About Author

Elliott is a writer whose passion began when her mother encouraged her to discover the realm of fantasy and imagination by reading books at an early age.  From there, Stacy’s love of literature and writing has grown and matured throughout the years.  With each creative thought, story idea, and poem written, she has developed a limitless world of inspiring words.

Stacy created this blog to share her thoughts and ideas in the written form.  You will see articles that have moved her.  Such as Diary of a Fat Girl where she relates to and inspires others on her quest to lose weight and achieve a healthy pregnancy.  Other publications include The Writer’s Life which features the joys and struggles on her journey through the written word, Journeys Through Meditation which allows Stacy to explore the various forms of meditation, and Year In Reading which is dedicated to her love of books.  New to her blog is Mommy Writes.  Here you can enjoy humorous antidotes as Stacy writes about when motherhood and writing collide.

Stacy currently resides in Port Huron, Michigan with her family and four cats.  She obtained an Associates Degree in Business Administration for the Administrative Professional.  She has published articles for a local paper called the ThumbPrint News, written podcasts and was a featured bloggist on WGRT 102.3 FM’s segment called Entirely Women, is a volunteer and Grant Writer for a non-profit organization called A Beautiful Me, is a ghost writer for numerous authors, and is currently working on her first fantasy novel series.

    1. Well, thank you, Danielle! I wrote another article that is due to be posted on Monday. Check back to read it. I gaurantee you will enjoy this particular article!!! 😉

  1. Hi Stacy, you have a wonderful blog. I look forward to following your journey, especially your diary which I can relate to as a woman with PCOS I have struggled with my weight. Thank you for sharing your intriguing posts.

    1. And, thank you for your wonderful comments. I hope you find some of the things that I have learned on my journey to be helpful. PCOS is a difficult burden that no woman should share, but we do. Hugs to you, and I hope that you find comfort in what you read!

  2. Nice. Why write about yourself in 3rd person? This is is your story…own it proudly. You have nothing to be ashamed of.

    Kudo’s for your willingness to be vulnerable on the internet and declare your dreams. Awareness is the first step towards change and blogging can help hold us all accountable to ourselves.

    Plus, now that you’re blogging, you can call yourself a published author. The minute you hit publish, your words post, making you a bona-fide writer. Claim it sister! I have and stepping into this truth feels magnificent; spurring on more and more avenues of writing for me.

    As for wanting to have a baby, I can also relate. My husband and I were pregnant once, 5 years ago and I miscarried. Such an awful phrase/word for the death of my precious baby and all the hopes/plan/dreams we had for her. Afterwards both my husband and I were devastated and went through a long grieving process lasting years. We haven’t tried again since and am only now ready to prepare my body to try again… ( while grieving I gained over 40lbs) and like you, I vow to be as healthy as possible before conception and beyond. Instead of another diet, I’m focusing on balancing my pH levels and have learned that my body has been mostly acidic causing all sorts of physical complications that have brought me to my knees (so 2 speak). Low to no energy and widespread physic al pain being the main ones that have caught my attention more than weight or clothing size.

    We all need each other’s support in this life and I’m here for you. Health/diet is an individual battle, but a collective war against the diet/food/medical industry fraught with conflicting information, prejudices, shame, guilt, frustration, and social pressure to be “thin” with “quick fix” schemes including surgery that doesn’t get to the heart of the matter or teach lasting coping skills.

    Bottom line is that you’re not alone and I am thankful you started your blog and have reached out for help and support. Check out my blog and hopefully some of my articles resonate with you too.

    Infinite Blessings,

    Rev Lisa Marie

    1. You are a wonderful blessing!

      I thought I would try the 3rd person since I write so much in the first person. I just wanted to see what kind of perspective I could put on it.
