I'm Stronger Than I Know

Hello, I'm Tara! I've done this before, and now I'm going to do it again.

Marketing by trade, graphic designer by education, interior & decor blogger by night, Italian food lover & cook by birth. Optimist & aesthete.

Since graduating college, I've lost over 70 lbs and gained it back again. I have had a lifelong struggle with my weight, and since I've never been "thin", my goal number is kind of abstract. So I'm working toward a healthy lifestyle and a healthy BMI. ...
Hello, I'm Tara! I've done this before, and now I'm going to do it again.

Marketing by trade, graphic designer by education, interior & decor blogger by night, Italian food lover & cook by birth. Optimist & aesthete.

Since graduating college, I've lost over 70 lbs and gained it back again. I have had a lifelong struggle with my weight, and since I've never been "thin", my goal number is kind of abstract. So I'm working toward a healthy lifestyle and a healthy BMI. Also, no back pain and not being winded when walking up the stairs!

I undid a lot of good, hard work, but I realize that sleepwalking through life is not something I want to do anymore. I am serious about being healthy because I know as I get older it will only get harder. I want to fix my bad habits before momhood because I don't want my future children to go what I went through! I want to live a long, healthy life and be a positive inspiration to my family and friends.

Non-exercise hobbies:

- Reading. I have about 5 books at a time checked out from the library.
- Cooking & eating out. I am a lover of good food, especially simple, local & seasonal. Cupcakes are a love & a vice!
- Decor & design. Blogging for Apartment Therapy is a dream come true!
