It’s my blog’s birthday! Two years ago today, I wrote my first blog entry! Since then I have written 488 posts and had over 80,000 views. Starting this blog was the best thing I’ve ever done for myself, it was truly a lifesaver for me! I have come so far since that first blog post.

I originally started writing the blog because I thought it might help me vent my feelings and frustrations, I also had a fellow support grouper who blogged and had been reading his blog, check him out here: http://beariatric.com/. I decided it might help me to start writing so I did. As my journey has progressed so has my blog, over the past several months I began to add educational pages since my educational background is in health education. Two years ago when I started writing this blog I never envisioned it to become what it has. Last March my blog was nominated in two categories in the Annual Backstage Pass Radio WLS Awards. I didn’t win because I up against some of the bigger names in the WLS community, but I was an honor to be nominated.
I’ll keep writing this blog as long as I am on my journey which will be for a lifetime. There is no end in sight right now. Writing has saved my life and it will continue too.
