I guess that I will not be who I am if not for them. I know that most of us would have low self esteem when attacked by bullies. However, that's not the case for me because my dad would always tell me that I should change and improve for those bullies so at the end of the day they would run out of bad things to say to me.


i was not curious about my weight untill untill i was not on job, when i got job there is a lot of people who ask me about my fat bally dozens of time in a day, than i tuned my mind to reduce...........it. and now i lose 30 pounds and its continue.............

Had a great day yesterday--exercise and food wise. I planned for my evening---ate a Luna Protein bar at 3:15 and wasnt' ravenous at dinner. Dinner was really balanced, baked turkey, roasted vegetables, rice.
I walked in the morning and did 25 minutes on the elliptical. The most exciting news is that my father has lost 7 lbs. He's about 50lbs overweight and has heart disease in the family. I've been worried about him for a while and have been encouraging him to "start the process" He's really inspired me to keep it up and hopefully I can check in with him every week and we can keep each other motivated. My dad is doing www.chrisanthonyfitness.com in the Pittsburgh area.


I was never very conscious of my weight until I was asked if I was pregnant. In middle school.

I had never had a weight problem until I hit puberty. And from that point forward, I was aware.
I was only picked on for a while. When I started high school, people became scared of me. Apparently I am intimidating. But I always got the feeling that people talked muttered about my weight behind my back.

I always dealt with it by ignoring it, but I too know that I never and still don't have it as bad as some people have had it.

Just wanted to put my two cents out there.

Your blog is inspirational to me, Cindy. I found it at work one night and have been reading it there on and off since.



I had a life changing experience in high school. I discovered everyone is bullied. I was a sickly child and I was in the hospital for a routine thing. While in the hospital I made friends with a member of the drill team (this meant she was very popular). At some point, I asked her why she was in the hospital. She was in because she tried to commit suicide.

At that point, I started talking to everyone and found out EVERYONE was teased for something. As I got older, I started working with kids and it just confirmed it.

I have to say it doesnt matter what you look like, you will get teased.

@Cindy I will try to make plans for eating when I don't feel well. Although, I did eat yogurt and fruit all day yesterday. I bought some gum (2 pieces 5 calories). I hope this will help be beat the grazing.

Today I felt better and was very active even went to my self-defense class. I was so proud of myself. I was able to do the 100 jumping jacks, 50 sit ups and 25 pushups! AND still do all the kicks and punches for my class.

Bullying made me who I am today, I think. I like to make fun of my imperfect body but, I do know I have some features that people like/love. I have great lips and no one can take those away from me!

Food wise, great day. Exercise wise, very small walk because I had to move furniture, clean and catch up on a million house duties with a teething baby today. Food journal got done. Even had time to blog. Also, went to the doctor, my knees are fine, no arthritis. So, I just need to take it easy and maybe warm up before I walk ...hmmm, interesting concept, right ?
