About Emmie

about_emily1Hi there! I’m Emily, formerly Skinny Emmie, a thirty-something weight loss fitness-seeking blogger, fashion lover, social media strategist, and writer. I’m on the journey from 455 pounds to healthy – whatever that number ends up being on the scale. I reside in Kentucky – land of fast horses and the best bourbon.

Want a short list of posts that will give you an intro to who I am? Here it is! 

Authentically Emmie documents the good, bad, and ugly of going from super morbidly obese to healthy. With over 113 pounds shed so far, I cover the gamut of physical and emotional challenges that I’ve encountered from a very personal perspective. I also blog about plus size fashion as it’s a personal passion and is one of the keys to making me feel my best in my own skin. Apologies in advance for excessive mentions of glitter, dresses, the gym, and Starbucks.

Want to get the Cliffs Notes version of my journey? Start here.

I am a corporate marketer by trade who now owns a social media consulting company. I am the community manager for Enell Sports Bras, am a contributor at ShePosts and HerKentucky, and serve as a Fitfluential ambassador. Locally, I serve on the Board of Directors for AAF Lexington and Social Media Club Lexington. Junior Leaguer.  I love to speak at events and write content for various publications. Check out the highlights of various media appearances here.
