dating again [Jul. 22nd, 2004|08:48 am]
Men and Women who are Larger than Life
[mood |happyhappy]

lord, who'd have guessed? i'm going to be dating -- really and truly, not just a casual "let's have coffee and never talk to each other again."

i have a couple of photos that are kinda cute. they show me in a good light, i think, and don't show my size. last night, my potential beau asked me by email to quickly take some new photos for him. eek! i took a couple of them and one definitely shows i'm no small woman. i sent them with a little prayer, figuring he's got to see me for who i am. wow, was i nervous!

"thank you for the gift of your beauty," he wrote back.


what's your "scared then melts" story?

p.s. i'll let you know how it goes.

We haven't spoken in a while! I just thought I'd pop in and say hello and find out how you guys are doing. SO, anything interesting going on? I have actually been considering becoming a Plus Sized model when I get older. I have always thought modeling was beautiful, but, as you know they are almost ALL skinny stick women, and it isn't very incouraging. I was inspired by MTV of all places, there was a show, and there was a plus sized model on there, and I thought to myself "I could do that". I could work for Mia Tyler. I think she is amazing, and even prettier than her sister, Liv.=) Thats what Ive been throwing around lately.
Have a great day,

hey girls....i just need to vent....my boyfriend and i made it offical last friday even tho he assumed we were together before that, for like 2 weeks...but anyway, i feel so immature bc this is upsetting me and we have been together for under a month, but its like before we made it official he called me all the time, we would talk for ours, he immed me online constantly, but after we made it official that all stopped. he says hes really busy at work, which i understand and that he is working for his dad all hours of the night, but its totally bothering me that we havent talked since like last weekend.

im bumming =(

i really like him, but i dont know what to do anymore...i dont wanna break up bc i feel like we are awesome together, but i cant deal with this crap =(

So Tired... [Jun. 8th, 2004|02:57 pm]
Men and Women who are Larger than Life
I'm about to whine for a short bit, so move on or be prepared.

I am so tired of being so overweight. I'm 5'7 and hover between 250 and 260 pounds. I've been hovering there for years, though oddly, about a year ago I was about to have to change sizes from a 22 to a 24 -- then I went down and can comfortably wear a 20, even in jeans as long as the pants have a relaxed thigh.

I am tired of being uncomfortable all the time; it always amazes me, when I lift my belly how much tension it releases from my entire upper body. I remember I used to love being in the water for that reason -- fat floats -- but will not go near a bathing suit. I don't even own one.

I am tired of being tired. I never seem to have the energy to do any of the things that are really important to me. I do what I have to and no more.

My God, I don't even go to the doctor for a regular exam because I know she's going to lecture me about my weight.

I want to excercise. I have a lovely Windsor Pilates DVD that really isn't difficult at all. But I won't do it with witnesses in the house, and with a husband, two teenagers, and a housemate, it's hard to find 30 minutes of solitude.

I want to have more control over what I eat. But I LOVE good food. Control is so very difficult for me.

My husband wants to help me, and would if I'd let him. But he doesn't do anything with grace or tact. One word out of his mouth and he'd be on my BAD list.

I feel like I'm caught in some terrible loop and can't get out of it.

I'm so tired...

[/end of whine]

messenger bags [May. 25th, 2004|07:35 am]
Men and Women who are Larger than Life
[mood |happyhappy]

i dunno about you, but i love the look of messenger bags. slung across the body and low on the hip, they're easy on the eyes and easier on the body. problem is that my boobs get in the way and the bags always hang wrong on me, ending up looking and feeling absurd. well, on hip_domestics someone posted this link to instructions for making one! thought i'd pass it along to all you hipsters of size.
