It may sound corny, but I'm on my own personal weight loss journey. I stalled out for about a year and damn, do I regret that. But gaining some back is part of the process and I'm back on the wagon, so to speak. That doesn't mean I won't eat a mini peanut butter cup here and there. I just won't eat 8 of them.
I'm not the type to wear makeup every day, though I do like to wear it. I like doing my nails in a variety of weird colors when the mood strikes me. I like alternative hair colors (was purple but am back to a normal color these days) and I like piercings (sadly, I have less than I used to due to rejection. It's a harsh mistress.) along with a couple of tattoos.
I'm one of those people who will answer an email or a text quicker than I will a phone call. I'm a victim of the electronic age, what can you do. *shrug* Not to mention I end up having awkward phone conversations where I start to talk and the other person starts to talk and then we both stop talking and say "go ahead" at the same time and then there's silence and then we both start talking again. Look, I can't watch The Office without cringing at the socially awkward moments and I've been known to hide my face when it happens in movies because I get embarrassed for the characters. Sorry if you're a phone person, lots of people are! I'm just super awkward on the phone with people I don't know. It's nothing personal. If we get to know each other well I promise we'll talk on the phone if you want to. It'll be awesome, I'm sure.
I like seeing movies, going for walks, roller derby, reading, the intarwebs, gaming, geeky boys and girls, pizza, cats, West Seattle, staring off into space, talking too much (sorry, I talk a lot. A lot. It runs in the family--I think it's genetic. My grandpa once struck up a conversation with someone he sat next to in a mall and it turned out they were legit related to our family), sarcasm, feminism (the older I get the more of a feminist I am. It's about recognizing the gender imbalance and having good conversations about it for me and calling people out on their bullshit.), and a whole bunch of other stuff. I also love parentheses. Can you tell?
I like to think I'm a pretty cool person, if I do say so myself (and I totally just did). I consider sarcasm a way of life and I tell my friends that I mock because I love. I can dish it out and I can take it. I'm going to be honest and tell you that my sarcasm can be, well, kind of mean if I know you really well. I expect if we know each other really well that you will just throw it right back at me. I try not to do that to people I've just met, because I'll scare them away.
I get that some people don't find bigger girls attractive and you know, that's your loss because I am awesome. Yes, I'm working to lose weight, but I'm doing it for me, not you. I'm doing it to be healthy and if a side benefit is super cute clothes than so be it.
