Meet the Chunky Dunkers!
Chunky for now at least....
I live in the Knoxville area of Tennessee. I have not always been overweight, but since graduating high school the pounds have started creeping on. Things have gotten worse in the past 3 years. I can blame the stress I've been under from work and going back to school, but I also could have chosen to do things other than eat my stress. But what's done is done, and we can't un-ring the bell.
When I'm not blogging, I like to read, watch movies, and make things. Those things I make include food items and various crafts. I love to cook (check out the Recipes section for more), and I like to feed people. I also like to crochet and I'm getting into loom knitting. I'll add more if I think there's something else to tell.
I'm Awesome. That is all....
Just kidding (but I really am). I'm a newlywed (how long can one say that?) My husband and I were married on 10.10.10 in Knoxville, TN. We currently reside in Jacksonville, FL (Florida's murder capital. lovely, right?) because my husband, Mitch, is in the United States Navy. I've not always been overweight, bigger than other girls, sure...but I saw no appeal in being a size 00, know what I mean. I started high school around 115 lbs and graduated somewhere close to 130, I still loved myself. During college and the subsequent years I packed on the pounds...80 of them to be exact. I still love myself...but only with clothes on. I avoid mirrors in the bathroom (which isn't easy, there are two GIANT ones on either wall facing the glass shower). I love eating out. Mainly because I HATE doing dishes. Eating out is so much easier.
When I'm not spilling my guts over here at the blog, I have several other blogs I run (http://thelifeofanetswife.blogspot.com & http://anchoredbyandersonphotography.blogspot.com) as well as breaking into the photography scene here in Jacksonville, I'm a supportive wife and the budgeter of the family and momma to 3 precious doglets; Mojo and Tipsy-2 year old boston terriers and Ace-an almost 1 year old Great Dane.
