Guess who’s back, back again.
The Fat Kid’s back, tell your friends.
Sorry for the cheesy intro, I was just listening to the new Eminem song while on the elliptical and thinking about blogging again and that was the end result; it also came to me to do the blogging equivilent to a selfie and interview my bad self. (starting to wonder if it’s a good idea to think while exercising haha)
So…fat kid…where ya been?
Wellllll, I’ve been hiding on y’all because I didn’t just fall off the wagon, I couldn’t even find it to hop back on. I’m sure I can give you my mile long list of excuses (depressed, bored, hate myself, husband out of town working, two little ones at home blah blah blah) but I’m not going to because you have heard it all before…many times. What I will tell you though is I finally found my wagon, about 6 weeks ago and I hopped back on it and I’m doing fairly well.
What program are you doing THIS time fat kid?
I hear the sarcasm in your voice, and you’re right, I have hopped around trying to find something that really works for me. I’ve heard most smokers have to try and quit a bunch of times before they finally get it right…maybe that’s how it works for me and food? At least I haven’t just given up and become a house bound, moo-moo wearing TLC special. I’m back on Ideal Protein, it worked the first time and looking back I realize I tried to hop on it again too soon after having my baby, emotionally, hormonally and physically I wasn’t in the right place to succeed then, but this time I really think I am.
Ideal Protein again huh….? How’s it going?
I have lost 20.2 lbs in 5 weeks but that isn’t even the best part…the best part is how great I feel, how much energy I have and all that equates in to how happy I am. The fat kid is so happy in fact, her husband even noticed!
Have you set any goals for yourself?
Of course, I always like to set small goals that I can achieve to keep me motivated and feeling successful but I have one big one that I really hope I can achieve and that is for my kids to never really know me as a fat person. The kids are 4 and 2 now and don’t yet have much of a concept of obesity or that they have a morbidly obese mum and I really want to be a reasonable healthy weight before they become aware. Also as a fun goal, we are taking the kids to Disneyworld in about 18 months (shhhh it’s a secret) and I would like to be at my goal weight by then and not be worried about whether fatty will fit on the rides or not. I’m sure along the way I will post other small weight and non-scale goals here and there but those are the big ones I am holding in my heart and mind to help me be successful.
You’ve been a really sporadic blogger for the last couple years, what’s up with that?
I have two kids, they have stolen my ability to be creative and funny…isn’t that what makes a successful blog? My goal is to try and blog at least once a week, but don’t hold me too it and in return I won’t expect you to show up very often either. I will try and post recipes here and there as well as new Ideal Protein product reviews if something comes out that I want to try…but don’t expect much!
Anything exciting coming up?
I have perfected my Zucchini Pancakes and also a Chocolate Coconut Mug cake so I hope to get pictures and recipes posted for those…I’m also hoping to get back on Pinterest and test some Ideal Protein recipes out…that’s it so far.
Anything else you’d like to say?
I know I’ve been popping in and out for the last two years announcing my grand plans on this diet or that one without a lot of success, I get it that you guys are all sick of it, I am too. I’m not making promises but I am a work in progress in the biggest battle of my life so stick around, have faith in me, hold me accountable and hopefully this time will be it.
<3 the fat kid.
