About Healthy Girls Life
I’m Sarah Barker – I should have set up an About Me page when I first started blogging but oh well I am now! I guess I would give a brief overview of my life. I talk about my story in a lot of my blog posts but here is a modified version.
I’m 43 and I studied at The University of Southern Mississippi. I absolutely loved Hattiesburg and loved college. I was an active member of Pi Beta Phi sorority for 4 years. I majored in Advertising – which required a good amount of graphic design – and minored in Marketing and Public Relations.
I’m originally from a suburb of Houston, Texas called Spring. In April 2013 I received a job offer as an Assistant Buyer for Men’s Outdoor Apparel at Academy Sports + Outdoors Corporate Office in Katy, TX (which is right outside of Houston).
I moved back in April at 255 lbs and in a size 2XL-3XL shirt, pant size of 18 and dress size of 22. The next month after being at Academy for less than a month I decided to change my life. May 14, 2013 I began my journey to losing weight and getting healthy.
I live at my parents’ until the end of this coming June to save and I will be moving into Houston and I cannot wait! I love traveling especially since most of my college friends live in New Orleans and Mississippi. Shopping is my favorite, working out, trying new things and I have the sweetest cat Henry.
My life has changed drastically in the last year so I’m just living every day to the fullest and planning for the future of my body!
Healthy Girls Life provides the best health, nutrition and weight loss content on the web. Everything we say is based on scientific evidence.
If you’ve ever spent time looking for health information online, then you’ve probably realized that the advice is conflicting and that no one seems to agree on anything.
All of the gurus have a product to sell and most opinions are more about belief and personal experience than facts.
The main goal of this site is to search the scientific literature for true answers, preferably from randomized controlled trials, which are the gold standard of research.
Then the science is deciphered to make it understandable by professionals and laypeople alike. Every effort is made to be objective, unbiased, honest and to present both sides of the argument.
