My Scale

So this is my blog.


This is my diary...Diary of a Fat Chick. Soon to be Former Fat Chick, I hope.

I've made up my mind that I'm going to try to get weight loss surgery. By that, I'm going to apply for the procedure and hopefully I will get approved. This blog is to chronicle the start of my journey from fat chick to former fat chick and everything that happens in between.

I warn you. This is going to be raw. I don't believe in bloggers who claim to put themselves out there via their writings only to read that 99.9999% of the journalings are all sunshine and roses. Seriously?!?! No one believes that. If you're going to blog about your life, don't censor yourself and leave out the 'ugly'. I think I owe it to myself to be honest on here. If not, then what's the point?! So I can paint some shiny happy portrait of my life and try to make others believe I'm as happy go lucky as they wish they could be?!? Nope. Not gonna happen. Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not a debbie-downer 100% of the time either. I'd like to consider myself a fairly 'happy' person who basically has an optimisic point of view, but my life is my life and I make no excuses for it, and I'll be damned if I'm going to trick you into thinking my life is FABULOUS 100% of the time.

So there.



  1. I agree. And people love the honesty...bc it helps them feel normal. normal as we can feel!
