About Me

Hello there!

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

3-23-19 I've been on swap-bot for 6 YEARS!!!!!!!!!🎉🎈🍾🥂🎉🎈🍾🥂🎉🎈🍾🥂🎉🎈🍾🥂🎉🎈🍾🥂🎉🎈🍾🥂🎉🎈🍾🥂🎉🎈🍾🥂🎉🎈🍾🥂🎉🎈

4-10-19 behind on ratings [AGAIN -.-]... Will have more time this weekend to get them done! Thanks for your patience ^^

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!

STUFF I LOVE [wish list ^^]

If it's a package swap, I'm really into...

-anything UNICORN-themed!

-ANYTHING from Lush Cosmetics

-Kawaii anything. Especially plushies and letter sets!

If the swap has a food theme / option...

-weird-flavored nut butters why stop at simple peanut butter??

-pumpkin spice anything

-anything you can find at Trader Joe's [lol]

-Vegan / plant-based food items, especially CHOCOLATE!

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: What is going on?! Three now? Three letters in a row not written on a train. This last one I could even READ. I would like to try making clay charms but I don't like the idea of buying a ton of clay. Perhaps if it was say limited. This is what you can make with just these clays! Etc. I dunno. As far as another swap, I was thinking pen swap too but that almost would be best as private swap. But sticker swap, hmm. Yep! Going to go start a couple now!
