The Beginning

First of all, I must admit that I am a compulsive blog reader.  There are quite a few blogs that I have followed religiously for nearly a year now.  Last year I started my own weight loss blog.  It was so much fun to "meet" people from all over the world.  In time though, I realized that the blog was shifting away from the weight loss aspect of things. Although my healthiness journey will be a big part of this blog, there is so much more to me than that because life is so much more than that.

I have yet to figure out this whole blogger thing, so over the next few weeks I hope to get all of my pages set up and have some definite structure going on! For now I will leave you with this 11 Layers of Me Quiz.
