The point is derived from the idea that many people falsely believe that they are going to drop weight from exercise and minor modifications in diet when in reality the majority of fat loss is going to occur from changes in one's diet.

Thanks for sharing. It is very inspiring. I hope everyone will be like her, not afraid to run in front of people no matter how she looks like, not thinking what others may say.

Default Hey, Fat Girl.

Brilliant blog post. Beautiful. Almost brought me to tears. I will never feel self-conscious about working out again.

This is so true. Someone posted a few weeks ago about being insulted/feeling insecure while running ... every time I see a heavier person running or in my Zumba class, I simply think how much harder it must be for them ("he/she rocks!") and how I should work harder too!
Key Dates/Goals:

Tough Mudder (12 miles and 24 intense obstacles) - September 8, 2012 ... Goal = Kick a**

25th Birthday/Beach Trip - September 20, 2012 ... Goal = 120-123lbs/look great in a swimsuit.

Only thing is that I wish, wish, wish people wouldn't jump into running so quickly. That determination can get waylaid by injury so easily and they're determination can get waylaid by the sheer difficulty of trying to move a heavy body in a way that is hard for it to do.

I have seen so many people try at something so hard that they give up. if only they built up to it first!

But it is true... most people do not look down on the overweight and unfit who are WORKING on their fitness. How could they?

Restart 5/18/15 began at 263.9. All time high was 275 in 7/03. Low in Summer 2012 of 169.
A for the first 50 pounds lost, plus a for every additional 5 pounds lost on the weight loss reboot:

I have luckily never had any negative comments while working out. I have had strangers say "way to go", give me a thumbs up, etc. It's really great to feel so supported.

Am I the only person who finds this pretty patronizing?

I mean, what makes her think that I need or want her approval? She's reinforcing the same standard that the sentiment of her post is0( sort of) trying to resist--that thin people are better than fat people, and that we fat people need approval from thin people in order to feel ok about ourselves. Scr*w that.

the first gym I joined way back in like 1982 was a hardcore weightlifting gym because, well, that was the only kind back then. And the owner who was obviously a competative body builder told me never to be embarassed to be at the gym and be in worse shape then the other people. Everyone is the same at the gym, they are all trying to improve. No one is concerned about your current level of fitness, they just respect that you are there to improve just like them.
Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, handsome, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God

Thank you for posting this. This was EXACTLY what I needed tonight. For the past week, I've been trying to finish the day 1 workout for C25K, but I always got way too fatigued to get through it all. Until tonight.

I had already made up my mind that I was NOT going to try again tonight, but then I logged onto 3FC and this thread was the first thing I saw. It was just what I needed to be a big girl, put on my shoes, and finally conquer the day 1 workout.

Thank you!

Getting out of the 130's!
