It is after much thought and consideration that I have decided to stop producing the Hello Nessa podcast.
When I started this show in July 2011, I needed a place to vent, a place to talk, a place to figure out who I was or wanted to be.
You have heard me laugh, you have heard me cry, you have been with me through the roughest parts of my life thus far and I can't thank you all enough for the voicemails, the text messages, and the emails.
I cannot thank you enough; I really can't.
Podcasting means a great deal to me and I have met amazing people through this media. I will continue to be involved in Pride48 and I intend to turn Hello Nessa into a blog. At this stage in my life, writing what is going on is easier than recording, editing, ect.
I am really in a good place right now and will continue to let you know how things are progressing with my life.
Just a little update, Derek and I are doing well, better than ever really. We took a trip out to Disneyland a few months ago and had an amazing time together. We hit the occasional bump, but who doesn't?
I just celebrated my 35th birthday with a trip to the casina. Lost big, but had so much fun. Derek got drunk and there is currently a video on my facebook of his singing debut.
I have lost 45 pounds so far. I hit a point where I tested what I could eat and still lose weight. Turns out it doesn't work that way. So, I have decided to go back to vegetarianism leaning towards veganism. I am still learning how to read labels and everything, so until I am confident, I won't declare myself vegan. Believe it or not, cheese hasn't been my hang up. I haven't had actual dairy cheese in weeks.
I still do Zumba 2-3 times a week. I see the trainer once and have recently started going to spin classes. You want to talk about your ass hurting for a week. HA! I have muscle where I didn't know I had it and I can climb a flight of stairs without wanting to die.
I have made great friends in Tucson and work is...work. Derek and I have actually talked about moving to the Pacific Northwest. Portland, Oregon seems to fit what our ideal place would be. You never know. We have investigating, saving, and planning to do.
My dear listener pals, and hopefully blogger pals, you mean a ton to me and I hope that you will keep in touch. I still have all the same contact information. Shoot me a text, an email, whatever. Hello Nessa was nothing without you and I will always me grateful.
I love you!
