    Wednesday Weigh In: Week 11

    So, I’ve been off from my weigh in for two weeks. We missed Week 9 and Week 10, but I’m back it with my Week 11 weigh in! I don’t have an excuse for my week leading up to vacation, but on vacation I definitely didn’t have a scale. I did so much walking over my vacation, so I’m curious to see if that makes any difference when it comes to my weigh-in. We are about to find out… WEDNESDAY WEIGH IN: WEEK ELEVEN Starting weight at end of Week 8 244lbs — Current weight 249lbs — Weight loss or gain +5lbs…. ouch. — What attributed to my loss or gain?…

    Wednesday Weigh In: Week 4

    I’ve gained a lot of weight over the last few years. To be honest, my weight has always fluctuated. When I was a kid (and I’m talking like, a youngin), I was small. Probably from running around like nobody’s business. Going into middle school, and into high school, I started gaining more weight. That was aroun the peak of my anxiety issues, and I’m not surprised that I gained the weight that I did. I wasn’t doing anything. For part of middle school I was homeschooled, and going into high school the thought of gym glass made me so damn nervous that they were able to sub out that required credit…

    Thursday Weigh In: Week 3

    I wanted to stay consistent in my scale – so this week’s weigh in is coming a day late. I was out of town for a few days visiting my best friend who lives just outside of Ottawa, Ontario. It was a short but much needed visit. My little nephew has grown so much since I saw him last a few months ago, and it’s crazy how quick toddlers grow. This past week, I have felt like I’ve failed myself. I’ve been eating like crap, drinking, and just not being the best version of myself. I haven’t hit the gym, and my diet? Well, I haven’t been doing the best.…

    Wednesday Weigh In: Week 1

    HAPPY HUMP DAY! Last night/this morning marked the end of the first week of my Wednesday Weigh In challenge. Despite thinking that it wasn’t going to go very well, I’d like to think it was a bit of a success. It’s a bit daunting to be revealing my weight on the internet – but I’ve gotten some great positive feedback saying how brave I am, and how courageous I am. I’m holding onto that and pushing any overwhelming feelings to the side and just embracing it. I’m not ashamed of my body. I’m not ashamed of my weight. I’m ashamed that I’m out of shape. Should I be at the weight…

    Wednesday Weigh In: The Beginning

    August has been a lot busier than I intended for it to be. I feel like I left all of my summer for the last month, and have been busy every weekend. And, not to mention, even busy during the week. I took a week off from work, went away for a weekend, celebrated birthdays, and spent some time with friends. It’s been crazy busy, and now it’s time to get my head on straight. On Monday I got an e-mail – from my personal trainer (shout out to Colin if he ever reads this!) – which made me feel quite… disappointed in myself. I haven’t been being hard enough…

    Oh My Goals!

    I had all of these "resolutions" I wanted to make for 2018, and had plans set to get myself a personal trainer in January. Then, this idiot self of mine stepped off a curb in early January and twisted my ankle. Yes, you read that right. I stepped off a curb. Off a curb. And twisted my ankle. I blamed the fact that I'm fat. Even though it had nothing to do with it.
