It seems strange, at least to me, to write a post about my weight-loss when I’m already in the middle of losing weight. When you start a blog about dieting and losing weight, you usually expect it to start at the very beginning, at the before rather than the transition.
In a nutshell, I should’ve started this blog when I was still 220 pounds. Silly me.
As of this post, I’m currently 166 pounds with about 26 more pounds to lose before I reach my ultimate goal of 140. Though I don’t imagine the final 26 pounds will shed quickly, let alone easily, I’m already on the way to becoming a new me.
Which is why this won’t be entirely a blog about weight loss. If anything, it will and should be a blog about my life.
In case you don’t know me (which is unlikely, because I don’t imagine at this point that anyone except close family and the twenty or so people who actually do read my Facebook posts is reading this right not), I am a homeschooled senior and the older sister/babysitter/June Cleaver type figure to four younger siblings. By this description alone, I’m sure you’re expecting this to be some fluffy little thing about serving God through pre-calculus and fulfilling my duty as a woman, while selecting just the right pair of evening pearls as I prepare tonight’s dinner of coq au vin.
And it’s partly that. The pearls and the coq-au-vin part, I mean. I’m about as ungodly as a homeschooled woman can be. And I don’t care, considering I’m an atheist and a lesbian.
But back to weight loss, shall we? I’m rambling again which is something you’ll have to get used to, I’m afraid.
I’ve lost 52 pounds as of this morning, and with any luck, I’ll be well on my way to becoming fit, healthy, and able to wear skinny jeans without looking pained. And be able to run a 5k without wanting to die.
Though can anyone do that, honestly?
This will also be a blog about writing because, naturally, I’m a writer with hopes to learn the craft and one day publish novels of my own (expect me to hawk my wares and guilt you into buying copies when that day does come). And a blog about cooking and baking because as a homeschooler, I’m one of those hateful people who actually has time to let yeast rise and roll out a scratch pie crust.
And once in a while, I just may rant about politics and other such topics I honestly know nothing about. Because what else do you do when you’re a lesbian and an atheist? It’s practically expected for you to go on some rant about Chick-Fil-A and the gender ideals of Christianity.
So this will be a multi-purpose blog. Hope you don’t mind.
