Here I am...sitting in my grandma's house in Japan.
We got here last night after a day full of flying (on my birthday).
I am going to take tons of pictures and post as often as possible. But until then, I will direct you to read one of my old posts about how "BIG" I am in Japan
In the (less than 24) hours that I have been here, I have already been lectured about how I should lose weight "for my health". Though I know the message is given to me in kindness, it bugs me because I know that there is a lot more to it than worry about my "health".
I would like to lose a few pounds, but overall, I am so okay with who I am... I inherited the Irish genes passed down from generations of "thick, sturdy women" on my biological-fathers side, I have a big butt (which my husband loves), I love hearty Persian food (thanks to being raised by my Persian dad) and as Popeye would say
"I am, who I am"
That's all that matters, and I need to remember that.
