After noticing that the first thing I look at when checking out a new blog is the About Me section, I realized that I need to get one for my own!

So, here goes:

My name is Lee and I am 32 years old. I am not exactly sure how that happened! I live in Atlanta, GA with my husband Jason and our Golden Retriever, Murphy. Jason and I got married in June of 2010. I am originally from the Washington, DC suburbs and moved to Atlanta on a whim about 8 years ago.

When I was younger, I was overweight and when I was in my late-20’s, I struggled with disordered eating and got quite thin. I think I’m finally almost to the point where I am comfortable in my own skin and comfortable with what I eat and don’t eat. Sure, I still have moments, but food and I finally have a pretty decent relationship. It took a long time.

At some point, I got into running. In college, I used to run but never more than 2 miles. Now, I run a lot. To date, I’ve run one full marathon, seven half-marathons and several shorter races. I’ve run the ING Georgia Half-Marathon for three years in a row and don’t see my streak stopping anytime soon.

Despite the name, I don’t think In My Tummy is necessarily a food blog. I definitely don’t have the patience to photograph and post everything I eat, so when you see pictures of food, it’s probably my dinner and probably something from a recipe or something I’ve created. I mostly just write about what’s on my mind, sometimes food and health related, most of the time, not.

  5. Love your blog! I think a lot of us struggle with being “weird” about food. I have definitely been too obsessed with what I was eating and what I wasn’t. Good for you for finding balance!

  6. Great Blog! I will be reading!

  7. I discovered your blog this evening. I’m realizing I share a lot of where you are coming from (cold all the time, once wearing sizes you never thought were possible, obsessing about food, etc.) I just started my own blog to work thru my “issues” so know that you are serving as an inspiration in some way 🙂 I look forward to reading your posts!

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog, looking forward to reading more of yours! What a great story. It sounds like you really learned your body and who you are!

  9. I just found your blog through Healthy Tipping Point– I’m looking forward to following it! Your dog is very cute!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog 🙂 I totally appreciate your story and I feel like the hardest thing is finding the right balance. I am still working on that every day!!

  11. I just found your blog through Yes I Want Cake and I love it! I can’t wait to keep reading! You have a very open and honest “feel” about you and I really admire that!

  12. Hi! I just found your blog and love it…your ‘about me’ sounds very similar to my own story. Anyways, I just wanted to say hello and that I’ll be back!


  13. What an inspiring story! I’m glad that you’re committed to being as healthy as possible. You’re right – many times, it’s not easy!

  14. Hey random question…are you still getting married this June?? I love all things wedding so I was just wondering.

  15. What a fantastic story! Thanks for sharing! I can’t wait to read more, and especially to hear about your wedding plans!

  16. What a great blog! I think a lot of us can relate to your story in one way or another. Being “weird” about food is fairly normal I’m learning, but not something we have to live with.

  17. I enjoyed checking out your blog today and I will be back to check it more in the future so please keep up your good quality work. I love the colors that you chose, you are quite talented!

  18. LOL – “….32 and not sure how that happened…” – tell me about it :(…I’m nearing the 30 mark and wondering where the hell time went…and wishing I could stay a nice round 25 for the rest of life…

  19. Goldens, YES! I’m not a huge dog person, but if you’ve got a golden, I’m in love 🙂

  20. Hey, just found your blog and looking forward to reading more!!!
