Fighting to Lose Again

After losing nearly 40 lbs, I have gained most of that weight back and am hoping I can get back on the right side of Onederland soon. I turn 30 on Sept 17, 2014 and I want my 30's to be healthy so I can start a family and be the best me I've ever been!

Written January 2009 -- Ever since I can remember, I've never felt like the skinny girl. Even when I was nearly 100 lbs skinnier in high school, I felt like a cow compared to my thin friends. After gaining some weight towards the end of high school, I felt even worse. I lost about 15 lbs on weight watchers before I went to college, but when I met my beautiful and thin college roommate (who is still one of my best friends) over six years ago, it was what you might call another ego-crushing moment!

Why is it that people always need to compare themselves to others? I suppose it is only human nature. In six years I have gained ~60 lbs and a lot more neuroses, but in some ways I couldn't be happier. I have a wonderful boyfriend, I live in one of the coolest cities in the world and I am alive! I joined this site to try to help myself change myself... not so I can look like a Hollywood celebrity, or even look like my best friend. From now on I am only going to compare myself to myself. Setting tangible, realistic goals, and only hoping to become a better me. Not a better somebody else.

"Oh, and her mom sounds crazy!" LMAO Yes, that's an understatement... I actually think she's a nut bar, always have... now it's OFFICIAL! I wonder if I should tell my BFF about the email (I still haven't told her yet, but I assume her mother knows I have unfriended her since she only had 3 FB friends before.. and now she only has 2! LOL)

Anyways, whatever! It is a stupid thing to fight about... friends of this magnitude should be able to talk to each other right!?!?!

Hmmm...I did the home Turbo Jam workouts years before I knew you could take the live Turbo Kick classes. Then I stated taking the class at a gym. And being that you are in California, the birthplace of Chalene's ideas, you would think it's in gyms everywhere there. That's like people in Florida not hearing of Zumba when it was created in Miami. Midwest, being in the middle, we're usually last to jump on these things.

Thanks for your input! After taking the "Turbo Kick" class that was not actually Turbo Kick, and just kickboxing, I'm thinking somehow I can take out some of the "turbo" style and call the class Kickboxing. People hesitate when they hear "Turbo Kick" and they don't know that it is just kickboxing.

I always ask new students if they have heard of Turbo Kick, Turbo Jam or Turbo Fire, and you would be surprised how many have not heard of any of these.
