Hello there. You might be wondering to yourself, “Who this girl who thinks she is so funny and why is she fat?” Well, my friend, sit down and stay awhile. I’ve got some explaining to do.
My name is Sara, but I’m not exactly sure why. I’m going to go out on a limb and assume that it is because my parents liked that name when I was born. I was told that if I was born a boy I would have been named Ryan and that my dad didn’t really like the name Sara so much. He wanted me to be named Sherry. Wow, could you imagine my name as Sherry? I mean, yeah, I guess you could. If my name was Sherry I would be saying, “Wow, could you imagine me as a Sara?” Okay, well I’m not starting off very well here.
I’m in my late 20s and I am happily married to the love of my life, Daniel. We have been married a little over five years now. We have a cute little doggy named Marley that we adopted from the Humane Society and we just recently purchased our first home. And sometime in the near future plan on making human babies.
I had originally created this blog as a place where I could come and talk about weight loss and the journey I was on with it. I was at a point in life that I really was struggling with my weight and had just lost a pretty significant amount. But, as you know, life is ever changing. And losing weight is a struggle. So, I would make a blog post once in a while, do a few posts, lose interest, and then come back in another few months.
But I’ve realized my life doesn’t consist of a single “weight loss journey”. I have a small hunch that my entire life will be a series of weight loss journeys. And there is so much more to me than a number on a scale. I like baking. And trying new recipes. And renovating my new house. And making my own home décor. And shopping at Target. And going on adventures with my family. And living a life that isn’t fearful of how much I weigh and what people think of me.
So that’s what I want this space to be for me. I want to show you the outfit I’m wearing. I’d like to show you what I bought at Target. I want to share with you a new recipe I’ve fallen in love with. I want to show you how I’m decorating my house. I want to come here and share stories of everyday life. I want to inspire and be inspired. I want to spread love and positivity. I want to be unapologetically Sara.
All my life I’ve been known as the funny fat girl and I’ve been okay with that. But, that doesn’t define who I am. I am Sara and this is my life.
