I don't feel the same way about my body that other (not all) overweight women do. I've never been the kind of woman who hated herself for being fat. I love my body. I feel sexy and lush. I love my curves. I love my breasts. My hips. My bottom. My thighs. I never turn off the lights when I have sex. I spend as much of the day as I can in as little clothing as possible. I own SO MUCH LINGERIE!
It helps that I'm married to a man who has always found me incredibly sexy. I've probably gained close to 100 pounds since we started dating 21 years ago and HE NEVER NOTICED. He seriously never even noticed.
Maybe because he's always like, "Push those boobs back in my face!"
So why am I trying to lose weight? I know you're all clamoring to know!
Health. I'll get into this more in my first real entry.
I'm supposed to be introducing myself here. AHEM!
I'm 40. Married. No children. I think I'm a dink? Double income. No kids. I've been with my husband for 21 years (as of Mar 2).
I've never been thin. Although I was as a teen. I was a regular normal sized teenager but I didn't know it because I was raised by a woman (my mom) whom I love but she was/is an OCD anorexic.
If there ever was a recipe for raising overweight children, that was it. How about 3 overweight children and 1 chubby one. 2 of my siblings and my father have diabetes. 1 of my brothers has had gastric bypass.
So here I am at 40. Changing my entire life. It's scary and wonderful.
