About Us

Tara (@tidbits_of_tara & A Life Changing Journey) and Meegan (@redstar5 & redstar5) met in early 2009 when they were just beginning to crack the shell of their true selves, blogging about losing 100+ lbs and the physical, mental and emotional process involved.  As they reached the high point of their Life Changing Journeys they met in person as friends and ended up unexpectedly falling in love. They were married in Vancouver, BC in July of 2011 and now share their healthful lives together in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Here at The Healthy Dynamic Duo Blog, Meegan & Tara write about how they are living their lives to the fullest together.  Blogging about everything from recipes tested and tasted to how they currently maintain their combined weight loss of 230 pounds.

At A Life Changing Journey Tara shares her story of being lost and uncovering herself. The way she tells it, she “began her life changing journey in a 270 pound body dying a slow and very sad death.” She writes a lot about her journey not being just about weight, but also about saving her life on a mental, emotional and spiritual level. She writes candidly about the absolute truth of the process of uncovering your true self and how making her journey public has helped her ways she is unable to explain.

At Redstar5, Meegan writes about how she decided to reclaim her life at 30 after a battle with depression that left her feeling fat, tired and worthless and how she came out the other side feeling more like herself than she could have ever imagined. Her Life Changing Journey is chronicled as her weight loss progresses and the ups and down of maintenance now unfold.

Both Tara and Meegan acknowledge that their LCJ’s have allowed them to step outside of who they once were and uncover their own personal truths about who they wanted to become – and in doing so found each other, and found love. They have joined together in their mission – to help others along their own Life Changing Journeys.  The mission: to build an army of people who care about who they are, to feel loved and deserving of happiness and then to turn the happy loose on others, especially those who don’t think they deserve it. Because as they would tell you, “we know now, that everyone deserves it.”
