Happy Bloggiversary to Me!!

Can  you believe that this blog has been going strong for TWO WHOLE YEARS now?  My, how time flies!!

I actually had another blog first, which I have since abandoned in favor of this one.  I still leave it out there for people to read because I haven’t gotten around to importing all of the posts to over here yet.  :) 

On Sept-14-07 I started up this blog as “Health Habits – the good, the bad, the ugly” to help keep me on a better path as far as my food and exercise went.  I had already completed over a year on Weight Watchers, lost 25 pounds, and knew what to do to maintain that…but wasn’t really doing it very well.  So I split off to this second blog to keep focus.

Here I am two years later using this as my main blog, gaining a daily interest in all things healthy lifestyle related and enjoying an amazing community of like-minded bloggers!  Who knew that after just a couple of years I would cultivate amazing real-life friends and supporters doing this?  Who knew that hundreds of readers would pop by and check out my writing each and every day?  Who knew I would grow to LOVE blogging and feel like my days are not complete without at least checking in?  I sure didn’t!

Just a couple of months ago I decided that it was definitely time to come up with a new blog name and a better focus on what I am really all about.  Thus, Embracing Balance was born.  The time I spent thinking about the name and what it meant really taught me a bit about myself.  Up until then I had always thought of this as a “weight loss” blog, but taking the time out to consider it I realized that I don’t want to focus on “loss”.  I wanted a more positive reason to blog…and something my readers could relate to.  Combining that with the food porn photography I started earlier this year has earned me MANY more readers…and I’m grateful to each and every one of you for supporting me along the way.

Here’s to another great year!! *insert falling confetti here*
