Secrets of a Former Fat Girl: How to Lose Two, Four (or More!) Dress Sizes--And Find Yourself Along the Way
An inspiring account of one woman’s successful mission to lose six dress sizes and change her life for good
Any woman who’s ever been a “fat girl” knows: the label sticks in your mind, regardless of how much weight you lose. Twenty years ago, at 5'4" and 185 pounds, Lisa Delaney was despondent over diets that never worked and disappointed by her dull job and lack of a love life. Fortunately, a late-night epiphany involving a half-gallon of mint chocolate chip ice cream convinced her that becoming a former fat girl—in body and spirit—was the key to creating a life she truly loved.
Today, seventy pounds lighter, Lisa is a successful writer at a national magazine. She is married to a man she loves. And she wears a size two.
Eye-opening yet refreshingly accessible, Secrets of a Former Fat Girl reveals the seven secrets of Delaney’s success, exploring how shifting from wannabe former fat girl to actual former fat girl is as much about seeing yourself as a confident, secure, desirable woman as it is about achieving an ideal weight. Featuring concrete advice to help readers drop two, four (or more!) dress sizes and re-imagine their own best lives, this book offers the strategies and support to help them effect real change once and for all.
Nov 4, 2010 [Day 004] “Purple Part I”
Purple Part I.
As I sit and think about what I want to write about today I am lacking for a theme photo. I want to take a photo of something purple but nothing around me catches my eye or is even the color purple. Then it dawns on me, my shaving gel's container has purple on it, so I take some photos of that for lack of finding anything purple other than a purple shirt… come to find my memory stick for the camera is purple, it was closer than I thought, just out of view.
On October 20, 2010 people around the country (and world) were asked to wear purple in honor of 6 gay boys who committed suicide in the past weeks and months. I honored them by wearing purple that day along with many many other people no matter what their sexual orientation is. What a great way to remember these tragedies.
The color purple on the pride flag represents spirit and it was felt that this would best honor them. The Pride Flag was created by Gilbert Baker, a friend of Harvey Milk's in 1978 (I was 5). It has been used ever since its debut in San Francisco at the Freedom Day Parade. Originally it bared 8 strips Pink, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Turquoise, Blue, and Purple but later shed 2 of the stripes; Pink and Turquoise.
Bullying has been in the headlines for over a decade as a growing concern in American schools; private and public and not just in kindergarten – High school but spilling over into colleges. This is something that should no longer be tolerated in any school and swift punishments need to be handed out until the problem is solved… but will that really put a stop to bullying? I don't think it will unfortunately, but there has to be some way of combating the issue…
Bullying goes into a wide range of things and isn't limited to being called a fag or queer… It can spread to anything anyone feels isn't ‘normal’ or isn't what they are i.e. people that are poor, overweight, under weight, have a big nose, didn't ‘mature’ yet and the list goes on. Name calling though seems harmless enough leaves some pretty deep scars and I know this from experience…
Part 1, Memories that are not unique to just me, but still haunt me to this day.
I was bullied through middle school and high school. My parents were not wealthy and growing up in a wealthy town [Not sure what the average income was back when I lived there, but as of 2007 it was roughly between $245,844 - $296,821] I got bullied for the clothes I wore and the lack of money my family had… I would love to say I was so mature that it didn't matter, but it did… I wanted to be like my other classmates and that even rolled over into my sexuality…
I was gay and frankly I knew it. I knew I liked other boys since I was probably 5 and only one other person knew that (well that I told anyway) and that was my best friend Brian. Brian and I had been friends since kindergarten and in the 4th grade he and I started messing around… innocent enough really but when we started getting bullied about how much time we spent together and how we must be fags Brian ended our friendship and relationship at the begging of our 8th grade year. Not only did he end it all, but he joined in and started bullying me with my classmates.
I wanted to die, I lost any hope that life would get better and every single day I hated going to school and I hated myself. I hated myself for being different and I couldn't understand why this was happening to me. Was I being punished for something I had done? Did I not go to church enough? Was I not loving enough to my family, was I just simply evil? As the weeks went by… these thoughts raced through my head more and more. I tried to change the way I felt about girls and went to a couple of dances with ‘dates' which was not easy to do when everyone is calling you a fag and pushing you in the hallways at school. I managed to get two dates to two different dances that year and not that it meant I had to marry them or even do anything like kiss them, there was simply nothing there… no feelings, no thoughts other than me trying not to check out the other boys dressed up and thinking how cute they looked..........
2/365 - Resolutions
Man - I don't know what hit me but in the last month I've put on some serious weight. I have a scale in the bathroom that I use on occasion, but the other day I weighed myself and thought for sure the thing was broken. So needless to say, this means one of my New Year's Resolutions is to .... you guessed it .... lose some weight!
I guess it's pretty normal to gain some weight over the holidays, and it's even more normal for me to make resolutions that I don't end up keeping! But we'll see how it goes. Now the entire Flickr multi-verse knows exactly how much I weigh so there's some motivation to do something about it!
On a small side-note, since moving to the UK I've become accustomed to some new terms (as they say we're two countries divided by a common language). This scale is actually measuring kg's, but at the top you'll see "Stones" which is equivalent to 14 pounds. This comes from the units of measurement used throughout the Commonwealth in days gone-by. But it's still used pretty regularly, so if for some reason you're talking to a Brit and body weight is the topic, they'll say "I weigh 13 stone 4 pounds" and then leave it to your math skills to figure out what the heck they really weigh.....
