It’s such an UggLee word. Forgive me.
I met with a personal trainer today. It wasn’t pretty. He weighed me. Then he asked me to hold this electronic device that reads your body fat percentage. Mine is 34 point something or other.
Apparently, anything higher than 30 is considered obese. That’s what HE said, this man who calls himself “Mister Shut Up and Train”
I thought to myself: “exCUUUSE me?!” Then he hit me with more “facts.”
He even wrote these numbers down, my age, my current weight, my height.
There it was, in black and white.
I was so stunned, I couldn’t bring myself to tell him my goal weight. I wouldn’t even look him in the eye. I was too embarrassed to realize how far off track I really am. Not to mention my ideal weight feels unattainable, after seeing the digital reading on the scale during my weigh in.
I need to lose more than 40 POUNDS!!
It’s okay. I’ll just have to plan some low fat meals for myself AND cut out all of the snacking, the wine, the mochas, chips…
Below is the best “Before” shot I have, so you can see my obesity in it’s fullness. It’ll be a while before I post an “After”
