After a humbling weekend, this thread is nice ego-booster for a skinny person such as myself. ;)
I agree with your sentiment. I truly am ashamed at what I allowed myself to become over the last nine or so years. It is absolutely ridiculous that I ballooned to the weight I did and that I was this close to being one of those fatties you see riding the courtesy cart in the store because I was incapable of walking around a big box store for a few items. I have however incorporated that shame into strength. I began joking about my weight a few months ago, and denigrating and insulting myself because no one else was doing me the favor. I embraced this sh
it and used it to motivate. Now I just need to stick with it. Can't wait to weigh myself tomorrow morning and see what I've lost over the last week. I already have additional plans to include a more thorough weight training regimen into my routine three times a week. I just need to work out a good rep/exercise plan to minimize rest between sets to ensure I am also getting additional aerobic benefit.
I didn't say so before but I wish everyone success on their journey, wherever that may be at this time. Edited, Aug 21st 2012 12:19am by Paskil
