I am beyond honored to have been mentioned on Health.com’s recent article as one of the four inspirational weight loss blogs in today’s article by Tina. If you’ve come here from that article, welcome!
A little bit about me… my name is Beth (if you couldn’t guess from the title of my blog) and I am an almost 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!
Anyway, I’ve lost almost 90 pounds since my peak weight 6 years ago, using Weight Watchers for the last two years to finally hit my goal weight. I started Beth’s Journey in February 2010 after I’d lost the majority of my weight to document the last leg of my weight loss journey and to share my story with others. Health and fitness became a true 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), join my facebook group, follow me on twitter (@bethsjourneytt) and come back and check out my site! I update it daily with different recipes, struggles, exercise tips, and general ramblings about my life.
