I am just getting settled back in after returning from the Healthy Living Summit in Philly – what an amazing conference! If you’ve come here from meeting me there, seeing me speak, or because you found me from someone else’s conference recap, welcome and thank you for stopping by!
A little bit about me… my name is Beth (if you couldn’t guess from the title of my blog) and I am a 27 year old foodie working and living in the Washington, DC area. I originally grew up in Connecticut, but came to DC for undergrad and never left. Somehow that means its been 9 years since I moved here… crazy!
I’ve lost almost 90 pounds since my peak weight of 250 pounds 6 years ago, using Weight Watchers for the last two years to finally hit my goal weight of 164 pounds.
I started blogging in February 2010 after I’d lost most of the weight as a way to document the last leg of my weight loss journey and to share my story with others. Health and fitness became a serious passion of mine once I decided to change my life, and I wanted to start doing something every day that makes me happy, so that’s how Beth’s Journey came to be. Please feel free to email me (bethsjourneyblog at gmail dot com), like my facebook group, follow me on twitter and come back and check out my site! I update it daily with different recipes, struggles, exercise tips, and general ramblings about my life.
