Weigh In Wednesday: Working Out in the Kitchen and Gym

How many Weigh In Wednesdays have we gone through now? It’s 11:10 pm, but I’ve started to feel comfortable in my own skin again. To be honest, I haven’t weighed myself in two weeks. If you didn’t know, I had this consistant feeling of being 300 lbs and now I feel it less often. But weighing myself is still a touchy subject for me.I’ve been working very hard to keep constant with dieting (intermittent fasting and 5:2 diet), working out, and drinking water.

Intermittent Fasting

I struggle with my weight since I was younger. I confessed to a friend yesterday night that when I see myself in the mirror I don’t see myself. I see a 300-lb girl staring back at me and she told me that that’s a mental issue and not a physical issue. But when I started to think about it, the problem is still the same.  Simply put I’m just not happy at my weight. Maybe you are someone who feels the same? I just want to let you know you aren’t alone.I’m a 5’3 girl and being 150 is not my ideal weight, especially when your boyfriend is 5’7 and a stick figure. The problem I face is, we workout the same amounts (me a little less because I’m in school) and we eat the same (especially on…
