    So, I am so hype because I finally stepped on the scale after 3 weeks and I am please to announce that I have maintained my 30lbs weight loss!!! I am so happy! I

    I was so scared because I just thought I would get on there and cry. That has motivated me to continue to try my hardest! I will continue to go to the gym 4 times a week and eat better.

    The reason I started on my healthy journey because I used to be in shape and I had a better figure.I knew I always wanted to get back to where I was before. 

    When I got engaged, I had so much anxiety about trying a dress on when I was not the weight I knew I wanted to be. So I went hard core and cut out some things in my diet that I do not even miss now. I go dress shopping next month and I am still a little scared that I will continue to see myself how I was, I hope I will get over that fear and find the dress of my dreams!

    Djscat 2lbs IS a big deal! Congrats!

    Great job BluIvory! Your doing such a good job.

    I am soooo hype i lost 5.2lbs las week!!!!!!!! Ahhhhh!! I needed that. I know its not the conventional way of doing things, but i had to kick my butt in gear.
    For the whole of last week, i didnt eat ANY carbs, and NO sugar. I survived on proteins and veggies. It was hard, but not as hard as i thought. I went back to running 4-5miles which i preffer 1000000x more than any other cardio exercise. I also did my zumba on monday and weds.

    I gave myself a lil bit of a break on the weekend, and i'm gonna do the same thing again this week.

    My inspiration for my journey is to be healthy! I would be lying if i said it didnt have anything to do with the wedding - coz it does. I really want to be comfortable in my skin and especially with the pictures!

    Oohhh, congrats ladies!  I don't really check the scale - I check how my clothes fit, and they're starting to hang better lol.  FI said he noticed my obliques, so I'll take that as a positive!

    Hey ladies! Once again I ddin't do as much as I wanted, but this weekend I'll be visiting FI and getting to try out the Insanity workout. FI and I agreed before we were engaged that we wanted to stay healthy and workout together and make it a family thing. So that's my motivation along with trying to prevent hypertension and diabetes.

     When I bought my dress Saturday I was very pleased with how the dress flattered my body. I actually have a tooty booty for once.lol Tongue out So I plan on working more on squats. I also want to work on toning my arms and shoulders and get my Michelle Obama on as my mother says. Unfortunately, I don't have as much chest as I thought I did ...so any tips on how I can make that grow by January..lol!  
     
    Yay to everyone working toward their goals! Stay encouraged! :)

    Ok the bad news is according to weight Watchers I gained 1.4lbs this week... SAD FACE!!! Frown 

    The good news my jeans are two sizes smaller!!! HAPPY FACELaughing

    I went to buy new jeans on Thursday and I tried on my "usual" size ( we ain't that close yet yall- Maybe I will share it once my journey is over) and they were too big! Then I went down one size and I said wait let me see if I could go again and I did.. and then are still a little loose but CUTE!!! I didn't care how much those pants were I was BUYING THEM! LOl

     The Weigh Watchers lady told me to up my water and watch my fruit in take, I have been eating fruit like crazy but she reminded me it turns into sugar so I gotta watch it. i have a huge bowl of grapes and after they are gone I will cut back.

    Ohh I did walk up this INSANE hill on Wednesday and then on Friday and Sunday Fi and I rented bakes and rode them along the beach for 5 miles.  I am happy to say my exercise has increased and I am happy about that!

    Let's keep it up ladies!
