Go Becky Go

I'm Becky, 24 year old Florida native living in Colorado. Marathon runner trying to get back into running. I like to lift, and am currently working on "getting back on the wagon" for weight loss. I originally started this blog and lost 25 pounds and kept it off for a long time, then life happened and I'm up higher than my original starting weight. I do Crossfit, also. And I love Harry Potter.

This is not a weight loss blog, it's my blog and I talk about whatever I want including weight loss and food and boys and running and drinking and lots of pictures of myself. I have little to no filter when it comes to the things I say, I am kinda opinionated, so sometimes I'm awkward, but I'm pretty awesome.

Height: 5'2"

HW: 191 lbs

LW: 142 lbs (Sept/2011)

CW: 184.4 lbs (6/2/14)

Goal: to run fast and be healthy.

I love talking to new people, so if you have any questions just ask!

My sister was diagnosed with uterine cancer today.

I think it’s still really early, so there’s a good chance she’ll be fine. But still. Cancer is cancer.

Another thing they said was that she needs to lose weight because of the things they’re going to need to do will require anesthesia and while she’s overweight and has high blood pressure, she’s at a higher risk of things going wrong. So now she’s like, yeah! I need to workout! But of course, she doesn’t go to me. She just decides she needs a treadmill. I recommended that she just try walking outside first, and she’s like, NO. I WANT A TREADMILL I HATE WALKING OUTSIDE. My family doesn’t have the means for a treadmill, she’s having serious issues, and she’s still refusing to use the means that are readily available to her. And I’ve offered to everyone in my family- not just her, that if they’re truly serious about wanting to workout and lose weight and stuff, I’ll help them. I’m no expert, but I’d like to believe I do know my way around a gym and kitchen. But I feel like even with what is going on she still doesn’t care about her health that much. I feel like if I was in some kind of dire situation where I have the power to change things, I would work for that without waiting for the convenience. I just wish there was more I could do.

  3. avocadosandpaisley said: So sorry to hear. There’s nothing more painful that a loved one suffering, especially when they are too stubborn to let you help them.
  4. isprint said: Sorry to hear about your news. Look at it this way, you’ve learned to workout and cook healthy for a special reason, which is her fight. Running all those miles has taught you to conquer adversity, so share it with her. One step at a time.
  5. auspiciousstruggle said: Wow. I’m so sorry. I know its frustrating, how stubborn she’s being. I think that when she’s really ready she’ll come to you.

  12. stephintolife said: Well that sucks.. I think once she starts going through the motions of having cancer she won’t be so flippant about it all

  15. regainingmymoxy said: I am really, really sorry to hear this. That is a scary diagnosis. I hope things are even earlier then the suspected.
  16. lifetoat said: So sorry to hear this. Hope she will be okay. Maybe she’d enjoy some workout DVDs, like dance or Zumba?
