Calamity Jen

I don't know how you do it. I'm on the opposite trip; I was skinny when I was younger, but as my metabolism has slowed to a crawl and I have maintained my strict sedentary lifestyle, my weight has crept upward. I admire your dedication to fitness - and I would have admired it equally if I had known you when you were large. As for me, I can't seem to resist the lure of the couch.


Every time I see Carson's new show, I think of you -- especially when the women have to decide where they belong in the spectrum.


Calamity - I cannot imagine ever living as thin
Dagny- I must watch the show!!! I know the premise.

I was feeling hugely fat yesterday - in size four levis - and identifying women who were comparable to my size on the BART and I realized - I still totally see myself as a size 14/16/18. I literally see myself as the same size as my old self.

Weird... I can look at photos of myself and can tell that I am smaller, yet I still feel that I am big and see big in the mirror.

So interesting...


When I started losing weight, I was worried that I would always feel like "the fat girl" and I've been really surprised that I don't feel that way at all. Thin feels totally normal to me. I don't know why it's that way for me. Maybe it's because I got out young and the fat girl stuff didn't complete saturate my psyche. I don't know. Good luck getting your head around your real size!


Wow - You are the "ME" I want to be... I am crazy jealous - I don't want to be FAT GIRL RACING this year... Why did this weight loss effort work for you? I haven't read your blog before; so I am curious....


Just showing love.



Sorry, but someone has to say it:

Skinny bitch!

Seriously, I hope you start seeing yourself more realistically soon. It sounds like you look great.


This is the first time i've read your stuff and it is totally inspirational. I am at the complete beginning of my weight loss. I recently passed my highest previous weight and that has managed to get me moving again. Hopefully, reading about people like you who have managed to push themselves and lose the weight can keep me pushing myself.


I'm the opposite I felt skinnyish when I was a 14 and was shocked by pictures of me or the mirror. Now I'm a 4 I feel I look how I always felt. I was a 4 6 8 most of my life without dieting till I hit 40 then I piled on.
