Why I Quit Saying Day #1

Posted by Kody at Skinny Sized at Thursday, October 31, 2013 Links to this post

I think saying day #1 of a diet is simply diet suicide. It’s asking for it and getting exactly what you asked for. At least it is for me. It seems no matter when day one is day number two whatever is a failure.

Are we setting ourselves up when we say I am starting my diet on Monday, on the first day of the month, the day after my anniversary, January 1st, or whatever? Is this nothing but creating our own sabotage?

The one time I think dieting actually worked for me I started on a Wednesday. I have no idea where that will power came from but it did. Do you find that you set yourself up to fail?


I always find the excuses and the failures just come naturally after that. What day is a good day? What day is the right day? Is there such a thing? Or does it just happen. Do you just wake up one day and It’s there? This is it! Today is the day? Is that what happens?

Swimsuits? Yep I Want One!

Posted by Kody at Skinny Sized at Wednesday, October 30, 2013 Links to this post

There are a few things off the top of my head that I know losing weight would make possible. One of my biggest desires is to be able to wear a swimsuit again. I love to swim. I am practically a fish I love it so much. The truth is I haven’t put a suite on in years because I don’t want anyone to see me.

I want to be invisible most of the time. Putting on something that shows skin is not exactly on my radar. I live just minutes from the beach but I never go because I don’t want the reminders that I am too embarrassed to be seen there.


Even if you are not in a swimsuit the last thing people want is to see is a fat person walking the beach. They give you weird looks like you are not welcome because you don’t fit in. You are not part of their group because you can’t wear what they wear and even if you did they certainly don't want to look at you wearing it.


You can only imagine how silly I probably looked this past summer when I was walking the beach in jeans while everyone else was frolicking around in their cute suits. Somedays are more humiliating than others and that was certainly one of them.

Being Fat Has Ruined Everything.

Posted by Kody at Skinny Sized at Monday, October 28, 2013 Links to this post

It’s funny I am sitting here looking at the blog I created to inspire me to lose weight but instead of inspiration all I see is regret and failure. What’s even sadder is that I closed my blog down to prevent other people from seeing it because I didn’t want them to see my utter failure. 

How can I inspire you to lose weight when I can't
inspire myself to lose weight?

As soon as I fail I walk away. I have never considered myself to be a quitter or a failure but here I am staring it in the face. This blog was created to show the real face of obesity.

To tell you I have a severe problem is an understatement. I eat when I am lonely, depressed, stressed, disappointed, bored, or for any other reason I can think of. 
Wanting to lose weight and really wanting it are two different thing...

If you are someone who wants to lose weight you will agree, think it’s a great idea, and encourage others while all along never doing anything to help yourself. Someone who really wants to lose weight, I mean really, is the one that starts the week with a menu plan, calories counted out, grocery shopping done, excuses gone, and motivation that will blow the person who wants to lose weight off the road.

Really wanting to lose weight means not having excuses….

I am a bucket of excuses. Hummm which one will I pull out today is always the REAL question?  I hate being fat, and even more so I hate that I have allowed my life to get away from me. I hate that I have allowed being fat for so many years dictate what happens to me.
  • I can’t swim because I am fat
  • I hate to meet new people because I am fat
  • I don’t feel comfortable being on a plane, squashing other people, because I am fat.
  • I like to buy new clothes because I don’t fit into anything because I am fat.
  • I can’t get pregnant because I am fat
  • I had a miscarriage because I am fat
  • I feel like I am a loser because I am fat
  • I hide in the shadows because I am fat
  • Being fat has been allowed to control my entire life.
  • Being fat has ruined everything
I have ruined everything because I have allowed myself to get into this condition. No excuses! I blame no one, or nothing! It wasn't because I had a bad childhood, or whatever excuse others want to have! I am fat because of ME!

Starting Over ... Failure is Never Trying

Posted by Kody at Skinny Sized at Saturday, October 26, 2013 Links to this post

I have started this blog from scratch because I am starting my life (so to speak) from scratch. I am going to slip up and make mistakes and my diet will probably fly out the window from time to time, but I don’t intend to allow it to derail me.


My goal is to pick up the pieces and move on each time I may fail. Let's be honest I will fail there is not doubt, but failing does not make me a failure. Failure is never trying. I try all the time and at times I feel like a dieting failure but this time I am not going on a diet this time I am going to try something new. 

This time I am going to change my life. I am going to eat better, exercise, find some inner peace, and help my family find a healthier lifestyle in the process. Who couldn't use a healthier life am I right? It's been a long time since I made this blog public. Anyone who has been here before will notice that everything from the past gone because I have changed a lot. I needed a re-do or a do-over so to speak. Wouldn't be awesome if we got do-overs in everything in life?
