Losing 410 lbs without surgery

That's exactly what Tammey Burns did! With a healthy diet and exercise routine, she actually lost over 400 lbs! At her highest (575 lbs) she wouldnt go to the movies because she wouldnt fit in the seats and she needed family members to help her with personal hygene. At 403 lbs she still had breathing problems so severe that she needed to get a tracheotomy. But instead of giving up, she joined a fitness center and worked with walking coach. Instead of viewing food as a drug, she saw it as fuel.
 Anyways, is it just me or are the guys on the show total assholes?

#762 The moment at a restaurant after you see your food coming from the kitchen and before it lands on your table.

#765 Thinking it’s Thursday when it’s Friday.

#771 Waking up before your alarm clock and realizing you’ve got lots of sleep time left.

#780 Squeezing through a door as it’s shutting without touching it.

Don't talk to me about dieting. Don't talk to me about exercise. I don't know what bug bit me but I've been a total slack off. I'm not talking about "oh I'm only losing 1lb a week, I'm such a slack off". No, I'm talking about gaining weight and not feeling like doing shit about it. I keep saying that tomorrow I'll go work out but I just end up in the couch playing wii. And not even wii fit or wii sports. Nope. I got my ass in gear alright. Just in the wrong direction :(

Shopping Woes

I went to Macy's today to spend a gift card I got for my birthday and everything was so small and expensive. And I, I'm so big and broke. In the end I settled for some makeup cause, doesnt come in sizes :)

I feel like I've been lazy. I've been lazy with my diet, with my writing, and this blog. Sure, I'm not gaining weight but I'm not really giving it my all. Also, I talk so much about being a writer and what not but I haven't exactly been doing a lot of writing lately. I've just been scraping by. But no longer! Things are gonna change!

every girl needs a fat friend?

I recently read an article somewhere (can't remember where) that said that said a couple of interesting things:

  • The author mentioned that any slim woman will look much beautiful when she is next to a fat friend.
  • Therefore, when woman needs a confidence boost, she goes out with fat friend. One example will be celebrities themselves. Instead of hanging out with other celebrity friends are gorgeous, they always go out with other normal fat friends.
  • Some women prefer to go shopping with fat friends. They feel better when they buy size 10 while their fat friends are struggling with a 16.
  • Furthermore, clubbing together with fat friend will make sure the pretty girls have no competition in picking up guys. All the eyes will be on you and you can always have a peace of mind that someone is watching your drink and handbag.
I'm this true? Is that what women think and feel about their overweight friends? Yeah, I hope not.

One of my friends said my body is huge. Even though I don't think he meant stung like a bitch. I had never really thought of my body as HUGE. Huge is an evil word. I must destroy it.

Valentine's day is just a holiday for people to rub in how awesome theyre love lives are compared to yours.

By the way, does anyone else use twitter? its sort of like facebook minus the whole social networking thing. As in, its just like a status updater thing...except a billion times more addictive.

Anyways if you do feel free to follow me:

Guess who's back?

I have returned!! So after dealing with plenty of personal, family, and academic troubles...I'm back! Sadly I have to admit that my diet took a back seat these holidays. Oh bother. But the important thing is that I'm back and ready to keep going full force. I've missed all of you and I hope you've been doing better than me!! Love you guys!

I'll probably write a bit later to explain the details of everything that's happened
