Healthy Liz

Having struggled with my weight for years, I have made the switch to Tumblr in the hopes of finding an amazing network of friends and support to stick to my weight loss this time around.


Also, I wish I could add all of you back! This blog is a sub-blog of my main one and so I can't add anyone. But, if you want, I'm more than happy to give you my main blog!

I'm 5'6 :)
HW: 295
GW: 200
UGW: 140 (ish - I'll see how I feel when I get there!)

I suffer from chronic back pain. I'm working with a chiropractor and massage therapist(s) to improve muscle strength and flexibility.

Hiya!  

Okay ladies, I’ve got a question for you.  I need bra recommendations.  

I wear plus size (I wear a size 44 bra band) but I’ve got fairly small tatas (I’m a B cup, and…if I’m honest, I could probably get away with some larger A cups).  My problem is that most of the bras that are big enough to fit around me are designed for women with larger boobs.  Retailers have gotten better; I never used to be able to find any bras in a B cup at all.  But I don’t need all of the extra support.  I just don’t need it.  Bras end up having all this extra fabric/padding in the upper part of my boob that doesn’t fit right under shirts.  Do any of you have this problem?  

I’m looking for a bra with a bigger band but with more of a standard size look in the cups.  Any suggestions?

wtfplus:

i decided to compile a list of plus size stores with a little blurb, their size range, and their price range as a resource for you butts. i apologize that this list is very US-centric and very ‘feminine’-centric (i looked super hard for gender neutral and ‘masculine’ plus clothes…

Zumba time (number 2)

Here is my second full zumba workout. I improved the quality. But the upload process was taking sooo long, so i removed the HD option. The  video is a bit grainy, but the sound quality and overall picture is a HUGE improvement to the first one.

SO ENJOY!

The list of songs can be found on the youtube video page. 

**this will NOT work on mobile devices, ipods, ipads, or youtube that runs on the mobile app through a t.v. I do not control that, it’s YOUTUBE music rights. Also because of those music rights, this will not play in every country. Primarily European countries. I can not control that either**

Simply Be Giveaway 

Yay! I’m so excited to announce a Simply Be giveaway to celebrate my 2 year blog anniversary! Keep reading to find out how to win this outfit in your size!

Simply Be is one of my favorite retailers because of their amazingly big variety of pieces. When I saw this shirt covered in branches I immediately knew that it belonged in my closet. I decided to build my outfit around this top and wanted to pair it with a skirt. This short wine colored skirt seemed like the perfect way to break out of my all black everything routine that I’ve been indulging in lately.

In my opinion almost every outfit can use a great jacket to tie it all together! This open front faux leather jacket is just what I was looking for to complete the look and it is so versatile I know that it will be a repeat offender in my daily wardrobe.

One lovely person will win this outfit from Simply Be!

ZUMBA VIDEO!!! 55 minutes of zumba! YAY!!!

Picture/sound qauiilty will be improved by the time I make another one.

Hi lovelies!

Ok. This is it. I am going to the UK in 46 days. I have 46 days to fit into the one pair of jeans I have and fit better into my new raincoat.

I have always worked best with many short goals and I think this is what I need to stay focused. Ever since I bought my raincoat in June, I knew I wanted to drop a few pounds to fit into it better. I feel like I dropped the ball on this one - I have no idea where the time has gone! All I know is that I’ve been gaining weight like crazy this summer. And it needs to stop.

In the next 6 weeks I hope to lose 10 pounds. This is doable, but it won’t be easy. I’m still debating whether or not to use Sparkpeople, Fitocracy, MyFitnessPal, or another online/mobile weight loss aid. Let me know what you guys use! I’m really interested in a community!

Talk soon

Hey!  I thought I told you guys to yell at me if I wasn’t posting on here…. bad followers!  Just kidding… bad me!  

The problem is that I’m soooo not motivated.  But I feel disgusting.  I don’t know what to do.  I need help guys.  

Please please please give me any resources you have!  I’d love to take a look.  Also, any blogs that are really great - send ‘em my way! 

I’m going to try to blog everyday.

Hi. Hi guys.

So…things have happened…

I graduated from college a few weeks ago, and I just celebrated my 22nd birthday and I’ve been celebrating and not keeping track of anything in my life…and it’s finally caught up with me. I feel disgusting and slow and tired. I’ve been putting off stepping on a scale because I knew I gained weight. But there’s a point. There’s a point where you just can’t deal with yourself anymore and knowing you need to do something but can’t bring yourself to start.

Starting over, I think, is the hard part. I’ve started over so many times, and yet here I am. I just don’t want this to be ANOTHER failure.

But what’s the alternative? Get fat and even more unhappy.

So, here we go…

Starting weight: 288.4 lbs
Ultimate goal weight: 150 lbs

Come on ladies! I know I can’t do this alone. If anyone wants to work together, please get it touch!

I know this blog has been pretty inactive lately, but I NEED this to keep myself accountable. If you notice me not updating, yell at me! We can do this!

pretty accurate ^^

The tricky thing about yoga is that you think you do it exactly as the instructor and then you see yourself in the mirror and be like LOL NO.
