I've updated my new website with all the deleted scenes from The Life of Anna. While you're there, feel free to look around, especially at the store! There's some pretty cool stuff there. http://www.marissahoneycutt.com
I'm starting a newsletter, of sorts. You can sign up at my site from any page. Just scroll down to the bottom and fill out your name and email.
I want to keep in touch with y'all and love interacting with you. But I have trouble coming up with ideas of posting things. What would you like to learn/see/read/etc.? Sometimes I think "Noone wants to see more pictures of my cats" but maybe you do? I don't know.
Those three words are incredibly hard to say about myself. My husband calls me beautiful.
My friends call me beautiful. But me? I call myself ugly. Fat. Blech.
Why? Why do I hate my body? Because I've been taught to hate it. Because we, as American girls-grown-into-women have been taught that we need to be a size 0 to be beautiful and happy. Or if not a size 0, then we need to diet and be a healthy size 6 or 8.
Then there are the "plus size models." Now, I appreciate this new found love of bigger girls, but even still, they're what? Size 12? maybe 14? They still have thin legs! (I hold a lot of my weight in my legs, so that's one of my sensitive areas. I am genetically predisposed to cankles!) The plus size stores start at size 12, which is great! Don't get me wrong. But I'm not size 12.
Right now, I'm a size 22. I weigh about 270 pounds. Not too long ago, I was closer to a 14/16/ and weight closer to 200. I've gained about 70 pounds since last October. Before that, I'd lost a lot of weight, but not for a good reason. And mentally? I was messed up. I suffer from depression and my meds were messed up for most of 2014. Even ended up in a mental hospital ...er, excuse me, a "Behavioral Health Facility" after a bad reaction to a new med made me suicidal. Don't you just love the PC versions of words?
If the pharmaceutical companies couldn't advertise on US TV, there would be 3/4 less commercials. Granted, I pretty much only watch the news, the History Channel, the Travel Channel and American Heroes Channel. Plus an occasional old movie on TCM. But man! almost every commercial is for some drug! And they're so long!!!!
For those of you in the US, you might not know that in some countries it's illegal to advertise to kids and to advertise pharmaceuticals. Wouldn't that be nice here?
What's your favorite commercial? Have you ever gone onto YouTube to check out commercials from when you were a kid?
