I went on a jog today. With tennis shoes and everything.

Bella, I didn't do this last post but I want to thank you for joining at a time when I feel so disconnected to everyone on Blogger. Thank you for your support.

30 Day Challenge
Day nine - Did people ever make comments about your weight in a negative way?
Yes. I remember a few isolated events. Like the time I was 12 and was at youth group and I jumped from the stage to a wooden platform on the ground and the boy I liked at the time said "I'm surprised you didn't break that." And yes, it was purposely meant as a jab to my weight. I've been called an obese circus midget by my own boyfriend's mother. Not to my face but I saw the e-mail she sent him. When I was a pre-teen my parents made a few comments here and there when I ate a few too many sweets. And I'm sure a few douche bag guys called me fat behind my back in high school. Since I've lost weight though I've had guys say I'm hot and I've been honked at while jogging down the street. It's a different kind of attention, and while either way I see it as demeaning towards women I guess I'd rather have the obnoxious guys honking at me. It beats crying over people calling me fat.

So I actually went on one of those aforementioned jogs today in what seems like forever. It's been something like a month since I've even put on my tennis shoes. It was only a 20 minute jog but I felt good afterwards. And I only got honked at once. I really want to lose some weight before school starts again, even if it's only 5 lbs. And I know if I work at it I can definitely lose 5 lbs in a month.

Hopefully I'll have some time tomorrow to read everyone's blogs. I hate not knowing what's been going on in everyone else's lives, but that's my fault. =/

Have a great night girlies,
♥ Toni


  1. Some people are terribly cruel, I'm sorry that they commented about your weight. I went running today also for cross country, it hurts like crazy but it feels so good afterwards. I hope you have a lovely day! <3

  2. I hate when people make fun of other's weight. It really irritates me. Great job on the run today! I wish I had that motivation. I need to run!

  3. Love you dude, and I would have loved you at either weight. The only difference is, I know you feel healthier and happier now. :) Cheers.
