So... that didn't happen. At all.
It probably won't happen until mid-October in any case, as I have other things I must spend money on other than the necessary bus pass. I also resent needing a bus pass in order to go to the gym. OC Transpo is terrible, and I hate having to rely on it.
In any case, those plans fell through, and I'm feeling like a bit of a failure right now. That's alright. It's not like I'm not exercising at all. I'm still walking to and from work three days a week and swimming and stuff. So there's that. Still, it grates on me a little that I haven't been able to get to the gym.
This is in part because I'm trying really hard to loose weight, but do it healthily this time. I've tried many times before, and none of those attempts were healthy. It ruined my metabolism, and I got very sick for a very long time because of those efforts. I did get a little slimmer, but certainly not healthier.
To that end, if you're struggling with your weight, or your someone who struggles with other people's weight, then you really need to read this article. It's a little triggering, even to me, despite my privilege of being only a little tubby. I can't imagine the trauma of people who are larger than I. It breaks my heart.
Anyway, it's an important read for everyone, large or small.
Now I'm off to get work done.
