Newsweek's website features a special section called "My Turn" where they call for 850-900 word essays from people about their own lives. This week, the topic is health:
Health Triumphs: Tell Us How You Survived a Health Crisis Tell us how you met your greatest health challenge. Did you overcome an illness? Did you finally lose the weight you always wanted to lose? Did you start exercising after years of inactivity? Did you train for a marathon or quit smoking? Did you start eating right and stay with it?
