So well, I don't think that I have ever truly done a before blog before. I am not going to make all these lavish promises to myself. All I can do is try and be determined to finally do what I have been saying I wanted to do for the past many years. I have started to learn that I am doing this more for me, I want to be able to do achieve things that I want to do.

Here is starts. I officially restarted this journey in January but truly started on February 1, 2014. You maybe wondering why I didn't start it has my new years resolution, it's because in order for this to work and for me to stick to it, I have to look at it not so much as a diet but as a lifestyle change which I am embracing. I have so much love for myself now and I realize that I am worth it. I have finally gotten into this head space where I know I love myself and I can it with hard work and determination. I have to clear out the negativity in my life and in my mind in order for me to be successful at this major change in my life. the last few years have been crazy and I have been super stressed about everything and anything, I have realized that I can't change what will happen so there is no reason to stress over things that I have no control over. You have to continue to just live life and that is all you can do. I can't let the small things hold me back. I know that I can do this and I will do this.

Here is my before pictures. Official before weight is 235.4 pounds. Crazy that I am this weight but once I lose it, I am not trying to ever find it again.

My plan right now that I am doing is starting to count calories in and calories out and to do that I am using my bodyfit media again which I loved and will continue to use until I hit my goal and maintain. for breakfast and lunch I will have a meal replacement shake with or without fruit (I will be running out of the shake that I have to add fruit to it soon so yeah). Dinners will consist of Lean cuisines for the time being. This is the only way that I know I can track everything that I am eating and/or drinking. I am also drinking green tea with acv and honey before every meal and after dinner as well. I am going to get my water in even if its with or without a flavor. I know water is important so I am going to get mine in. I will also be adding some chis seeds with my water a few times a day. For snack I will have yogurt with or without fruit, string cheese, or some kind of power bar. On the weekends I probably won't be as strict but I will keep within my calorie realm

As far exercise go, I will get whatever workout I can in everyday if possible. I am going to join Curves soon and that makes me happy because I really enjoyed going there years and years ago. I have a calendar that I will keep track of the days I workout and my weight that way I have something to look back to when I lose the weight and see how far I have come.

I am just trying to find something that works for me. What I do may not work for others just as what other do probably won't work for me. I am just doing the best that I can to succeed. So, hope to add some people along this journey that way we aren't alone in this. Have a great day or night. Later

OAN: I redid my board and this is now how it looks. I will update it every week and show my progress I am making in my lifestyle change!

Here I go! emoticon emoticon

    I love your motivational board!

I also like that you're trying to find positive things that work for you. I think most of us tweak whatever meal plan we're on to make it suit our individual needs better. I know I do!

Best of luck on your journey. YOU CAN DO IT!

Knee Surgery! Say What!

Friday, June 21, 2013

First off let me say that I didn't make it to the gym today because I forgot my lock for my locker and I don't trust people to leave my stuff in the locker without a lock. So I now have a lock and I am ready to go.

This past Wednesday I went to a Orthopedic Surgeon and well, it looks like I am going to have surgery. I don't know when yet but I am going to have a MRI done on my knee to see exactly what is going on. I have been having problems with it and I am glad to know that there maybe relief soon, well in the next few months. Anyone who knows me knows that I don't like surgery and I am thankful that this an outpatient surgery because I get to go home at the end of the day! Yeah and I don't have to cook for awhile. LOL. I want to be pain free in that knee and I then can worry about my health a little more.

Before surgery though I would love to lose at least 20 to 25 pounds. So, right now that is my current goal. I need a way to figure out how to get my thighs a little small too that way the brace fits better and weird like the current I have does. I don't even wear it because my thighs are too big and they don't seem to have a different one that will fit nicely around my thigh. So hopefully with losing weight my boobs and my thighs will decide to get smaller too.

Well, I am tired. Goodnight everyone. Have a nice evening! Have a great Friday! Tomorrow I will Vlog because its been awhile since I have. Nighty Night!

Back to the Gym!

Thursday, June 20, 2013

Well the last few days I have been avoiding going back even though I got a new membership to a new gym. I think I am afraid to of success. I don't know because I do want this more than anything. I need this. I hate my thighs and I hate this huge stomach, I hate having large boobs. I just want to be again. The me I was comfortable in. This body has weight me down for too long and well tomorrow I am getting off my behind and hitting the gym. No more excuses. I love myself and I need to do this so I can love me for all that I have accomplished. My first goal is to lose 40 pounds. This will put me in onederland. Well, here I go. I got this I just know it. Thank you all for your kind words and being motivation along in this journey. Time to sleep. Night all!

Overcoming Obstacles and Turning Over a New Leaf

Monday, June 17, 2013

Wow, where do I start? I am not sure. I feel like I should be vlogging this but I don't know I thought I would just type it out instead so if it is long I am sorry I am try to keep it short. Bare with me.

I signed up with SparkPeople forever ago it seems. I got a lot of motivation and met some really great people. I had a hard time losing then because I was in a relationship that constantly had me stressed to the max. We had been together a long time and well we had two kids together. Everything I would lose and I was happy it was like he was there to cut me down. I wasn't pretty enough, I wasn't skinny enough, blah, blah, blah. He would say look she lost weight and a lot too bad you can't look like her. It would get to me every time because I would just give up and cave in. A lot happened and I ended up living back at home. He promised me it would only be a few months but I have been here almost 3 years. Well, He left during the first 6 months if my memory gets it right. We haven't been together since but he has continuously said stuff to bring me down. A few weeks ago, I was brightened by the life and decided that he no longer had any control over me. I am a great woman and never did anything to make him question me. It feels good not to have that leech on me anymore. Him and his words have no bearing in my life.

Loving me! I am still having a hard time doing so. I take it day by day. I come to realize that I have to forgive the past and move on. That is why I think I am so stuck at times because I haven't forgiven what time has done to me. I have let go of all the hurt and anger. I am doing this one persona dn one situation at a time and it going really good. I have learned to forgive myself. We all make mistakes. I have learned from them and I now know what to in those situations. I may forgive but I will never forget.

Love Life. haha! What is that? Well I thought I had something recently until it all came crashing down. Well, I am glad that I found out now instead of too much ahead. It was a crazy connection but we just weren't mean to be together. I have realized that I have to learn to love myself before I can love anyone else to be in a relationship. My heart has been broken but it hasn't been defeated.

You have to take one day at a time and realize hat every mistake is a lesson learned. I am on this journey for no one but me. I started going about this all the wrong ways and I think I finally got it right. It is going to be a great journey. I am inspired, motivated. I have a plan and I plan on seeing it through all the way to my goal. Thank you all for reading my blog, remember to enjoy life to the best you can because this is the only life you have. Love yourself because in this journey its important for you to love yourself so that you love the journey you are successful! I am learning to do that now and let me tell you it makes a difference in how you feel.

Keep up the good work you all doing! You CAN do this! If I can do this so can you! Let's keep each other motivated, no one needs to be hated on, on here! Hugs! emoticon emoticon emoticon
