Taking the stairs by storm-Project Badass

Status: Badass
Starting Weight: 307
Current Weight: 303

Stairs, lots and lots of stairs. It seems like if you're an overweight person there are always stairs. You dread having to go up them because your knees feel like you're grinding them down, if you're like me and have terrible depth perception you dread going down them for fear of taking a tumble. My gym has two ways to get in and out of my gym, the stairs which everyone takes or the elevator which is meant to make the gym handicap accessible. The first two times I was there I took the elevator up and down and felt like a total stooge. The girl with the foot brace was taking the stairs for goodness sakes! So yesterday after a grueling cardio and strength sessions back to back, I did it (slowly) I went up the stairs to my car and even though I was winded by the half way point, I was so proud of myself when I did it. In a few weeks I'll be bouncing up and down those steps too.

Tomorrow I have to go out networking, normally this is a chance for me to increase our connections or strengthen ones we already have and hopefully broker us more deals in the process but really it's about relationship building and frankly I've been pretty terrible at it lately. Why has my performance decreased so drastically? Because I don't think I deserve to be ther…

Becoming a Fashion Grown up-Chubby Girl In the World Style

Ok, I'll admit it I'm getting old, on Dec. 7th of this year I will be 29! (Silent freak out). What's worse is I'm now a grown up with an early not mid-twenties closet. I feel like I've outgrown the major retailers and need to move on, I'm ready for a more mature fashion relationship but I have fashion issues.
 My key fashion issues:

Short leg, longer torsoBottom heavy in all the wrong placeswhat I call "marshmallow syndrome"- If clothes are too tight, it looks like I'm a sausage, if too loose they not shape at all. So does any of this sound familiar? Here's the advice that has actually worked for me over the years and if I had unlimited funds this is the wardrobe I would create, I' a size 28 which is considered "super sized" so for the sake of argument I'll include designers that stop at size 26 but note them with an asterisk*. Nothing is worse than reading a that one page of Marie Claire dedicated to Plus fashion and realizin…
