Being fat in Los Angeles is pretty brutal. Besides the obvious aesthetic discrimination, I am also missing out on a lot of what my city offers. I'm 28 years old and time is running out to become the person I am inside: healthy, skinny, active and FABULOUS.
On the inside, I am this super fabulous skinny girl who lives a glamorous lifestyle. On the outside, i'm an overweight mexican girl who works for the state :( This is my attempt to become the girl I am in my heart....to become healthy and start carving out the life I want to lead....instead of leading a life that I don't feel I belong in.
I used to consume and average of 2,600 calories a day. Crazy, right? I am now working on keeping my daily caloric intake between 1200 and 1500.
I'm totally lazy at the moment, so i'm trying my hardest to incorporate at least 30 minutes of walking every day. Eventually, i'd like to get a gym membership and actually use it.
I love to eat. I love food. This diet is extremely difficult for me and I struggle with it everyday. Know what else I struggle with? Being fat. So now i'm sucking it up and taking steps to change that.
My name is Jessica and I am ordinary in every way. I go to school, work full time, have a sprinkle of good friends, a great family and a loving boyfriend, dog, and cat.
I absolutely feel like this life is not mine. The life I belong in is filled with late nights in Hollywood, hikes in Runyon park, yoga at the beach, and surfing with my equally healthy friends. I am itching to break out of my mundane existance and begin living how I want to!
My main goal here is not to get healthy. I'm already fairly healthy. I have normal/excellent blood pressure and absolutely no illnesses. My goal here is to get SKINNY! I realize this may be hard for some of you to agree with, and that's ok. Los Angeles is very aesthetic and my quality of life is entirely dependent on what I look like. So yes, my goal with this diet is be skinny, and if I get healthier along the way, then that's just a bonus :)
Secrets of Success
This user doesn't have any secrets of success.
I just stumbled across your page and I love your personality. Of course we all want to be healthy. But once that has been reached, its vanity from there. And i am definitely not one to judge that. My favorite times in my life were where i was my skinniest... and thus most confident, most active, most sexy, etc.
I'm excited to watch you along your journey. What did you do today that was a healthy choice and took you one step closer to your goal?

Love your spunk! F! LA and it's stupid stereotypes! I've been here for 6 years now and don't like the perception of women that is so strongly put on women here. Keep rocking on!

Hi, I understand how you feel about being over weight living in LA. It's the probably the most 'got to be slim and in shape' kind of town in the US. But I think that being healthy is the most important thing -that you eat healthy food and get exercise. Anyway I hope everything is going well with your current weight loss goals. -Keep being fabulous!

Thanks for your comment! I am trying to follow the South Beach diet principles and do an hour of cardio daily. Today didn't work so good. I got home and started on my hw for college and before I knew it it was 8pm and I was eating dinner (how mac and cheese ended up on my plate I don't know! lol...) and it's too late for the gym. Ahh well...tomorrow is another day. I refuse to beat myself up about it. Just gotta keep on truckin!
