Hi! I have known about NerdFitness since it started up, but I have never felt "geek" enough, or "fit" enough to join. Though I have never felt really at home in any other fitness communities either, so, here I am.

 

A little about me.

I'm a teacher at vocational college. Before that I worked at sea. I had an active job, now, not so much.

People always seems very surprised when they find out I'm into gaming, especially when they realize I have been playing WoW since vanilla and dabbled in end-game raiding. 

Nowadays I casually play WoW, especially after I got a new gaming PC, or I play No Man Sky on my PS4, or Zelda or Pokemon on Nintendo switch. 

I love Sci-Fi and fantasy movies, tv-shows and books. I was that girl dressed up as a hobbit when they dropped the LOTR tickets. I occasionally binge watch Firefly, I love Star Trek (But I dont really classify as a trekkie, Like, I can't name every character on the show..). And I was greatly dissapointed with GoT..

 

I have always been chunky, I have never been really skinny, apart from once when I starved myself for weeks and jogged for an hour every day... Do not recommend. Being a geek, a girl and a chonk kinda made me a target at school, but I didn't really mind, I did think of the other kids as losers anyway hah, they didn't even know how to locate the Andromeda galaxy. 

Anyway, I always struggled with my weight, I went on one fad diet after the other, tried everything from zumba to starting strenght. I have really tried anything. Exept a "normal", healthy lifestyle. Which I tbh dont know what is anymore. I keep asking myself "is dis health". I also was in the navy, when I was at the bottom of my fitness level, and I managed great! Haha, fooled them. 

I also recently got diagnosed with ADD, so that explain most of the shit in my life. The medication helps with my binging and I generally feel more motivated, but I am currently just trying to find the right dose, so its not optimal. 

 

Anyway, I'll start my accountability.

I can related to this. I have read so much on healthful eating and am only slowly coming to some tentative conclusions. So many contradictions and controversies. So many false promises. Anyway, I'm sure there are plenty of nerds here who'll be happy to discuss their thoughts on what a healthful diet is and how to shift to one permanently and sustainably.

FWIW I run the forums and I am 300 pounds. It's not about being fit enough, it's about caring enough to work on fitness.

There's no actual entry requirement other than a willingness to work towards becoming healthier and/or more fit.

 

Think of it like doing yoga. You're not required to be super-flexible in order to practice yoga, it's the opposite. You use your yoga practice to increase your flexibility from where you are right now. Same idea, but bigger picture. :) 

 

Welcome to the rebellion!

I can sympathize. I was diagnosed with ADD several years ago and it made a lot of struggles in my life make more sense too. Like how I find if I'm not paying attention I sometimes start snacking because I'm bored even if I'm not at all hungry. Personally, I find knowing and understanding what the problem is can make it much easier to see a way forward.

Yes! When I got the diagnose I just went "wow, this actually explain everything". I can now understand more of why I am like I am as well, like the fact that I am not just lazy, its the ADD giving me troubles. My BF as well says I am different now, in a better way, like its easier to keep up with my line of thoughts. The medication also really helps with the boredom eating!

Hi! It's awesome to meet you! Congrats on getting a diagnosis - it's nice when you get that final piece of the puzzle that makes everything that's happened before make sense 😊 I love the fact that you dressed up as a hobbit to LotR films that's so cool! 😊

Cloaks are a highly underrated piece of clothing! 😆 Also I'm willing to bet there was more than one person who looked at your costume and kicked themselves for not dressing up!
