I’m a 40-something repeat offender. I tried and failed to lose weight multiple times before I was successful. I’m still working on it, but I’ve come a long way! I practice mindful eating and follow my own plan called The Core Four method.
I’m a wife to Jimi, a mom to Landon, and a coffee lover. I work as a Financial Analyst, and I love it. I’m a total data nerd but have a passion for helping others.
WHY NOT REALLY HUNGRY?
My blog is called Not Really Hungry because I struggle with mindless eating and emotional eating…basically eating when I’m not really hungry! If hunger is not the problem, food is not the solution.
My ultimate goal is to help others change their lives as I have. When I weighed 245 pounds, I was MISERABLE. I was uncomfortable, embarrassed, tired, and depressed. I don’t want anyone else to feel like that.
It is somewhat scary to share my feelings and struggles, but it is completely worth it if I can make a difference for even one person. I also share things that I hope will help others with weight loss and weight maintenance.
WANT TO GET STARTED?
PLEASE share your thoughts, feedback, and questions. All that I ask is that we all treat each other with respect. I want this to be a safe place where we can support each other. I won’t tolerate anyone being mean or hurtful. If you are mean, I will delete your comment. It’s okay to disagree with me or any other readers, but please be considerate and tactful.
WEIGHT LOSS PLANS:
The information I share can be beneficial regardless of what eating/exercise plan you follow. You may have your own way that works better for you, and that’s great. I just want to provide motivation, inspiration, and support in any way I can. The emotions that lead us to overeating are universal.
My policy is simple. I will NEVER give or sell your information to ANYONE. I am the sole operator of this site. Your information is safe with me. I use Mail Chimp for my e-mail service, and I never send unsolicited e-mail. If you sign up for my mailing list, you can leave at any time.
I have no formal education or training in health or nutrition. Be sure to consult with your doctor before starting any diet or exercise routine. I am not an expert. I can only share my experience and tell you what worked for me with weight loss, healthy eating, and exercise.
I am a member of a few affiliate programs that pay me a small commission (at no cost to you) if you buy something through a link from my site. Please know that I will only link to things that I think would be helpful. I won’t post product after product just to generate sales.
This blog is not about selling. It’s about helping people and keeping myself motivated. If you choose to buy something through my links, I appreciate your support. It is very time consuming and there are expenses involved with keeping the blog running. It would be great if I could earn a little to cover my expenses. If you like what you see and want to support Not Really Hungry in a financial way, you can DONATE HERE.
I would LOVE to hear from you. I still struggle to lose and maintain, so it’s nice to know that I’m not alone. If you have something you’d like to see covered on my blog, just let me know! I’ll do my best to accommodate!
