What Used to Be: About the Fit Fat Girl

The Artist Formerly Known as the Fit Fat Girl is me. But then I wrote this when I decided I wanted to be ME instead of some persona focused on losing weight or whatever.

Here’s the old “About” section from the Fit Fat Girl blog:

Well hi there. I’m Stephanie, and it’s no secret from the title of this blog that I’m fat. For now. I’m on what I sometimes refer to as a journey to badassery–transforming my mind and body to be strong and powerful. I started the blog as a way to keep myself accountable, and possibly to motivate and inspire others to take healthy action.

If you’re going to pop in from time to time, you should know that I am sometimes irreverent. I may swear. I will not sugarcoat stuff and I will definitely not do the whole “I’m okay, you’re okay, so let’s congratulate ourselves for being mediocre” thing. That’s not how I roll.

So if you’re looking for a pill, shake, quick fix or anything like that, I don’t use them, I don’t have them, I don’t sell them and I don’t believe in them. But I believe in myself, and I believe in hard work and persevering through the long haul to reach my goals. I hope you’ll join me.

DISCLAIMER: I am not a doctor. I am not a trainer. I am not a nutritionist. I am not a psychologist, a fortune teller, or a swami either. I take advice from people who are, though (well, to be honest, I don’t know any swamis…), and you should do the same if you’re on a fitness journey like me.

I did transfer all the old blog posts from the Fit Fat Girl here, so anything you read from before 2014 is from the FFG. Fair warning: some of it is potentially annoying and self-righteous. Some of it is overly focused on weight loss and food, bordering on obsession.

If you want to read what I consider to be the BEST posts from the FFG days, check these out:

  2. I love the way you describe your outlook on your journey. I can relate to many of your “revelations” and I agree it is a process. It is amazing what can be accomplished if you set your mind and body to it. In the past 2 years, I have achieved many physical challenges that have carried over to success in our areas of my life…carry on the fight…good luck…work hard!!!

  3. Hi Steph! We’ve never met, but I’m a fellow Tuff Girl, and I gotta say many of your posts are really resonating with me. As a fellow writer, I also have to say that you are doing an amazing job with this blog. I think you’re hilarious and spot on and I can’t wait to read more!

    • Hi Joy! Thanks so much for reading and your kind compliments. 🙂 Glad you are finding them relatable, and I hope to see you at class sometime. I’m a morning girl…how about you?

      • Two weeks later I am replying to your comment, because I am right on top of things, apparently. I hope to meet you too, but alas, I love the night life. You go at dark thirty, and I just can’t imagine that right now. Someday I want to try it. Maybe we’ll meet at some TG function/ race / whatever- I’ll be sure to introduce myself and say hello!
