Thoughts on weight loss

"My fitness goals are different than most peoples.Most people want to lose enough weight so they look good in a bathing suit or they want to lower their cholesterol. I just want to lose enough so my stomach doesn’t jiggle when I brush my teeth."
-Kevin James

This is about the jist of my fitness goals. I'm a fat girl and I'm ok with that. I'm going to gym (although that is going to get reduced when I set about bringing more income into this house), not to lose weight, but to feel better. I don't like being out of breath all the time. But honestly, I don't care if I ever lose a pound.

I do wish there were more clothes for fat girls. If I had any sewing skills at all, I would start a line of fat girl clothing that wasn't ugly and didn't cost a fortune. Really, I know that fat girl clothes require more material but $20-$50 more material. Seems like a racket to me!

If I could sew, I would also create a line of maternity clothes. They would include fat girl, tall girl, petite girl, etc clothes because according to popular thought only women who are 5'6 to 5'8 and a size 8 ever get pregnant. And the big thing that it would have? Pockets in the pants. Just because someone is having a kid, doesn't mean they have less crap to carry. In fact, it might mean they have more.

I was just complaining about the pregnacy pants lack of pockets the other day. I will be glad when I can finally get rid of them.

Amen sister! I love that I have more energy since I've been going to the gym on a regular basis. But I have to go in the morning or else I won't go at all. And the week that we were quarantined here, I felt gross and sluggish. And I think it was because I wasn't working out.

I'm trying to get back into WW, too, but at this point, if I could just get into last winter's clothes without having to buy a bigger size, I'll be happy!
