Hey! I’m Beth and I am the 33 year young DC-based blogger behind Beth’s Journey.
I currently live in Washington, DC, and though I originally grew up in Connecticut, I moved here in 2002 for college and have been here ever since, so somehow I’m getting close to having lived here as long as I did in CT! I live in a cozy one bedroom apartment in Dupont Circle with my boyfriend John and my dog, Stella, who I adopted in May 2014 and looks more like a stuffed animal than a real dog.
I am a huge fan of puns, live comedy and good grammar. I also love good (& sometimes bad) food, wine (malbec in the winter, vino verde or sauv blan in the summer, and rose all the time), new restaurants, and trying to guess people’s stories.
My original goal with creating this site was to have a place to share my weight loss and maintenance story with others. I started it in February 2010 after I had lost the majority of the weight and wanted to document a real life “after”. I actually struggled with the name of the blog being called, “Beth’s Journey” because I thought the journey was over for me. But, boy was I wrong. Ever since then, my weight has been up, down and all over the place. You can read my full weight loss story and see photos and look at my top posts for some highlights if you want to know more. I’m currently on a mission to get back to Lifetime and hope you’ll stay for the ride. Thanks for stopping by!
