So this is it.
Matt D’Avella has, in a sense, saved my life as well as my sanity.
I will reference Matt D’Avella a lot. Here is one of the videos that got me going.
Not that I had any sanity to begin with.
But I digress.
Not only have I rid myself of things I don’t actually need or want, I’ve started to take my health more seriously. It’s pretty much a necessity as a woman of a certain age.
So here is where I chronicle my journey.
I don’t know if I am going to do weigh-ins here. It’s hard enough living at this weight, which, as I have said, is not all my fault. I like to call it, the medi-fats because Depakote is a terrible drug and should not be given to teenagers1.
I have had eating disorders during my life and I have battled with this weight issue more than half that time. This is a mindset shift. And I want to talk about it and especially for those who have taken Depakote at some point in their lives. I just want y’all to know you can drop the weight and, most of it is not. your. fault.
Here is where I lay my sins, wins, triumphs, and failures.
Let’s fucking go.
Hole ‘nother discussion, but for reference, a friend I was in a group home with took Depakote for her seizures in 2nd grade. She got really fat and then it made her develop breasts. AT 7 YEARS OLD. Yeah… ↩
My clothes are getting looser and I am getting more determined.
Making a smoothie in this thing is gratifying…
I’m still at it y’all!
I use MyFitnessPal and MapMyFitness to keep track of my eating and fitness.
When I started my first round of weight loss, it was an accident.
