Who Are You?

I’ve been blogging now for almost 18 months. I’ve loved the community and support the blogging community has shown me. I was thinking about you all this evening. We are all on our own journeys. I’m not actively trying to lose weight, but I’m still on my life journey.

I was wondering how you answer the question: Who Are You?

What defines you and makes you unique?

Let’s make it fun and define ourselves in just a few words.

I’ll start:

I am a:






That took me a few minutes to decide on just a few words to describe myself. Some of those adjectives and titles helped me on my weight loss journey. I wanted to be around for my husband and my children and they were primary motivators for me. I am independent, so I did my own thing to lose weight. I like to think about things, and I certainly thought a lot about weight loss. And my faith helped me get through really tough times.

    I am just a guy trying to figure it all out, and feeling very much like I never will. I know nothing. It could all be an illusion. I try, I strive, I fight, I seek. When it fits, I enjoy. When I can, I move. When I don’t move, I struggle.

    Oh, and the only time I think know truth, is when I look into the eyes of a dog.

    Contrarian, atheist, environmentalist, animal lover, fat-girl (not fat now, but forever psychologically). Painfully shy, emotionally damaged. Scientist.

    I always find these more difficult to do than they should be! It is surprisingly hard to describe myself.

    I’d say I am a Christian, Wife, Mother, Friend, Reader, Crafter, and Cook, if I described myself on a the basis of what I do most with my time. I’m a lot more than that, but those are probably the fundamentals that others would describe me by as well šŸ™‚

  11. Leah says:

    I am …
    ..a christian
    ..a wife
    ..a mother
    ..a friend

    I’m going to stop there. This was kind of fun! Thanks!

    I am a strong, determined (not-quite as) young (as I used to be) woman. I am a producer. I am a wife. I am an athlete. I am a runner. I am (will be on sunday) a triathlete. I am a shortcut chef. I am (trying to be more) spontaneous. I am the kind of person that lives for a new adventure. I am logical. I am creative. I am a thinker. I am a lover AND a fighter.

    Thought provoking! Love this!
