First of all, Happy Friday the 13th! A lot of people consider this day unlucky, but not me. My mom was born on a Friday the 13th and so I consider it VERY lucky! Thank you all for your responses to my blog "Yes, I'm the Fat Girl at the Gym... Read more

The More You Sweat

Friday, May 13, 2011      7 comments

The more someone is sweating at the gym, the more I admire them. It's true. Usually I'd think that sweating is gross, but at the gym it seems like those who are working the hardest are the ones who are drenched in sweat. I used to be embara... Read more

Never Surrender

Wednesday, May 11, 2011      7 comments

I've been referring to my quest to lose weight as my weight loss journey, but in reality it's more than that. It's a war. I've declared war on my bad eating habits, general laziness, and fat. I'm the General, controlling all of the movements of ... Read more

Sometimes I Still Let the Inner FatGirl Win

Tuesday, May 10, 2011      13 comments

Seriously? After the awesome thoughts I had about the gym yesterday and the things I've achieved, I let my inner FatGirl win last night. I didn't go to the gym. I told myself that instead of going to the gym and doing weights, I would spring cle... Read more

Monday, May 09, 2011      254 comments

One of the biggest issues that I have is that I care too much about what other people think of me. I don't want to look stupid or fat or annoying. Going to the gym is a bit of a struggle because of this. I look around at all the pretty people wh... Read more

Drama, Drama, Drama

Monday, May 09, 2011      2 comments

Today's post isn't about exercise, but the lack of sleep. Last night I went to bed at midnight. That's normal for me. I was awake listening to my downstairs neighbors party until about 3am when a fight broke out. Everyone in my building was outs... Read more

Still Fighting To Lose

Saturday, May 07, 2011      6 comments

I thought about skipping the gym today, but instead I sucked it up and went. I did 3.5 miles on the treadmill and felt like my legs were going to fall off by the time I was done. It's so easy to talk myself into staying home, so I was proud to g... Read more

My Muscles Hate Me

Friday, May 06, 2011      3 comments

I seriously think they do. Wednesday I did weight training with my trainer. We actually didn't do much, but the few things we did pushed me to my limit. I know this, because he actually had to help me with the last few reps so that I didn't smas... Read more

"Cheating" is still Cheating

Thursday, May 05, 2011      11 comments

Lately I've been considering eating a big, fat, greasy cheeseburger from a fast food restaurant. That should be pretty obvious to anyone who's read anything I've written or had a conversation with me in the past two weeks. I am practically obses... Read more

Learning to Be Your Own Biggest Fan

Wednesday, May 04, 2011      8 comments

Weight loss is not just about losing weight. It's about changing your state of mind and learning to love yourself. I think that learning to love myself is the hardest lesson for me. On high school, I was awesome. I'm not just saying that. I... Read more

No Longer Plotting the Demise of Gym-Time

Tuesday, May 03, 2011      5 comments

You know what I think about working out? I think that the more I think about it, the higher the probability that I won't do it. If I sit around all day dreading tonight's workout, then I am going to have HOURS to come up with an excuse not ... Read more

FatMe vs. RealMe: The Ultimate Battle

Monday, May 02, 2011      2 comments

I am a competitive person by nature. The quickest way to get me to do something is to challenge me - tell me that you can do it faster or that I can't get it done in 20 minutes and you'll be amazed at what I get done. This is why I love SP.... Read more

Healthy is a Lifestyle, Not a Journey

Sunday, May 01, 2011      5 comments

I had a realization today that made me stop and really think for awhile. When I think about my weight loss journey, I think of the time I spend in the gym and the healthy or not-so-healthy food choices I make. In reality, my weight loss journey ... Read more

The Cheeseburger Does Not Own Me

Sunday, May 01, 2011      3 comments

I wanted a cheeseburger today. I wanted one so badly that it was all I could think about. Every answer to every question was "cheeseburger". I finally decided to give in and that I'd stop for a cheeseburger on the way home from my parent's house... Read more

Someday, My Goal Weight Will Come

Friday, April 29, 2011      7 comments

Lately when I've been on the treadmill at the gym, I've been feeling discouraged. I'm not seeing a huge change in my weight. I understand that it'll take time and I know that my body is changing. Muscle weighs more and my measurements are changi... Read more
