My weight is something I’ve thought about every single day of my life since I was 13.
R.L. resides in the Atlanta area with some cool dudes: her husband, son and one crazy dog.? She was born and raised in the South.? She attended Georgia Southern University and moved to Washington, D.C. to intern in the United States Senate during the impeachment trial.? Falling in love with the city, she went to law school at American University, Washington College of Law.? By A Thread is R.L.?s second book, but is the first in a series of books.
I have always struggled with weight and now that Iam getting older it’s harder. And with being in the go all the time doesn’t help either.

I totally agree. I hardly get to see my kid because I work so it’s hard to choose to miss another hour from my son.

Hi, R.L.! I look forward to meeting you in March to commiserate together. I have been overweight all my life, and I’ve been a fit athlete. Some think those are mutually exclusive, but it’s just been true for me. I’ve learned some disheartening facts about how hard it is to lose weight and KEEP IT OFF. Our bodies really fight us to get back to our highest weight no matter how much we try, and it keeps getting harder with every loss-regain cycle. At this point I’m working to be as fit as possible and striving to feel less negative about my strong body. It’s so tough!

Its super hard Jennifer, especially when what used to work to get the pounds off doesn’t work anymore. I can’t wait to meet you too. You’re going to NASW too right?
I swear to god I have the same pair of fucking pants. I don’t think its us..its the closet. I am convinced its not really a closet, its a ginormous dryer and its set on HOT at some undisclosed time when we are at work. The closet shrunk my pants. The closet shrunk your pants too. Go and have fun. Fuck the pants and fuck the closet too!
R.L. Griffin says
My closet shrunk my shirts, bras and skirts too! My dresses are immune to the shrinkage, I’ve been wearing dresses for three weeks.
Funny you say that. The other name I was choosing from for this blog was whoshrunkmypants.com
I can relate to this so much. I went to target tonight and looked in the mirrror like… ” This can’t be me” really !? But it was and is. Did it stop me from buying M&M’s no.. But I do know what I NEED to do. It’s just i’m lazy. But I will start back up one of these mondays..
I can be disgusted with myself and continue to shove chocolate in my face. I don’t get it.
