What the Censoring Fatty?!

I have a question for you guys. What do you think about Blog Censorship? Do you guys feel like you can be 100 percent upfront, open, and in your face with your blogs or do you edit out things you really do want to say but don't want to offend people or what not? I know that was a major run on question but really, what do you think?

In the past I have not edited anything to make things easy for someone else because this is MY blog.  This is where I vent and journal and feel like I can be me without having to apologize. I have however, toned down the politics quite a bit and I try to be a little more mellow.

Lately, I have been getting numerous anonymous posters talking lots of shiznit about Mr. Superman, his being in the military, my talk of my infertility, and really negative and oft times derogatory comments. Most I don't publish and I don't dignify them with a response but what about you guys? What do you do?

I think that in my Answer post from the Q&A I will answer every question and comment I have gotten just so I can have piece of mind about these idiots. The way I see it is if you want to be a jerk and be completely negative, have the gumption and balls to do so without hiding. Really? You want to talk badly about me and about my life but you aren't brave enough to do it straight forward? Step up for real.

Alright now that that's out there, here is what's been weighing on my mind lately. Ha ha well more like weighing all over me. My weight. I have always been really self conscious and super self critical. Since meeting Mr. Superman, I've felt better about myself and my self perception has improved a bit. There have been a few times where I all of the sudden will gain weight without any changes in my diet or exercise. Usually when I notice, I'll up my activity level and I will drop back down to my normal weight. Now in the last year, I have had a few operations, went through something extremely personal that tore me apart,  have moved 2,000 miles away, started school, and am trying desperately to balance life. A little stress weight is to be expected I think but this is insane.

I am at my ALL TIME HEAVIEST and it has been a huge downer for me. I thought it would be like every other time I lose weight. NEGATORY GOOD BUDDY. I have cut out soda, tried to have smaller portions, drink lots of water, and have worked out for at least an hour every day for the last 2.5 weeks. Guess what? I haven't even lost half a pound. Its getting under my skin so bad. There have been other times I thought I was chunky but I see pictures from then and I just wanna cry because I was so skinny and fit and had a great body. Needless to say I have had a major wake up call and once I get back to my healthy weight, I will be content. Once I am back to my healthy weight, I won't be saying I'm fat because I now realize I wasn't. I guess all I can do is keep working out everyday and pray it starts working soon 'cause 25 el bees is A LOT.

This is me now

This is what I want so desperately to be again.

Thanks for letting me whine a bit. You guys are the best. Happy Thursday! (The beginning of my weekend, yes Sweet Mary!!)

I stopped letting anonymous a-holes post comments. It's not worth the headache.

Losing weight is hard. Just keep at it and it will happen.

As far as the censorship, I don't really censor much of what I say. I just don't write about stuff that I know my husband wouldn't want me to.

Don't worry about the haters... They are everywhere, and they are cowards - that's why they are anonymous. They aren't worth it, so don't let them get to you!

As far as the weight goes... I'm right there with you! I have learned a lot about getting back into shape and healthy. Basically, I just cut my calories per day and burn between 250-500 calories during my workouts. A lb. or 2 loss per week is normal and healthy. My husband pulled up excel and used the formula to figure out how much I need to eat/exercise each day/week to lose the amount that I want to lose.

Don't worry! You will get it! Stress is hard on the body and weight loss, but if you keep with it, you will see some results!

Just keep working at it girl, you will get to where you want to be! And I think you're hot stuff!

And yay for Jenn! :)

Not sure what is up lately with rude anonymous blogger comments. You are the second person in a day to have this issue. Gosh- people are just so rude.

Only censor yourself if it makes you feel more comfortable. Otherwise just let your writing flow. If you censor then you are going to spend too much time rereading what you wrote and figuring out what you should change. BE YOURSELF_ this is YOUR spot not any one elses. :-)

I agree with the ones who said that you shouldn't allow anonymous comments! If they want to be rude and nasty, then they should have the guts to put their name to it. If they don't, they are not worth you giving one second of your time worrying about what they think! You have had a bad year- no doubt about it and personally I think you look fabulous! Just keep doing what you're doing and it will all work out. Ignore the jerks and listen to those who love you and who are your fans!!! And there are lots of us!

The anonymous people are childish and immature. Let them be and just move past it. You are obviously better than them and stronger than them, so it's whatever.. no worries. This is your blog and if they don't like, they don't have to read it.

I definitely do not censor my blog. I protect myself and my family, but if I have something to say, I say it. You should feel the same way without feeling guilty later on.

Next, try some interval training in your workouts. Try in some weight machines and aerobic stretches. This will help you out a whole lot. The interval training will change up your pace and heart rate so your body doesn't get use to it. The weights will allow you to build muscle and get toner, which will help lose the fat. And the aerobic stretches will help your blood flow. Try a no to low carb diet just for about a 2 to 4 weeks and see what you think. After that you can do it again or drop it. That will help jump start your weight loss. If you want anymore advice, look me up. I am a personal trainer and major fitness junkie :)

I hate the rude blogger comments! And I definitely don't think you should censor yourself because of them!

As for the dieting, I feel ya, and I need to get on my workouts again. Jillian Michaels has some awesome ones, and the 30 day shred is insane and should definitely help!

I hate you are getting anonymous people posting comments. I have those turned off on mine. Sometimes I care a little too much what people think..and if I had those on mine, I would probably cry if I got a mean comment.

I really don't censor myself. I try to be genuine and honest in what I post.
