The Sassy Pear started in 2007 when I realized I was leaving comments that were way too long on other folk’s blogs. I had no idea that I had anything worthwhile to say, but six years later, I’m still blogging.
This is primarily a weight loss blog, but I’ll be honest, I’m not so great at the weight loss part. I keep fighting though because I believe the only way you fail is if you quit trying.
I’m a 40-something, married with kids, full time employee, part time writer/entrepreneur and there’s a part of me that will always be stuck in the 80s. I love coffee, hot tea, good dark chocolate and reading – sometimes all at the same time. I’m not a fan of working out, but I am a fan of living a long healthy life, so I do what I can. Oh, and I’m pear-shaped (hence the title of my blog). I’m pretty much an open book on this blog – I believe in being as honest about my struggles and successes as much as possible – but if there’s something you would like to know about me, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
