Q: Why haven’t you changed your URL from “findingthinagain” since you became healthy and stopped losing weight?
A: I have considered it many times, and decided against changing it, for a couple of reasons. On a practical level, it’s been my URL for a long time and I have a lot of followers who all know me as findingthinagain, plus it’s watermarked on my before and afters and several other pictures, so that would just be confusing and inconvenient. And on a deeper level, it’s a little reminder that I’ve really come a long way since I started this blog. I started off like every other weight loss blog, striving after something I could never truly be happy with. I keep that reminder there to show other people that I did it and they can too.
