This was my first time trying Pasta Zero. I tossed it in alfredo sauce and Italian sausage (tofurky). I expected it to be squishy, but it was very firm. It was almost a calamari consistency. Maybe i didn’t cook it right? I would buy it again.

I’ll buy it again. There is a chance I didn’t cook it long enough. It was still good though. :)

The absolute most frequent question I receive from people starting their weightloss journey is regarding excess skin.

How can you avoid it? Do you have any? I’m afraid of it, were you?? What does yours look like etc etc etc.

Soooo here I am in all my lovely 5 am pre long run glory. You can see a photo of my lovely tummy here…

(And FYI I kept the bikini.)

So here’s the facts… YES, I most certainly do have excess skin. I wish I didn’t have it, but I also wish it didn’t bug me. I’m so much more than the skin, I’m a daughter and a sister and a friend and a wife, things that have actual meaning in life. And BENEATH that extra skin I’m strong, and healthy and capable of so much more than overweight Jessica ever thought was possible. The fact remains that I would take saggy skin over being unhealthy and overweight like I was before any day. I’ve worked so incredibly hard to get to where I am, and while sometimes I think it’s almost unfair that I’m not 100% satisfied with my body, I’m not sure if anyone (besides perhaps a Victoria Secret model) truly is. My body may not be picture perfect, and like any other woman I have insecurities about it, but as I said before beneath it I am stronger and healthier than ever. One of my new years resolutions is to love my body more, and it’s something I work on every day. Don’t be afraid of excess skin, it’s a constant reminder of how incredibly far I’ve come and how hard I’ve worked to get here.

❤️❤️❤️

Reblog if you do too. Just to prove that it is more normal than what people actually think.

I’m not going to lie, I completely phoned it in today. I feel like poo and am so tired, but I figured a half hearted workout was better than nothing! 😊😣😌💤

So, I hurt my foot a little and am taking it easy (feet elevated), but I love my new shoes too much to not wear them!!! ^_^

Look at what they thought women would be wearing nowadays. 
I love this. 

I’m still 1950’s height! Lol That 2000’s chick looks badass though.

Hey, Out of Shape Girl.

Yes, you. The one feigning to not see me when we cross paths on the running track. The one not even wearing sports gear, breathing heavy. You’re slow, you breathe hard and your efforts at moving forward make you cringe.

You cling shyly to the furthest corridor, sometimes making larger loops on the gravel ring by the track just so you’re not on it. You sweat so much that your hair is all wet. You rarely stay for more than 20 minutes at a time, and you look exhausted when you leave to go back home. You never talk to anyone. I’ve got something I’d like to say to you.

You are awesome.

If you’d look me in the eye only for an instant, you would notice the reverence and respect I have for you. The adventure you have started is tremendous; it leads to a better health, to renewed confidence and to a brand new kind of freedom. The gifts you will receive from running will far exceed the gigantic effort it takes you to show up here, to face your fears and to bravely set yourself in motion, in front of others.

You have already begun your transformation. You no longer accept this physical state of numbness and passivity. You have taken a difficult decision, but one that holds so much promise. Every hard breath you take is actually a tad easier than the one before, and every step is ever so slightly lighter. Each push forward leaves the former person you were in your wake, creating room for an improved version, one that is stronger, healthier and forward-looking, one who knows that anything is possible.

You’re a hero to me. And, if you’d take off the blaring headphones and put your head up for more than a second or two, you would notice that the other runners you cross, the ones that probably make you feel so inadequate, stare in awe at your determination. They, of all people, know best where you are coming from. They heard the resolutions of so many others, who vowed to pick up running and improve their health, “starting next week”. Yet, it is YOU who runs alongside, who digs from deep inside to find the strength to come here, and to come back again.

You are a runner, and no one can take that away from you. You are relentlessly moving forward. You are stronger than even you think, and you are about to be amazed by what you can do. One day, very soon, maybe tomorrow, you’ll step outside and marvel at your capabilities. You will not believe your own body, you will realize that you can do this. And a new horizon will open up for you. You are a true inspiration.

I bow to you.
