Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
I finally broke though a mini plateau. I felt like I was stuck at 125-128 for months (it was only a month or so...LOL). I have weighed in at 123 for a few days so I can officially say that I have reached my end of November goal weight. There are only 5 weeks until New Years! I can't believe how fast this year pasted!
Goal by New Years: 119
I would love to reach around 119 by New Years and start the new year in my 110s. :)
No one said that life is easy; it has been tough! People seem to try to bring me down... But, I will remain positive and stand up for myself more often.
“Sometimes you have to forget how you feel & remember what you deserve.”
I deserve to be respected, be treated correctly, feel great about myself, and will not let anyone bring me down. Losing weight/ working out will also help me improve my confidence. I can do it!

The past 2-3 months have been crazy. I did reach 119.8 pounds before Easter... Unfortunately, I fasted for Easter and gained back up to 124. After Easter, my life was a bit crazy so I was focused on maintaining between 122-124.
I'm currently 123.6 this morning. As of today, I increased my cardio (6 times a week- 45-60 mins) and went back to doing strength training 3 times a week.
End of the month goals:
May: 120 pounds
June: 117-118 pounds
July and Aug- I will focus on staying between 117-119.
I'm taking a summer break from the gym, but I will be working out at home because the gym opens too late and is closed mid-day. So I will focused on working out early in the morning before going to the beach or hanging out with friends. I will make time to workout.
What are your summer goals?
Pounds to go: 8.6

Countdown to summer begins!! There are 15 more weeks until summer and I'm finally back to 122.2!
Since I started going to the gym, I have gained weight (been weighing in between 123-125 lbs for almost 2 months). I have been working out 4-5 times a week (at least 30-50 mins of cardio and strength trained, 3 times a week for 30-40 mins). I assumed it was temporary water weight from changing up my workout plan, increase in appetite, or a mixture of a few things.
After almost 2 months of going to the gym, I finally realized that I never calculated how many calories I should be eating to lose weight at my current weight; I have only been eating to maintain my weight. Since starting my weight loss, I haven't been tracking my caloric intake, but as I get closer and closer to my goal weight, tracking calories and eating clean are extremely important.
Yesterday was the first day that I began tracking my caloric intake and will continue to track my calories from now to June. I should be consuming anywhere between 1350- 1750 calories daily. I will also continue to zig zag my calories (eat more calories on my most active days and less calories on my less active days). I'm hoping this will help me lose these last 7-10 pounds.
My main focus this month is to finally get to 120!
Hope you all are doing well. Make the next 3 months to summer count!
