The Fat : Part Two

I have been completely blown away by all of your beautiful comments, emails and messages in response to Monday's postYou guys!! 

There were messages form so many of you, words of encouragement, even recipe ideas from ex-boyfriends ?!? Anyway, I am just so super grateful for the few moments you have spared to respond to my post. Thank you!


Well it all began this morning. I was awake before the crack of dawn (don't you hate it when you wake up 10 minutes before your alarm?). I'll be honest, I had a moment. Would I or wouldn't I? I changed into my exercise gear and looked out the back door. It was pitch black and raining. That's it, I'm going back inside. As I took off my shoes and socks, I felt that twinge - the twinge of guilt.

'C'mon O'Connor, SUCK IT UP, it's a little bit of rain for goodness sake!' 

If I gave up now, before I had even started, I would feel like a damn fool.

'Think of how it will feel to be running free in the rain, think of the sense of achievement when you've finished'


I was out the door. Next thing I knew, I was at the end of the road running.

There was an encounter with a freshly paved footpath but I did pick myself up - 'soul building' I said to myself.

This is soul building and I like it.


  1. Go you, Amelia! I meant to comment on Monday's post but I read it on my phone and more times than not, commenting on my phone results in me cursing and a comment disappearing into the online abyss. So. What a refreshingly raw post you have written, a lot of the hard work has been done already by verbalising (writing?) it out. Body weight and image is an awful thing. I cannot remember a time when it didn't affect me. You have a whole community rooting for you! The first day (and the rainy days!) are always the hardest.
