McFatty Monday {with linky}

I am fat and that's not okay.

That sentence has nothing to do with a poor self esteem, it is simply a fact. I somehow got myself into the state of being 'obese'. Well not really somehow, it stems from my pregnancy with Ethan and then the antidepressants after his birth that seen me gain a lot of weight pretty quickly. But I have been off my antidepressants for a while now and my weight is still hovering around the 80-85kg weight range. I can't seem to get under 80kgs. It seems like I get there and then start to go back up again.

My energy levels are flat, but I KNOW that if I just started exercising more often my energy levels will lift. I KNOW this, but I just don't seem to be listening to myself. I KNOW that I am exhausted, but do you think I can go to bed at a reasonable hour?

This week I am giving myself a swift kick up the ass. I am fat and that's not okay, and I HAVE to do something about it.

First stop is to stop playing mind games with myself. I deserve better!


You know the drill, if you have posted about healthy living and/or weight loss please link up below. I'd love to read your post.

  1. Hola Amy, soy Carmen de Barcelona - España. Tu blog es una de los que sigo. Hoy cundo he entrado he visto tu escrito.Has sido valiente el reconocer que estas obesa. es el primer paso. Yo he pasado por la fase de estar inflada por antidrepresivos, y realmente lo pasaba muy mal cuando me miraba en el espejo, pero cuando los deje, volvi mas o menos a mi peso. Yo tengo en contra que soy mayor que tu.
    Lo que he intentado, por que me gusta mucho comer, es tener en la mente, no un regimen, por que me es imposible, digo, tengo en la mente, el quemar calorias. Si puedes ir algún sitio, mejor, pero yo he intentado que todo lo que hago durante el día este encaminado a quemar calorias.
    Pide ayuda, y poco a poco, podrás ir recuperando tu cuerpo. Mucha suerte.

    1. Hi Clare, I am in awe of you baring all on your blog. I don't know if I am ready for that. I have considered weighing in on here, but don't think I am ready for that. Hopefully one day soon I will be comfortable enough to do that.

      Look forward to being on this journey with you though :)
