...in search for some workout/support buddies!
So, here we go: My name is Patti, I'm 23 years old and a graduate from SAIC. I consider myself a very passionate, headstrong person and I'm desperately trying to lose weight. I have well over 100lbs to lose, and I'm ready for this lifestyle change. Despite my weight, I've always been a really active person. I love to dance, even if I look silly doing it. All my friends are on the thin side, and they don't necessarily care about what I'm doing. It doesn't bother me that much...ah hell...it does bother me a lot but I try to not let it get me down. I was fun and cool when I was just, "BBW Patti...so strong-minded and beauti--uh--smart and strong!" Now that I'm trying to lose this weight, I don't exist to them. It really, really, sucks. But I'm better off without them, right? I know that I'm doing this for myself and I don't need approval from anyone. But sometimes I forget and the hurt sinks in.
I would love to be able to connect with people who understand the physical and emotional changes I am going through, and not just through the screen. It sucks not being able to openly talk about my struggles with anyone really, and I'm hoping that someone out here on this wonderful website will want to connect with me. Please message or add me if you're also in search for someone to connect with.
Be careful what you set your heart upon - for it will surely be yours.
“Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.
Perhaps it is everywhere - on water and land.”
― Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
