I’m a 27 year old princess stuck in a mans world.
My career path has led me to public safety and it’s been less than helpful in my efforts to stop being the fat girl. Currently I work as a 9-1-1 dispatcher which may be one of the most stressful jobs on the planet. Prior to, I spent a few years as an emergency medical technician for several different suburban ambulance services. I’ve met the best friends anyone could ask for along the way. One of those friends (who I refer to as my heterosexual life partner) introduced me to my wonderful fiancé.
We’re already like an old married couple. Grocery shopping’s a big date night. We go to bed early. We clean the house together. Wii bowling gets a little competitive. Oh, and thanks to our work schedules most of the time we spend together is while we are asleep. People tell me this is why are relationship will last, haha.
We’re getting married in 2013, probably in September. My goal is to not wear a plus sized wedding dress. I’ve lost and gained weight more times than I can count since puberty. I’m tired of my body getting in the way of my life. Here’s to this journal keeping me accountable and making this time be the time that sticks.
