About Me

Hello there!

You have stumbled upon the profile of a true swap-bot addict!!!

9/1/2020 All caught up on ratings! :)

ZAZZLE is the site where I make all my custom addy labels, stickers, swap cards, and more! SO many swappers have asked me how I get my stuff made. If you wanna check it out, please use my Zazzle referral below! :)

Motivate me!

So over the years I've struggled with my weight, due to bad eating habits and being a couch potato that never exercised. Towards the end of high school I decided to make a change, and I'm never looking back.

MY STORY:

At my heaviest I weighed 230 lbs... Even at 5' 11", that was considered obese. I had experienced cycles of binge-eating followed by cutting off food - a terrible cycle. I was at dangerous health risks before entering high school. Gym kicked my butt, and I had dropped down to 200 lbs by [around] sophomore year.

Junior/senior year was when I decided to join a local gym, and I began seriously working hard on my weight. I got down to around 180-190 lbs post-high school.

Entering my freshman year in college, I had so much coursework and stress and I fell back into my old habits. The stress would make me want to eat, and then I would feel guilty about what I was eating and then end up eating more. I was definitely a binge-eater. Still between 180 and 190 lbs, I was overweight.

After leaving a degree that left me feeling overworked, underappreciated, and unsatisfied, I finally found a field of study I really loved. Sure there was still stress and all... But liking what you do makes things a lot better. I had more time to work on my body and health as well, and worked my way down to 170 lbs - a normal BMI!

Now, in 2016, I have reached 160 lbs, with my goal body weight in the near future! My blood pressure has gone down as well as my resting heart rate. I am able to participate in athletic activities I never used to be able to.

I have come so far, and it hasn't been easy. Every day I learn to love my body and become more mindful of my eating. I am working on indulging in foods I love without the guilt - a practice of meditation. I look forward to what the future holds for me, and I refuse to give up That's my story so far :)

Never give up on what matters most to you!

ATCs

I love to draw! ATCs are a great way to use my creativity in a swap-able, share-able way(:

I prefer to hand-draw my ATCs because it is my preferred medium and keeps postage reasonable.

Some of my favorite media when creating ATCs or other art works are:

  • Prismacolor colored pencil
  • mixed media
  • pencil
  • Faber Castell Pitt Pen

I love YOUR ART!!!

Hobbies ETC

In my spare time I enjoy reading a TON. [A TON.] I have an obsession with Goodreads - if you want to add me here is the link to my profile :) There are ALWAYS more than 50 books on my "currently reading" and WAY to many on my "to-read" :P

An ACTUAL gif of me trying to find a book in my collection ^

I really enjoy snailmail obviously and postcrossing is my favorite :)

I also occasionally enjoy videogames, and I play multiple genres / multiple platforms. 3DS/Wii/WiiU/Xbox/PC you name it!

My music taste? ECLECTIC as can be... I literally listen to any and all.

Some of my all-time favorites are Animal Crossing [all of them] and Sims 3.

Comment: I love fall too. Snuggling into a blanket is the best. Family here is doing fine. We are staying isolated, working on home tasks and fun. I have been diamond painting again. I started doing it in 2015 when it wasn't well known and burned myself out a bit on it. Now, there are so many more options! I still have been gaming as well but I like doing both. Grouping queues are not so bad when diamond painting. What kind of art/crafts do you like to do?
