A journey to a better me.

First I want to start by saying how sorry I am for not blogging in a very long time…

Second, I’ve decided to start a journal for my weight loss journey…so here we go.

Okay, so recently I’ve decided to become healthier. I started my journey about 5 weeks ago which for the first time it’s been pretty easy for the most part. I’m not saying its the easiest thingĀ  to do. I’ve had my hard days, but so far it hasn’t been that hard.

Not only am I working out more and eating healthier I’ve also been doing slim fast. Now I know a lot of people don’t agree with diets or products such as slim fast etc… But it’s helped me a lot. With that being said, no I’m not going to stay with it. Once I get to my middle goal weight, I’m going to stop. I’m also calorie counting so once I stop I’ll still be staying with in my calories.

When I go out to eat 90 percent of the time I pick the healthier choices, but sometimes yes I cheat. Which it seems like to me it helps me when I’m stuck and can’t seem to lose anything. Even my snacks are mostly vegetables. It’s hard when I see someone eating something I like, but I know its not good for me. But it’s been easier this time. My cravings are still there, but not to bad. I can usually fight it by drinking water.

When I go to the gym before it was hard for me to stay motivated, this time around I look forward to getting up and going. When I’m there I usually watch dance videos haha (mostly Rumer Noel and The Williams Fam) or I watch Netflix. It makes the time go by way faster then just listening to music, even though I usually have up beat and dance music when I do listen to it. Which is why I’ve set one of my goals as when I get down to a size 14 I’m going to take Hip Hop dance classes. I’ve always wanted to do dance, but recently I can’t seem to stop watching Hip Hop. Which helps a lot to not concentrate on how tired I am which working out when I’m watching the videos.

Setting goals is one of the ways I’m staying motivated. I’ve made a few small goals with rewards.

Goals:

  1. Size 14 take hip hop dance classes.
  2. Size 12 get the industrial piercing I’ve always wanted (but been scared to get)
  3. Size 10 get laser hair removal done to my legs.
  4. Size 8 get a tattoo (which I’ve wanted to do for a while, but also scared to get)

I know its going to be a long journey, but it will be worth it. there will be ups and downs, but I’m determined to become a healthier and better me. I hope you all will follow me on my journey. I want to become a part of a community, so we can support and help each other to reach our goals.

Day 1: Becoming healthy

Has anyone else struggled with their weight? I know I have. I’ve always struggled with my weight since I was little. No matter what diet I tried it never worked. I would lose a lot, then I gained twice as much…

Well I’ve decided to change my health and the way I try to lose weight. I’ve tried diets, pills, just eating salads, ect. This time around I’m going to just eat healthier, drink a lot of water, and work out. I’m going to watch what I put in my body, and how much. I’m also going to try to blog as much as I can with updates (like a journal) I’ve heard a lot of people say how writing down their progress and keeping a vlog or blog helped them stay determined.

Today I’m starting my weight loss journey (again). Even if I don’t lose a lot of weight, at least I know I’ll become way more healthier. I’m so tired of fighting with myself and how I look. I always act like I’m fine, when really I feel nervous when I have to do certain things or feel fat and ugly when I can’t wear something that I use to love.

I went through a health issue that I’ve been debating on talking about in my blog, but because of it I went through a long period where I couldn’t lose weight and when I did lose weight it made me look as if I was pregnant. Which all through high school I looked eight months pregnant. And less then two years ago I ended up in the hospital. I lose Thirty-three pounds in ten days after I had to have an emergency surgery. I thought I would be fine after, and hoped to lose a lot of weight. Instead I gained it all back. So now I’m going to be dedicated to making myself healthier.

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, and with both parents having health issues with diabetes. And my health issue I’ve had in the past. I don’t want to end up like my parents, at least not by choice. If I can help myself I am. I know most people want to lose just because they want to look sexy and skinny. I just want to be healthy, and make better choices.

If you have any suggestions of what I should do, or what tell me what has worked for you please feel free to comment.
