“I wish I were as thin as I was when I thought I was fat.”
I don’t know who said this, but it sums up my story with weight. My lowest weight as an adult was 122 for a very short period in college. Even then, I felt fat.
The last time I seriously lost weight was about five years ago. I did Weight Watchers Online and I ran. Weight Watchers was great for establishing healthy eating habits, providing accountability, and keeping my eye on the (calorie deficit) ball. Running was great for the sense of accomplishment it gave me, melting off the fat, and building sexy lower-body muscles. I lost about 25 pounds and got down into the recommended weight range for my height (but I still didn’t feel thin).
I’ve toyed with both the last few years as the weight crept back up, but I haven’t been committed to either program. I finally decided that Weight Watchers wasn’t working for me anymore and that I needed something different.
So, I’ve embarked on a lifestyle change. It’s not only about diet and weight-loss, but also it’s about being healthy and feeling good about myself. This blog is a chronicle of my journey to a healthier body, sexier muscles, and skinnier jeans. I may never feel thin, but I am becoming a fit chick.
