My name is Jess. I'm 25, 26, 27 (been here awhile!) and fat. Okay, now that we have the formalities out of the way....

I'm here because i'm sick of being fat. I want cute clothes. I want to turn heads. And i want to go ROCK CLIMBING! Don't ask me why I want to do this, but i want to do it as a fit 20 something.

I have a passion in reading. I would describe my tastes as indy (like the films), because they are often out of the mainstream and norm.

My other passion is my new cat Mao. She's an active and adorable maine coon. She also has feline leukemia. We had already decided we wanted her when we found out. So we took her anyway to give her a full life and loving home even if it is shorter than normal.

University debt says i have a BFA in theatre performance. And no, i'm not currently a waitress! Ha, score one for all actors! I'm a banker ..which better? I do get lots of holidays off, so i can't complain too much.

I'm totally open to making friends. As i've gotten older, it's been a lot harder for me to make friends. I just can't seem to stop thinking about how they SEE me. I want to get back to being my outgoing, sarcastic, funny self.

BTW, my background picture is 'Hooker Poker' by Natalia Fabia.

    This: "My name is Jess. I'm 25 and fat. Okay, now that we have the formalities out of the way...." made me laugh! My name is Kelly. And I'm fat too. Friends?!

    Hey there, I saw your post about eating on a schedule, and then thought I'd come explore your page. CONGRATULATIONS on your weight loss. You're looking F.I.N.E.!

    I see that you're interested in rock climbing. I just got into it last year. I highly recommend it! It has been instrumental in changing my life.

    Good luck with your goals! It looks like you've got it down. It's just a matter of patience and continued whittling away, now. emoticon
