Not Rocket Science

For some reason, I had some weird desire to watch “My 600 Pound Life” the other day.  They were having a marathon or something, so I watched a number of episodes.  During one of them, the man said something about losing weight being hard.  He didn’t say it due to exercise, but due to not …

Going for It

I’ve been bemoaning the fact that I didn’t think Camp NaNo was right for my family.  The entire time, I’ve been secretly wondering if I might just set a goal to blog every day.  I even more secretly plotted to blog a lot one day (a number of blogs) and just set them to post on …

Deaf

I feel like such a jerk!  I’m fat.  **gasp!!**  What?!  Say it ain’t so!  Yes, it’s true.  I’m fat and I can admit it. My then-husband was sure to tell me often exactly how fat and unattractive I am.  Obviously, his words left scars.  Massive scars which I worry will never heal.  If the man …

Bra

I hate bra shopping.  It’s worse than jeans shopping.  Seriously!  I’d rather wash dishes than go bra shopping! First off, you have to go through the process of bra shopping.  What a painful process!  The first step is admitting that it’s time to look for a new bra.  That means change.  Yuck!  And then you …

Three Hours

I recently read an article which said that successful people get up three hours before they’re due to be at work.  Being a morning person, that just seems to make sense for my life.  Sure, it means I need to get to bed a bit earlier than my normal old-biddy hour, but that too makes sense …

Be Fair

I just read a blog by a woman who wrote about an overweight woman who dared to wear a bikini.  She was talking about how we should love our body and be proud of ourselves, blah, blah, blah. As a fat woman, I couldn’t disagree more.  If we love our bodies, we have no incentive to lose …

Dream

“Dreams” has been a fairly common thread in my life lately. In my entire life, there has only been one man whose face has actually been visible in my dreams.  Jerry O’Connell.  Mmmm.  Jerry O’Connell.  I know, I know – not your typical dreamboat, but for some reason, he does it for me.  He was …

Onward and Upward

I’m done with the negativity. I want to apologize to you for putting that out there. I was sitting on my emotions for a while, but it was only hurting me. Pounding them out on my keyboard seemed to help me feel better (I always have felt better after getting my feelings down on paper). …

Approaching Deadline

It’s looming – the deadline for the start of NaNoWriMo. And I still haven’t decided whether or not I want to do it. I know, I know – I can start at any time. But, life is so busy right now that if I do it, I want to give myself every single day that …

They Accept Me!

So, I’m fat. I’m 120 pounds overweight. Technically, I’m morbidly obese. I’ve been told I don’t look as heavy as I am, but I am still quite fat. I try to live a normal life, but it does hinder me somewhat. Amusement park rides and movie theaters aren’t suited for someone who is an extra …
