I am who I am...what are the words to describe me? Well I guess I could say read my blog and find out for yourself, but how rude would that be? You could read 100 of my blogs and still not know me. I don't even know if I know me. Sometimes I shock myself. I am in a state of constant change and yet I am still the same me that I've always been.
I could run down the list of categories that I fit in and labels that I wear if that's what interests you. I am 35. I am (mostly) happily married. I am a mom to a beautiful little genius girl whom I love with every fiber of my being. I am morbidly obese. I am usually a redhead. I am an all American mutt who is just a little more Irish than anything else. I am the youngest child in a blended family. I am just a few credits shy of a Bachelors degree in Psychology that I have been working towards off and on for the last 15 years. I am a reader, a writer, and a dreamer. I am a wannabe philosopher. I am a lover AND a fighter. I am a scrapbooker and a scifi nerd. I am a good friend and a great cook. I am an animal lover who falls quickly in love with most any animal I meet. I am a lover of (almost) all things musical. I am a lover of all kinds of people. I am an open book with very few blank pages. Is that enough labels for you?
I am in the process of trying to reverse 35 years of bad habits. I'm trying to learn to live my life healthy. I have weight issues and health issues and pain issues that I am trying to learn to manage. Some days are better than others. I have to lose more weight than most people will ever weigh in their lives. I also have to work around pain issues and illnesses, stress and fatigue and a lack of financial stability. Sometimes I feel like I have a lot of emotional support. Some days I feel so alone. There are even days where I feel like I am fighting against resistance to me getting healthy. Still I have to keep going. I am not doing this to win a contest. I am not on a diet to lose a few pounds. I am making a lifetime change to get healthy and stay healthy for the rest of my life. It is a physical, mental, and emotional journey that takes everything I have. Sometimes it is fun and rewarding. Sometimes its just hard and painful and scary.
