Weightless Turns Three! (And A Giveaway)
On November 2, 2009, I published my very first post on Weightless. I really can’t believe it’s been three years since I began this blog. This has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I’m not exaggerating.
By the time I started writing Weightless I’d made peace with my body, after a very, very long battle. I’d stopped dieting, and I stopped bashing my body and myself. For the most part.
But I still had sooo much to learn. I still do. Thanks to this blog — where I get to interview scores of amazing authors, bloggers and clinicians — I’m constantly learning and growing. I’m constantly healing. I’m constantly learning to take better care of myself.
That year, in 2009, I’d already lost my dad and being able to pour my heart and energy into Weightless was a relief. It was precisely what I needed.
Today, to celebrate the big 3, I wanted to go back and share some of my favorite posts.
