In all honesty I can't remember what happened in the first few months of 2011. I actually started blogging back in February of 2011 after being inspired by some weight loss blogs that I read about on Yahoo. I do still follow some of those blogs, but for the most part I've shifted from a weight loss blog to a lifestyle blog.
Anyway, some bullets of January, February and March of 2011:
*I started attending TOPS (Taking Off Pounds Sensibly) meetings in an effort to lose weight. In total I lost 32 pounds by May while on the program, but I've gained about half of it back. We won't go into those details though.
*I participated in a Post Card Swap that was hosted by a message board that I've been an active member of since 2002. In total I received 20 something post cards in the mail from all over the world.
*I started participating actively in a few blog link ups - although I don't participate in any of them anymore for various reasons, I am thankful for them because they led me to some of my best blogging friends.
*I participated in my first ever Polar Plunge with my BFF Alison
*I participated in my first blog swap where I met the wonderful Angie
*During these three months I was obsessed with The Bachelor and Connie's amazing recaps. I sure hope she does it for Ben this season.
And that's about it. Since most of my blogging was diet/food based at this time I really only updated on life stuff if it was really important/excited and that's where these things all fall. I really enjoy looking back at all my pictures, I still need to be better about taking more of those! Hopefully the spring and summer months will prove to me more interesting. I can't believe 2012 is almost here!
