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!
