    Let’s try this again.

    I fell completely off the wagon.  School got crazy, life got crazy, and i forgot this existed.  In that time i’ve gained more weight, but i’ve also lost a little the past month. I’m nowhere near where i want to be, but i know i can be.  I’ve recently gotten into beachbody, and i’m getting ready to start a T25 challenge group.  It will last 10 weeks.  I’ve got my program ready, and my Shakeology on standby. I plan to update daily, and post about how it’s going.  I also plan on posting about school.  I’ve finally set a wedding date! July 25 2015 is the big day!  My goals before then are to reach 180 lbs, right now i weigh 220.  I’ve lost 8 lbs the past month. I also want to complete a half marathon.  I keep saying i’m going to do one, then i never do. So I want to do this for me and for Michael.  He’s been super supportive and i want to show him his support wasn’t wasted.

    "Gentlemen. This is what rape culture is like:

    Imagine you have a Rolex watch. Nice fancy Rolex, you bought it because you like the way it looks and you wanted to treat yourself. And then you get beaten and mugged and your Rolex is stolen. So you go to the police. Only, instead of investigating the crime, the police want to know why you were wearing a Rolex instead of a regular watch. Have you ever given a Rolex to anyone else? Is it possible you wanted to be mugged? Why didn’t you wear long sleeves to cover up the Rolex if you didn’t want to be mugged?

    And then after that, everywhere you go, there are constant jokes about stealing your Rolex. People you don’t even know whistle at your Rolex and make jokes about cutting your hand off to get it. The media doesn’t help either; it portrays people who wear Rolexes as flamboyant assholes who secretly just want someone to come along and take that Rolex off their hands. When damn, all you wanted was to wear a nice watch without getting harassed for it. When you complain that you are starting to feel unsafe, people laugh you off and say that you are too uptight. Never mind you got violently attacked for the crime of wearing a friggin time piece.

    Imagining all that? It sucks, doesn’t it.

    Now imagine you could never take the Rolex off. "
