A Little About Myself---A Survey of Sorts

1. Regardless of what stage you are in - in your weight loss, get healthy journey – do you still consider yourself “fat”? Was there a point when you stopped feeling that way?

I AM fat and even when I lost 70 pounds, I never realized that I wasn't "fat" anymore. I guess part of that was being in the Navy and being at the very top of the weight standard. I am looking forward to being more supportive and appreciative of myself this time around.

2. Tell us about your first kiss.

And this one time... at band camp....ha. But for real. I was a counselor. Yeah, 19 years old. It was a pity kiss. I was smitten until the next day when I found out the guys was bisexual and then I was grossed out (only because I got all these ideas of where his mouth had been and I didn't want to be part of that.) That's pretty much it. Not very special.
3. Describe your parenting style (either current or what you hope to do or what you would do if you ever had kids)?
I am hoping I will be the loving disciplinarian. I am afraid that I will end up being the iron fist with no capacity to emotionally support my children (like my dad). However, I am excited to have kids in the next couple years and find my way!

4. How would your best friend describe you?


5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in blog land and in real life.

For work, I make appointments for interviews and plan trips to track down my subjects and sources. I end up going onto the Marine base at least twice a week and when I'm not directly involved in work, I'm checking out the eye candy! haha Then sometimes I meet James for lunch, and he is nice eye candy too. :-) At home, I watch TV shows with James, such as Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy!, The Biggest Loser, and Vampire Diaries, and I talk to the doggies. I go to church choir rehearsal on Wednesday nights and go to church with James on Sundays. I hang out with the old people after church, and I love it! On Saturdays, James and I like to go to the Palm Springs area to get a taste of civilization and normalcy. It's a good time. That's kind of the normal


  1. I forgot to mention that the survey is meant to be copied and pasted into your own blogs where you can answer the questions yourselves so we can all get to know each other! I stole this from somebody... but I can't remember who.
