Not so much a phrase, but I always wear black when I work out. It’s like a funeral for my fat.

Bonus fitspo: Sharee Hansen,, who was as high as 256 lbs at 5’ 8”. Not fitness competitor-like, but it just goes to show how amazing you can look, even coming down from such a high weight, and even before her tummy tuck/thigh lift. She documents everything (including lots of before, after, and during photos) on her blog, Funeral For My Fat: http://funeralformyfat.tumblr.com/
