Who’s That Fat Girl?

“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.” – Confucius

Courtney here, pleased to make your acquaintance!

I’m just your average 30-something “old maid” living life as a “fat girl” professional in Greenville, SC.  Wait…you’re fat??  Yep…and I have struggled with it my whole life.  I finally realized that while I want to lose some weight for my health…I don’t want to be skinny and I don’t want to look like every other woman…it’s quite refreshing.

So I started this blog…to talk about the journey and to open up about things people don’t think you should talk about.  Ooooooo it’s bad to be FAT…people don’t like you or men don’t want to date you.  Screw that…I haven’t had any problems in those departments.  (Except the same problems every woman has)

I’ll blog about men, Fat Girl struggles, hilarious stories, recipes I find, my crazy ass family, my views, my life, SOME FATshion and really anything that moves me in that moment.  I’ll try to keep it clean for the grandparents but I really want this to be an honest dictation of my thoughts and experiences.  I hope you can appreciate that!

Things you might need to know about me…

  • I will NEVER be skinny…I am okay with that.  My goal is to just get under 200 which will still keep me in Fat Girl territory.  🙂
  • I am outgoing with a sharp tongue.  People are usually drawn to my sarcastic humor and that is usually the reason we don’t stay friends long.  Think you can stand it?  Bring it on!
  • Both of my parents battle Cancer…to learn more visit my cancer page.
  • I’m a veteran of the US Army and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
  • My family is unusual…to say the least.  There is nothing, and I do mean NOTHING, I won’t share with my parents.
  • I’m an Executive Recruiter for a Professional Staffing Company in Greenville.  Views on this page are my own and not representative of my company and/or their views.
  • I love people and I SINCERELY LOVE my friends!
  • Before you ask, I’m not married, I don’t have kids and YES I have a cat.  🙂

I am pretty open, pretty quirky and diverse.  Daddy’s girl and dang I just realized this is starting to sound like a personal ad….so….

Nice to meet you, if you need to know anything else…just ask!


“I firmly believe that what makes you sexy and beautiful is not the size of your body or the color lipstick you have on. What really makes you sexy is what you project, your confidence, and your self awareness, having a great sense of humor and being really smart.”
