I didn’t want to stop posting here without explanation because I didn’t want you to think that I threw in the towel or got kicked out of PriorFatGirl or anything like that. The truth is, shortly after learning of my second pregnancy, I decided to move over to my own blog, where I can focus on pregnancy, motherhood, and healthy living. Don’t get me wrong – I know I can do that here because Jen has always been (and I’m sure always will be!) super supportive – but I wanted to do more of my own thing. I have put some self-imposed pressure on myself; I have been feeling very guilty that I haven’t blogged as regularly as I had hoped – and that’s not fair to Jen or to the PriorFatGirl readers. It has taken some time to get the blog up and running, and while it’s still kind of bare bones, I hope you’ll check it out sometime.
I hope this is not goodbye for us and that you keep in touch via my new blog, Twitter, or email. I will be changing my Twitter handle from PFG_Dawn to Fit_Dawn and will probably change that in the next day or two (I’ll announce on Twitter too). My new blog is FitDawn.com and my email address (for now, anyway) is firstname.lastname@example.org. The blog will follow me through this pregnancy (and how I’m trying to stay fit), post-pregnancy and the weight loss that I hope to achieve, as well as the ups and downs of being a full-time (pregnant) working mom just trying to become healthy.
I would like to send a huge, loving THANK YOU to Jen for allowing me to blog on PFG and for supporting me through so much. If you don’t already know, Jen is an amazing woman who is thoughtful, kind, and genuine. Another big hug and THANK YOU to Liz for being my PFG partner in crime, as well as my friend – thanks for letting me vent and admit my challenges and struggles to you without judgment. And to beautiful PFG Elle – thank you for your continued inspiration and beautiful writing. I’ll always be checking out PFG to keep up with all of you!
And last but not least, the biggest, warmest THANK YOU of all to the PFG family for everything you have allowed me to share with you and for everything you have shared with me. Thank you for encouraging me, kicking my butt, and sharing your own stories. Thank you for listening to me whine, celebrate, and everything in between. Thank you for getting me through half marathon training, your support when we said goodbye to Cain, and for your congratulations on baby number two. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
This is not goodbye…it’s see you soon!
