So here it is, my very first blog post.  After years of wanting to start a blog and never being able to figure out something to say, I am FINALLY starting this in 2014.  

It is funny because I feel excited, and nervous.  After all, it could be that I am the only one who will ever see this and if that is the case, I am ok with that.  So why am I doing this?  It is simple really- I have been struggling since a teenager with my weight and health.  I have begun to make changes in my life over the last two years that I am finally seeing come into fruition and the idea came to me that there are probably other people out there that are going through similar struggles.  My wish, is that we can connect and support each other in our journeys.  My absolute dream would be if I could inspire people along the way.  Realistically, no one sees this, then I will have an amazing record of my transformation which would be awesome, because even though I like collecting them and imaging I will use them, I DESPISE writing in journals.  

So that is the why, but what is SoulSparkles?  I was looking for a name that described me and what I was hoping to accomplish.  Ask any of those close to me and they will tell you that I have a glitter/sparkle/tiara/tutu addiction! So I wanted to incorporate that with the idea of allowing who YOU are as a person to SHINE- hence the name SoulSparkles.  

My plan for this blog is to share my weight-loss and 'happiness' journey; share tips and tricks that I have learnt along the way, and hopefully inspire you in your life some way.  In addition to my blog, I plan on eventually creating youtube videos and blogs, sharing recipes and exercises, and sharing things that inspire me to make my SoulSparkle.

I hope you can join me on this journey!
