Regina Bartlett is a blogger and speaker from the gorgeous Rhode Island coastline where she spends her days with her amazing husband Jeff and their combined family of six adult children and two very tiny adorable chihuahuas. She’s active in her church, sings on the praise team, and is amazed every single day at how God has totally changed her life. Formerly 425 lbs she’s battled her weight for 30 years until RNY Gastric Bypass surgery in December 2014 where she lost 250 lbs and gained a new lease on life. She wants to share with anyone who thinks that they MIGHT be interested in surgery and knowing the real truth behind the surgery since there are a lot of misconceptions and fears. Deciding that she needed a challenge to continue with her weight maintenance she decided to embark on running the NYC Marathon in 2016 on Fred’s Team for Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Like so many people, her life has been touched by people affected by cancer. Discovering that her friend of over 25 years was diagnosed with breast cancer she had even more inspiration to run. On November 6, 2016, she completed the grueling 26.2 miles through all five boroughs of New York City and realized her 20 year dream of completing the largest marathon in the world. This blog will travel with Regina as she laces up her shoes and continues to challenge herself while sharing stories of her life and the people who have been an influence on her over the years. You’ll find stories, recipes, crafts, photographs of the wonder that is Little Rhody and countless photos of her tiny pups Sid Vicious and Taxi Fitzgerald. TL;DR: Wife, mother, writer, avid crafter, lover of Jesus and tiny dogs everywhere with a story to tell. FOR BOOKING INFORMATION please use the contact form below or email Thank you!

  1. Regina, I am so impressed with your wonderful ease in articulating the steps that you’ve used to bring you to your healthy weight. I will be passing it along to friends and family, maybe even clients! Plus, I will use your 5 steps in my own journey toward better eating and better health. Thank you!

    1. Thank you so much! It’s terrifying to put myself way out there but it’s been such a benefit to me to share what I’ve learned (and learned from massive failures). I’m putting together some printables too that will hopefully make things easier for people as well. Your encouragement is very much appreciated!

    Seldom have I been so impressed with a blogger as I am with Regina Bartlett. She tells her story of having weight-loss surgery, and the more important part of her process, learning to maximize her results through self-advocacy, changing her relationship with food and much more. She’s a natural public speaker! See for yourself.
