Chubby Hipsters

So I have lost 10 lbs. I am 2 and half weeks ahead of schedule for my goal for the month. That is pretty exciting. I actually weighed myself Sunday morning and I was 10.5lbs down. Then Monday I gained a little back, so I didn't want to post about my weight until I got back to that point.

I still look the same, which isn't surprising. Still chubby. I am putting off exercising for some reason. Well...not "some" reason. It's because I don't like the feeling of being out of breath or being sweaty. I also like to tell myself that if I start Jogging that I'll hurt myself because of the weight and the impact of that weight on my joints, and that it would be safer to do that after I've lost more weight. Excuses. But if losing weight was easy everyone would be fit.

When I lose weight I'm gonna wear skinny jeans and v necks that show my belly button just because. I'm gonna wear glasses when I don't need them. I can't do these things now because there is nothing worse than a chubby hipster.


I am still keeping track of my calories.  Mostly smoothies for breakfast, sometimes they have protein powder.  Lunch-I've been keeping it to chicken and things of the like.  Snacks have been low calorie things or fruit.  Dinner-Sometimes Cereal.  

I have 28 followers.  That's kinda weird.  It's nice, all these people keep me from falling back into the bad habits.  I really do want to eat a whole pizza  or get some Mt. Dew, i hope that feeling goes away.  Thanks people.


  1. i swear i thought you looked thinner yesterday!

    also, i've been running/jogging/walking for a few months now and you really can get a lot out of just walking as long as you do it long enough. when i walk, i walk for an hour. jog for 45 minutes. run for 30. you can work up to jogging or walk/jog/walk/jog as you can. the first few days/weeks i felt like i was going to puke but a few months in now and i can tell a quantifiable difference in my stamina

  2. Chubby hipsters are worse than normal hipsters?!? The hunger feeling will never go away. Once a fatty always a fatty. I have the same appetite I had when I was 50 lbs heavier. I just know what to stuff my stomach with that won't make me fat.

  3. as far as running goes, I say GO for it!

    My dad was about 150 LBS over weight and he started running (well, more like jogging a short distance, then walking then jogging then walking, etc.) and it really improved his health and look.

    its not easy to get fit by just doing nutrition or just by working out. you need both to get in top shape in minimal time!

    also, check out Tim Ferris' book "The Four Hour Body"...there might be some stuff in there that interests you.

  4. Running is good for you!
    The more you do it, the easier it gets.
    No excuses -- Go for it!

  5. Mt. Dew is the gateway drug. For me anyway.

  6. I'm with Jenny. Walking is JUST as effective as any other kind of exercise. The most important thing is to get your heart rate up for about 30min every day-- that's the 'doctor's recommendation'.
