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.


  1. I think it's great that your going to chronicle your family's adoption of a healthy lifestyle. I'm looking forward to your new blog as well as continuing to read your current blog!

  2. Nice new blog :) I've put it in my google reader!

  3. I think that is a fantastic idea!

  4. Great idea! I think it is so wonderful to create a new blog including the family. You do still need a blog just for you and I don't think you are being selfish at all. That is part of the problem that many of us have, not taking the time for us, but it is important for your sanity, your health, and to meet your goals of weight loss.

  5. I am on my way to check out your new blog. I do not blame you for starting another blog, I am kind of like that about my blog. It is mine and it is about me.

  6. That's wonderful! What a great motivational tool.

  7. Welcome to HYC.

    One of the best things we can do for our family is promote their good health. You have it right.

  8. YAY!!!!
    love the bringing in of the family.

  9. I think it's a great idea to keep a separate blog. The things we do for ourselves are separate than the things we do for our families.

  10. I think it's a great idea that you are incorporating your family into your healthy lifestyle. It will do nothing but bring you success! And just think about how good your kids will feel in the process! ( :

    Okay, now I'm off to check out your new blog! I look forward to following that one as well! Keep up the great job Hollie!
