Fat Rant

Check out this ladies fat rant on utube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUTJQIBI1oA. I wish I had her attitude. She's got some things figured out! I agree with a lot of what she says that being fat doesn't mean your lazy or dumb or a bad person. I got this from someone's web site and can't remember whose. I've been surfing and visiting too many sites! I wish I could just be happy with being fat but that ain't the case. The thing I'm trying to figure out now is why I took a break from the weight loss journey, why don't I just get hung ho like I was before and want it bad. I mean, I still want the thin, healthy, fit body but don't want to seem to do the hard work at the moment.


In other news, I went down to visit my uncle who has cancer yesterday. He lives about 2 hours away and we haven't been to see him in a long time. It was a good day and my son got to play with lots of cousins and the weather was awesome for once. We went out to see my cousin who is about my age as he moved back to his hometown and has a new house. They have quite the set up out there in the county. He lives about 1/2 mile from his brother and they use 4 wheelers to commute between the two and around his property. My son got to feed the fish in his little lake and jump on their trampoline and ride the quads with me. It was fun! When I was young I used to like to ride motor bikes with an old boyfriend and forgot the joy in doing that. I started to think of all the other things I used to enjoy that have fallen by the way side as I've gotten older and also as I've been a mother and sometimes my needs aren't top priority. Something to think about more. I know that I really miss adventure such as travel to far away places, scuba diving and anything with motor vehicles! I have a goal to try sky diving when I drop some more weight!! It will be a rush and I miss that feeling of doing something new or the sense of being in new or foreign places and meeting new people or just being underwater and at peace with nature and with life.



I think I will do a post about past scuba diving adventures and find some pictures and maybe some old pics of the old me that I left behind. She's hidden in this layer of fat somewhere and I'm trying to remember who that woman was. Will she ever come out of hiding?

Wow! You are a dare devil ! I could never sky dive... well not till I'm 89 and it wouldn't matter then if the parachute didn't open! And as for diving... I hold my breath when I see people doing it on the telly! So, nope, not me either. Hey I have put a question on my blog today, can you answer it?

I had horse back ride for years and ended up with my own horse when I was 11. Then sold them off when I was 29 after my mother died. I couldn't deal with them at the time plus gas was going up and I had moved them to grazing land 2 hrs away from home where I use to have them at the renting stables. I had dream one day to have them in my backyard but that never happen. I still love horses but I lost my passion for them after my mother died. So weird.

Gas is the killer of it all and I am already getting sick of my truck. I use to ride ATV's and enjoyed them but like everything else prices has there PINCH on things

Now if I can just find a roller coaster partner that would be awesome.

hi Angel,

i'm hearing you, sometimes i wish i could be comfy just being big but i really like even being 90kgs - which is still 15kgs o/w but i feel so good and look so much better and that's the point, so i can't just be happy being big.

sorry i haven't been able to comment, i'm hoping to log on at least once a week but know that i'm still reading! i like your blog, it is always real so keep up the good work.

Heya,

I had that video posted on my site, and I had found it on someone elses Blog also - I really enjoyed the video, she's right - just because the way you are is the way you are doesn't mean you should feel ashamed, or make yourself look horrible OR give up the things you like to do. You're still you, you still have wants and needs.. and therefore, the only way to be healthy, happy and do anything for yourself is to accept who you are right now, in this moment, and make the very best of that.

As for the scuba diving, I've always wanted to do that.. I'd love to hear about your experiences and also see pictures.
