I'm using this page to record my progression of staying in shape at college. This is purely for my own motivation and to log my efforts. I'm not just trying to drop weight, I'm trying to get a killer, toned, tight, fit, amazing, healthy body that I know is hiding somewhere under all the gross unhealthy fat that's been weighing me down all year. This is my life and I'm going to shed all the unhappiness on my hips and enjoy it! Judgement free zone so if you don't have something nice to say gtfo :) ............................... Age: 20 Height: 5'1 SW: 135ish CW1: 123 CW2: 121 CW3: 119 CW4: 116 CW5: 120 (big backtrack when I got back to school :/ ) Goal A: 115 Goal B: serious muscle tone

A while back, at the entrance of a gym, there was a picture of a very thin and beautiful woman. The caption was “This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?”
The story goes, a woman (of clothing size unknown) answered the following way:
“Dear people, whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, seals, curious humans), they are sexually active and raise their children with great t…enderness.
They entertain like crazy with dolphins and eat lots of prawns. They swim all day and travel to fantastic places like Patagonia, the Barents Sea or the coral reefs of Polynesia.
They sing incredibly well and sometimes even are on cds. They are impressive and dearly loved animals, which everyone defend and admires.
Mermaids do not exist.
But if they existed, they would line up to see a psychologist because of a problem of split personality: woman or fish?
They would have no sex life and could not bear children.
Yes, they would be lovely, but lonely and sad.
And, who wants a girl that smells like fish by his side?
Without a doubt, I’d rather be a whale.
At a time when the media tells us that only thin is beautiful, I prefer to eat ice cream with my kids, to have dinner with my husband, to eat and drink and have fun with my friends.
We women, we gain weight because we accumulate so much wisdom and knowledge that there isn’t enough space in our heads, and it spreads all over our bodies.
We are not fat, we are greatly cultivated.
Every time I see my curves in the mirror, I tell myself: “How amazing am I ?! “
Haha what a great comeback 👏👏
