    Great post Lisa! It’s so crazy to to think how far I’ve come over the last ten years and how much my life has changed!

      You should take a walk down memory lane and see where you were!

  2. Eleah

    You are an excellent writer with an amazing story to tell! If you want to publish a book, there should be nothing stopping you!

    And as a side note… is that photo from the barista coffee shop? I’ve heard crazy good things about that place but haven’t been.

      Thanks Eleah. I’m about half way through the first draft of my book. I took a break for the summer but looking forward to getting back to it.

    When you were just starting out on your road to weight loss, were you just swimming and counting calories? Or were you doing some other kind of cardio/weight training in addition?

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Just swimming. Then a month later I added calorie counting. It was another 6 months or so that I added other cardio like the elliptical.

    This is awesome Lisa! I am glad you are reaching for your dreams. I have had the same dream for years and last year I started acting on it. I am almost done writing the first book (which will be published next year) and I have a second in the works. I look forward to reading your words in book form. You have so much to share!
