About the Blogger


I’m a native Denverite with a passion for dark, rich beers, expensive lipstick, and muddy Wranglers. I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Colorado in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in English writing and linguistics.

In the fall of 2014, I joined Weight Watchers on a whim and started this blog to document that journey. As a serial dieter and life-long member of the fat kids club, I didn’t have much hope that Weight Watchers would “work,” but I was pleasantly (and shockingly) surprised to find that weight loss was, indeed, possible — once I found the right plan!

Life hasn’t been easy — or particularly good to me — over the course of the last 3 years. After losing over 80 lbs. in one calendar year, I went to work for Weight Watchers full-time as a Leader. Since then, my life has taken many detours and wrong turns, and Weight Watchers has been the only consistency in my life… Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for my weight loss.

To sum up what you’ll find here on my blog in the most simple terms possible: these are  the ramblings of a fat Weight Watcher Leader crawling her way to ONEderland!
