My Fittest Loser trainer, Michelle, called me last night, and I can’t wait to start working with her! She seems like she’s going to be both nice and very motivational. I’m very excited to meet her in person and get this challenge going!
The one downside to our conversation: apparently the contestants’ “before” pics will be taken in WHITE TANK TOPS. I haven’t worn a tank top since I was about 18 and at least 40 pounds lighter. Where does a plus-size girl even find a white tank top? I have a white cami from Lane Bryant, but that is spandex-y and will absolutely not be seen in the light of day unless it’s under a sweater.
So, today is workout gear shopping day. I need a couple of pairs of pants (of the three I have, one has holes, one is too short and one is too big–woo hoo on that last one!). I also need two sports bras and that dreaded tank top. Here’s hoping I can find it all!
Next Friday, the Daily Hearald will be coming to my house to shoot some video. I am really nervous. Since I was about 12, I’ve refused to watch myself on video. I can’t take it. Even when I’m thinner, I don’t know if I’ll be able to do it. So, knowing that the whole world will have access to videos of me on YouTube is just a wee bit daunting.
That said, I am going to try to embrace this whole thing. I’ll go buy that tank top and I’ll smile big for the camera. This is an incredible opportunity and I want to savor every (mortifying, torturous, fabulous) moment.
