A few weeks ago I received a request for an interview from a writer at the website TruthinSlimming.com. At first the name sounded a little gimmicky and I was skeptical, but I checked out the site and was surprised to find it was a very respectable site with lots of helpful advice. So I went for it :) I have to admit it was difficult trying to clearly express everything I wanted to say. I discussed somethings that I have not had the concentration to write as full posts here yet. Topics like my early weight loss, my PCOS diagnosis, and my goal of pursuing a career in the fitness industry. Obviously since the interview touched on many topics I did not go into detail with most of them, but I did get more in depth then I have on here thus far.
The difficulty I had came in trying to include all these important issues while not going on for too long and sounding somewhat literate. They are all things I plan to expand on in this blog, but for instance, the emotionality involved in losing 50 lbs as a 13-yr-old and the effects it had on my life is hard (for me) to express in writing the way I wish. I have a million thoughts about it in my head, but organizing them coherently is not my strong point.
At first I did what I have always done best and procrastinated. I kept thinking about the things I wanted to say and it overwhelmed me a bit. Finally I decided I had to get it done, I toughed through it and sent it (including a video demonstrating a few of my favorite resistance moves.)
I hope it reads all right, I'm afraid to read it word for word again, I skimmed it and it looks good :D. Thank you Sunil for the opportunity and for putting it all together so nicely. Hopefully soon I can find time (aka the mental capacity) to delve deeper into these areas of my life. Especially PCOS because I know there are many women out there struggling with it and I would love to be of some help to them.
Soooo after that long, drawn out introduction here is my first interview: Katie McGrath: Blogging to a Better Body :D
