Sister Can’t Resist Her…Red Beans and Rice Didn’t Miss Her.
What?!? You don’t know that song? Google it.
It’s a Classic.
So, I am going to talk to you a little bit about my sister, whom I can’t resist.
I gave you guys a little back story about her in this post: Sister Memories.
It was a good one.
She is a good one.
Here is the current story:
Three years ago when I started ItSuxToBeFat, I was supposed to have a partner. This was going to be “our” blog where we share “our” weight loss story. I had lost 80 pounds, give or take and she was in the beginning stages of her weight loss journey. It was going to be great. I could speak to those people who wanted to see someone who has lost weight while she would share her current weight loss story with all of you.
We were going to share our journey to getting back to this size:
Well, it was a good thought.
As the blog began to take shape, Katherine came to the realization that she was not ready to open herself up to the world and share her innermost thoughts and feelings.
We are very different.
I am an open book while she is more reserved. In birth order, she is the middle child while I am the youngest. VERY different personalities! But, we tend to complement one another in a very good way!
So, she decided it would be best for her not to be a part of ItSuxToBeFat…
I always thought one day she would change her mind.
I didn’t know when it would be but I patiently waited.
I always saw us doing this together. “Our” little weight loss blog.
The years have gone by. People actually started reading my journey. I couldn’t believe there were people out there who gave a crap about what I thought and how I felt but here you are. Giving a crap!
I continue to write, my good and bad, my ups and downs. Alone.
Well, the time has come. She decided she is ready. She is ready to take on this adventure with us. She wants to be a part of this little blog world.
So, with open arms and such anticipation of her joining us, I want you to welcome my sister, Katherine.
I will let her introduce herself later but I wanted you to know who this “new person” is that will start writing to you.
Be kind to her. She is starting her journey and will
probably definitely experience ups and downs. She will learn, she will grow, she will lose weight and gain some. However, she will not quit. This is it. Her journey is starting and I am so THANKFUL that she has decided to share it with you!
Welcome, Kath. I am so glad you decided to be here!
