Truly, Mayhem.

Everyone that has come to this site, has a fat-kid story. In this, I am like everyone else. However, I cant say Ive been overweight/obese my whole life. Ive been the fat-girl among my friends since I was about 10, but if I look at pictures of myself from the 8th grade.. all dressed up for a dance.. I was not fat. But, all my friends were definately a lot smaller. One day I sat down and looked at that picture and I thought, if I could just have been happy with myself then, where would I be now? ...

But, all my friends were definately a lot smaller. One day I sat down and looked at that picture and I thought, if I could just have been happy with myself then, where would I be now?

So Ive decided. Im done being miserable, and being full of self-hate. Do I love the way I look in a mirror? Not really. But do I love my body? Without it, I wouldnt be able to dance, or go shopping, or cuddle, or play with my dog. So yes, I love my body. I just want to transform its reflection, and become a healthier happier me.

Along the way I hope to make some new friends and find the support that I have so often been for others. To do the things I have encouraged others to do.

Ultimately, I want to inspire just one person. I want one person to look at me a year from now and just think "wow, if she can change her life, I'm sure I can change mine too."

Other Information:
I read a post the other day about priorities.

We live our lives by saying we "don't have time" when in reality, we aren't giving our time to the things we say are 'important.'

Priorities and perspective.. maybe that is what will finally have me changing my life.

I found my coach at one of my local CrossFits... I wrote an email to the closest CrossFit to me in an effort to try something I'd never tried before.. I said "Can a 51 year old 326lb woman do CrossFit?".. their response took a week in coming and when it did it was milktoast at best.. so I took the exact same email and sent it to another CrossFit... the owner (my coach) answered me back in 45 minutes.. "Absolutely!!" he said and we set up a time to meet... I told him my first goal was to weigh 255lbs by August the 18th and asked him if he could get me there (that was my weight goal for my trip to Africa so I could do the zipline).. he said I could workout everyday but 90% of my success was going to be what I did outside the gym in my kitchen.. he agreed to do 1:1 coaching for a month if I agreed to eat 100% paleo during that time.. if at the end of the month I didn't feel better and wasn't pleased with my progress then we'd part ways.. that was 9 months and 118lbs ago!! He is amazing... he understands that so much of this is a mental game... for the first month I sent him a picture of every morsel of food that I ate which really helped me "learn" what has become my new way of eating.. during that first month we worked out 3x a week for 30 minutes because that's all I could handle.. you can see in the video it wasn't pretty at all... but he challenged me every.single.workout... and I felt such a sense of accomplishment in pushing myself... don't get me wrong, it was scary.. so so scary... to walk into my CrossFit and see all the fit people.. but you know what? they were so welcoming to me.. they encouraged me and cheered me on and continue to do so today.. CrossFit is just different.. it's the hardest thing I've ever done but also the most rewarding.. are you on Facebook? look at "Women of Crossfit = Strong" there are TONS of stories about women 300lbs+ doing CrossFit and eating Paleo.. it's a lethal combination for fat!! You can do this... and for me, after the first month, it's been easy.. I hate to say that cuz I know it's frustrating to others to see... but it's true.. maybe once a month I have a really hard time (maybe).. other than that WHY would I NOT eat Paleo when I have ZIP ZERO NADA cravings and feel completely nourished with no mood swings OR why would I NOT do CrossFit when I have ABS, and biceps, and glutes!! I have muscles! so pretty... and I'm not special.. anyone can do this! My life is changed for the better in so many ways... Please let me know if I can help you find a CrossFit in your area... or help you in any other way... I would love to help you meet your goals and live up to your potential..
