I'm not dead yet!

Love is absolutely incredibly wonderful....for the first three months. Then life starts happening, money gets tight, someone loses a job or gets a pay cut or unexpected expenses come up. These situations are the true test of love, respect and admiration. How can you save you love some one if you're not willing to pony up and do what's needed. I'm lucky enough to have a partner who recognized how much we were struggling and did something about it....after some time.

Although we each have our good intentions, our dreams and ambitious it has been a challenge to find ways to enhance and not hinder each other at times. It's been at the very least trying on both our patiences. Even though we are still far from stable, it's on the horizon.

 I've been MIA from Chubby Girl In the World for too long. For a while I was starting to think nothing I wrote mattered, that no one really paid attention to my little corner of the internet and then I remembered that as much as I love my readers I didn't start this blog for anyone else's sanity but my own.

 My life got so hectic that I forgot this blog was my outlet into the wider world, some people paint, some people play music, I write. It's funny how we sometimes forget our own method of catharsis.
I was depressed, frustrated, feeling ineffective and basically just run down. I didn't want any of you to think I had given up on you, thank you for reaching out and making sure I was okay, rest assured CGINTW is in effect and so legitamate we cannot be stopped.

  1. I'm glad you're back :) I was wondering what happened to your blog.

    Money is tight all over and this country isn't out of the woods yet. I wish you and your man the best of luck--I know good intentions don't always save relationships, but we have to try, right?

    Hang in there and keep writing.

Overcoming the "I'm too fat for this."

I have not been posting lately due to many reasons, I'm back in school, I'm working full time again and I've been stuck in a depressive cycle in which I overeat, condemn myself for being a glutton tell myself I'll never amount to anything and then overeat again to make myself feel better. Wow, that sound really crazy when I say it like that. But so many women I know have told me the go through exactly the same thing. We lie awake at night thinking about all the terrible things we did to our bodies that day. I had McDonalds and Taco Bell all in the same day; word to the wise don't do this.

Tomorrow I have to go out networking, normally this is a chance for me to increase our connections or strengthen ones we already have and hopefully broker us more deals in the process but really it's about relationship building and frankly I've been pretty terrible at it lately. Why has my performance decreased so drastically? Because I don't think I deserve to be ther…

Plus Size Business Casual- How to do it right!

Becoming a Fashion Grown up-Chubby Girl In the World Style

Ok, I'll admit it I'm getting old, on Dec. 7th of this year I will be 29! (Silent freak out). What's worse is I'm now a grown up with an early not mid-twenties closet. I feel like I've outgrown the major retailers and need to move on, I'm ready for a more mature fashion relationship but I have fashion issues.
 My key fashion issues:

Short leg, longer torsoBottom heavy in all the wrong placeswhat I call "marshmallow syndrome"- If clothes are too tight, it looks like I'm a sausage, if too loose they not shape at all. So does any of this sound familiar? Here's the advice that has actually worked for me over the years and if I had unlimited funds this is the wardrobe I would create, I' a size 28 which is considered "super sized" so for the sake of argument I'll include designers that stop at size 26 but note them with an asterisk*. Nothing is worse than reading a that one page of Marie Claire dedicated to Plus fashion and realizin…
