Welcome to the OCEANS blog! This is our first post and we just want to tell you a little bit more about what to expect from this resource on our website.
OCEANS began because we realize that living with obesity can be difficult. Through joining together, we realized the importance of having a community of people with shared experiences.
The purpose of OCEANS is to be a safe space- and that continues onto our blog page. On this page, you will find a wide variety of content covering different topics like physical activity, food, mental wellness, and maybe even some personal stories from members of the OCEANS community as well. We may also continue our #ScienceAgainstStigma campaigns (which you can find on our Twitter and Facebook) by posting about our favorite journal articles here.
Please keep in mind that the majority of content on this blog is anecdotal. We are not trained health care professionals and encourage you to seek treatment to find the best plan for you.
Welcome to our community! We’re so happy that you’re here. We hope that you enjoy the content found on this blog!
Until next time,
Founder and President of OCEANS
