Whether it's a weight-loss success story or a health risk you overcame, we want to hear it

The journey of life is messy and imperfect. But so often, that's what makes it beautiful, too. We all go through ups and downs-and sometimes it's the downs that wind up leaving us stronger, healthier, and even happier people.

That's why Shape and Discovery Life are teaming up to celebrate people who embrace life's extraordinary circumstances and face challenges head on. Whether it's weight loss, relationship challenges, battling a disease, taking a big risk, or something else altogether-we've all got a story that's shaped our lives and made us who we are today.

So tell us yours! What journey shaped your life? What challenge changed you? Shape and Discovery Life want to know. Tell us your story in (in 300 words or less!) at Shape Your Life Story. One story will be chosen and featured in the May issue of Shape!
