It’s funny, I have the topics of my next 3 posts already outlined in my head, but this first one has me sitting here staring at my computer screen. I guess I should start out with my bio and why I decided to write this blog.
WHO I AM vs. WHO AM I?
Well, I’m still working on the “Who am I” question, so here is the “Who I Am” at this point in time!
My name is Deebe(D.B.) I’m a 33 year old, over educated, non-degree-d, single, super fat female. I am an anglophile, a bibliophile, and a political centrist. I have on going issues with my religion/spiritual life, anger, depression, perfection, my siblings, and my parents. Oh and my weight of course, that’s a given. I think I’m a pretty average American woman, on the inside.
I live in the great State of Texas, and occasionally in the State of Denial, where I live with a herd of animals and my youngest sibling. I’ve just recently rejoined the work force, after a brief hiatus, I’m not sure I like my new job yet, it pushes some of my boundries and I’m still deciding if I want to expand them or not.
WHY A BLOG?
The short answer: “I want to reach out to other fat people, especially women, and let them know they aren’t the only one out there.”
The Long answer: I have spent the majority of my life stuggling to NOT BE FAT. I went to my first official diet program at the age of 9, abet unwillingly. Over the last several years I have decided to stop the stuggle! About a year ago I was reading an amazing blog about the Fantasy of being Thin. I was amazed! Here I had some how believed that I was the only fat person who thought like that!! I started thinking about all of the things that people had discouraged me from doing, trying, or seeing until I was “thinner” or “lighter”. I’m staring down middle age, and I realize that I’m unhappy, and stuck in a rut with my “when I get get below 250 pounds” thinking.
In my next post I’ll hit on some of the things that make my tick…and tick me off 🙂
