Welcome to The Truth About Fat Chicks. Ok - So maybe it is just this particular fat chick I am telling the truth about. But I do know a good bit about fat chicks having been one for the better part of the past 40 years.
Here are some truths about me.
I am a 39 year old mother, wife, lover, artist, free spirit, infertile woman, daily meditator (not a word, I know), practitioner of creative visualization, physical and sexual abuse survivor, daughter, sister, funny girl, recently lap-banded girl and still....a fat chick.
I will always be a fat chick at heart, no matter what I weigh. It is just part of who I am. It is what built this fabulous of self deprecating humor that I have. You know - Make fun of myself before anyone else can beat me to the punch.
I love to read - and write - hence the blog. Though one of my biggest problems is that I write like I talk. EeeekkK!
I am originally from the south - Bogalusa, Louisiana. That right there is enough to make anyone insane, funny and a generally well rounded individual. I have lived in New Jersey, Connecticut, Manhattan and Upstate NY, where I currently reside. After 22 years of living away from home, I still have a thick southern accent. I just can't shake it!
I am lucky enough to have an amazing 18 month old daughter, Lilly. I never thought I could love anyone as much as I love her. I thought to myself tonight as I was wiping her nose - I am so lucky to be picking this angels nose for her. Strange I know - But it is true.
This blog will be a lot of things. A place I can post my private thoughts. A place where I can tell you about my life. A place I can tell you what it is like to be a fat chick. A place where I can post different things about other fat chicks. A place where I can talk openly and honestly about anything and everything. If you are shy, do not like vulgar language, do not like the beautiful (and occasional ugly) truth about life - this might not be the place for you. I have a habit of being cynical, vulgar, funny, bitchy, brutally honest and raunchy.
I hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I enjoy writing it.
