Is People Magazine Glamorizing Obesity…

Capture

... On the cover of People Magazine is model Tess Holliday. The headline heralds, "The World's First Size 22 Super Model, From Bullied Teen to Plus Size Star."As everyone else celebrates this new diversity in the fashion industry, I can't help but feel alarmed that so many people are ok with a 5'5" tall woman weighing 260 lbs and being a size 22.At 5'9" I'm 20 lbs heavier than she is and a size larger.When I look at her modeling portfolio I see a beautiful woman with a lot of … [Read more...]

I worked out and it didn’t kill me…

hey whatever you got laying around the house

... I've made it half through the second month and true to my word I've been exercising regularly.Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday are my walk days and I walk at a local park for a mile or pretty darn close to it. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are my work out days where I do a 15 minute stair exercise routine after work and do planks, squats, and horrible things to my arms with hand weights.Sunday I rest because even God took a day off.I know I said I was only going to step on … [Read more...]

The Math of Weight Loss…

put_it_all_in_my_face

... I know I promised not to turn this into a diet blog, but it just so happened this week I'd been too busy to sit down and write anything else. So you get two diet posts in a row following last week's theme.Things I've Learned- What the difference between being satisfied, full, and stuffed feels like. - That one pound of weight lost relieves 4 pounds of pressure off the knees. - You sleep better after getting exercise and fresh air, even just a little. - Planks are hard.

So far, so good. A diet update …

honey I shrunk the food

... I figured the best way to discuss the "diet" thing on my blog, without becoming overly obsessive on the topic, would be to offer weekly roundups at the end of each week.So lets kick this off with some things I've learned, some inspirational stories, NSV ( non scale victories), and just some general thoughts on body issues and eating disorders.Things I've Learned- There are more different types of diets than there are hairs on my head. - People in general are good and want to … [Read more...]

Hey look at me, I’m fat…

seems about right

... This is the post I've been meaning to write for years. It's the post I keep putting off. The post that I've convinced myself is silly, self indulgent self pity. No one cares about your dieting up and downs. I mean really, what woman isn't concerned with their weight and appearance? It's such a stereotypical thing to write about it, why bother?Why bother indeed.Because I need to write about it.I forgot that I originally started writing this blog for me as an interactive … [Read more...]
