Hi! I am Elizabeth, a 24 year old American living in New Zealand and trying to change my unhealthy lifestyle. This is where I talk about that, and reblog things I find interesting and relevant that pertain to health issues.

I am currently:
5'11 (178 cm)
249.7 (113.5kg)

Starting (Blog):
256.3lbs (116.5 kg)

Highest Weight
310 lbs (141 kg)

 

Off to the gym!

So, today I went to the gym with Grace, and I really didn’t want to.  I mean… ugh.  I don’t like being around other people, it terrifies me to a certain degree… 

But Grace is going to be my gym buddy! We have plotted out four days a week we plan to go to the gym, and I have sent a few questions to my step mum about working out (this woman did Tough Mudder, teaches step, spin, pilates, and a slew of other things ontop of running ALL THE FUCKING TIME.)  so hopefully she will get back to me on those questions soon.

I did 20 minutes on the treadmill, and the thing says I did 200 calories worth… and I know that’s not heaps, but it’s a start.  Mostly I was worried about my heart rate being at 210… My heartrate climbs really quickly and I have a difficult time knowing if it is *okay* or not.  It’s not like I was running, it was jogging… Ugh.

We then did weights, which I did a few decently, but then when it came to pilates like things… I just.. No.  I gave up.

I looked silly, but that’s okay… Even if I didn’t do much, I am back to trying.


I MISS SWIMMING.

It’s been a long time, but… I feel like I am climbing back on the wagon.

They physically moved her bones. They moved her collar bone lower. I hope stuff like this makes people realize how ridiculous the media is.

this is so depressing. 

this makes me so angry!

oH MYGOD I HATE THE MEDIA

In case you’re ever wondering why you don’t look like the girls on the covers of magazines: neither do they.

I will always reblog this so everyone that follows me has a chance to see how messed up society is.

In January, this will be my body

This picture helped me so much.. I never liked my ‘wide’ hips before I saw this

Do you know how blessed you ladies are with wide hips? gosh her body’s beautiful!

Blessed? Try to find fitting jeans. No body type is better than another, they all have their good and bad sides.

even if u don’t actually genuinely love yourself its fuckin fun to act like you think you’re the human embodiment of perfection go on try it life’s too short to not fall in love with yourself
