About this blog

Welcome! I am a young woman, wife, daughter, sister, aunt and Christ follower. Everyday I try to be a little bit better than yesterday as I seek optimal health, both physically and spiritually.

I started this blog in Nov 2009 after having some major changes going on in my life. I had lost my job and didn't know exactly where I was headed or what I wanted to do. At that time, I had titled the blog: Turning a New Leaf. I only ended up blogging for a total of 3 days and then forgot about it. More than a year later, I remembered about my blog and my life had changed dramatically (FOR THE BETTER!)  since those posts back in 2009. At that point, I thought it was fitting to rename my blog: Consider the leaf TURNED.

I can honestly say that I have been turning that proverbial "leaf" over and over again as our lives (me and my wonderful husband's) has changed even more so since the blog name change.

We are extremely grateful for what God has done in our lives and for our family and friends for their love and support.

Most of the time, my blog posts are about my weight loss journey: the ups, downs and in betweens. I LOVE to cook and share ideas, so I've been starting to share more details on what I'm eating. Hoping it helps someone meet their personal weight loss goal too! If not about health, fitness or food, it's going to be about God and my relationship with His son, Jesus. I would be nothing, if it wasn't for His grace and I'm proud to share that with all of you.

I hope that as you peruse through my ramblings, you might find something humorous, interesting, helpful and maybe even uplifting.
