Update time! I really haven’t been watching intake other than the fact that I don’t eat lunch at school anymore. (Not only is it disgusting but the healthy options are all covered in non-healthy things… anyway, gonna stay off that little soap box.) There’s a lot of things coming on very quickly. Senior play auditions are actually TOMORROW and I’m a second semester senior which essentially means that nothing else is happening with school, yet I’m still applying to colleges and things… I don’t know, many things are tackling me or jockeying for position so I wonder if I’ll have a hard time regulating food intake and such. I have such a hard time anyway with that…
I don’t know. This blog probably doesn’t make any sense right now but I’m a little punch drunk from today. I think I’ll sleep now.
I didn’t get a chance to read it yet because I’m leaving for work in a few minutes, but it seems relevant.
It has been over six months since my first post here… I’d like to remedy that. Hoping to hop back on the wagon, this time for realsies.
So here’s a blog about me!
My name is Zoë. I’m eighteen years old and I am body positive. I’m on the home stretch of high school, something both exciting and frightening to me. I’m an NCGSE alum, and proud of it!
Fot the majority if my life I’ve “struggled” with my weight, though I’m not sure struggled is the right word. Backstory: I distinctly remember being little and dieting/exercising with my mom. At one point, we were heading home and she was calculating how much Richard Simmons she would have to do to work off the cookie she had eaten at lunch, and I looked over to her for a moment. “I don’t want tk do Richard Simmons anymore. I’m just fine with the way I look.” I understand now that part of me was just being a lazy ten-year-old, but now I understand the importance of loving your body as much as I can. I have loved being fat! I’m squishy and comfortable to lie on. I’m curvy and generous in my curves, and I’m happy like this. My body is beautiful.
But as of late I have felt many problems stemming from my largeness. My knees hurt after sitting down for too long, some of my limbs go numb from too much pressure from other body parts, and I get cranky really easily. For the most part, right now I’m sad. I want to help remedy that with more exercise and better food choices, staying body positive all the while.
Blogging will hopefully help through this journey to health!
