Hello perfect Saturday afternoon, and how are you doing?
Olympics, gym, healthy eating, studying, and tea?
Hi Hi Hi! Yes, I’ve been super MIA on talking about the gym.running.trainers, BUT I got ANOTHER trainer (if you’re keeping track it’s #3), he seems awesome. I start with him on Tuesday. So I’ll post then.
Trainer #2 was TERRIBLE, he had no concept of running, “you do the running think, I’ll help you in the gym,” but that’s not what I wanted…
Anywho, so yes I’ll post about it on Tuesday. Thanks for asking.
Ahh I WISH that was my city. I’m in Toronto, that’s Vancouver. However Vancouver is STUNNING, I’ve been there a few times and would move there in a heart beat if the sun came out a little more there and it didn’t rain as much… it’s so beautiful, I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a vacay.
Sometimes when I get down on myself for no real reason (cough just being a girl cough) I think about how exciting it would be to lose weight, the feeling of accomplishment, the feeling I can do anything, the feeling of setting a goal and following through…
How exciting. Bring on the future, I’m ready for it. Finally.
Posting this for the good of mankind… well, fellow tubby people that is.
I’ve never claimed to be an expert. Never. And if I personally eat 1 bad meal a week my weight will stay the same, but yes, in that example I was thinking fairly bad… like burger/fries and then candy and ice-cream ect. Borderline binge eating, a night where one says, “eff it” and just eats 4 slices of pizza, drinks alcohol, gets drunk food ect.
Well, I’m not going to argue this, and I’ll continue posting my little disclaimer, about how I don’t know anything and this is all just from MY personal experience, in the hopes that people take what I say with a grain of salt. I don’t have the answers, umm hello there… I’m still fat over here.
But yes. Point taken… thanks.
Me? A favourite? Oh me oh my, I’m blushing, thank you!! I’m going to go out on a limb here and say the 160s are so the new 120s…
ha! we wish :)
Good luck on your journey too! and thank you for reading/following/supporting!
Hello Other E, How are you? Oh wait, I know exactly how you are…
It’s crappy isn’t it? One of the worst things about trying to lose weight is trying to eat healthy and seeing that little number between your toes stay the same or go up, it’s simply heart breaking. No body said it be easy, but nobody said it be this hard (o.k… that was lame, sorry had that song in my head), BUT I fully understand, finding the motivation to eat healthy and make the right decisions is SO HARD, and sadly I don’t have the answer you’re looking for (otherwise I’d be a very rich lady!), BUT as corny as it sounds you already have the power to lose the weight, to run marathons, to be the person you want to be. Everything you do is a decision. Everything. Tell everyone you know you’re trying to lose weight, what? but that’s embarrassing? Well so is being over weight, put pictures up, type up goals, buy the dress you wanna wear to the wedding (ps in Toronto? Wanna meet up? That could be your motivation too! :) email me)
You can do it. It’s that simple. Start now. Know you’re worth it. Know you’re not alone. Know food isn’t what life is about. Not even a little bit. Not even at all. When you think that initial thought of, “oh I want a cookie” stop, think, note how that thought was wrong, think “yay, I’m not eating that cookie, go me!” Think Positive. You can do it!!!!! You really can.*
Thinking the uttermost happy and best wishes upon you,
* again, blind leading the blind, just my humble thoughts.
