Healthy Hollie... and family

This blog has always been about me... my journey, my struggles, my success...etc.

Last week, I officially brought my family on board. My goal is to start a focus on HEALTH for all of us. I want my entire family to eat healthy food and become more active. Yes, I still want to lose weight, but I want to lose weight by adopting healthy habits, and including my children in the process.

I have been inspired to start a new that will chronicle my FAMILY journey to health. It's called Healthy Hollie - and family!  I will write mostly about me and my kids, and the move to embrace health in our family, one day at a time.

Why not write about it here, on this blog?

Well, I guess I am a little selfish. has always been about me and MY struggles. I kinda wanna leave it like that! Besides, this is my blog about WEIGHT LOSS. Althought transforming into a healthy lifestyle will most likely lead to weight loss, I still have a lot of demons and issues that are weight loss related. I still feel that I need a forum to write about these things, and I will continue to do that HERE.

Over the weekend it really hit me that losing weight for ME and adopting a healthy lifestyle for my FAMILY are both connected and seperate at the same time. Both are absolutely necessary journey's though... I am excited to see what the future brings.

So if you will... check out and tell me what you think!

I will be back later with a post I have been wanting to write for a while about one of my triggers... and how I plan on dealing with it.
