(New) Beginnings

by carolyn on January 1, 2012

Me: I just ate like 4 different fried foods for lunch…how can I pen a weightloss blog today!
Leslie: Sounds like a perfect first sentence.

I’ve been meaning to start this blog since blogs were conceptualized. At first the only thing holding me back was the fact that I didn’t have an awesome design. I swore up and down that if only I had a professionally designed blog, I would start to blog.

The blog has been ready since June 2011.
This is my first post.

Luckily for me and my blog, January 1st is a day for new beginnings. I’m pretty sure that if this was a soon to be best selling book about weight loss rather than a blog my agent would encourage me to release it on January 1, 2012 rather than June 23, 2011. Thanks Agent!

This blog is all about my quest to become a happier and healthier person by moderating the things that hold me back (junk food, laziness, negativity) so I can binge on the positive-LIFE.

If you haven’t already added this page to your favorites, you will want to do that ASAP. In this blog you should expect to find the following:

* Heart wrenching and thought provoking tales of my struggles with obesity

* Humorous insight into many topics including shoes, family, puppies, and martinis.

* Delicious healthy recipes

* Workout tips (I have a few trainers so these tips will be legit and may include pictures and/or videos)

* Shockingly transparent confessions of pitfalls in my journey of wellness (such as today’s cheese fries luncheon)

This blog is in its infancy but will soon include all the juicy details you’re dying to know that even my Facebook doesn’t reveal!!!  Check back to learn my heaviest weight EVER, my current celeb crush, and more.
