Hi there! My name is Beth. I am 40 years old and live in a suburb of Minneapolis with my husband (Ben) and our two boys (Nathan & Andrew). In December of 2015 I discovered YouTube. I know....where had I been, right? I found myself hooked on watching different channels about organizing, planning, and being a mom. One day while I was home from work with a sick boy I started searching for blogs and You Tube videos about using a planner to help in losing weight. Amazingly, I came up with almost nothing. While I am very familiar with losing weight and know what works (see My Weight History here), I have found myself in a bit of a rut for about the past year and nothing has been able to motivate me to lose some weight. That same day I came across an ad for the Imperfect Planner Sale at inkWELL Press. The sale had started a couple days before, so pretty much everything was sold out, but they just happened to have a planner left with the one layout and style that had piqued my interest. It was as if the stars had aligned and something was telling me that I should buy that planner and use it to help me lose weight. I suddenly became excited about the thought of putting my organizational skills (my slightly OCD nature) to use and seeing some results. As I thought about it more, I decided since I wasn't able to find much in the blogosphere about using a planner like my liveWELL planner to lose weight maybe I should try my hand at blogging and if I'm brave enough even make a few videos. So, here we are.....the journey begins!
