Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I’m Alyssa. I’m 27 years old, I’m married to an awesome guy, I live in LA, and I work full-time as a social media specialist. I love food, cooking and writing. I’m also a second year grad student at Cal State Northridge, studying to get my MA in Mass Media Communication. I have two kitties, Lucia and Leo. Tweet me @lyssacurran or leave a comment – I’d love to hear from you! Anyways, let’s get on to the good stuff!
What the #@!* is the Double Chin Diary? And why does it have such a weird name? The Double Chin Diary is my virtual journal of my struggles to lose weight while navigating a world filled with delicious food.
The Double Chin Diary is not your mother’s weight loss blog. The DCD is a weight-loss blog full of ooey, gooey, crunchy, crispy weight loss humor and lots of yummy food. Why? Because fat is funny and food is fun. Yeah, yeah, we’re a country with ever-growing obesity rates, and there are more Burger Kings per block than street signs, and that’s serious stuff. But, if we’re going to deal with the serious stuff anyways, why not have a little fun with it?
Why is this blog called the Double Chin Diary? Well, because most people who want to lose weight are sporting the much-despised facial feature of a double chin. A double chin can actually be a very humorous addition to an otherwise nice portrait, if you’re willing to laugh about it rather than cry!
The Double Chin Diary is brought to you by a real-live, bonified, authentic, fat person. This fat person has struggled with her weight for her whole life, and figured, why not poke some jiggly fat fun at it? Join me as I face the struggles of weight loss with flair, flamboyance and my fork. Help me fight my food-loving demons and leave my love/hate relationship with Ben and Jerry behind. Let’s be in to win it and lose that double chin…the old fashioned way, one calorie at a time.
