When I tell people about the journey I am about to embark upon I am met with curious eyes, that may be masking “is she crazy?” eyes. Who quits their job to jump in their car and blog about one of the most personal things in their life? Well, I guess I do.
Those who know me know that I have struggled with my weight for the majority of my adult life. I am not a special case, like most who struggle my weight goes up, it goes down, it goes up, up, up and up and here I sit way heavier than I ever thought I could or would ever be. I am tired, physically and emotionally with dealing with this extra baggage (ha!), it’s time for a change and a big one. I decided to couple my love for adventure and travel with my passion to find my health and wellness and so “Losing Weight off the Interstate” was born.
I will be traveling North America stopping in towns to reconnect with old friends and hopefully leaving with new ones. I will be reaching out to personal trainers and nutritionists to learn about the food and fitness culture in their communities. I will play tourist and check out the farmer’s markets, restaurants and hopefully have the opportunity to meet individuals who are making a difference in the health of their town.
Please consider joining me on this journey, reading along while I falter and flail my way across this great country of ours. I promise to deliver honest posts and hope to endear my followers to me to ease any potentially humiliating moments and stories. Just you weight, it’s going to be a ride of a lifetime!
