My Weight Loss Journey

I started the transformation to a new me. It started as a weight loss journey but shortly after starting, I realized that it's not a weight loss journey; its a lifestyle change! I welcomed these changes with portion control, staying under my calorie intake and also making the gym part of my daily routine.

Side note: I have NEVER been one to go to the gym!

I made it my goal everyday to really watch when I put into my body. I don't want to be the skinniest girl in the world. I want to be healthy. I want to feel good in and out of my clothes. I also make it a point to log into My Fitness Pal (MFP) to track my food everyday. It makes me accountable for what I'm putting into my body and how many calories I have to go so I can make healthy choices during the day.

This journey will not always be easy, as I have come to find out, but as long as I keep telling myself that this journey is a lifestyle change and its a slow and steady one, I think KNOW I can do it!

With that said, because today was a very exciting weigh in! I am officially 13lbs down!!


  1. Congrats on hitting your goal!

    1. Not official goal yet...37 more lbs to go! But I am so happy with the way things are going!

  2. Feels great doesn't it? Although I have a reward system too, I don't think anything is more rewarding than seeing that number on the scale go down. Keep up the good work!

    1. The number getting lower and to be able to see it in the progression pic are the best reward out there! Thank you!
