    So I haven't taken the stairs at work in about

    60 pounds, but the elevator was being worked on today so I had no other option. I've always thought of myself as a "fit" fat girl, but evidently I need to revise that opinion. I work on the second floor and felt like I was going to pass out by the time I made it to my office...

    So, recently, I have been trying to gain fat

    and lose muscle. I've been successful! My belly has grown by 2 inches, my arms hang down a lot more, and my thighs are HUGE! My XL clothes are starting to look a tiny bit snug on me. Before my winter weight gain, I could run up 3 flights of stairs at 3 steps a second and not get...

    My Arch Nemesis

    Stairs have always been my arch nemesis. I've never been able to make it up a flight of steps without losing my breath. Now I often find myself stopping every couple steps or so in order to catch my breath. At such a large weight, it is difficult to hoist myself up stairs...

    I Used To Dance???

    To think I used to dance and now I'm tired just climbing a flight of stairs! I wish my dance teacher could see me now! She would be so disgusted it would be hillarious. She hates fat people. She is the total opposite of me. I love my blubber :)

    I job shadowed at a nearby school today.

    Unfortunately this school has 11 floors and I was on every single one at some point. Because I'm not in a wheel chair or on crutches or very old, I got to take the stairs. The first class I observed was on the ninth floor. I counted the amount of steps on each flight and there...
