Hi! I’m Joanie and I’m The Very Hungry Housewife.
I’m at the point in the story where the “caterpillar” realizes that all the eating and eating she has done has caused her to be ‘big and fat’. She is sick of feeling so horrible and now she is ready for a change. She eats through a leaf and feels much better. She realizes it’s time to make some lasting changes in her caterpillar life – to eat healthy and emerge as a beautiful butterfly.
I think my story is quite similar to other women who were at one time in their lives healthy and fit until they became a housewife. Somewhere in that process, you lost who YOU were. The importance of taking care of this person vanished in the need to care for everyone else. Can you relate?
I am here to share my ‘caterpillar’ journey with you as I transition from a fast food couch potato condition into an active, fruit and veggie-lovin’ lifestyle. Today marks the first day of ‘cocoon life’. I have tasted the leaf and there is no going back.
Join me on Sundays for my weekly blog post as I am sure there will be many exciting things to share along the way.
Disclosure: This Series was inspired by the beautiful Very Hungry Caterpillar children’s book, but has no official association with the book. If you don’t have a copy in your home, we highly recommend it! It’s such a fun story with a powerful message!
