Welcome New Readers!

Hello and welcome to Beth’s Journey! I am so excited to say that my story was featured today to kick off the Health Heroes series on the Washingtonian’s Well+Being Blog. Me? A health hero!ย It’s so surreal because I can vividly remember reading story after story about people changing their lives years ago when I myself was obese. I was so envious and only dreamed of the day that I would have a similar story to share. And what do you know? That day has finally come! I am so unbelievably happy. ๐Ÿ™‚ย You can see the articleย here!

A little bit about me… I’m a 26 year old foodie (and healthy living blogger) in the DC Metro area. I have been in DC for almost 9 years since I went to undergrad here, and I love it! I currently live in Arlington, VA and work in downtown, DC near the White House. I started this blog because health and fitness became a real passion of mine once I decided to change my life, and it’s not something I do at all in my day job. I wanted to start doing something every day (besides eating healthy and working out) that I was passionate about, and that’s how Beth’s Journey came to be. Please feel free to email me (bethklein at gmail dot com), follow me on twitterย (@bethsjourneytt) and come back and check out my site! I update it daily with different recipes, exercise tips, and general ramblings about my life. ๐Ÿ™‚

If this is your firstย time here because you found me through today’s article, please take a look around and you’ll find some great recipes to try and hopefully some motivation! Here are a few essential places to look to help you get to know me and navigate around the site!

Enjoy!

    You look fantastic and very pretty!!! I’m starting WW on Monday and was wondering if you have a kinda low points homemade salad dressing. I don’t want all the junk that’s in bottled dressings at the stores. And I can’t afford the very expensive bottles at the health food stores. Thank you!

    Beth, I forgot to ask you what is “The Shred”. Is it a form of exercise or meditation?
    Being raised in a Jewish household didn’t help with my weight. There was always the clean plate syndrome and you never wanted to insult anyone by not eating what they lovingly made for you.
