{Nourish} The last one




It's true what they say, "Time flies when you're having fun." I can hardly believe it's almost been a year since I turned my healthy lifestyle Facebook blog, {Nourish}, into this weekly column. 


I remember the day my first column (a brief bio and history of my weight loss thus far to set the stage for future columns about my continued journey) was posted on I was a nervous wreck. I was terrified that I'd made a mistake by putting the most vulnerable part of myself on display for the world to see. (I'd been warned that when media is posted online it can take on a life if its own.)  


I waited with bated breath for that first low blow which I felt could easily erase the hard-earned pride I felt about my accomplishment. To my delight, I was overwhelmed with support and encouragement from readers, friends and family. People that I didn't know from Adam would stop me in Kroger to ask if I was "the girl from the paper." And with that, my 12-week feature column turned into a year's worth of everything I could come up with regarding not only weight loss but fitness, food and healthy living.  


As much as I've enjoyed my writing debut, all good things must come to an end. I'm ready to be seen not as a former fat girl, but for the healthy whole person that I am today and will continue to be for the rest of my life.  


I'm not a fan of good-byes so I'll keep this short and sweet: I hope that I've been able to inspire anyone who struggles with their weight the way I have to get healthy the right way -- that has always been my main focus with {Nourish}. I hope that I've been able to show through my own journey that a healthy active lifestyle change can actually be fun and fulfilling down to your very soul. I hope that you all will strive to be better today than you were yesterday, as I continue to do the same. And I hope that, like me, you will encounter and surround yourself with people who want the same happy healthy life, free from the physical and emotional burden of being overweight.  


Eat clean, train mean, get lean. And with that, I bid you adieu. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for reading.
