Hi everyone. Karlie here. First of all I am thrilled to be blogging with Shannon. I have looked up to Shannon for a long time and will always treasure our friendship. I think there is power in friendship especially when you strengthen each other. Thanks Shan!
A little bit about myself. I am a simple person, a girly girl at heart. I love being out side. I am passionate about plants and flowers. My true love is gardening, and I run my own Floral business. I have been married to my husband Mike for five years and have two beautiful children Jeffrey and Katie.
I have always struggled with my weight as Shannon said. Since I was little I was the chubby one. Even at my skinniest (a size 12) and in my early 20's I was the "fat girl" (What I would give to be a size 12 again). So many sob stories in my life about being called FAT. And sadly I remember them all. I am generally a happy person. High School was probably one of my saddest times, and probably mostly because I kept it all inside. I grew out of that and with a lot of work became a happy healthy teen out of high school and in the "dating scene" what an awesome time in my life! I plan to be there again. And this time I'm not just sitting here thinking about it!!! I'm actually doing something about it! Join with me!
I will post every Saturday and maybe a little more. All about what we all go through with weight, and my journey to getting fit and back in my skinny jeans.
Thanks for reading~ Karlie
