It’s been a little while!
I’ve been so very busy! Life is hard and sometimes I have a tough time keeping up.
I’m steady between 161-163lbs and I’m ok at this weight. I haven’t been very active lately because of my schedule and I need to change that. Also, I’ve been feeling strange the past few weeks. Very tired, nausea and My period is also MIA…I’m pretty sure I’ve got a bun in the oven. I’m happy :) and so is the bf. Were going to the doctor Wednesday to confirm so I’ll keep you all posted!
We went down to Tennessee for thanksgiving and stayed through Saturday to visit with his family. I had a wonderful time, and I talk to his family online so much it felt like I already knew them. They made me feel so welcome and loved. We drove there so we had a lot of time to talk about the baby situation. Were both a little nervous, but confident in each other and think well be just fine :) were also going to give the marriage thing a shot. Not just for the baby, but because we love each other. I’m excited for this new chapter in my life.
Internet at home has been down for a little while so I can’t update from my laptop lol…and the tumblr mobile app kind of sucks and I don’t like using it! But I am still here and kickin’!!
I’ve never done one of these pants comparisons but I decided to take one today and was pretty proud of it! The blue pair are size 14 and the black ones are a 9 :) yippee!
I’m still hovering between 160-163lbs and I’m not sure why but it doesn’t really bother me that much because I’m kind of happy where I am :) I still want to reach my goal though so I’m going to switch up my workout routine next and see if that helps! Food has been about the same too but I don’t think I’ve been drinking enough water so I need to address that as well. Anyone have any advice on this? If so,message me!!!! Thanks!!

Would you say the elliptical is more effective or a treadmill?
I personally enjoy the elliptical more. I work up a better sweat and just feel like I’m getting a better workout. I tend to avoid the treadmill because I much rather enjoy walking/running/jogging outdoors on trails. Better scenery, much better than looking at somebody else’s backside! :)
I just wanted to tell you it looks like you did a great job dropping weight and you look incredibly sexy now :)
Thank you :)
Awesome blog!! And congrats on your weight loss!! 👏👏👏👏 I'm on my weight loss journey myself too I'm so lost I just run or elliptical
Thank you!!! And go YOU!!! Running and the elliptical are a great start! Try incorporating some weight/strength training as well
Hey! You're weightloss is amazing ! How long did it take you to lose all the weight ? I always have trouble figuring out what to eat when I'm trying to stay healthy, can you tell me your meal plan on a regular day ?
Hi there :) it has taken me a little over 6 months to lose these 37lbs. On a regular day my meals look something like this:
Breakfast sandwich containing
Whole grain English muffin
One egg, fried in olive oil cooking spray with salt and pepper, 3 slices avocado, super thin slice of pepper jack cheese
1/2 cup of fresh fruit of any kind
8oz water and a mug if coffee with one serving of half and half and sugar :)
Grilled chicken breast in a whole wheat pita with lettuce, tomato, onion and tzaziki sauce made from nonfat Greek yogurt.
1/2 cup cantaloupe and honeydew
1 Part skim string cheese
1 medium banana
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
I filet Baked salmon with lemon and garlic
1 cup steamed broccoli w/salt and pepper
2oz homemade baked sweet potato efries w
In between meals I drink lots of water and sometimes ill snack a little more depending on how I feel :)
Of course on days when I lift weights I always eat more food because because I need the fuel.
How many time did/do you slip.. do you ever feel like giving up
I can’t say I’ve slipped really…I don’t deprive myself of things I like, I have everything in moderation. But there have been times where I didn’t exercise as much as I wanted to, taking up to a week off from the gym. My eating habits didn’t change though, so I never gained any weight back during those times. In the past 6 months I only gained 1 pound back, and that was when I went on vacation to New Orleans ( for obvious reasons lol) but I lost it the following week when I got back into my routine :)
whats your jean size?
I am now a size 8-10 depending on the brand :) I like to lean more towards 8 lol
