Anti-Hambeast Campaign

Posted by Kate on 2:39 PM
Now before you flip out on me with "EVERYONE IS BEAUTIFUL IN THEIR OWN WAY" and "STICKS ARE UGLY CURVES ARE BEAUTIFUL!" Let me say this:
zSHARE - whuteva.mp3

So anyway, I'm starting a separate blog just for myself, really. I'm not even going to lie. I'm a big ol' girl. In high school I was a good looking kid but now, ten years later, I'm looking pretty rough. I'm just sick and tired of it so I've been making changes. The Anti-hambeast Campaign is just a documentation of my weight loss journey. I'm giving myself two years to get to my ideal weight. Two years seems like a long time but I want to make life style changes and embed them into my persona so deep that it would take years of regression therapy to make me fat again. I really want to be in the best shape of my life by the time I hit the big 30 so when I'm bawwwwing because I'm thirty, at least I can say "I be lookin' good."

I just wanted to put that out there. Probably more for myself because if I publicly say I'm going to do something, I'm more likely to do it because I don't want to have to go back and say, "oops."

Woo! It's always good to say "I want and deserve better than this!" I've been on a weightloss journey for a few years now. I lost weight on Body for Life, then gained it back because of lazyness, then I started again in April, and I'm currently about 20lbs away from my goal weight (currently 140, goal is 120)

It's definitely a good idea to give yourself plenty of time - you'll get there when you get there.

I definitely recommend taking progress pics starting today - it's a really good motivator.

(Sorry in advance - a little TMI)
I've been going through a rough patch recently - my stomach has been acting really weird and I started taking over-the-counter stuff for it without really thinking about it and all of a sudden it's a month later and I can't "go" at all, no matter what I take and I'm a little scared and I might need to see a doctor.

So def make sure you do your research, talk to people, read up on stuff, ask around, and you'll get there eventually!

(I actually do recommend Body for Life - it's very motivating and pretty sound methodology!)

I've been thinking about doing something similar to this. Except more with like...increasingly less embarrassing photos, so people can shame me into putting down the fork.

I also have this swimsuit that I got that I can barely squeeze into right now that would be a decent shame indicator...hahaha...

We should make weekly update threads or something XD.

@yllsa- I think I'll take my first progress pic tomorrow since i'll be in some wonky costume for school. lol As for your "situation" I think you should definitely go see a doctor. My mom messed her "plumbing" up one time and now she has half her small intestine. my stepdad has half his large intestine so between the two of them they have a whole set. XD

@Nostalgist- I need to print out a picture of that one dude from the water boy with the caption "YOU CAN DO EET!!" and put it on my fridge.

@A&H- Me too! :D

@ Lallafa- I agree! we would do update threads. Maybe I'll make the anti-hambeast campaign open to where anyone can post.

I must admit, when I read the title I was a bit apprehensive about the content to follow XD

Good for you on wanting to make a change to improve yourself! It's sad when I see people moping about it but aren't bothered to something. I wish you the best! I'm looking forward to seeing this work out for you :)

As a big girl myself, I'm all for the anti hambeast campaign. :3 That's one of my goals too: lose weight.
Congratz on the determination!

That's the spirit! I could lose a few pounds myself, too. Not because I overeat, but because I spend all day in front of a computer :(
