Hey Fat Girl....


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, September 02, 2012





I saw this blog post this morning and thought some (cough cough emoticon) of us could relate. Even though I don't run, just barely walk, I have found myself feeling this way at the walking park. It gave me a new perspective on what others think of me out there. It is never as bad as we imagine it to be. Thank goodness! Hope this inspires you to "get out there" anyway! Enjoy!

    It brings back memories of walking down the street with my oldest daughter and hearing people say I hope the skinny one (she's a size 0) never turns out like the fat one. It got me wanting to get the excess weight off. It made me sad as well that people can be so shallow and judgemental. My daughter gets sick when she puts on weight as she is vitamin deficient along with other problems. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    People walk in various stages of physical fitness. When I see an overweight person walking I don't think anything bad of them. In fact I'm proud of them. It goes the same at the gym. When I see someone with weight issues working out, I'm proud of them.

    We have lots of walkers in our neighborhood, all shapes and sizes and ages. Some come with canines too! Just know how cool you are to get out there, taking care of yourself. Keep up the good work!

    All I can say is WOW!!! I'm always self-conscious while working out. Wether it is at the fitness center or in my bedroom. Now I can start thinking differently.

    This made me cry and I never cry over blogs!

I won't go to exercise classes, I only work out at home, because I can't keep up and I don't want to look silly. What a great blog!

    Thank you for sharing this. I feel like I am on both sides of this at times. I can jog about 4-5 miles, but I don't go as fast as many other runners out there. I see the people out there who are going slower than I am and I know how hard they are working and I remember how hard it was when I started. It is a good reminder that we are usually our own worst critic. Other people out there are usually not as judgemental as we imagine them to be.

    I am so glad you shared this blog. I am one of those gym rats, runners, cyclists who has tremendous respect for anyone exercising who does not fit the image of "fit." Maybe next time I pass that "fat girl/guy" I will tell them how awesome they are and give them words of encouragement.

  If your out there moving you never know who you are encouraging. I've seen people smile as if they sre saying "good for you" or "if she can do it I can to". What we do is an example or more powerful than we think to others.

    Thank you for bringing this to us. It is a good reminder to us all about how we should look at ourselves and not to hide away in fear of others - fears that often have no justification. Heads held high, best foot forward.

    When ever I see anyone out being active I think it's great! No matter how big, small, tall..... It's refreshing to see other people take control of their health and well being.

    Thank you so much for posting this. I can't begin to tell you how much I needed this! I feel so self conscious at the gym. I go in the slow times because of that and still haven't worked up the nerve to get into the pool and swim. I really like the gym and feel better when I go - it makes me happy but I still feel eyes on me - real or imagined - they feel like they're there. The 'Hey Fat Girl' blog moved me to tears and filled me with hope. Thank you so very much for sharing this. You really touched a spot deep within me.
