Getting to Know Me via Text... REALLY!

Okay, don't get me wrong, I like to text just as much as the next social butterfly... But what is up with men texting women to get to know them?

I met a gentleman last evening, while I was out running an errand. He asked if he could have my number, and he seemed nice enough, so I gave it to him. He texted me an hour later asking for a picture. I thought "no big deal, my pictures are all over Facebook, Instagram and Twitter", so I sent it to him. He has been texting me since we met. I finally stopped responding to him!

What 39 year old man uses text messaging to get to know a woman they are interested in!?! Oh that's right the other gentleman that I am causal friends with, that's in his 40's, and he likes to text too... I am about to stop talking to both of them to be honest with you!

I am on a key board all day at work, and then I'm on my laptop when I come home in the evening working my business, who wants to sit and text all day! Give me a break! What has happened to the intimacy of a telephone conversation? We almost don't know what each other sounds like anymore because everything spoken is now via text message...

When someone says "Talk to you later", don't they really mean "Text you later"? Because you haven't talked to me yet! To me texting should be done in those situations where you really can't talk at that moment. But, not if you are a man, and you are sitting at home chilling, and trying to text me all night... Like Tamara says "Gettcha Life!!!".

Especially, you are looking to get to know me? It makes me wonder what these men have to hid. Is there a wife/girlfriend/boyfriend in the house? Hmmmm!! I mean really!! What's up?? LOL!! I know, I got you with the whole "boyfriend" thing, but you just don't know these days. What are people trying to hide. And since when did it become okay to accept bare minimums from men?

I remember I was getting so excited about this guy I was talking to, and every time my phone would ding, I was hoping it was a text message from him... Really Kellee!?! I mean WHO DOES THAT!?! Kellee, that's who. LOL! And when it wasn't him, I would get so irritated with whoever it was. Like it was their fault that my boo wasn't texting me... LOL! Thank You Lord for maturing me!

Moral of this story is... Men, pick up the phone and call the lady you are interested in... Ladies, make these men give you what you want, and stop settling for a text...

Ps: Both of the above men I was talking about are Caucasian.. You see, men being lazy comes in ALL races! LOL!

 Be Good.. Live Life.. And Above all else... Be Unusual!

One Year of Prep - Day Five

Good Evening Peeps,

Wow, has it been five days already? I kind of had a rough weekend you guys. I have been eating everything in sight. I had an extremely boring weekend, and apparently that's all I can think to do. :-(

I didn't have much going on this weekend; I had a meeting yesterday morning which didn't last very long. And the remainder of the day I laid in bed watching television and eating. Who does that!?! Oh, I do.. That's who!

I had great intentions, I just didn't follow through. So, losing weight is one of my goals this year. I would like to lose about 70lbs. So starting tomorrow, I am making a commitment to myself, all of you, and God to only eat when I am physically hungry.

If I don't get this eating thing under control now, I am going to be 300lbs before I know it. No offense to anyone reading this, and weighs that much. But for me and my life, the life God called me to live - being that big is a no go.

I actually want to be skinny. About 135lbs…

Why Do We Settle for Less...

"I live in quiet desperation every day of my life. Wishing that I could be rescued from this misery I call life. If feels like no one understands me. Not my family, not my friends, not anyone.

I feel like I am trapped in my life, and I can't break free. I have dreams and aspirations, and they all feel like they are ten thousand miles away. I just don't know what to do. I'm currently in a relationship that is far beneath what I deserve, but yet I can't live without him. And it doesn't really matter, because if it wasn't him, it would be someone else.

It's been that way my entire life. Giving all of myself to a man, and getting nothing in return. Giving my body, giving my time, and anything else that is asked of me. At the end of the relationship, when all of my sacrifice has gone unappreciated, I am left with another injury to my soul.

Same story... Different man... Who's Next!?! Who can draw me even further aw…

Why Do Skinny Women Get More Respect...

Okay, let me first start off by saying, I do not think like Monique. I love skinny women. I aspire to be skinny again one day. Who am I kidding, I wasn't skinny... LOL! I was a size 8, and that was comfortable to me. And being a size 14 now, I would pay good money to be a size 8 again. I would probably commit a crime, to be a size 8 again. Kidding, I wouldn't commit a crime.. Or would I.. Hmmmmm :)

Anywho, what brought this on was, my calendar is getting super busy... I'm being pulled into more, and doing more with my business. And my first thought was "I need to drop 50lbs immediately!". What brought that thought on!?! I'll tell you what, I know that smaller women are more respected. People look at skinny women differently in the corporate world.

And, I work to hard, not to be respected. There is more to me than my size, but I don't want people to tune me out, before I even get started. Now, I am secure in myself... Let's NOT get that t…
