Vapor Rising – The Evolution of a Journey
Change is something that really scares the crap out of me. However, this change has been coming for a while now. When I first started my blog it was primarily about my weight loss journey. As time progressed I became more open about my life and past. So much so that my weight loss and fitness journey no longer became the path, but were a step in what started to feel something bigger.
The last 3 years has seen me confront some major demons that I’ve buried for the last 30+ years. Obesity is often a symptom of a larger underlying problem. In my case it was a symptom of domestic abuse, homelessness and mental health.
Speaking about and sharing my experiences has played a huge role for me in getting to this point and somewhat normalising what I’ve been through.
It felt like I had outgrown the 199to99 name and was struggling coming up with an alternative. In the end I’ve just settled for my surname. It’s who I am, it’s what this journey is about.
My blog’s content will still be the same, you’ll still have updates on my weight loss and mental health. It’s really just a name change and for me to feel more comfortable with the message I’m putting out there.
