I'm Chloe, a 30 something living in Newcastle in the North East of England.
My story certainly didn't begin here though - I was born and grew up in a small village in Norfolk, a few miles north of Norwich where I had a happy time living in the countryside and enjoying day trips with my friends.
In my 20s I decided I'd had enough of living in the sticks so moved to London where I spent the most amazing 5 years becoming a grownup.
I loved my time in London but it wasn't until I hit 30 that my life really began to change.
I had been overweight my whole life but after seeing photographs of myself at my 30th Birthday Party I realised that I had to turn my life around. I weighed 19.7 stone, was a size 20 and morbidly obese. The next year I worked very hard to get rid of my excess weight until I reached my healthy BMI.
I'm very proud to say that in 2015 I will have been at my goal for 3 years, I'm a healthy weight and size and not a day goes by where I take it for granted.
I love sharing my weight loss story and if anyone is interested in hearing more I have done a post all about it here.
My 9 stone weight loss was the start of something amazing and just before I reached goal I met my other half Simon. He lived in the North East and after a year of travelling between London and Newcastle I realised that not only I had fallen in love with a wonderful man but also a fantastic city.
I relocated to Newcastle in 2013 and haven't looked back since.
This is my story of a girl from the South falling in love with a city in the North and I'd love to share my journey with you.
