Now, this is a story all about how my life got flipped-turned upside down...
Oh wait. That's not me. I mean it kinda is, but I don't have a theme song and I am not "DJ Jazzy Jess" except when I am rapping, which actually happens a lot...
So I am assuming you know my name is Jess. It's in big letters over ---------> there. Along with my face. But here is a little more about me and what you can expect here on my blog :D
I like timelines!
1993- learned how to write and started writing in my first journal.
2003- discovered blogging and started my first live journal
2005- graduated high school at 200 lbs.
2006- started trying to lose weight.
2007- did HCG, failed
2008- tried running, nope
2009- tried to lose weight to fit in my wedding dress. hahaha no
2010- reached an all time high of 285 lbs
2010- did Weight Watchers, failed
2011- did Weight Watchers, failed
2012- did Weight Watchers, failed
2013- realized weight watchers isn't for me (duh)
2014- realized that self love and acceptance is way more important than the number on the scale
Along the way I lost 60 lbs, gained 20 back, and have been on the road to recovery for my eating disorder.
That's a bit about my journey, but that doesn't tell you much about me at all. So here are some fun facts.
I have an obsession with Rhinos.
I love to read.
I am a big nerd. Like I play D&D.
I have been married since Nov 2010 to my best friend who is also a huge nerd, and doesn't mind having rhinos all over our house.
I have a deep personal relationship with cake. At the moment, its long distance.
I love the fall.
I have a tattoo on my foot of a Koi fish that I got when I was 18. I want many many more...
I don't believe reading random facts about me means you know me, but since I am 100% me here, I hope that you stick around and get to know me. We could be besties. For real, I met my best friend through my blog.
