at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. After that surgery and the complications that followed I decided to get serious about my food addiction. Education is the key to success!

Are you a food addict? Do you lack motivation? Do you struggle with accountability?

I started this blog and got certified as a health coach to help others struggling with their weight, also to inspire, motivate and educate people on how important living a healthier lifestyle is. Learning doesn’t have to be boring! Learning about your health opens a gateway to an exciting new life! Are you ready for a change?
