Fat Talk

We all do it, whether we want to or not.


I needed to gain weight a few weeks ago, which I have and I feel great and health although as you can imagine it's been a little hard to adjust.

The other night I was lying in bed after having one too many spoonfuls of cashew butter straight out of the jar thinking, why would you do that? I hate myself, I hate my body. Then I stopped... I HATE MY BODY?! After it ran 11 miles for me on Saturday? Well that is just wrong.

Ever since I've put needed weight back on, my ED side has been fat talking in full force. For real ED? After everything else you've put me through now this? So very rude.


We're told to "fight" fat talk, put it down, don't let it creep into your life, don't let others do it around you. But how? How do you knock down that deeply embedded voice in your head telling you you're not good enough?


Athlete's cannot hate their body. Our bodies do too much for us.

What I needed to do was replace the behavior. Now every time I was to say I hate my body I say, for some shallow reason that the world has instilled in me I don't feel like I look good. But I am a strong runner and not everyone can say that!

This morning I had planned on a random bike workout but I ended up doing 15 minutes of random and 45 minutes of intervals with a 5 minute cool down. DSCI0002.JPG

I'm out of peta =(. So before I had some whole wheat toast with laughing cow and fruit spread


Breakfast was a yogurt bowl with banana, blueberries, raw oats, kashi honey sunshine, cashew and almond butter and honey drizzle.



How do you fight fat talk?

Do you read beauty magazines or do you avoid them?


  1. I am definitely guilty of fat talking, but running has really helped. Ironically I have gained quite a bit of weight since I started running, but when l look at my running achievements, I feel so proud of my body!

  2. i love THIS!! you are so strong and wise!!

  3. It's so great that you're fighting the fat talk instead of letting it take over!! :)

  4. Fat talk is definitely hard to ignore, but you can fight it girl, you're beautiful!
