A fat girl’s quest to freedom

Mentality

I had promised myself that I would do more in 2014. I don’t just mean activity, I mean living. Getting out there and really experiencing life. I don’t know when I became a hermit but I have become this woman that sits at home 90% of the time. I am sick of that woman. I [...]

Hard Core Restart - The Road to Rugged Maniac 2014

It has been a while since I blogged about my weight loss or better yet my failing at weight loss. 2013 was a year of gains and losses but not really making any inroads to freeing my inner fit girl. 2014 is a year of change. I have finally gotten serious…I mean really serious. No [...]

SUCCESS!!

I did it! I ate completely health yesterday! I feel great and I am looking forward to today!

List 5 reasons that keeps you motivated to continue working out and eating right:

The scale is on the move!

Today marks my first weigh in and I have lost 5lbs! Very happy right now and this keeps me motivated to keep going. I have found a great fountain of support and I hope it will helpe during the slumps.

It’s day number 7 and I’m doing good but I can do better with my eating. But I’m not going to get down on myself about it. I’m will keep excercising and counting calories. I think we(big girls) have such a rigid attitude about dieting and excercising that we tend to set ourselves up for [...]

Healthy Restart

It has been a great start to my new commitment. I am on Day 7 and I am proud to say that I have worked out on 6 of the seven days. I still have a way to go to but I’m just proud of myself for getting up every night and doing it after [...]

New commitments, betrayals and triumphs

So….. I’m back again. The last couple of months have been filled with upheaval and the dust has finally settled. There has been so many changes, revelations and painful discoveries…this is going to be a long post.
First: New Commitments…
I have been living in the same house for the past five years. It started out pretty [...]
