Most major department stores place their large women’s departments far away from any windows.  Some hide the fat girls down in the basement. Seriously.  Farthest corner on the bottom floor, that’s where I have to go to find clothes.

My goal for the new year is to climb out of the basement!

I’ve joined with some friends on a mission to make some healthy lifestyle changes.  Yes, I want to wear smaller clothes and look better in them, but I’d also like to have more energy and a lower BMI.  My immediate goal, as some of you have heard before, is to lose 10% of my body weight.  I won’t be punishing myself with any weird crash diets, as I know that the key is “Eat Less. Exercise More.”  Sounds simple, but it is REALLY hard to put into practice.
