Married Life, Weight Watchers, Friends and Stuff

Married Life, Weight Watchers, Friends and Stuff

It’s been a beautiful week in New Orleans, and I’m hope that this weather will continue through August. This is typically the worst hottest month of the year, but the first day was splendid. Window washers cleaned my windows last week too, so we’re enjoying the view from the sofa with the blinds open a lot right now. Michael and I have been adjusting to married life, and the last few weeks have been pretty great. We feel at home in our new church, and we’re finding our way into new living patterns – spending time together and giving each other space. I haven’t found a good groove with Weight Watchers yet, but I’m not giving up. My weight has not changed much at all since I got married. In some ways that feels like a win, but it’s disappointing too because I know I can do better. My weight just hasn’t been the focus, so I’m not going to beat myself up for something that I’m not making a priority. My clothing size is still changing though. A few months ago I was wearing 24’s in everything, and right now I’m much more comfortable wearing 20’s in most things. […]

Fat People Still Have To Eat, And Sometimes I Don’t Want Salad

Right now I’m sitting in a hipster coffee shop drinking a latte that was so pretty that I didn’t want to touch it. They serve the biggest, most ridiculous doughnuts I’ve ever seen, and I’ve been to some pretty ridiculous doughnut shops. The lattes here are too delicious to express with words, and on this day of rest, I decided to indulge in (part of) a doughnut. They’re so big that if I tried to eat it all I’d probably end up at the emergency room, or maybe I’d just feel sick. I don’t intend to find out. I spend a lot of time sharing my thoughts and ideas – on social media, here on the blog and in person with friends and family. I’m honest about my journey, struggles and victories, and it helps me keep track of where I’ve been and where I’m going. Being as open as I am also invites judgement, sometimes even from well-meaning people who just don’t have a clue. I like food…sushi, cookies, lattes, etc. Sometimes I eat that stuff, and if I’m eating something pretty I’m probably going to post it on Instagram. I’m as open about that as I would be about posting […]
