I’ve been blogging since June of last year. In the beginning I was informational. I wanted to share everything that worked for me. Since then, this blog has developed into more of a journal and a place where I can hold myself accountable. People ask me a lot what I’m doing to lose weight. I usually refer to my blog when people do, but no one wants to scroll through my rambling to look for useful information. So today I decided to make a summary post for all of the posts I’ve done in the past that I feel would help people live healthier and/or lose weight. These are the suggestions I would make to anybody who wants to make changes that are realistic and long term, and these are the changes I’ve made myself that have helped me get where I am today.
