How have you guys been...haven't been making my rounds as of late.
I am really missing out.
I should be back up to full speed by tomorrow night.
I went to the gym, I did an hour on Arnold...and I ate 1560 calories.
I burned 720 and did 200 situps.
I would say that would put my burn in at at least 750
If my bmr is on average 1750 (I weigh around 175)
And I eat 1560....(leaving me with a 190 calorie deficit food wise)
And I burn 750 calories on top of that....
That puts my total deficit in at 940.
I am going to keep a post of that kind of record every day for the next two weeks and see if the weight equals my calculations....verrrrry interesting.
Now for my title...
I have had a couple of 'strange' encounters with people.
Somehow weight loss comes up...I say I have lost nearly ninety pounds and they say...
"REALLY, I NEVER WOULD HAVE KNOWN...
"REALLY, I NEVER WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO TELL"
What do they think former fat people look like.
Did they think you would have 'former fat girl' inscribed on your forehead?"
Just a question.
Now, I still have forty pounds to go.
but still...it is by far the most irritating reaction.
I don't mind the
You look greats....(who WOULD mind? ;oP...)
I could even take the occasional "so, still a couple of pounds to go yet, ey's?"....
It makes you wonder.
Do they think you are supposed to look like a deflated jelly fish?
tonight...I am doing my situps. Before I start...these two ladies ask to share my mat...(It's more than big enough...so I say of course)
There is a whole boy scout pack doing pushups on the rest of the mats...must be some sort of mentoring program.
I am somewhere around 170 or so....situps that is....
These ladies are done...they get up and are standing there when one of them looks at me and says
"You look familiar...."
I say, I am here all the time...
She says "I live here too...lol."
Then she says "I've lost a hundred pounds."
I say "I've lost 90.'
She doesn't say...I never would have guessed it by looking at you....
she says "Awesome Job!", and bends down for a high five while I am on sit up 180 or so....
I give it, and say thanks, You too.
Maybe only former fat girls get it.
Kind of like Army wives and the phrase
"I don't know how you do it?"
Insinuating all sorts of things without really saying anything.
Thats all for now...Man are my cupboards ORGANIZED...LoL.
Hope all is well with you guys....
Tomorrow is girl scout meeting night...we earn a science in action badge.
Wish me luck...
Former fat Girl...
