A fat girl’s quest to freedom

I won…and other new motivations

So…I did it! I finish Jillian Michaels yesterday and I felt great. I was sore, exhausted and..sore but I was SO proud of myself. A couple of months ago I attempted it and quit after 3 minutes. After a quick shower I went to bed. Now…..new motivations. Today my friend called me to go out […]

My love/hate relationship with Jillian

Ok…the first time I did 30DS, I was positive and ready to go. I had no problems with my second and third time either…but today…I feel like she’s torturing me. I don’t know why I’m having so much trouble working through this today. What I’m feeling as I trudge through this is frustration, emotional anguish and […]

New motivation

It’s been a couple of days since I blogged. I’m doing good, still on track but I started to feel a little shaky in my commitment. Someone in my house received a catalog from Chadwick’s (a thin person’s clothing store) and I love the clothes in Chadwick’s, they’re fun, colorful and stylish but I always […]

7 days…

Good morning! So today marks the official end of the first week of my quest….and I can’t believe I made it. I’m officially down 8lbs! I had many struggles this first week, some were expected and some were surprising. The emotional triggers, fear, self doubt, stress, anxiety all happened this week…and I found that I was able […]

Still going strong…

So…since the last time I posted there have been changes. First a confession: I stepped on the scale this morning ( my weigh-in date is Mondays) …..I have lost 9lbs so far! After the last two days, I ‘m really happy that I’ve lost weight. Don’t worry, I’ve been mostly on-plan, I just have been […]

Workouts and critical thinking.

Hello all! Well I’ve had a busy day…but first things first: Jillian Michaels 30 day shred. This workout is killer, no I don’t think you understand, KILLER! I managed to complete my first workout (barely) before falling out. When I came back to my senses, however, I felt good. I had another “moment”, but this […]

Ughhhh….well, time to move on.

Good Morning! I have a full day today but I couldn’t leave until I blogged :-p. Even though I didn’t technically eat the popcorn, I have to wonder about the effects it had on me. Yesterday I woke full of energy and positive, but today I was sluggish and I laid in bed for 2 […]

Finished strong…somewhat

Ok…I had my first large hurdle today. So I decided to watch Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in preparation for the new movie coming out. So there I am sitting in front of the TV with a huge bowl of Movie theater buttered popcorn. I popped a handful of popcorn in my […]


Ok….I know I shouldn’t have, but I wanted to see if there was any change in weight from yesterday….and I was down 3lbs! I’m excited but I have to remember to keep it moving and stay positive and NOT get complacent. Okay…the scale is away until next Monday.(No more peeking, I promise);-)

Starting today on a high note

Well…I made it through the first day sucessfully! I tried something new last night and I was more than a little worried that I would not make it. I made a promise to myself not eat anything after 7pm..and I made it. I stay up late often and I get the munchies usually around 10pm but […]
