I Think I Got It

So I did prety well this week....lost 6lbs and I am happy about that. I have not had ANY juice or soda for 9 days...and I am totally ok with that too. I am not craving it at all, and kind of feel like it is not something that is necessary in my life anymore.

I realize that I lost 6lbs and really didn't work out as much as I could have. With that being said, I am really excited about going strong this week and really putting up a big number on Monday. I also vowed that I am only going to weigh myself once a week! The daily fluctuations stress me out and it messes my head up. So once a week is all. I also think that I set more realistic mini goals for myself...which I didn't before.

I just learned to take one day at a time and listen to my body. I find it a lot easier to stay focused about what I eat when I am at work. Strange, I know, because for most it is the opposite. I am just really excited to be serious about meeting my goals and rewarding myself. Because this is definitely a journey....and one that I am so ready to take.

I think the week previosuly where I just wasn't working out or eating right....I just didn't want to do it. I didn't have the desire or get up and go to really do this! So now that I have realized that once I put in the work....things will change and I just have to keep faith in the process.

I also feel that the most important thing is having the faith and confidence in myself that I can do this! And not just that....but that I will do this!

Turning a New Leaf

So I know it has been a long time since I have updated this. But I will say I was on the wagon and then fell off a little...I am happy to report that I didn't gain anything that I have lost so far and I am sitting at 233 as of this morning. I am at the point where I feel like I know that I can't make any excuses about not knowing what to do in order to lose weight, because I have done it before.

I really feel like weight loss is LITERALLY day by day and you have to learn to celebrate the small victories, since it doesn't happen overnight. So my goal now is to just stay consistent with working out 6 times a week and eating my 5 small meals a day. I just have to remind myself that I won't have to do this for the rest of my life!

I will say that when I went to Genie's wedding in September, I wasn't at the wait that I wanted to be at. However, it felt really good for some friends and family to notice that I had lost some weight...even if it only was 20lbs. And now being on I feel like there are people who are counting on me to stay motivated, so that I can keep them motivated.

And more importantly, I have to stay on track for myself. I have seen myself at my absolute worst, and I NEVER want to go back there! I need to let go and give my absolute best every single day, because the rest of my life depends on these next few months.

And Lord knows I am so ready to be happy and to take my life back. Because I know as a child of God..He wants me to be happy, I deserve to be happy...and I am going to WORK until my body hurts
