My First Interview as a Blogger :D

   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
