Beth Blair is thrilled to be the SHAPE 2013 Weight Loss Diary columnist and is excited to be sharing her journey in the magazine and the Weight Loss Diary blog. She currently lives in the Minneapolis-St. Paul and has been married to her husband, Jeff, for 10 years and has two school-aged children, Jeb and Maddie, and two college-age stepsons, Robert and William. As a former flight attendant, it comes as no surprise that Beth evolved into a travel writer. In addition to freelancing, she wrote Break into Travel Writing (McGraw-Hill, 2012) and co-founded The Vacation Gals, which won gold in the Travel Blog category in the 28th Annual Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Competition.
