A Rant and A Transformation.

Yesterday at the gym, as I got out of my car, I hear very loud talking. I didn't really think anything of it, it's Joshua Texas, the only volume is loud. Then I heard FAT. Naturally, I whipped my head around. The two 'gentleman' then proceeded to say (indirectly of course) "Do some pushups, Lose weight before you come to the gym." 
I was incomplete shock. Are you freaking kidding me? 

1. Are you that damn ignorant? I am at the GYM to lose weight. That's what the GYM is for. 
2. You kind sir, are at a YMCA. If you want to get all 'swole' and shit, go to a REAL gym. Where there are muscleheads, not where the population is 70% old people. 
3. You're criticizing me for "not losing weight before I come to the gym", when you are just someones ride? Uhm no. 
4. Before you judge MY appearance, take a look in the mirror. Not only are you clearly white trash, but you have a horrendous mullet. Okay Billy Ray Cyrus, I'll be sure to take your advice to heart.

It didn't in any way hurt my feelings. It just pissed me off. The fact that someone is that ignorant, and that RUDE. I was all the way across the parking lot, and could hear him loud and clear. I am there to better MYSELF. For ME. No one else. I don't come to the gym to look pretty, I go to GET pretty. Yes, every one has an opinion. But let me tell you something.




YOU DON'T GET TO CALL ME FAT. I have busted MY ass. To not look like that ^^ I'd say I am doing a pretty damn good job. I have hit complete rock bottom, I will NEVER return there. And I damn sure will not let some douchebag bring me down. Everyone has their own struggles and their own insecurities, don't point them out. I am well aware that I have more work today. HENCE WHY I GO TO THE GYM. So, before you yell out your ignorant opinion, think. Think about what is coming out of your uneducated redneck ass. "Lose weight before you go to the gym"... Are you fucking stupid? And for your information. I have.


I have lost a full grown lab.






So, like I said. YOU don't get to call me fat. Nor does anyone else. The day that I give up completely, the day that I become the old me, is the day you get to judge, and give your harsh opinions. You'll be waiting for a very long time. I will NOT become that person again. I will not let the words of ignorant people affect me. Everyone's journey is different. Take a walk in my shoes, I guarantee you, you would have fallen along time ago.

So, Redneck Billy Ray, and everyone else who has those opinions, you can take them, and shove them up your achy breaky ass.




And on that not, I must bid you adieu.

  3. I would have stabbed someone in the FACE if it had been me the were talking about. HOW IN THE WORLD do they think that they have the authority or ability to do that. Why does someone lose weight before going to the gym? Isn't that a bit of an oxymoron?

    You dear look fantastic and dont' you let anyone tell you any different!

  7. You look amazing honey, and like I said on IG yesterday, don't let those fools get you down. You have worked hard and your efforts are paying off. Screw those asshats!

  8. My favorite part of this empowering rant is "I lost a full grown lab." <- You are my new hero!!! The silver lining here is that he is probably all ready completely unhappy and miserable in his life, which is what he deserves! You can, will, and have lost weight. He is always going to be a shitty person. :)

  10. Hi dear! This is my first time reading your blog and I just want you to know that I aspire to be as awesome as you are.

    Anyone else would have taken that senseless comment and cried about it for days. YOU on the other hand knew that he was an idiot and didn't have any place to talk because you know how far you've come.

    It's so amazing to see confidence like yours and I'm excited to follow along your inspiring journey! <3

    PS - we're new facebook friends!

  11. You, my dear, rock! If someone would've yelled that to me (I am very heavy, so I am sure it's been said before, just not loud enough for me to hear) I would've melted into a puddle and got back in my car and cried my eyes out. I would probably never go back to that gym again. I am so self conscious when I am at the gym. I feel like everyone there is staring at me, judging me. I wish I had your confidence. You go girl!

  16. Hi! Found you from Holly's page.
    You are spot on with your response to that parking-lot meanie. They must be pretty insecure if they have to go after a complete stranger.
