Sometimes it's embarrassing to write this blog. I was sort of mortified at BlogHer when it finally dawned on me that I was going to have to introduce myself to people as "Inner Fat Girl." Honestly, though, connecting with so many of you people has really made this exercise in self-humiliation worth it. Obviously, I knew before I wrote this that I wasn't the only person to struggle with weight issues or depression or a deep fear of demon-possession movies, but reading your stories and rah-rah comments makes it so much easier to see that all the issues I battle aren't unique and aren't insurmountable. Thank you for that.
Plus, you have to know that I love that every my mom turns on "that internet," she holds her breath for what I'm going to say next.
Really, these people make it woefully easy to mock them.
Also, a certain young fellow who I babysat for a dozen years or so has baited me in the comments of my last post. He sure grew up to sound intelligent but to not be too bright! I think he's forgetting about the pictures I have taken over the years. This took me about five minutes to find, little friend.
But now that he's given me permission, you can look forward to open season on stories of all the hell spawn I babysat for over the years. Yay, just what you wanted from a weight loss blog!
Oh yeah, about that weight loss thing. Your comments really motivated me to start caring about that again. I'm still pretty immobile from my hip ridiculousness, but I am going to rev up cooking for myself, eating better and exercising, so look forward to that in the future too. If nothing else, it's cheaper than Ambien and should induce ZZZ's.
I will pick the big winner of the Amazon gift certificate tomorrow at noon, so if you haven't entered yet, leave a comment on this post.
