  1. Hi everyone. I'm a complete newb to NF, I've literally posted my first challenge 2 days ago, but I can't resist a forum! I'm 160cm/5'3" female and 84kg. I've got 2 children, my youngest is 21 months. I've not really done any exercise since before I had kids, even then it was just occasional swimming, and I've slowly ballooned to the fat and flabby person I am today. I want to change that. I adore the way strong women look. I'm not aiming to be a size 0 with no waist or boobs or arse. I want to have shape, strength and definition. If I
  2. Welcome to my new and improved Road Map for 2017 I'm going on the path of self love. To love myself unconditionally My love for myself should not be tied to a number on the scale, or my dress size Dieting AND overeating are both symptoms of something else being wrong In my case that is. But since this page is just about me, I shouldn't have to actually write that here, do I? By focusing on food. Werther it is eating lots and lots of it, or depriving myself of certain things, keeps my focus away from things that are truly important. Like
  3. I have posted in the Men's Facebook group and the LGBTQIA Facebook group, and I'd like to post here so I can get some of your insight. So - yesterday, while on Facebook, I noticed one of the friends I'm following has posted some of his pictures of his upcoming cosplay. In this case, it was Hot Ryu (Bearded Ryu) from Street Fighter V. ( Link to photo. ) And for some reason, instead of complimenting him for his look, I started feeling very insecure and jealous. I felt like, "What if I still don't get the body I want after I hit 200 lbs, or even 180 lbs? I mean, sure, I'll have lower
  4. This is my second challenge! I'm still in the Rebel forum because I keep waffling on which guild is the best fit for me. If you're curious about me, here's the short version: I'm a language and history and biology nerd who lives in Boston and runs an organic farm for a living. Well, technically two farms but that's not the short version. I used to work in law and was really sedentary, but then I lost a lot of weight (about 90 pounds) and switched careers and became a reasonably active and healthy person. However, I still have unresolved food and body image issues of various k
  5. Hello, everyone. I know that this is a friendly and supportive community; my shyness is just some concerns that I perhaps don't belong. I think if I were to post a picture of myself, people would laugh and say that I shouldn't worry about being fit and healthy. I look good: 5 ft. 4 in. (162.5 cm) tall and weighing 121 lbs (54.9 kg). So, what's my hangup? What's my motivation for joining Nerd Fitness? Honestly, it's my body image issues. Specifically, my issues with my stomach/tummy/abdomen. It will distend and swell depending on what I eat and how much I eat. It's natural (morning)
  6. Happy New Year everyone! I hope the holidays were good for everyone. I sure have had a great holiday season, and am excited to take on 2016. This year could either see much change in my life, or a lot of the same old same old, I don't honestly know which way it will go, its all dependent on what will happen with my husband (The Mastermind), who is working on his PhD. Either way, I want to make the most of the year ahead, and I have big plans to do so. The biggest of my plans is that I signed up to run the Detroit International Half Marathon in October, EEEK! So that is the current fitness qu
  7. After a brief hiatus in the battle log, I’m back… This will be my last full challenge in the UK . I’m going to miss lifting in kg (among many, many other things). Since I’ve gotten pretty good at the lift, eat, sleep, lift more routine, this challenge is about putting the final pieces together—and namely, about finding balance. I've also added a Sir Terry Pratchett theme (the Tiffany Aching series) for fun--and for appropriately modified Nac Mac Feegle battle cries. Scroll down to the end for the tl;dr version. GOAL 1: Prioritize cutting over gainz [+2 CHA, +1 STR] â€
  8. Hey, So I'm assuming I'm among friends here, even some friends who were overweight before, or are overweight and struggling with it, or are even beating it. I'm sure there are people on here who have felt insecure about the way they look, too, so my question is, how do you guys deal with it? How do you embrace it? I've had family members and other people commenting on my looks for as long as I can remember. I used to be under 100 pounds, then got severely depressed and shot all the way up to 150-ish in four years, and my family has been commenting and calling me fat ever since. I've had
  9. My goals will be a little different this time… my main goal will be hard to measure, but when I succeed it will be obvious. The other two will be measurable and simple. Find my intuition! As simple and as complex as that might be… I need to fix my relationship with food and find my hunger cues again. Some steps that are measurable are: I will read Intuitive Eating I will do all three lessons in Summer Innanen’s Rock Your Body program which starts on the first day of this challenge. I love the message that Summer teaches and I’m working to make changes… the blog http://summe
  10. Hi y'all! I am starting this as a daily thread to encourage myself and anyone else who wants to show more love to their bodies and/or improve their relationship with food. How It Works:Every day, you find the thread (click "follow this thread" the red button on the top right of the thread page) and post one or more positive comments about your body and/or a positive thing involving your relationship with food. Who Can Participate: Anyone, regardless of level or guild, from the day you join the Rebellion until the day you leave us. What Else Do I Need To Know: There may be levels added f
  11. SEIZE THE DAY! Alrighty, Princess Heather is back in action! I have been MIA around here for the past few weeks, and it was due to me being in a bit of a funk and also lots of life happening. I have been promoted at work, from office manager into a sort of project coordinator, responsible for overseeing several ministry teams and being the point person for outreach and service projects for my church. It's a fun environment, and out biggest service project(s) of the year happen at the end of September so I've got lots going on for that. We are also in the midst of TTC, and keeping healthy
  12. The struggle to fit into the size and shape that today's beauty industry makes women feel like they ought to have in order to be happy, healthy and successful in life has always haunted me. Limbs too thick, hips too wide, legs too short, not enough chest, too much booty, etc etc etc, has always left me feeling like an outsider very unable to identify with other women and with the entire industry that makes me feel like I'm not a real or beautiful woman unless I look like all the advertisements tell me I should. I'm not fat, but I'm not skinny. I'm not hideously out of shape, but I'm not fit
  13. It's the week leading up to Valentine's Day and for most single people it's the week we dread the most (before weddings and Christmas where nosy aunts ask us when we're getting married). Otherwise couples are fretting over what they should be doing to spoil their significant others to their expectations - chocolates, dates, overpriced roses, sexy underwear, wedding proposals, etc. While gradually catching up on all the articles that i've missed over my vacation, i came across the article on body image and i realised that despite all of the fretting, i haven't really spent a lot of time lov
  14. Hello world of Nerd Fitness! I just recently joined this site in my quest to finally accomplish what I've wanted my whole life. I am a nineteen year old college student studying theatre, with an emphasis in acting, and I aspire to finally be comfortable in my own skin. Around fourth grade I became quite the chunkster, and although through the years I have mostly grown into my body I am still not where I would like to be in terms of my fitness and body image. I started going to the gym regularly 3 to 5 times a week in June of 2013 and have seen results on and off, but I have never been able to
  15. So I watch a *lot* of Netflix. I often try to find a series that has a physically strong/fit female character as an inspiration. I within the last month finished Battlestar Galactica, and Starbuck was my idol. I figured she had the same base body type as me; wide-ish hips and shoulders, not-gigantic-boobs, just much more muscle and far less fat. I mean, I wish my shoulders were rounded and muscled like that. I love the scenes where Kara is working out and doing a bunch of push-ups or something. It makes me want to do that. And then, more recently, my fantasy-netflix-fitness-role-model
  16. Hey y'all! I'm Rose, a college student and nerd that is struggling to get fit. I've been on the chubby side since the fourth grade (I've also been a bit of a bookworm since then too, I'll read any piece of fiction I can get my hands on). I've tried and failed several times to get fit, and I'm hoping y'all can help me out! My Mission: To have a positive self-image, develop healthy habits to bring into the real world, and have the strength to take on the adventure that is life. ​My Motivation: There's two parts to my motivation. One, I want to look good so I can be more confidant and act
  17. So this morning my attention was drawn to this article: http://shine.yahoo.com/healthy-living/swedish-mannequins-cause-a-controversy--192108535.html The TLDR is that there is a shop in Sweden using these mannequins that are supposed to be a more realistic shape. I'm glad this has happened, it would be great to see how clothes are supposed to look on someone that isn't an unrealistic size and shape. I am pretty overweight so most of my shopping is done online, but when I do go to actual shops, I always see mannequins wearing clothes that are pinned, or belted because they are too big ev
  18. I found this project linked on Facebook and thought it looked interesting -- a woman is collecting pictures of women's thighs for a crowdsourcing project and I thought it might be cool if some nerdy lifting women sent pictures of their thighs lifting heavy things. Squats. Deadlifts. Barbell hip thrusts. Lunges. Whatever. Doing non-lifting activities for that matter, but the idea would be to have thighs be in action.
