  1. Hullo. Me again. Doesn't matter if you don't know who I am. I've been back and forth on the Rebellion forums for years and it has always done me good to keep my life in balance. I haven't been around for a while because life's been crazy and I found myself "accidentally" ignoring the forums and my challenge goals. Other things to do. But now I feel like I need the structure of the challenges again to reboot the end of my year and stop this little funk I've been in for the last month or so. Stuff about me in general:

  3. Ok, here it goes. I'm going to lay it all out here, hoping that someone has gone through the same things and can offer advice or support. I'm hesitant to post my fears online but everyone seem helpful here and I've gotten a lot more hope after starting to read Steve's book. I have been a quitter of most things all my life, that's pretty sad considering I'm 32 years old now. I'll be all "gung-ho" at first and really work at it, say eating better or exercising five days a week, and then I'll just stop after a few weeks or a few months. I start to see some good results and I just stop
  4. Hello fellow nerd fitness members! It's me again, off to be an adventurer and tackle the world. Much to the dismay of some of my fellows, I've disappeared for a few days because, alas, my medication got out of whack and I got a very rude reminder that taking care of myself is paramount to being a healthy person. So! This has actually colored how I'm going to tackle this challenge. This six week challenge is a little more like a three week challenge, since I disappeared into the ether and kept some people guessing. So, given the nature of this challenge and its suuuuuper short duration, I
  5. 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
  6. Self-Love Last week I read a book called "Wie's weitergeht, wenn nichts mehr geht" by Jens Baum. The title can be translated as: "How things are going on when nothing's going on anymore". One chapter of this book is about self-love. Jens Baum says: "Self-love is a mindful, caring, respectful, responsible and loving relationship with oneself." He sees two positive aspects in having self-love: You don't burden your friends and family with responsibility for your well-being anymore. You are feeling better, because you can take care of yourself most effective.Jens says self-love has nothing t
  7. 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
  8. I'm a 41 year old female, and my weight has been up and down a lot, but I've remained obese since about my mid-20s. I don't know precisely when I truly became overweight - starting around the time that I was about 12 or 13 (basically puberty), I got told by my parents that I "would be so pretty, if only you would lose a few pounds." I remember being a freshman in high school and being within the average weight range for my height according to the BMI, but believing that wearing size 12 jeans meant I was fat. Oh, to fit into those size 12's again. At some point in college, while STILL hearing t
  9. I wish I had a Beauty and the Beast gif right now. "Flabby, fat, and lazy" pretty much describes me to a T. This is my 5th challenge and I'm still trying to figure out how to make my healthy habits stick. Womp womp. This time I'm going with easy things that won't shake up my life too drastically but will still help me see results. So! Fun stuff: Main Quest: Lose 10 pounds Goal 1: Eat 1504 calories per day (+3 CON) Based on IIFYM.Will be tracked on MyFitnessPal. Come say hi and call me out on bad life choices!Depending on how hard/often I exercise, I may up this to net calories to compensa

    Haku loves Haku

    Haku loves Haku - 5th challenge So here we are again. I'm 10 days late, I know, so my challenge will be a whole lot shorter in being present, but nonetheless I have started with this challenge a few days earlier than the 9th of June. The reason for me being late is that I have been on holiday for almost 2 weeks. I've been in France (in the Provence, only a few metres away from Lac du St Croix) and in Luxembourg (in Esch-sur-Sûre) and it was amazing. France brought a loooot of sun, so I'm nicely tanned. You can clearly see where my bikini sat on my body. Durrr! (Pictures from the holiday wil
  11. Hi y'all! My name is Bekah and I finally picked a guild. I got really comfortable as an Adventurer, but it was time to stop learning and start training. Princesses aren't able to kill people automatically yanno? So here I am. I'm 35, a mom of 2 teenagers, 5'3" and 242lbs. I'm very positive about everything but my own strengths, and I like helping people. I'm also part Druid, so I tend to have a lot of introspection and live in my head a bit. I love learning new things, especially about people different from me and other religions and cultures. I love books, The Legend of Zelda, Biology, Socio
  12. Hey. So, here is the issue I am having. I have been on a 9 month journey to lose 60 pounds. At my last doctor's appointment, the staff didn't recognize me (literally). I want to push the envelope and become a warrior. I want to do things I have never been able, or scared to do before (my brother and I are planning a rafting trip to West Virginia). Here are my issues: 1. My husband has never had a weight problem in his life, and lives on Mountain Dew and Little Debbies. 2. He has spent the last 12 years trying to convince me that I am not strong enough to do anything without him. 3.
