it's come to the point where i don't wanna go out in public anymore. i've gained a lot of weight (which i'm working on losing) and every time i run into someone i know who i haven't seen in awhile they feel the need to point it out and comment on it. i wish people wouldn't do this. newsflash: fat people know they're fat. there's no need to make any remarks about it regardless of how "well-meaning" they may be. so tired of my size being the only topic of discussion.

I have not had an alcoholic drink in two days (I have been drinking almost non stop for a few years). Tonight I was craving chocolate and I ate two chocolate bars! I can't remember the last time I had candy, I just don't eat sweets. I guess it's the lack of alcohol. Better a Butterfinger than a fifth of vodka, lol.

I'm watching that show "Nailed it" on Netflix and it's both depressing and heartening at the same time. I know I can never do the fancy stuff on Pinterest, but it's nice to know that other people screw it up just as badly. It does sort of deter me from wanting to actually take on those projects though.

My tattoo looks so awesome. I have had it two weeks now, but I still feel like I'm going to rub it off somehow. I also kinda wonder when I can start shaving over it again (it's on my calf). I'm scared to ruin it.

I'm going to start referring to the energy content of my food in BTUs instead of calories. Maybe I'll even recalculate them for some of my favorites. Only because it sounds so much more badass and I'm sick of the negative association in my head with the word "calories".

In response to a confession. Well, not skin color per se, but ethnicity. If you aren't a white man, BMI is pretty much not a good indicator of anything. Most people of Asian heritage have smaller bones and less musculature than say, Native Americans or people of African or Aboriginal descent. I have a good friend who is Japanese and she is 5'2" and weighs like 90 lbs and for her, it's an okay weight but I'm an inch taller and have to weigh at least 20 lbs more than that to even be at a minimally healthy weight. And even though BMI is NOT a measure of health, too many doctors treat it as such and categorize your health status based on that. It's time to get rid of it.

In response to a confession. I understand all of the other physical factors involved like height, build, etc.. But just curious, what does skin color have to do with it?

A friend of mine used to be a overweight. We've been friends 15 years. She's always been nice and open minded. The past 6 months she's been on a weight loss journey. She lost all her weight, now she's toning. She changed the past few months. Very argumentative, angry, closed minded, and bossy. Part of me feels like she's just hangry...every 3 weeks she fasts for 3 to 5 days. She works out twice a day, burning 800ish calories a day, barely eats anything when she isn't fasting. The only reason I know is because she posts several times a day what she eats and how many calories she burned. I'm happy for her physically bettering herself, but I when people change in a negative way when it comes to how they treat people.

In response to a confession. Actually, you can't rely on BMI if you are not white, if you are really short, really tall, an athlete, a bodybuilder, or anyone else besides a typical white guy from about the 1850s. If you're a tall skinny person with a belly, you'll get tagged as "normal" even though you probably have elevated risk levels for cardiovascular disease and diabetes. I don't understand why they don't use waist to hip ratio or waist to height ratio as a measure of obesity instead. Because even if you are "obese" according to BMI, if you have a small waist, it's not as detrimental to your health as belly fat.

Not the Official Fascia Blaster. But the same concept:
