Last night I was reading an article about the model Crystal Renn. If you don't know about her she is gorgeous and when she was young she was anorexic and exercised compulsively to get her 5'10" body down to the sample sizes she needed to wear to... Read more
Strength training improves my self esteem and NS victories!
Monday, February 07, 2011 26 comments
It has been 2 weeks since I went back to gym land and I really missed it A LOT. The scale has yet to budge so I started looking for NS victories to keep me motivated and positive. I hate doing my measurements because I get obsessed with doing it... Read more
Trying to control my obsessing

My heart and my brain are in a huge fight right now and my brain is winning. I have an obsessive personality, always have and always will. I can worry myself sick over the most ridiculous things. I feel everything that people around me feel whic... Read more

I am getting inspiration all over the place from my Sparkfriends and it is awesome. I just commented on a friends blog about how she felt inadequate so she looked to binge and even though she ate a healthy meal she still felt unsatisfied. The an... Read more
Excuses are just lies to yourself

Thanks to SCHENPOSSIBLE for giving me this blog idea. Her status was about not making any more excuses and it got me thinking. Excuses are nothing more than lies. Lies to ourselves, lies to our trainers, doctors, loved ones, and friends. There a... Read more

Tuesday, February 01, 2011 38 comments
I tried on off for 14 years to lose weight. I failed time and time again. Tried every single diet known to man other than pills and surgeries. When a doctor who had never even looked at me suggested I get bariatric surgery to my horror and the h... Read more

Sunday was one of me and my fiancé's rare fights. This was an all out big one and normally I would have sulked and cried and not gone to the gym 1) because that would upset him and to be spiteful (this is the old me we are talking about) 2) I wo... Read more
I am doing this because this is the person I want to be

It really isn't much simpler that that statement. I want to be strong, focused, confident, athletic, toned and healthy. Focusing on the negative things you don't like is easy but to put into words WHY you want to lose weight and get healthy is h... Read more

I have been feeling badly about being stuck at this weight for awhile. When you are stagnant you start to find your flaws again and the negative self talk starts to creep into your psyche. At the beginning of SP I was losing weight so quickly th... Read more
Diet and Fitness: I want to vs I have/need to
Sunday, January 23, 2011 26 comments
Today was the day I broke my exercise drought. FINALLY. I talked about it on here, I talked about it at home. Last night I was talking about it again and my fiancé stood in front of me and looked me in the eyes and said "Honey, enough, you can d... Read more
Facing down my workout denial
Friday, January 21, 2011 38 comments
I am not sure why I have this all or nothing attitude. I either kill myself at the gym or make excuses. It is strange to me as I sit here and try to psycho babble overanalyze why I do it this way because I actually really enjoy being active. In ... Read more

I have always been a large size than I look. When I go into stores the sales lady will ask if I need and help and say "You are what, a 16?". Nope, I am still in a 22 and is upsetting to me. How can I be losing so much weight but seeing my size c... Read more
Went to the doctor today....

for the first time since I joined SP. It was not my primary but the girl doctor kind (sorry guys, TMI) but part of getting healthy is getting your yearlies and I want to talk about BABIES. Yes, it scares me to say that. See, I finally feel like ... Read more
Wait, I am on a diet and I am not hungry? How is that possible...
Tuesday, January 18, 2011 38 comments
I think one of the old ideas of dieting is that you are supposed to be miserable. Otherwise jokes like "It is die with a T" wouldn't exist and people wouldn't moan relentlessly about it. Yes, I know you are thinking "it isn't a diet it is a life... Read more
Dude, you stole my blog!

Yesterday I posted a link to my new blog on blogger both on here and on facebook. I am pretty excited about it. I have a friend who is not on Sparkpeople that really looks up to me and at first I was flattered but now I am starting to get skeeve... Read more
