Ok so I was doing good for a while. I lost about 18 lbs but somehow I gained it and then some back. So this is definitely not a good thing. I stopped exercising for about two weeks, got sick, now it’s time to get back on track.
Some things and goals I have this week include ditching all soda and alcohol, cardio 5 days a week minimum and at least 2/3 weight training sessions.
How I plan to stay motivated….well I decided to track other successful weight loss bloggers and their successes and motivational stories, keep a daily food journal, and no more shopping when hungry. No more fast foods. I have to have at least one cheat day to reward myself for staying on track though. I decided to post this list on the mirror where I look every so often throughout the day oh wait, snap, the frig is an even better place because I go there more often. Well this is my update as to where I am with my weight loss journey. I am still working at the little lifestyle changes that can add up to losing more weight and keeping it off. Be on the lookout this week for my photos. I am now at 174 lbs. Yikes, I am only 5’2 so that makes me obese. Obesity runs in my family on my dads side. Black people love to eat a lot of fried foods and I have a big family who welcome you with food when you first walk in the door which makes it harder sometimes too. On my Asian side who I have not met in person yet everyone is skinny. For years I was blessed with being on this side of genetics but unfortunately after my last pregnancy, the 25 extra pounds seem to just want to hang on. So I will keep yall updated with my progress this week.
