To begin, let me first clarify that the title of the blog has absolutely no basis in reality. It comes from a conversation with friends that culminated in a horrific vision of me sitting on the hood of a car, eating poutine, reading a book titled “Why Am I So Skinny?” (which I am pretty sure does not exist). That did not actually happen (thank god) but the very thought of it provided me and my friends with a great deal of amusement. The complete story does not tend to cast me in the best light, but even so, to this day thinking back on that conversation makes me laugh and thus the title of the blog.

In reality, this will likely end up being a space to chronicle my never-ending attempts to BECOME skinny. Or, more accurately, to become healthy…possibly even fit! And it will definitely be a space where I will ramble on about most everything else.
