:wave:Hi everyone, my name is Catherine, and I blog about health and wellness at BlogHer.org (http://blogher.org/blog/catherine-morgan) - I also have several other blogs that you can link to from CatherineBlogs.com (http://www.catherineblogs.com/) (they are inspirational, women's issues, health & wellness, and political blogs).

I'm looking forward to posting here now too. I'm a nurse by profession, and worked in a hospital for over ten years. But, for the last several years I have been too ill (with several chronic medical problems) to continue working as a nurse. So now I use my experience as a medical professional, as a patient, and of course as a woman...to (hopefully) help and inspire others to push through adversity and follow their dreams.

I look forward to getting to know all of you.

Hi Catherine and welcome. I can't wait to get onto your blog site "BlogHer" but right now my computer won't let me assess it. Probably just a gliche.

Catherine,

I am excited to hear about a nurse blogging about health and women's issues. I work for an Internet Talk Radio show for women 35+, called On the HomeStretch. http://www.onthehomestretch.com/

Our latest venture was The HomeStretch HealthQuest, where 22 women competed in teams to get healthy from the inside. We used the model of NBC's 'The Biggest Loser', but all of our measurements were inside measurements. Weight was never mentioned or used as a criteria. http://web.mac.com/thehealthquest/iWeb/Site/Home.html

My question to you is: we used triglycerides as a competing value, but in the end discarded it, since we thought that factor fluctuated too much. Do you think triglycerides an important factor for inside health, and if so...how would you give the number consistent value over the course of 12 weeks?

I'd love for you to take a look at our blog and see what you think. I'm also attaching a link for the audio portion of our final reveal of the winners as well as a link to our newsletter.

Thanks ahead of time!
