Joined The Gym!!


In a few weeks from now it will be a year since I last attended my weekly Zumba class or attended AquaTone.

Actually writing that sentence above fills me with great sadness…

Post weight loss surgery exercise was a fundemental driving force for improving my overall fitness. I was focussed and committed as I continued to lose those pounds and as a result I felt GRREAT!!

However, Zumba stopped for the summer holiday. I tried a session elsewhere and didnt like it. I was use to my Zumba teacher, loved the music, her style, the way she kept us motivated with her smile and cracking sense of humour. I decided to wait until September for her return but as you guessed it.. I never went back.

So here I am. I have joined http://www.puregym.com. Completed my induction with one of the trainers this week and boy I really struggled :-(.

My plan is to build up my level of fitness and kick start my weight loss. They offer a vast number of studio classes including Zumba and there is an extensive variety of exercise equipment to chose from. Most importantly they open 24/7 so I can fit exercise into any part of my busy life style. I have booked myself in to start a 6 week programme called PureLoser, it starts on the 30th July.

So here it goes….

“I can do this!”

Compliments!!


I came out of a room into the corridor at work today when this voice behind me said ‘you dont half look small from the back Mitzi!’

It was one of the staff Jules. She complimented me on how good I was looking and asked me what size clothes I was wearing and how much I weighed now. When I told her she was like, ‘your catching me up girl, if you lose anymore I’m gona have to go on a diet’  she gave me a huge hug and then we went for lunch to share some of the  pumpkin soup one of the other girls had made 🙂

Really made me beam, gota learn to do that more.

Its funny though, when compliments come my way I still struggle with them.

After years of being big I still see a big person looking back at me in the mirror.

Only took a few words but Jules brought some sunshine into a week of high blood pressure and constant headaches.

Fat Friends


Within my close circle of BBW (Big Beautiful Women) friends I am the one that has taken steps to address my weight issues and have weight loss surgery.

I confided in 2 of them prior to my operation as I did not want to be judged!

It must of been the shock!
The response was a real mixed bag ranging from
‘oh, you can die from that.
‘ you don’t need it doing.’
‘ your not big’
‘ your cheating’
‘ its not for me that!!’.
To list just a few.

I am now 13 months post op and its lovely to get the compliments as my friends see the ‘Heffa’ transforming.
But each time we meet I dread the conversations because I don’t really want to talk about my journey with them.

I know its not for them and I don’t really want to force the issue. They don’t really understand because they are ‘apparently’ happy with their size and don’t want to make any lifestyle changes.

So Saturday, the booze is flowing,

BTW I have a new love for Vodka! 🙂
.
Anyway, we’re gassing and one of the girls is like
‘ I can’t believe you have lost all that weight and you don’t have any wrinkles on your face?’
Wanna see wrinkles – I showed her my tits!! Stopped short of showing her my inner thighs and bingo wings thou – public place en all.

Then there’s the awkward moment when someone says
‘ the problem with people that have WLS is.. I don’t mean you Mitz..
ooooops.

It’s not the same anymore….

The conversation then gets a bit tense … And I start to feel increasingly conscious of the fact that no longer am I the biggest in the pack anymore but indeed the smallest…

Cheesy Grin :-D!!

Then I feel guilty!!
