Hi! My name is Meredith and I'm 27 years old. I've created this blog to share my journey to better health. For most of my grown up life I have been fairly unhappy with my body. If there is any point when I was semi satisfied with my physique it was when I got married in 2006. I was confident in a strapless dress and didn't think twice about being in front of a crowd. I wasn't perfect but I was content. Since then I've gained about 70 lbs and make a habit out of hiding. Wow, that was really hard to write. It's embarrassing and discouraging. I'm not exactly sure what happened. I suppose I just stopped caring what I was putting in my body and I've never been great at exercising. And I may have picked up a few bad habits of my slender, can eat anything and not gain a pound husband. (Love you hunny!) Well, 4 years have passed and I'm very happily married but physically miserable. I'm tired of hiding, sitting on my butt, and throwing pity parties. I've decided the only way I'm going to get my rear in gear is if I have the accountability (& hopefully encouragement) of the world wide web. So here I am. Follow me as I eat less, eat healthier, and MOVE more.
