Its Been A Long Time

Wow....I cant believe that I havent been here for 5 months already! Well to catch all of you up to speed. I moved to Atlanta, GA in January...and absolutely hated it at first. I still kind of dislike it, but since I have been out here visiting Cali for the past month...its not so bad LOL. No, but really. In the month of April I started working out more vigorously and more intensely..I changed my diet completely and was working out literally three times a day to pre-recorded workouts on my cable's ON DEMAND. It helped so much! The first week I lost 5lbs! I felt that I had more energy during the day, and just felt completely better.

I ended up coming to Cali at the end of April, and I am still here. So no working out and no eating right because my grandparents LOVE to cook! But its ok, I havent gained any of the weight back that I lost. But now I feel like I am eager to get back to Atlanta and continue what I started and what I was doing so well at.

I read this book by Chantel Hobbs "Never Say Diet Again" it was amazingly inspiring because this woman lost 200lbs on her own...with no surgery, pills, etc. I think that was the ultimate for me. Because if she could have the will power to lose that much weight after having 3 kids...there was really no excuse why I couldnt do the same.

So Im not going to beat myself up for not working out since I have been out here. I just know that I have a few months until one of my best friend's weddings and I definitely have to be down 50lbs by then! No excuses...and I am ok...because I know I can do it.

Its time to take my life back, one step at a time.
