meeting Dietgirl and PastaQueen

So, what was it like meeting the famous Dietgirl and PastaQueen? Shauna said it best: "Whenever I meet a fatblogger, I'm always surprised by how small she is!" Shauna and Jennette are both so cute and thin. It's really hard to believe that the two have them have lost somewhere in the neighborhood of 300 pounds between them.

As much as I was starstruck at first, it was like meeting old friends. It's a little weird, though, to actually talk to someone face-to-face after reading their writing and writing back. And the conference is such an amazing opportunity that I feel obligated to fling myself into everything full force, which means that by the end of the day, during the cocktail parties, I'm so tired and spacy that I'm not the best company. We spent a lot of time wandering around looking for people, finding them, and losing them again.

It's hard to believe that I'm leaving tomorrow. I'm looking forward to getting home, but at the same time I have the sense that this is all slipping away too fast. I have a full day ahead of me, and I'll do my best to make the most of it.


  1. You guys look amazing - and normal. I wouldn't say any of you are fatbloggers, you blog about weight issues but it's different. I'm so glad you got to meet1

  2. Great photo! You guys look so cute together.

  3. Jen, it was so great meeing you too! I know what you mean about how the time slipped away so fast. It would be nice to have a time machine to go back and be in two places at once. Thanks again for the MegaBus rec! It was a great ride and so cheap.
