Introducing Stacy Fierce

Some people are surprised to know that I did not always struggle with weight. Up until 9 years ago I was a size 6 and gifted with curves in all the right places and a waist that was wonderfully designed. During this time in my life I enjoyed an active lifestyle that consisted of training with a personal trainer, power walking, biking and anything that meant being outdoors.

Some people are surprised to know that I did not always struggle with weight. Up until 9 years ago I was a size 6 and gifted with curves in all the right places and a waist that was wonderfully designed. During this time in my life I enjoyed an active lifestyle that consisted of training with a personal trainer, power walking, biking and anything that meant being outdoors. 

As children came on board my lifestyle changed. Gym time was exchanged for naptime; since I was nursing I thought I needed to eat for 2 to keep my supply up. I found that “Stacy” time was non-existent and a little selfish to ask for. Pretty soon I was caught up in putting my family first and I lost a sense for who I really was. I had become Stacy the Homemaker and was caught up in the daily grind of running a household.


This journey with Dr. Oz, Dr. Roizen and my fellow Housewives of Oz has helped me to rediscover who I am. This journey has been so much more than losing weight. It has taught me that it is okay to put yourself first - in fact it’s the most loving thing you can do for your family. Although I take away some time from my family to workout and take care of me, I am replacing that lost time with many more years as a healthier and fitter mother and wife. My energy levels are through the roof and everyone benefits from that.

The most profound part of this journey for me personally is that I found me. I’d like to introduce you all to that person that was in hiding for so many years, the person I promised America I would bring back when I looked into that camera and vowed that I was bringing sexy back. I’d like to introduce you all to - Stacy Fierce! She is fun, loves life and lives it to the fullest. She has rekindled her love for the gym. She loves to dress up and show off and she loves her roles as a mother and wife. She is genuine and is on a new mission to assist others to reach their weight-loss goals and to uncover their inner sexy. She is a person who believes that any challenge in life can be accomplished with the help of great friends, belief in self, a leap of faith and a drive to attain whatever can be dreamed up.

It was this journey that proved to me that once you put your mind to something and defeat all obstacles thrown at you with the assistance of others then that is when you become unstoppable. Don’t let yourself be the one stopping you from being happy and unleashing your inner fierce. YOU can do it all!

I’d love to hear from you. Reach me @ stacyryoudocs@gmail.com

4 Steps to Shedding Your Pandemic Pounds

Forgive yourself, and start walking toward a healthier you.

For those of you who have put on the Pandemic Pounds or added several new COVID Curves, you are not alone. Alarmingly, the American Psychological Association has recently published that almost half of all adults in their survey now have a larger physique. In fact, 42% of people reported gaining roughly 15 pounds (the average published was surprisingly 29 pounds but that included outliers) over the past year. Interestingly, 20% of adults in this survey lost about 12 pounds (I am surely not in this group). Clearly, there is a relationship between stress and weight change. In addition, one in four adults disclosed an increase in alcohol consumption, and 67% of participants distressingly revealed that they have new sleeping patterns.

This past year has brought about what has been called the 'new normal.' Social isolation and inactivity due to quarantining and remote working have sadly contributed to the decline in many people's mental and physical health, as demonstrated by the widespread changes in people's weight, alcohol consumption, and sleeping patterns. Gym closures, frequent ordering of unhealthy takeout, and increased time at home cooking and devouring comfort foods have had a perceptible impact. In addition, many people have delayed routine medical care and screening tests over fear of contracting Covid-19 during these visits. Unfortunately, the 'new normal' has now placed too many people at risk for serious health consequences, including heart attacks and strokes.
