First posts are always the hardest to write. The what do you share and what do you leave out so maybe whoever reads this will come back for another visit. A lot of the time I just sit and stare at the blank page cursor blinking then hit the X and close the window with a sigh of frustration.
Hitting the X seems to be what I do a lot when I get frustrated. Just easier to close it out and forget about it. Well, unfortunately, or fortunately, I’ve come to a point in my life where I am tired of hitting the proverbial X. So, here I am.
Welcome to my little corner of the web. Like so many of my inspirations (Roni, Emily, and Dianne) and those I call family on MyFitnesspal I have a story that needs to be told. Where it ends or when? That I don’t know. What I do know is every story has a beginning, and a middle, and an eventually an end. I know sometimes it would be easier to skip parts, omit the ones we don’t like but where would that leave us? Incomplete without character development and plot holes is where.
I’m not going to sit here and go back to the very beginning, not just yet. These will need to be posts unto themselves but for now we will start at the present, in the now, because that’s where I need to be living.
Hi! I’m Amber, a twenty-seven year old fat girl. According, to all the charts in the world I am obese. Looking at me in person, you might not see it. Clothing hides things that we don’t want people to see.
I love to cook, I like books and music. I own a cat who has more twitter followers then me. I don’t like exercise and I love food which I could blame on the fat part of me but I’m the one who chose to put the foods in my mouth. So, do I blame myself, the choice of eating it, or both?
I work. Probably a little to much. In all places, I could work, I work in a kitchen at a nursing home. I love the job but being surrounded by food may not always be the best idea. Temptation for the tempted. I have a degree (BA) in English. My grammar is far from perfect and I still use spell checker.
I don’t know at this point where the journey will take me but I hope you’ll stick along for the ride.
If you have questions, please ask. I’m not good at talking about myself (who is?) but I’ll answer if you ask.
Thanks for listening!
