  • That the body doesn’t change evenly. I’d been noticing my mom pouch lately as it seemed more prominent, which made no sense because I’m eating clean, hydrating, resting and consistent in working out. Then I realized that my back doesn’t crease horizontally any longer. I’m still quite overweight, but strength training has…
  • I finished week 1 of Insanity without skipping any push ups and taking no more breaks than the pro cast. Also, I can feel my muscles working this time around. Last time I committed fully to this, my body played its own skin-slapping tune.
  • Funny how many circles there are in life. Once I would’ve been frustrated or bored by starting over again. Today I just started Insanity (day1 Plyo Circuit) after a BOD hiatus and am quite pleased. It was fun being purple faced for an hour afterward. It was enlightening to me to feel a sudden desire for yoga in the evening…
  • I tried a pair of ridiculously small looking stretchy jeans on, expecting them to lodge above my knees and go no further. Instead, they slid right up and fastened comfortably—so much so that I wore them all day. I had thought I was just about ready to go down one size. Turns out I’ve already dropped that size and am…
  • Getting closer. I should be able to wear single digit sizes within the next 2-3 months. My next mini goal is 7-8 lbs down OR more visible muscle definition in the next 30 days, (knowing muscle weighs more than fat.)
  • I have shoulder bones. My upper arms, back, torso, were warmly encased in more fat than I realized. A month of strength training in and I found these knobs on both shoulders—visible knobbiness—and took a beat to register them as shoulder bones. I’m cold more often, but I’ll take that trade off every day. I have the energy…
  • @mumof6sv “I’m sorry” let’s you know I care but just doesn’t cut it some days, does it? Sending you a giant socially distant hug—the only kind I want from a stranger. I hope your daughter is healing quickly for all of your sakes, as well. Life has been trying to take the mickey out of me for a few years now, with one death…
  • I’m working my limp noodle self up to heavy weights with a couple of cheap kettlebells in a very small space and pathetic attempts at pull-ups on empty playgrounds. I think the only thing needed to get started is a will to follow through. I’ll nail those pull-ups eventually, and when I do, I’ll strap a backpack filled with…
  • I woke up ready for a fight, so after my workout and shower, I: - put on tiny flame earrings, because ‘...she’ll rise like the whole darned flame...’ - and LGBTQ and Trans support bracelets - and a ‘F—-Cancer’ tee - and a lovely mother-and-child cameo necklace a friend bought me years ago, so that I can nurture EVERYONE!!!…
  • This group always feels like a safe space. I’ve been reading up and some of the names familiar from previous times have made wonderful progress. Each and every one of you is amazing. I started MFP back in...’18? I think? and have been a fickle user ever since. Every so often I’ll buckle up and finish a 3 month spurt…
  • My back is changing. The changes are too small for anyone else to notice but my arms can reach all of my back; fitted sweaters fit well instead of stretching too tightly across my back and midriff; clothes swing differently. It’s exactly the motivation I needed this morning so the timing is perfect. Another NSV is that of…
  • We’re in tandem in this journey, though you’ve pulled slightly ahead of me. And I share the same mini goal. You can do it! You’ve come this far.

  • June, 2020, just after my mom’s diagnosis, and Jan, 2021, 7 months of fitness-as-morning-sanity-break later. Still a work in progress, but I’m more than a third of the way to goal strength.
  • Mini goal: to complete a 90 day transformation challenge I’m setting for myself this week.
  • I see my husband again in three weeks. I want to have more definition in my arms and *kitten*. A petty victory and a small goal on a much longer path
  • I want to be a full size down by January. I’m comfortably in women’s 14 now and wearing a belt by necessity. Reaching a comfortable size 12 is a very attainable goal.
  • I recently received a drawer full of fitness gear from my dresser—stuff I had stashed away as goal clothes that I couldn’t wear yet, some of which I hadn’t even tried beyond the calves. I now fit into all of them. I threw away the tired, ill fitting pieces I had arrived with and now have a while new workout wardrobe.
  • Finished Asylum and am back on original Insanity—doing the Max versions (second half) of everything. Also close to dropping another size by the end of December.
  • How many times in a year one can wonder aloud, “how much flipping weight was I carrying in the first place?!” I know I’m losing weight. I was large enough that I’m actually gaining muscle in the process. However, every 6 weeks or so, my brain jumps ahead of reality and I have to check myself—I’m not yet at goal; I’m not…
  • To fit into the next size down by the end of this November.
  • I was working out daily for months—since a family member’s cancer diagnosis—up until very recently. Two weeks ago, I had to prepare my youngest offspring for surgery in a city 7 hours away. Even with the pre-op prep, I managed a run of no less than 5k every other day for a week. I spent last week between hospital and hotel…
  • On that same note of feeling both thinner and fatter, my clothes fit weirdly. I’m wearing things I haven’t touched in a couple of years and they all slide on easily, but developing muscles in the calves are what keep capris in line now, while fabric sags and swishes emptily around thighs and glutes where the slacks used to…
  • Older thread but it still fits. I’ve done Insanity—completely through once and staggered-week twice. The first run through, I gave myself shin splints. I gained contours and muscle definition, and definitely improved my cardio functions. The next two times I tried it (over the course of two years,) the results were real,…
  • Was coming here to post something similar and pleased to see I’m in excellent company with @thelastnightingale and @AwesomeSquirrel. I know I’m replacing fat with muscle, and dropping fat entirely. I see the changes. I also feel more floppy because I can see things that were previously either hidden or bulked out with…
  • I’ve missed two workouts since June, four months ago. Beloved family was diagnosed with an inoperable, terminal version of the big C that carries a prognosis of 6 mo to 5 yrs. Once the initial shock and bustle was over, I began working out daily for sanity. It was something I could control. I’ve moved across the country to…
  • To lose 8 lbs in one month. I’m finally below 200. I want to keep progressing.
  • My most comfortable sports bra sits too wide now. Instead of firmly holding all while the shoulders rest on top, the shoulders are way out to the sides, almost off shoulder. What’s more, a brand new birthday gift received this morning, carefully sized, is too large. Both surprises make a pleasant gift today.
  • - to drop another size by the end of September. Almost there and I have another week and a half of workouts to get me across the line; - to drop into single digit size by December. An aggressive but still safe goal. (I tend to set aggressive goals for motivation without losing it if I’m a little late getting there.) - To…
  • I’m wearing size large tees and am pleased with the curves that show. I’m still a pear, but no longer a blob. If this is just 3.5 months of steady work, I’m eager to see what another few months will do to my body composition.
