If you have issues, or baggage, you may be offended by what you read here. I work through my self loathing of my own fat, and my own fat issues, and I’m told this comes across as loathing all fat people. That is simply not the case.

Here I talk about my issues and my findings, without political correctness. I am not concerned with your issues, or your baggage, or what you may take from this. The title is "My Journey".

This blog is not meant to inspire anyone. I take no responsibility for what you take away from here. You are here as a guest into my inner thoughts.

Weigh In


Down .6lbs and I'm struggling with my IGGness (Instant Gratification Girl). I actually considered doing another WI tomorrow, in hopes it would be lower. Then, after thinking about it for a couple of hours, I realized that if I don't own this small loss, then I'm talking out my ass a couple of posts below.

It is within the healthy weight loss range, and helps me to, statistically speaking, have better odds of keeping it off.

There, I said it. I owned it. It's mine. Dammit.

I'm on day 19 of being completely OP. I've started running again. I'm in the middle of my month cycle so nowhere near TOM. I cannot explain why my loss is so little. I'm going to let it go now. I've owned it, so it's mine to let go. RIGHT???? (dammit)

Off to Costco for more vitamins. I think I'm going to switch up my flax seed oil capsules for fish oil capsules.

Thanks for listening,

Good for you on the .6 loss. You owned it and will keep on going. I can't do the fish oil capsules....good luck on that too LOL.
I am owning my 3 lb gain this week sadly!

Yay for the loss...a loss is a loss, be happy with the progress made!
Thanks for the suggestions to Costco. I actually picked up the pkg of portobello mushrooms and put them back down. I think next time I'll dare to take an adventure with them.

oh Instant Gratification Girl!!! LMAO....i hear ya girl! But, you are OP, you are treating your body like a temple and....I predict your next WI will reflect that and be awesome! Keep on keepin on and it is going to show... just step back and look at how far you've come - you rock lady! xoxo

We have to own any loss or gain no matter what. Congrats on it being a loss!

Great job, Dee! Hey, it all adds up, so be glad with it! You're doing all the right things to be healthy which is the MOST important thing no matter what the scale says :)

Kick IGG ass out the door ;)

Thanks for the support everyone. Side note: I stepped on the scale this morning... it showed at 146.8... giving a one pound loss would have been nicer!

Kari: You haven't had portobellos? DUDE!! SO good! I literally sautee in a little water, then eat like a burger. I melt some tasty asiago or romano on top, use tomato and lettuce... yum!

OR, I'll put a tablespoon of salsa on them, topped with cheese, and bake them in the oven.

Or top a sauteed mushroom with scrambled eggs and canadian bacon, and a squirt of ketchup. SO good!
