starting over

Today, I made a huge decision. Well, let me back up for a second. In 2012, I gave birth to a little girl (a feat I was told that I would never be able to do and a feat that I’ll talk about in a later post) while facing my husband’s future deployment (yep, we’re a military family). So that he could follow our adventures, I created a blog called This Momma Stuff Just Got Real. After several weeks away, he returned and the true purpose of the blog dwindled, despite having followers.

I tried to salvage it by creating another blog with the same name as this one on health and wellness but it was short lived too as we moved and got busier in our lives.  Time got away from me and so did my memory of them. Fast forward to today: Independence Day of 2016. The day I freed myself of those two blogs. To me, it’s a big deal. To you, it’s the story of this blog’s history.

However, it’s a bigger deal than just a huge decision. It’s a brand new start. It’s a way for me to launch this blog with one purpose in mind: ME!  That’s right. It’s about me. It’s about me as a daily project. It’s about my constant struggle with PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome. It’s about my desire to lose weight. It’s about me loving myself despite sometimes not wanting to do so. It’s about me commiserating with women who feel the same way, with or without PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome. It’s about me empowering women to go on throughout their day with the full knowledge that they can make it through simply because one more woman is going through a struggle too and they are aspiring to make it through too. After all, there is strength in numbers. It’s about living life, laughing at ourselves and loving every single minute of this ride.

In the words of Nina Simone’s song Feeling Good: it’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me! And I’m feeling good! Thanks for reading today’s post! Stay tuned and join me on this endeavor to have a happier, more fulfilled life through the experience called: The Tina Fite Project.
