Anyone guess it?

I'm a Future Prior Fat Girl, Working Towards A Prior Fat Girl.

I went to the One Breath, One Bite Event on Saturday.  I wasn't feeling very good at all, but couldn't miss it.  I'm so glad I went.  I'll be commenting about it all week because there was so much to share.  Stacy from KitchenWerks was back again and Paul, who is a nutritionist and fitness expert from Lifetime Fitness.

I left with that great feeling that I had after the last time.  Energized to reach new goals and inspired.

The acronym above?  Well Jen started selling t shirts and other items with her logo on them.  The shirts either said "I'm a prior fat girl, what are you?" or "Future prior fat girl, what's in your future?"  I wanted the first one.  I figured at 30+ pounds lost I deserved it.  Only the largest size was a large.  I told Carlos it wouldn't fit.  Jen was standing there and told me that it would.  So I went into the bathroom to try it out.  It fit in the torso, but my hips?  That's another story.  So I took it back and got the Future Prior Fat Girl shirt.

And you know what?  It's ok.  Maybe it's a sign that despite what I have accomplished, I still have further to go in my journey.  Maybe it's the push that I need to get into that smaller shirt?  Maybe it's my time to breathe and realize that I got into an XL, instead of a 2XL?  Maybe it's my reward to purchase the new shirt when I lose a bit more?

At any rate, it's ok.  It's my journey and I need to travel it fully and experience it fully.  I need to recognize and be happy with where I am at and at the same time know that I can go farther.

    Congrats on the 30 lb loss. That is definitely a accomplishment to be proud of.



  3. You will be in that L in no time... I am sure of it! Its all about baby steps!

  4. I was there on Saturday too and we had the same conversation with ourselves over the tshirts. At 38 pounds lost I thought I deserved the Prior Fat Girl shirt too but went with the Future one since I know I have about 25 more to go. But, I would like to say that we are both pretty darn awesome for having lost the first 30 - way to go!
    A fellow Future Prior Fat Girl!

    I gave you a "Stylish Blogger" award on my blog a couple of days ago! :)
