Chris Linnares has quite a story to tell. As a newlywed and new mom she was adjusting to life in a new country. She left her native Brazil to marry the man of her dreams and move to what she calls “the frozen tundra” of Fargo. It was a tough transition. She was gaining weight and getting more depressed. What pulled her out of her funk? It wasn’t medication, but a realization that listening to her body is just what she needed.
