About This Blog

Hi there and welcome to Living Beyond the Old Me!

I'm Kari and if you are reading this you are probably following me on this journey, whether it is solely through this blog or through Twitter as well.

The purpose of this blog is to not only hold me accountable when it comes to weight loss but to also chronicle my life in the Public Relations world. I will be covering everything form weight loss and PR to clothing, nail polish and more. After all, this is a lifestyle blog and my life is as random, hectic, stressful, peaceful and enjoyable as it can be. Blog posts won't be everyday but they will be often enough to track accountability and keep everyone updated.

I started this journey in January of 2013 and my journey will never be complete because there will always be something that needs (and can be) improved upon. Since then, I have lost a little over 20 pounds but I have gained so much more, a new appreciation for life!

I am currently a senior Mass Communications major with a concentration in Public Relations and a potential minor in Business. I am also a Marketing and Communications intern with a large non-profit organization. In my spare time, a very rare occurrence, I enjoy running / jogging and shopping.

I welcome you to this blog and I hope you will stick around for a while!
