I currently live and work in a major metropolitan area of the U.S. I moved to this city upon graduating from the BEST university in the country - WE ARE PENN STATE! While I knew I wanted to leave the Motherland after college, I never envisioned it being in this city. As fate would have it, there's a reason for everything!
I have a bachelor's degree in Management Information Systems. Once I worked in the MIS field, I quickly realized that the subject matter is not for me, and I needed something more meaningful. In the fall of 2010, I enrolled in college yet again and am pursing a Nursing degree. Like I said, finding a purpose in my life!
In October 2012, we found out we were expecting our first child. I say this so lightly, but believe me, we were in total shock! While we were not planning on ever having children, we are both excited and scared and nervous for the arrival of our daughter this June 2013! Life is about to get way more interesting :).
Anyway - why am I here? I originally started this blog as a way to hold myself accountable during what I suspect is going to be a long weight loss journey. As of October 2012, I was down around 40 lbs and was working my way toward goal using Weight Watchers and regular exercise (though, I was struggling with the numbers going in the direction I would have liked). Now that I am pregnant, I am on a temporary hiatus from weight loss. However, I fully intend to get right back on the wagon once the baby is born. I am really excited to get back to a more structured way of eating after all of the hardships I've experienced in the food department since becoming pregnant.
I hope you stick around to follow along with me on the adventures of motherhood, weight loss and everything else in between!
