That Ugly Fat Girl?

So I was taking a look at my past blogs the other day and I came across the blog I wrote back in April that showed my weight loss journey in pictures. And all I can say is OMG! That starting picture is so freaking horrendous. I can't believe that I actually thought I looked pretty weighing that much. I can't believe that my husband actually found me attractive then. And I can honestly say that I was not one of the pretty fat girls...I was just plain fat and ugly. Its funny what lies one's self will tell them to help them feel good about themselves. I look at myself then and then I look at myself now and can't even comprehend that they are the same person. I feel like I'm a completely different person now. I AM a completely different person now. 


But every once in a while I still look at myself I still see a fat, overweight, ugly person. Like today, I know I had just rocked it on the treadmill doing sprint intervals (definitely going to add that to my workout plan more often). But then I had gotten on the weight machines to do some leg work and all I could see was the fat roll around my stomach and how ugly I looked. I absolutely HATE thinking this way about myself. I have come too far to keep thinking this way but then I keep thinking: "How much longer is it going to take until I'm at the happy weight?" It has has taken me so long to lose these last 10 lbs that I'm getting more and more frustrated with myself. I'm having more and more days where I just don't want to go to the gym and workout. I really want to go to any natural skinny person and say FU! Yes, I know that isn't rational and nice and it's isn't like I'm really going to say it. So to help stop these thoughts from taking over in my head and accidentally coming out..mainly the FU one, lol, I'm going to go back to that first picture of that person who I no longer know, then look at the most recent picture of me so I can SEE the results of everything I have done. Sometimes its takes seeing to start believing!!



This girl no longer exists and never will again!

Only this version and better versions of this girl will exists from now on!

  2. Dude, I feel you. Because my metabolism is so messed up, when I'm sick and can't work out, even though I eat right, it messes everything up. But you know, a loss is still a loss and you're at the poking that it's going to be harder. Don't give up. Don't quit.

    And, that happy weight where you're 100% happy with your body, doesn't exist. You will always find flaws. Always. The trick is to learn to love those flaws, or at the very least, accept them.

Opinions Needed/Wanted....

So, through out this whole process of me dropping this weight my one want, my one hope would be that my legs would slim down. When I was at my highest weight I carried my weight pretty much all over my body, though my stomach was very big, but so were my legs, arms, and face. And as I have dropped the weight I have lost the weight in my face, arms and stomach, but I feel that my legs are still as big as ever. When trying on pants I don't necessarily worry so much as if they will fit in the waist or being too long since I'm short I know I will always run into problems there, lol. No, my worry is if the pants are going to fit over my calves and thighs. My wish is to be able to wear calf length or even knee high boots this fall and with the size of my legs that wish isn't going to be coming true any time soon. Plus I've noticed that I'm either going to need to stick with floor length or above the knee dresses as anything that falls in between make my legs look stumpy …

2014 Update

It's been a while since I wrote a blog...almost a year in fact...

I have struggled so much with my weight over the last couple of years. I went from about 145 lbs up to 200 lbs. I'm back down in the 190's but so upset since I was so happy when I was in the 140s. I need to tighten my belt, for lack of better words, and get back to watching my diet and really and truly get back to counting calories since I know that works for me. 

What really is heart breaking for me is going up in size in clothing. I went from wearing a size 8 to a 14, now back down to 12. I hate buying new clothes when I ones I love just sitting in my closet now being worn.

The good thing this all is that I truly never gave up working out. I might have not been doing it at the intensity that I was in the past but that has change about 5 months ago. Five months ago I found CrossFit and fell in love. I have found through this program that it is very humbling and empowering. I have done more things that I have n…
