    I’m not necessarily a new reader, but I enjoyed reading the tidbits about you at the end! It’s always interesting when you learn something new about someone! 🙂

      Sometimes it’s nice to share more personal things.

    Hey! I’ve been a reader for awhile and enjoyed all your Portland posts (biking, where you go in town) and try to force myself not to think of Portlandia while reading them 😛

      Ha that’s awesome!

      Thanks for reading Katie. Where are you from?

    I started reading your blog after seeing your guest post on run eat repeat. It caught my eye because I live in Portland too. I didn’t read it for a couple years because I took a detour from my weightloss journey. I was still eating right but had no interest in exercising and let life get in my way. I am one of those people who can maintain but not lose weight from diet alone. I just started reading again last summer when I decided to restart my weightloss journey. Love your blog! 🙂

    Thanks for the link back to your post on plateaus. I have been struggling all month and just realized last week it was probably due to too much cardio and very little strength training. I have been using resistance bands and weights in some of my cardio this week. I’ve considered getting a gym membership just to use the weight machines but they have always intimidated me and I don’t know how to use them anyway. Did you have a personal trainer or someone to show you the ropes when you first started on the weight machines?

      I am so glad you are back to reading and back on track. I hope you beat your plateau and continue losing. Strength training will definitely help with that.

      Years ago I had a trainer, Christian. I had a bunch of sessions with him where he taught me weight lifting and then he opened his own crossfit gym. I went to his gym a few years ago and loved it! If you find the right trainer, they are wonderful.

    I love your beer posts:) I also was drawn to your blog because of your personal achievement with the weight loss thingy. 110 pounds is BIG bragging rights, so you totally have my respect and admiration.

    What a great idea. It’s thoughtful giving new readers a brief chance to catch up with your story. Being a new reader of yours myself, the synopsis helps to give a better all around picture of who you are, and a bit of a timeline to frame it in a well.

    Thank You!

    p.s. Lookin’ forward to that book!
