I'm Baaaaaaack!

So once again it has been awhile since I have been able to share.....but I am back and in full effect.

I think I have found something that actually works for me! I found this great website called that allows you to log your daily calories and exercise, as well as gain and give support! I also started a "Mommy Weight Loss" group on I have found that it is even more motivating for oneself when you can motivate and share stories with others that are going through the same struggles and progesses.

I had to step back for a minute and ask myself, "Why am I sabotaging my own happiness and well-being!?" It just didn't make sense. I also had to realize that I had to be my own biggest cheerleader. As much as I want friends and family support with this journey, it is really me and only me that knows what kind of daily sacrifice I go through to stick with it!

Now I try my very best to exercise everyday. I have been waking up at 6:00am to walk 2 miles and then when I get home from work I do 50 minutes of cardio. I force myself to do it, no matter how tired I may be. I had to let go of the excuses and stop beating myself up if I don't do ALL the exercise that I should.

I am now down to 235....which it has been awhile since I have been there....let me tell you.

I just have to take it one day at a time and realize that I CAN DO THIS! You only get one shot at life and I don't want to waste years being unhappy in my own skin...especially when I know that I am a wonderful person on the inside! I want and need the two things to match!

I have also decided that I want to write a book about weight loss for women in their 20's. I have always felt like most books are geared towards 30 to 40 something women. And I definitely feel like women in their 20's go through a different set of struggles because their is so much pressure to look a certain way, when you are in your 20's.....I want to redefine beauty and teach women to celebrate the small things. I want to call my book....."My Biggest Cheerleader"

So these are my new goals:

September 18th-215lbs
November 6th-200lbs.
January 11th-180lbs
March 11th-165-175 range THE ULTIMATE GOAL!!!

  1. This blog and the other writings will be KEY to that book goal, so write as often as you can, and tell us everything, the ups, the downs... even start blogging about stories your friends share about their struggles (if it's okay with them) - I am so excited for you and your success so far. Keep it up!
