Have you ever noticed how the “About” section is the most intimidating?  There just seems to be so much PRESSURE!  Well, my name is Amy.  My blog is about food.  And weight loss.  And love.  This may seem like an odd combination but trust me, they are all connected.  If I could remake the “reduce, reuse, recycle” symbol I would make it say, “Food, Weight, Love”.  They feed into each other – at least this has been my experience.

So, here are some of the basics… I am an Aquarius, Irish and really love to bake and cook.  I am a runner, a writer at heart, and a former Washingtonian transplanted to Michigan.  In the last six years or so, I have lost approximately 80-90 pounds.  I know, it’s like a 4th grader, or maybe a 6th grader?  Or a combination of both?  I don’t know but what I do know is that once I started losing weight I learned how to cook.  And through all of this were the lovely ups and downs of being in and out of relationships.  Let’s just say, from this experience I have A LOT of opinions and theories of how all this all plays out and connects!  Hope you enjoy the site!

    Congrats on losing all that weight. About me sections can be kind of hard to write, because you don’t want to sound like everyone else.
