At some point, when you start a blog with a specific topic as the focus...I believe you come to a crossroads. You have to decide to either stick to the topic, or let the blog morph into something more. Does a lapband blog stay a lapband blog or does it does the lapband just become PART of the story?
Some of you are also very good a privacy. Catherine, you come to mind.
And then there is me. I have always been an open book on my blog. And thankfully, this has never come back to bite me. And it is important to me that one of the things so many of you have told me that you love about me...is my honesty.
So my internal struggle has been...what do I share now? Because, and I know some of you will find this shocking, I have a tendency to share too much. And sometimes I think the world revolves around me. AND, I am trying to think of others. But here goes nothing, and here goes me trying to keep it short and sweet.
A few months back I posted a picture of Heather and Tracey showing off their guns. This was one your first introductions to Heather. She was/is our trainer. And she is now my girlfriend. Tracey knows. He knew as soon as I knew it was more than flirting. She makes me very happy. When I am with her, I know I am where I am supposed to be. I could go on and on about her, but simply put...when I am with Heather, I feel like I am home.
Now the questions that are racing through your head...I shall attempt to answer them:
Q: Have you lost your mind?
A: Not so much
Q: So...are you GAY?
A: I am in love with a woman. That makes me whatever you would like to label me.
Q: Have you ever been with a woman before?
A: I have kissed girls in my younger days...but never more than that. I have always known though that I could love either a man or woman. Love is love. Like I told Drazil, we fall in love with a person's soul, heart, and mind. The rest is all a bonus :)
Q: Does your family know?
A: Oh yea. For over a month now. When I told my mom she told me that she thought I had gone crazy. When my mom told my dad he said "Eh, I'm not surprised".
Q: Do your coworkers know?
Q: Are you just trying to get on Oprah?
A: Damnit! That's a good idea! Do you think it would work?
Q: Uh...is it hard dating someone who is 120 pounds of solid muscle and works out like a beast 5 days a week?
A: Not really. It makes me want to work harder myself.
Q: How is Tracey handling it?
A: As well as he can. He is kind and trying to adjust. He and Heather actually hugged it out the other day. He is a great man.
Q: Are your roomates in Chicago safe? Or should Sherry and Alexis wear turtle necks and sweatpants to sleep?
A: Well, they are both pretty hot...so no guarantees!
So there you have it folks! I am still me. Still Amy. I have felt like I have been keeping a secret from some of my closest 460 plus friends. Now I can get back to talking about my ladybits, saggy tits, throwing up and peeing at the same time, and all things that are important in life.
You can email me with any thoughts or questions. I love you guys!
