The Beginning


My name is Emily and I am a first time blogger. I am from a small town and I work as a real estate agent. I have read that if you keep a journal of your daily activities that it will help with the journey you are taking, so I just figured I will make mine public.

I have been overweight all my life...for the most part. In high school I lost about 75 lbs. *really skinny, but then I went to college and gained it all back and about 50 more for good measure. haha. I'm a happy person, not depressed from my weight, I wear sleeveless shirts, shorts and even bathing suits without the little skirt. I'm just old enough now to realize that I'm still young enough to lose weight and not have some crazy belly skin thing going on.

Total I want to lose 120lbs, but I'm also realistic. It's a process that will take some time and if anyone is interested, please follow along.

I would like to say one more thing...I have an unusual sense of humor. I use the word "FAT" because I am. I don't call other people that cause it wouldn't be nice if they were offended by it. So please don't think by the use of the word that I am some how fishing for the "oh...your not fat" complement. Some people say fluffy, or big boned, or more to love, I just prefer to call it what it is...fat!

Fluffy? I love it. I also use the word fat...but I gotta say. Fluffy is awesome. It makes ya sound like a cat. It's not fat it's if you cut yourself fur would come out.

I just happened upon your blog today. I haven't been actively blogging, but felt really good about my week so I hopped on, posted a summary for the week, and added some interests to my profile. Then I thought I would see what others have the same interest in weight loss since that is my main focus now. Glad I found yours! I, too, call myself fat. Better to be honest with myself. I have a mirror and even if I didn't, I'm not blind!! I can still look down! Good luck on your journey!
