Surfing along on the interwebs, I came across this interesting post from Women’s Adventure
Go read it, because it is interesting. Calling the writer (Rebecca) out because she's overweight; only lost five pounds in one month. I then had to surf over and see Rebecca’s weight loss journey article. Okay. I guess she has some weight to lose. Not that much. Don’t most of us?
But, like her, don’t wait until you are at your goal weight to start living. Don’t wait to start having adventures. Don’t wait until you get to 125 lbs to run your first marathon.
I don’t look like your typical ultra runner. Even if I lose these last 15 (or even 20) pounds, I will never have the frame of a Amy Sproston or Deena Kastor.
I get the comment from people lots of times, about how I inspire them. I seldom understand the compliment. It used to bug me in fact, because I always figured it was because of my weight. These days I am far less self-conscious about my weight. It is still there; I don't really see myself ever just running in my sports bra and shorts.

But you can't let the fact that you don't like seeing your fat rolls in your Lycra delay you from your plans to conquer the world.

Don't let others people opinions sway you from accomplishing your dreams. It's your one body. You have a finite time on this earth. Go out there now and play.
