#FatGirlsStory Week 2 -- You weigh how much? and Author Updates

Image
Y'all I've had a long week! No joking! It's been the type of week you want to crawl into bed and never leave, with a bottle of wine next to you.


Yep, just like that.
However, there have been high points! So, let's start there,
I exercised everyday last week. This is what I did:
8 miles on stationary bike 3 miles on the elliptical 5 miles on treadmill 50 sit ups 250 stairs on stair master (not in a row! but the whole week) 100 squats (I really did 100 I didn't count the ones I only half squatted)
All in all it was a good week!

Now, onto the BIG QUESTION......
How much weight have I lost?
So, last week I weigh 285.  I know...I'm big...I got it!  I don't need anyone to comment and remind me.  I own a mirror!
I weighed myself this morning and I am ........

wait for it............
wait.............

280!!!


I'm so proud of me!  I know 5 lbs isn't a ton, but you have to start somewhere and I have to go slow.  I don't want to drop a real fast and put it back on.

Fat Girl's Story: Week 1 - Ripping off the Band-Aid

Image
Last week I started a blog-journey called Fat Girl's Story and I put a line in there about 'ripping off the band-aid'. 
Well, I received a message stating I should be truly honest with everyone. I asked the person what did she mean. She stated if I was going to be honest with everyone I should divulge all the information about myself. 
I did say I wouldn't do that, but she made a point.
But I want to yell....... I DONT WAN TO TELL YOU EVERYTHING!!


Then again....


I said I would tell the truth ... so here it is
Hello, My name is Mary Smith and I'm 35 years old and I'm 285 pounds. I went 26/28 jeans and 5x shirts.

Yep, it's the truth. I'm THAT big.
FYI: this is probably the craziest thing I've ever done. Sure you can look at me and you know I'm overweight. There's no mirage here.
However, telling people my actually weight (besides my doctor) is something I've never EVER EVER done.
But here it is. Well, here I am and I'm putting it all out there. …

Fat Girl's Story: The Beginning

Image
I have been overweight my whole life. I've always been that girl. However, it's never bothered me.

Until now...

I'm 35!




I Know RIGHT! It's scary!

However, it's time for a change




I have stopped eating the four main meats (beef, chicken, pork, and turkey). I do occasionally eat seafood and I still eat dairy. So, please don't call me a vegetarian or vegan, because I'm not either of those.




Nonetheless, I'm now eating healthy, And an occasional cheat day.



So on Monday I took a huge leap off a cliff. Okay not literally; however, I did something I'd never thought I would do.

I joined a gym, And  ... and .... and hired a trainer......

Are you shocked? Trust me I am! Because if you know anything about me is that I hate to sweat and I hate to exercise.



Nonetheless, I have exercised for two days now and I'm still breathing.

Barely....



So, I'm telling you this because I'm going to be documenting everything I do. Yep, I'm exposing myself via the internet. No…
