~Chats with Lucy~
You may have read Lucy's Story on this site. When Lucy was a teen she lost a lot of weight by cutting in half whatever she ate, choosing healthy foods, and doing fun active stuff. After being successful at weight loss, Lucy decided that she wanted to help other kids to lose weight and be healthy, too. She went to college and studied nutrition. Now she is a Registered Dietitian!
Ashlie RN also helps with the chat. Ashlie was Lawrence's girlfriend, who used to be overweight, helped Lawrence to lose weight, and later became a nurse and helps kids lose weight.
