Living in the land flowing not with milk and honey but fried chicken and cornbread, losing weight living in the heart of the South seems like a hopeless mission at times. Join me, a self-proclaimed Southern Belle who loves food second only to Jesus, as I attempt to chronicle my weight loss journey, one jumping jack and grilled chicken breast at a time. While Scarlett O’Hara may have proclaimed, “I shall never go hungry, again”, I think a good civil war or corset may be just what I need to reach my goal weight. I guess we’ll just have to see.

Best wishes on your continued weight loss and get healthy journey … from another Southerner who’s been there, done that!

      So glad you joined me. The more the merrier. Maybe we can encourage one another especially since we share the same distaste for the Gators. Ha!
