day eleven - your favorite blog, and why.
i really like yoga-body.
the posts are really diverse. like, not just pictures of foods, or just picture of thin girls, or just pictures of workout. it’s a good mix. plus she really seems to know her stuff. she’s good at giving advice, and she’s just really nice when people ask advice.
that’s the first one that came to mind, but i have a lot of favorites. obviously if it’s blog i follow, i enjoy it for one reason or another. :)
day ten - what is the hardest thing you’ve given up during this lifestyle change?
fast food! omg, i seriously used to eat fast food all the time. like, if i was ever too lazy to cook or look for food or something, i would go drive through somewhere and bring something home.
like, i also gave up meat and became a vegetarian with the start of my lifestyle change, and giving up meat isn’t even that hard, because i never really cooked meat to begin with. it’s just hard since i live alone, and i’m not that good of a cook.
so i only ever ate meat really, when i would go out to eat or get fast food. so since i gave up meat, it automatically means that i give up fast food.
and i don’t even necessarily miss the meat, more of just the fast food aspect of it all.
like taco bell was my favoriteeee. and chick-fil-a breakfast, ugh.
day nine - have people ever made comments about your weight in a negative way?
yeah..i mean, not really like flat out “you’re fat” or anything like that, but my mom has always been on my back about losing weight and eating healthy. we’re built completely different, so she’s small and petite, and i’m not. so i think she thinks that makes me too big, or something. i don’t know. but yeah, she’s always said things like that, but never in a way where she’s trying to hurt me. it’s more of a, “i care about you and i just want you to be healthy” kind of stuff.
but my grandma is very outspoken and in like, makes really rude under-her-breath comments. like i’ll hear her ask my mom if i’ve gained weight. or she’ll hug me and tell me that i feel bigger. stuff like that.
day eight - your workout routine
wooo, go HERE and see my workout routines. c:
day seven - do people know you’re trying to lose weight? do they care?
yeah, people know that i’m trying to be healthier. maybe not necessarily that i’m trying to lose weight.
well my mom and my friend sarah know i’m actually trying to lose weight.
but everyone that knows is really supportive, so that’s really nice. :)
day six - do you binge? if so, explain why you think you do.
**i’ve missed so many days of this, so i’m just gonna keep going from where i left off without making up all the days.
um, i don’t really binge. i used to, and i think it’s because i used to cut all bad things out of my diet, which i would then CRAVE them so bad. and then i would eat way too much of it when i would finally get some of it.
like, you can have things that aren’t 100% good for you as long as you have them in moderation, and as long as you get the taste of the sweet/salty/whatever, then you’re body is satisfied, and that will keep you from binging.
but if you cut everything sweet/salty/whatever from your diet and never allow yourself to have it occasionally, then you’re going to start craving it and you’re going to go overboard when you do eat it.
so, EVERYTHING IN MODERATION. that’s how you keep yourself from binging.
day five - why do you really want to lose weight?
i’m really self conscious. i feel like i never look good in clothes because of my weight, and all my friends are small, so i just feel so big next to them.
also, i just want to be healthy. i used to eat the shittiest foods, and i smoked, and i barely drank water. so aside from getting thin, i just want to be healthy.
and i want to be fit. going to the gym has already helped, i can tell. because my legs are killing me. which means that i’m using muscles that didn’t get much use before.
i just want to be thin, but at the same time be in shape, and over all, i just want to be healthy.
day four - your greatest fears about weight loss.
MAINTAINING! i’m so nervous that as soon as i hit my goal weight, i’m gonna be like “fuck yeah, see ya lifestyle!” and it’s all just gonna come back. so hopefully i can maintain.
and i’m just nervous about keeping up with everything i’ve been doing lately once i get a roommate. i’m living in my apartment alone this summer, but in august, my friend is moving in. and it’s so easy to make what you want for lunch/dinner and count calories when you’re alone. but with another person living with you (who probably has the fastest metabolism in the world and never has to work out), it’s gonna get hard. :(
i’m also just scared that i won’t be able to do it, in general.
day three - a picture of your inspiration. what features do you like about this person?
i don’t have like, a set person who is my thinsperation. but i do have this:
i guess what i like about all those girls is that they are thin, but they look fit, as well. they’re not skin and bones, so it doesn’t look like the achieved that with an ED. they still have curves, but they have a flat stomach and toned arms/legs.
day two - how tall are you? do you like your height?
i am 5’10, but probably close to 5’11.
NO, i hate my height. it’s seriously so hard being this tall because it’s hard to find clothes that fit. especially since i have long legs and a short torso. also, it sucks because tall guys like short girls. if the guy is even taller than me to begin with, ha.
but the one nice thing about being tall is that you would never guess i weigh around 180. because there’s so many places to put the weight, i look proportionate and i don’t look like i weigh as much as i do. now, if i was 5’5, weighing 180 pounds, you would be able to notice it a lot more.
so there are pros and cons. but i can’t change my height, so it doesn’t really matter. c:
