I am a lifelong Florida resident, but hate the heat. I also hate roller coasters, but love theme parks. I have worked in several different industries, including the nonprofit sector, childcare centers, retail stores and a major newspaper corporation. I hosted children's birthday parties at McDonald's in my teens and still have a scar on my arm from a hot fry basket.My greatest achievement is becoming the last mom to my daughter through adoption from the foster care system when she was nine years old.In addition to my husband and daughter, I live with four cats, a dog and a mannequin named Vivian. I am a magazine junky, own too many shoes and collect tons of recipes that I never attempt to make. Taking typing class in middle school is one of the best decisions I've ever made - my handwriting is horrendous! I love pizza, ice cream, YA fiction, unicorns, hot pink and Netflix. Yes, I'm basically still 12. I blog about weight loss, healthy living and body acceptance at www.shrinkingmomster.com. Come find me on Instagram at seekerofsilly and @rachaelmoshman on Twitter.
