About Josie

Josie Maurer’s writing style blends information with an entertaining twist to engage readers and deliver memorable content. She is a wife and mother of four children (ages 2 to 17), and is well-versed in lifestyle, family, and parenting topics.

Josie also empowers both women and men in their quest to lose weight through her popular food and fitness blog, YumYucky.com. She lost over 40-pounds after the birth of her fourth child and has since established an online following of hungry foodies and health conscious individuals. On the blog, she writes in a fun, conversational tone to send the message that you can find balance between fitness and your greedy side. Yum Yucky is recognized as one Shape Magazine’s Top 8 Sites For Fitness Motivation and is one of Fitness Magazine’s Favorite Food and Nutrition Blogs. The site was also nominated for a 2009 FoodBuzz Blog Award.

Josie’s expertise has also translated into a budding speaking career on the topics of parenting, fitness, and body image. She has been featured on Mom Talk Radio with Maria Bailey as a Mom’s Roundtable Panelist and at the FitBloggin ’10 health and fitness conference on their Body Image Panel. Josie also co-hosted TheMotherhood live talk topic: Shedding the Pounds and has contributed to Diets in Review as a Featured Blogger.
