The "Fitness Fantasy"


MOM. Mom On A Mission!

I thought I'd share the beginning of my journey. I've done this a few times and quit after the first day. Today is my 2nd day, so I'm doing 100% better than before! I have always struggled with my weight and appearance. I'm not HUGE, but I do have some extra. I've found my soul mate and have had 2 kids, so some weight has been put on.The last two months, I've gotten EXTREMELY depressed about my weight and how I look.

I’m frustrated. I’m upset. And I’m angry at myself.I know. It sounds harsh. But I think it’s time to be a bit harsh on myself.I’m really struggling to lose weight.

Weight Loss: The Breeze Between My Knees

I was walking down the grocery store aisle when the airy truth hit me: my thighs no longer rub together when I move. I’m not sure exactly when it happened, but after my upper legs were practically Siamese twins in fat and friction for decades, I wasn’t arguing. I was, however, about to topple head-first into the fruit juice display because I was so focused on how I was walking that I suddenly couldn’t walk because I was paying too much attention to it....more

You are Not Your Sister (or Your Brother for that Matter)

It seems that when it comes to weight we are always trying to find a reason for our extra poundage. Time and time again you hear “I’ve just got bad genes”. Maybe you think because you come from an overweight family that obesity is “in your genes”.
