Just what I needed

Do you like when people notice your loss? Or does it bother you?

I ran into a guy I hadn't seen since I've lost weight the other day when I was feeling particularly craptastic about a 2 lb gain. When he saw me he looked shocked, and said, "You look fucking AMAZING!" Like three times, ha. That day I was feeling so down on myself, it really helped, and now I've passed the 3 days on plan point and am on day 4, which means I'm officially back on the perfectly on plan track.

I know some people hate being noticed, but I must say it made me feel like people, whether they say anything or not, have to be noticing by now.

On plan and at the gym:

I went to the gym yesterday for 45 mins. I'm going again on Tuesday and Thursday. I'm doing a liquid fast today. Protein drinks and fresh juice. Just for today though. Next week I will try and do two days. I just need to buy more fruit and veggies. But I should be able to get by with carrots and apples for just today.

How is everyone else doing? I've been trying to catch up on some blogs and have noticed people struggling all around the same time. Hope everyone is picking back up now too! :)


  1. :) It's so great when people notice without prompting. I was always disappointed when people didn't notice but my sister says people are just being polite and nervous about mentioning it. It was only when it was seriously noticeable that people blurted it out before they could censor themselves!

    Have a wonderful week! Great job planning your workouts :)

  2. Enjoy your liquid day!

    I used to hate when people noticed, but now I like it. Other than the person who was a total clod and said that he thought it was great I was doing so well because most obese people don't make an effort like I am. Ummmm...yeah. That pissed me right off.

    I have been struggling too sometimes, I admit, but hopefully will be fully back on track soon. I don't go seriously over my calories, and I certainly don't do it every day, but I want to get back to eating mid-range consistently again.

  3. I'm so glad you are back on track. I have been struggling big time the past few weeks and am starting to get back on track myself.

    PS - I like it when people notice I have lost weight. ;)

  4. safire, that's true some people think it's rude. Cuz it makes it sound like you looked bad before if they say how great you look now. ;)

    renee, that is horrible, people are so rude. Hope you're eating is going well!

    135, thanks, I feel ya it's been hard, I'm so ridiculous starting my day with carbs, it was a total slip up I didn't see coming what would happen! Annoying. :(

    and yeah it's nice eh? I ran into friends the other day that I hadn't seen in a yearand they were so shocked, it was cool. :)

How Intuitive eating (did not) work for me

So I have spent roughly the last year and a half or more trying to lose weight by eating intuitively. I'm not really great at it. I have lost 30 lbs in a year and a half, it's moving at such a snails pace that I have finally decided that the only thing that works for me is tracking, and even though in my head I know I won't possibly do it forever, I have to go back to it.

So, Joey and I are tracking again, so far so good. It's only been a few days, but it at least hasn't been a struggle. I figure we will stay where we are calorie wise and after about a month and hopefully some loss (not being too focused on the scale though, it's been my downfall in the past) we can reduce our calories a little bit at a time.

I know this is the right thing to do, but I feel kind of down that I did so poorly with intuitive eating. Then again I probably wouldn't be fat if I were good at that sort of thing. :P Here's to being "On Plan." :D

Also, my job has finall…

I Was a Fat Bride

Our wedding pictures are the first thing you see when you walk into our home. 

Joey and I have been together for over 22 years. We've both gained and lost a lot of weight over the course of our relationship. Then we regained, and re-lost, you know how it goes. We got married on our 19 year anniversary, which is in March.  We had decided to get married just four months prior. So after what our friends teased was a 'brief 19 year courtship", we decided to just go ahead and do it. I know there are a million blogs and articles about losing weight for your wedding. This is not one of them. I had four months to lose weight. I don't really even remember what was going on, but I had NO desire to diet or attempt to lose weight and so I just...didn't. Joey lost a bit of weight so he could wear that fancy vest. I appreciate the effort, he looked handsome in it. :)

We thought we would never get married. We didn't see the point, we kind of still don't, and luckily, be…

Flying While Fat

"I'm scared of flying while fat," I told my friends when I was planning a trip from Pittsburgh to Denver in October of 2016. It was to be my first time on a plane, and I had heard all about Kevin Smith's problems with Southwest Airlines. There is the obvious fear of my ample hips spreading into the seat next to me, and some poor unsuspecting fellow passenger being assaulted by my fat spilling onto them. The fear of being told to buy a second seat, that I probably couldn't comfortably afford was real. Should I buy a second seat to begin with? I did decide to spring for the slightly larger seats in the front on a Frontier Airlines flight.

The anxiety leading up to the trip was palpable. I scoured the internet for stories about people's experiences of flying while fat. People who felt as if they had been crammed into a sardine can, pictures of squished thighs and disgusted and disgruntled fellow passengers, offended by the amount of space their fat fellow passen…
