ABOUT THE BLOG
My goal in starting this blog is to join the community of other bloggers that are working on improving their lives and sharing the ups and downs of self/life improvement. Most importantly I would like to chronicle my journey to becoming a healthier and hopefully thinner version of myself. Additionally I would like to focus on multiple areas of my life (financial, spiritual, maternal, etc) that need a little “jumpstart”.
My name is Megan. I am a 28-year-old single mom living in the middle of suburbia, west of the great city of Chicago. My son, Preston and I have been living with my parents since he was 3 months old and he will be 4 this summer. I can’t believe we have been living here for that long!! I work in the mental health field, having completed my master’s degree in May 2011. I love what I do. I spend most of my day time hours caring for Preston – he is a total ham and the light of my life. I work in the evenings a couple of days a week. My current goals are 1. to begin a new weight loss process, 2. get my finances in order so that Pres and I can get our own place, and 3. trying to accept my role as a single mom.
