I know that I’m fat. This is no secret. It’s amazing how much clothing can hide when you’re a fat girl. I feel like I look okay with clothes on (and sometimes I find something that makes me feel like I look pretty good, actually). But then I had a bit of a reality check this week when I looked at myself in the mirror without clothes.
I’ve known for a while that my weight corresponds to some of the women that show up on Biggest Loser. I’m on the low end of the weight class that can be cast for the show, but still – my body looks like a lot of the women who stand on that scale the first time. I just, for whatever reason, didn’t associate that I was in the same place that these women are before they lose the weight. And now that I have, it’s been the kick in the pants I need to get back to where I was actually losing weight and working out more.
So I’m getting back on track – for real this time. This is the kick in the ass I needed. I’m going to get back to the gym, figure out what to do for strength training, and burn the hell out of some calories. I can’t deny the obvious truth that losing more weight will help with my hip more, not to mention it will get me back to where I’m in a healthier body.
