My name is “B”
There are a lot of different words to define who I am (daughter, sister, aunt, friend, etc). There is another one that I won’t normally choose but is true…fat. I’m not someone that feels they need to lose a few pounds, or is even overweight. I have about 150 pounds to lose. Yikes!
It would be easy to say that I simply need to lose weight because I’m ridiculously unhealthy but I feel like I need to get to the real reasons…that’s one of the reasons I’ve started this blog. It’s time to be honest with myself and basically let it all out. Yes, I want to be healthy, but there are other reasons too. I want to go to a club and not feel like an ass. I want to find love, start a family. I want to be comfortable at amusement parks. I want to live my life! There a million reasons and I don’t want to dig into all of them right now.
Because “fat” is not the only way to define me, here’s a little more. I’m a graduate student, hoping to eventually teach special education (hence the name – which took about 100 tries to find a name I liked and was available)! I recently started a running program (a lot more walking than running right now) and actually love to work out (then why is she fat?!). I love to hang out with my friends and family. More on all of this later.
I hope you join me on this trip. I can’t promise the most exciting posts and there will mostly likely be some miserable times (if losing weight was easy and fun, don’t you think I would have already done it?) But I will be honest. I will also start uploading photos as soon as I find my camera (because if I don’t want to look at a text only blog, why would anyone else?)
Until next time…
