Welcome!

PriorFatGirl is a community of writers who share their healthiness journey with you, our friends. Currently, posts on the main page are written by Liz who is fighting through her healthiness journey (and winning!) You can read other priorfatgirl journeys by clicking on the “Other priorfatgirl’s” drop down from the top menu.

Through the ups and downs of life, the scale, and emotions, we share our stories as a form of therapy for us, and as a way to help remove stigmas associated with trying to live up to social expectations of being perfect. We will not ever promise to be perfect, but we will promise to share candidly our journeys of learning how to be healthy in an unhealthy world, sugar coating not included.

 

Late weigh in…

Since I didn’t weigh in on Friday, I did this morning. And for the THIRD week in a row, I weighed in at 215.8. Exact maintain. I’m okay with that. Hell, it’s A LOT better than gaining!

This is all just part of my journey. Ups and downs and stay-the-sames. Maybe we’ll see a loss next week…? That would be GREAT. But me…? I’m guessing not. Week before TOM, next week. I always gain. Maybe I’ll surprise myself. :)

So, plus zero pounds, minus zero pounds. At least my pants are looser! Woo hoo!

Have a fabulous rest-of-the-weekend! See you lovelies on Monday! xoxo!

Don’t believe the scale

I need someone to beat this into my head.
Over.
And Over.
And Over. Again.
Sometimes I wonder what it’s gonna take to really actually truly honestly believe that the scale lies, that the scale doesn’t really say what is happening with our body. For as many calories and minutes on the elliptical/treadmill/stair.machine.of.death I count, something should be happening dammit!
And then….a friend sends me this ray of hope.
A clarifying in yer face kind of reasoning that seems to put me at ease.
Read it and remind yourself that the scale LIES!
