Hi! My name is Amanda and I’m a 28 year old girl from Minnesota. After a lifetime of being the chubby, big boned, and downright fat kid, I’ve finally come to the realization that the dream life I’ve always wanted (kids, lifelong man-friend, picket fence, couture wardrobe, and the list goes on) isn’t just going to be handed to me. I have to create it for myself. I have to make it and, in some instances, re-make it, from the ground up. And it all starts with finally losing the weight and getting healthy.
So to that end, this blog is designed to chronicle my efforts to lose 50% of my current weight. Along the way, I’ll share my triumphs and struggles, tips and yummy recipes, and a few of my favorite things that help sweeten the journey. I’ll also be posting my progress so you can shower me with congratulatory gifts (or at least a comment or two).
