The long story:
Former/current fat girl here. Have weighed as much as 220, and as little as 170 since age 18. 165 is my mythical "ideal number". After being chunky my whole life, I began running in 2009. I got serious after it in the summer of 2010, and started to run more, watch what I eat, and have lost around 25 pounds, with 20 more to go.
This blog aims to capture my adventues in running, Disney, food, and life. I promise to be honest, especially about the number on the scale. Weight is not equal to worth, and even though I wholeheartedly believe that, I still struggle with that concept. Thanks for joining me!
