About Me

My name is the fabulous Sammie! The brilliant heifer that brings you the joy and delight that is From Chunky to Funky.

I am a a complete nerd! I am obsessed with a huge fan of Doctor Who, Harry Potter and dystopian fiction novels. I also love Zombie books (and movies sometimes), but I'm far too chicken to actually watch The Walking Dead. I'm a wild-eyed bibliomaniac, lover of cheese, and protector of the innocent. According to my different fandom obsessions I am a Gryffindor and I'm Divergent (split between Erudite and Dauntless). As far as sports go, I'm an Aggie fan, Yankees die hard, and Mavericks lover!

I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2010. I currently work as a substitute teacher and I'm trying to find a job as a high school English teacher. I'm a proud Aggie and I bleed maroon until I die! JFF! I met some of the most amazing people in college.

Even though I am only 23ish, I have been engaged twice. Once was a completely dreadful experience where he was a cheating asshat with multiple children that I was unaware of. The other was a really sweet guy, but he just wasn't the one I'm supposed to marry.

I have some of the best friends in the entire world. They are there for me when times are hard, easy and in between. Unfortunately I only have picture of myself with 2 of them. Hopefully this summer will bring pictures of Ellie and I and Richard and I :)

 If you must know, she's 6'4". Amazonian hiefer.


Post graduation!

I started the blog FCTF with the idea that I would eventually get off my bum and lose some weight. I've been on and off diets for what feels like my entire life. I've always been a bigger/curvier girl. As I've grown and learned, I've come to realize that my happiness isn't based on my weight at all. FCTF focuses on my growth as a person into someone healthy and happy. Is my goal really to lose weight? Not really. I'm sure it will happen if I keep on my current path. My ultimate goal is to be happy and confident. I will continue to work out, eat right, and I will run a 5k someday. Weight will never define who I am as a person.
