Once upon a time, this was my “omg I need to lose weight!” blog.
Then it was my “I need to get healthy, not necessarily lose weight” blog.
Now it’s more of a “Eh, I’m gonna eat those cheese sticks and bitch about things.” blog.
Here’s the story.
Let’s take it back to the beginning.
I graduated with an English degree in May of 2010 and promptly got to work using my $60,000 degree to its fullest potential — serving up lattes.
Around this time, I also decided that I probably need to lose weight in order to not feel like I’m going to pass out standing up all day. I decided I was going to get healthier. And since I was still in possession of above-mentioned degree, I decided to blog about it.
I went to my first Weight Watchers meeting and found out I was over 300lbs. Boo. I needed to do something about that. I want to wear cute dresses and I don’t want to pay a million dollars for them. Seriously. This is one of my motivators.
I hemmed and hawed and finally wrote my first post, complete with my weight for everyone to see.. No better way to drive traffic than to say, “Hey, come see how much this fat girl weighs!”
And with that, C’mon Fatso was born.
I’ve written a mini-manifesto on how it’s okay to love yourself at any weight.
I’ve discovered the absolute hardest thing about being fat.
I’ve declared my platonic-love for Ashley Fink from Glee.
If anything, my blog is honest. It’s not all rainbows and sunshine in my world. It’s often vulgar, actually. I think most people who set off on a huge (yep, pun intended) journey go through the same struggles as I do. I’m not afraid to be honest about my struggles and doubts and I hope I can inspire others to be honest with themselves (and the world), too.
I want to be a voice for the big beautiful people who want to be able to proclaim to the world that they love themselves at 400lbs, 300lbs, or what have you. I firmly believe that you can’t expect to love yourself at your goal weight if you can’t love yourself at your biggest.
So, basically, this is just my Sierra blog. Not my fat blog. Not my health blog. Not my anything blog. Just my Sierra blog. We can be friends.
