About Me

My name is Alissa and I have been blogging here at A Journey to Thin since 2008. A lot has happened since then.

I started my weight loss journey so that I could be healthy enough to have a baby someday. I lost almost 90 lbs. by following Weight Watchers Online, went from being unfit to being able to run 5Ks, and completely changed my life. I never reached my ultimate goal weight and gained some of it back. But that someday came and my hubby and I have a beautiful baby girl.

I am currently in what I call the second leg of my journey, The Baby Weight and Beyond Edition of my Journey to Thin. A lot has changed in my life since welcoming our precious baby girl and I am learning to balance it all as I continue this lifelong journey to health and fitness. 

My philosophy is that whatever I choose to do to lose the weight must be something that I can maintain for my entire life. I want lasting changes and not just quick fixes.

I hope that you will join me on my journey! You can expect to read about the ups and downs of losing weight, fitness for beginners, life as a new mom, living on a budget, cooking and recipes, product reviews, giveaways, and life in general.

Thanks for stopping by!
