Getting Healthy - Weight Loss

Sexy, curvy, healthy is the plan!
For those of you who would rather not read about weight loss and yet another gal's struggle to lose weight and get healthy, I would recommend clicking away from this page now.

This is not going to turn into another weight loss blog and I have no intention of shoving diets or related products down your throat or lecturing you on your size or your health. Homey don't play that. This is about my own quest to get healthy after a dose of scary reality about my own personal risk of developing breast cancer based on my family history and the connection that my weight plays in this.

I haven't yet decided what approach/plan I will take and I am open to trying different things if anyone has any suggestions. I still believe in my tagline that I should be allowed to have my cake and eat it too, just maybe less of it from here on! What I do know is that I will be using the blog to help keep me accountable so that I follow through and I hope that those of you who do want to follow along will offer up support to keep me going. I love food and am under loads of stress so I'll need all the help and encouragement I can get!

I should warn y'all now that there will be heaps of cursing going on. I mean, I live in Canada and it's been anywhere from -11c to -29c lately-- not ideal walking/running weather and certainly not the kind of weather that inspires one to spring out of bed to hit the gym before the sun's come out. Potty mouth will prevail even in my honest attempt at keeping it clean. There's gonna be a whole lotta' bitchin' goin' on! To offer you a little incentive to stick around, I will also be posting embarrassing photos and even videos as I go along and when possible will also throw in some related giveaways along with those that I will continue to host on the main page of the site.

Wish me luck!

    Good for you for making the choice to get healthy. Your readers will support you and if they don't who cares as long as you get healthy and take care of yourself. I am trying to do the same and worry about my fatshion blog losing people because of my weight loss.

    You should totally try Nurtisystem or Jenny Craig! Try becoming one of their bloggers. They keep getting these skinny bloggers to try their program for free instead of giving it to big girls that have weight to lose. It pisses me off! Especially that #NSNation program that I keep seeing on skinny girl blogs and blogs that don't have any relation to fat or diet or anything.

  7. Jolly - OMG! I have been trying to get into the Nutrisystem bloggers program but so far no luck! I have to agree with you about the skinny bloggers and the types of blogs they've been accepting. I hope they take me! Maybe you should write to them and recommend me! *winks*

    Thanks for the encouragement ladies!

    Try weight watchers. I did it online but found I really needed the meetings to keep motivated.

    Don't use diet pills or ephedrine for weight loss. It almost killed me. Do it healthy on your own or with like nutrasystem or jeny craig or something like that.

    Lots of diet tips online if you are planning to try to lose weight at home with no help.

    I hope they accpet you for the Nurtisystem NS Nation blogger program. You would be so great at it and I'd rather follow you than some skinny mom blogger who blogs about coupons. Lols

  22. Rubeka - Did the diet pill/epdedrine thing when I was young and didn't know better and it was a nightmare. Not that stupid anymore, thankfully.

    Alice - I know there are a lot of diet tips online as I am often paid to write similar content as a writer. I know it all but have a hard time following it. Need something a little more structured -- at least at first. I know myself well ;)

    Silvia - I just emailed you back.

    Lissy - Weight Watchers could be good but I wouldn't do it online. I'd need the motivation of meetings and a regular way in...though weighing in here with you all watching could definitely help keep me on track.

    Have you tried Bernstein diet? They are in Canada.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Don't try Bernstein! Such a waste because if you want to starve yourself you can do that without paying the tons of money. EVERYONE I know who has done it including me has gained the weight back. Its unhealthy and you eat around 700 calories a day. It cant be good for you stay away from Bernstein diet!

    Can I make a suggestion? I would really like to see more personal pictures and videos. I hope you'll include more of them as you go along in your journey to get healthy. It's inspiring.

    You need to write more stuff for Healthline.com. Your column on depression pretty much covered how I was feeling a lot of the time. I noticed you haven't written for them in a couple months and miss your stuff.

    hi. nice one.

    ReplyDelete
  38. -Thanks Linda! Don't think they'll be bringing back the blog but I did recently write 3 articles for them...on men's health though.

    -Alira, I will start posting more pics of myself shortly though most will likely be under my diet section as I (hopefully) lose weight.

    Lilly - I would never do Bernstein! Everyone who has been on it seems to gain it back and I would never pay someone that much to starve me.

    Thanks to all for the encouragement! I really appreciate it! xo
