This Is Like Our Own TV Show
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
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
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
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
Yes, I'm the Fat Girl at the Gym and that makes me Awesome!
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
