I have been remiss...

Slacking is a better way of describing it. Seven months and I haven't written a single word.

For an aspiring writer, that is bad news. The truth is... I am an addict. Reading other people's blogs, playing Bejeweled, and Facebooking. I realized the other day that I totally need to put my own thoughts and ideas onto paper.

I've been reading a lot of blogs from gorgeous, beautiful, curvacious women and they have made me realize something: I need to celebrate what I look like instead of hiding what I look like. I used to be so cute and free (I mean, CHECK ME OUT sporting that bikini in 1980!) and lately I've been ashamed because I have gained 60 pounds and think everyone is looking at me like I'm "that girl who can't stick to anything or stay fit."

One of my friends had gastric bypass surgery last year and has lost over 160 pounds. Incredible, I know. But she has never been ashamed about her appearance even when she weighed more than 300 pounds. I want to learn from her, I want to BE her.

I don't know where my mojo went, but I need to get it back. DESPERATELY.

So, I'm going to start writing some more on my blog. Hopefully someone will start reading it and relate to what I have to say. I am going to talk about all sorts of stuff - general day to day musings, celebrities, self esteem... it's a no-holds-barred kinda blog.
