I haven't blogged in over a week.. pretty insane for me BUT.. I'm in that blogging funk again.. where I feel like I've lost my relatability factor. Like I've been kicked out of the fat girl club and now no matter what I say... people are just going to roll their eyes and tell their computer screen that I couldn't possibly know how they feel! It's been a week. Not good.. not horrible.. just keepin' on.

hmmm, I never really thought of it that way. In fact I came to look at your blog to get some encouragement. i even thought about calling you - but homework won out again. This week is crazy but the next one should be good. We should get together when the weather is nice - at a park or something. I have a little 2 year old every day (and sometimes I have two 2-year olds.)

btw, I think its good that you review all comments on the main blog before posting them.

Kari, while it is hard to imagine you ever being in the "fat girl club" I know you've been there. So I think you are way more relatable to us "fat chicks" , LOL. While mentally you are in a place that is far from where I am I do know that your journey over the past year in loosing near 100 lbs is encouraging to those of us who still have 100lbs to lose. Keep your spirits up, you are inspiring more people than you've ever imagined or known.

We can't look at your pictures and possible think you don't know how we feel. Trust me, you are VERY relevant. =)

Oh sweetie. Don't think that way. I care what you say. I miss your spirit and spunk. I actually went looking for a new blog post the other day since I had not heard from you in a while.

Ok seriously. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but you're not in the club anymore. The thing is, and i know you know this, it really is hard to see you as the fat karilynn that used to drink Dr. Pepper and milk with ice in it by the gallon!!! Nothing about who you are now is even close to who you were then (at least when it comes to health and nutrition). HOWEVER, the archiving... the pictures... all the gental reminders that tell remind us how far you've come is still SO INCREDIBLY impactful! The biggest difference is now we all put you on a pedistal... you're not in the "fat girl" club anymore because you graduated! you got the diploma and we're all striving to succeed the way you have.
Worry not though, we will never stop reading your blog or being inspired by you because you're not just one step ahead of us... you've been exactly where we each stand today.

(and for the record we all secretly value your comments the most and i'm pretty sure we all think that you think that "I" am your favorite contestant!)

ok, so i'm seriously horrible at spelling as we can all see and i hope that you understood by that last comment that the "i" was not in refference to me personally but each of us as individuals. oh heck... it's late!

I have been meaning to comment on your blog for a while. I have thought about this post since you posted it. I have to tell you that I had read up on your blog just a week or so before this post. I had thought in my head, "she's already there, what can she know about where I am. Maybe if we were at the same point in our journeys it would be different." Then the next time I read this I laughed about it ALL DAY!

Then I started to think about that for myself. I've lost 78 pound and have 74 left to go. . .so even though I've lost a lot I'm still definitely in the "fat girl" club. I can imagine that it is much more difficult to find people in your new club, the "used to be fat girl" club. I can appreciate your journey and the feeling of not quite fitting in where you used to. I will be watching more to see how you deal with this step in your journey because I'm sure I will feel the same way in about 75 pounds. :)

Thanks for posting!
