OY. It has been a long time since I have written here.

First: YES. I am still alive.

Second: THANK YOU for your comments and emails and homing pigeons, checking in on me and telling me that you miss this little blog. I appreciate that more than you know.

And Third: It’s moving day!

Moving where…? To my new blog, of course! (You didn’t honestly think I was leaving California, did you?)

Now, I know what you’re thinking…
”Really, Melissa? REALLY? What is wrong with this blog? You’ve worked so hard/this is a perfectly fine blog/life is always going to be a journey/I DON’T WANT TO UPDATE MY GOOGLE READER WITH YOUR NEW BLOG ADDRESS…”

I’m sorry guys. I promise, it will be awesome.

Truth of the matter is, this blog will always be my first love but like 99.9% of first loves, I’ve grown out of it. I started to feel stuck in the confines of writing about weight loss, healthy eating and how much I was (not) working out. I felt like I had to keep apologizing every week I didn’t lose a few pounds, even when there were so many other awesome things in life to tell you about. I found that I was sort of done talking about the journey to lose weight…and I was ready, after a couple of years and around 75-ish pounds lost, give or take…I am ready to just write about the awesome life that I am living right now.

And THAT, in my opinion, deserves a brand new shiny blog.

DRUMROLL PLEASE….and update your Google Readers to….


So this, my friends, will be the last update on Journey To Marvelous. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for reading. It has been a great run!

I hope that you will appreciate that I kept a little part of my old blog identity mixed in with my new blog name. A little tribute to where I started, perhaps, with eyes on the future.

NOW: Please follow me to my new blog home…there is lots I can’t wait to share with you guys!
