    So, recently, I have been trying to gain fat

    Recent Struggles

    Climbing stairs has became increasingly hard for me as up late, weighing in at 435lb, you can see why. My feeder thinks I think I may need to invest in a stair lift :)

    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...

    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 with me passing the 450 point I have noticed

    that climbing even a flight of stairs brings me too an exhausting point like no other. I have to stop to take a few minute breather just because it's so exhausting. It's definitely making me think other wise about ever climbing stairs again. No use in wasting precious calories...
