Weight Loss-February

Well, I am going to be a little more realistic with my weight loss blogging! I am going to MAKE sure to blog monthly...if I get more than great, if not I am okay with it!!
But, I have lost ten pounds!!! That is a whole big bag of potatoes, y'all! I am pretty excited. That was my goal, ten  pounds a month and I did it! Yay! I have also lost 18 inches!! That my friends is exciting, too!! I am very proud of myself and PLAN to keep up the hard work!


1. Have self motivation! You have to want this on your own. While accountability is great for me, I have to want to change and can sneak anything at any time! I am motivated and want to get to my goal weight and stay there!
2. PLAN- It is key for me to plan my meals throughout the day. I must know what I am eating for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Don't leave your health or meals to chance. If you have a plan you're more than likely going to stick to it. This will leave less of a chance for you to eat something bad for you!
3. Water, Water, and more water-I have a water bottle with me somewhere, almost all of the time! The more I drink water, the less I drink cokes. It is a win-win for me!
4. Exercise-This is what I need to work on the most. I am getting 3-4 days in on the elliptical. But, the more calories you burn the less that are staying on your body!

I am still a work in progress but closer than I was before! 50 pounds to go!!

Weight Loss

This is something I don't want to write about, but know I need to. I am scared and know people judge me for how I look. I have always struggled with my weight. Let me stop and say now, I am not one of those people that thinks I am so ugly and everyone looks at me as a fatso. I have confidence. My weight has been something I just try to look past. But I know from family history, I need to get it under control. So, starting Monday my sister and I are going to begin a weight loss journey together. My goal is to lose around 60 pounds by the time school starts in August. Do you want to see my picture for motivation?
Here it is! This was my Freshman year of college!!
I was a little small here. In fact, this is the smallest I have ever been.  I had just done a little crash dieting for a friends dress was ordered a couple of sizes too small. So, motivation and inspiration comes from this right here! I plan to blog about my journey. We will begin Let's Lose program in Greenwood. I want to let people know what I am eating, how I am exercising, and what I am doing to succeed! Please help to encourage and keep me accountable in anyway possible.  READY, SET, WEIGHT LOSS HERE I COME!!!

The past 6 months...

Wow....I promise I want to be better at blogging. It just hasn't been a priority for me! What have been my priorities lately? Well, I have focused on being an awesome aunt to two amazing nephews. It has been so fun to watch Roman, aka Romo grow. I have been blessed to watch my sister become a mother, too. Also, playing with Peyton and watching his mind get smarter and smarter has been exciting for this teacher. Speaking of teaching, I have a great class this year. I love my kids and this year has been fun. Then, I have spent time with my life group girls. The sad news is we only have 6 months left with time....I guess time flies when you are having fun! So, for now I will leave you with some pictures of the fast few months! Love you all.

Can you tell I love pictures! These are just a few! I plan on blogging more soon...some exciting stuff, too! :)
