David Murray

Hello! My name is David and I'm the Social Media Manager here at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. Last here I began my "Pursuit of Healthiness" and changed my eating habits while adding a bit of exercise. I'm happy to share that as of today I have lost 62 lbs, and my lifestyle has completely transformed. This year I plan to add more exercise into my life while continuing this healthy food thing.
