And so it begins...

....the long awaited blog! 
I hope you will bear with me as I figure this whole "blogging" thing out!  I'm a newbie! 

I have been told by numerous people that I should start a blog about my own personal weight loss and maintenance journey, so here it is! 

In short, I have lost a total of 100 pounds and have kept it off for 4 years and counting...

My intention in starting this blog is to share useful tips, suggestions, and practices that have worked for me.  I am no fitness professional, nor do I have a nutritional or dietetic degree.  I do however, know what worked for me and I would like to share that!

If you're anything like me, the proof is in the here they are!

I will share additional pictures later, but these should do for now!
