birthday-cake-candle-6February 22, 2010 was my very first blog post. Six years ago I knew that in order to be successful in my weight loss journey, I had to make it public. I was also living with a two month old and a two and half year old and needed to vent about those experiences somewhere. Over the years the potty training posts have phased out (thank goodness) and my passion for fitness and health has become more of the focus, but you never know when a “mama needs to vent” post might appear.

This blog has played a HUGE part in my journey, and I am so grateful to everyone that has ever taken the time to read one of my posts. It helps to know that I’m not alone in this process, and that sometimes I am helping others to know they aren’t alone either. Whether it’s motherhood struggles or weight loss woes, we’re all in this together, right? RIGHT!

Six years is kind of a big deal, so…I think it’s time for a GIVEAWAY! I want to give back to my readers, to say thank you for clicking, liking and sharing. I’ve been collecting some prizes for a while now and I am SO excited! The winners will be selected and announced on my actual blogaversary, Monday, February 22, 2016.

There will be three prizes, and three winners – one prize per person. There are a bunch of ways to enter and to increase your odds of winning, so take a look at the Rafflecopter entry form at the bottom of this post.

Once again, THANK YOU for being here, and good luck in the draw!
