I just wanted to write an update since starting my new lifestyle journey back in March. It has definitely been a roller coaster ride with ups and downs and moments where I felt like nothing was happening. Literally NOTHING.
Two years and a handful of fad diets after having my daughter I found myself at rock bottom. I weighed more than when I was full term pregnant with her. I blamed my stress levels from selling, building and moving twice in one summer. I blamed my screwed up hormones from pregnancy. I blamed my husband for not putting pressure on me to be better with diet and exercise. I was in denial about how much I was eating and how little I was exercising. So I just ate whatever I wanted, slept when my baby slept and binge watched Gilmore Girls on Netflix.
A year earlier I watched my good friend Melanie release 50 pounds in 3 months and I felt too proud (and even more skeptical) about getting more info now. I didn’t want her to see how much I’d gained, how miserable I was and what I failure I’d become. I had NO excuses. I was a stay at home mom who was busy making baked goods, cleaning, shopping and basically convinced myself that I didn’t have time to take care of myself, hoping someone would do it for me. That was a total lie.
My first breakthrough came after I watched this vine of Lisa Nichols preaching “I am my rescue!” Something hit me and I am forever grateful to Lisa for her venerability, I picked up the phone and called Melanie “Where do I sign up?” I asked.
The rest of the story is currently being written. I’m still following my plan of drinking my 24g of undenatured, non-GMO, gluten free, protein shakes and working out at a boxing gym 5 days a week. There have been weeks where I lost, weeks where I gained, weeks and weeks in a row where NOTHING happened on the scale. Its been hard and I’ve wanted to give up, but I can’t! Mostly because of the motivational video by Shia LaBeouf, ha ha. Its odd but his video is totally where I’m at right now. My goal is to have a six-pack by October 2015. And I WILL have a sixpack by or before then!
Its totally NOT sexy, but consistency is the secret to success. And just like riding a real roller coaster, the only ones who get hurt are the ones who jump off. If you’re willing to hang on and stick with it, you’ll love seeing what happens to your body but also to your self worth and confidence. And you’ll be sitting next to me wanting to ride it again and again. Who wants to change their bad habits into good ones and get on this wild ride with me?

WOW You look fantastic. I have to lose 10 pounds and I just can’t. It is so hard because of my age, the medication I have to take, a recent surgery I had, etc. It is just so hard. Also the fact that I am not a picky eater doesn’t help. I love food. All kinds of food. There isn’t anything I don’t like. I don’t buy a lot of junk food so I don’t have it in the house to eat it but I can’t exercise like I probably need to do. I walk but I don’t think that’s enough for my “older” metabolism. I don’t know what to do. If I were you, I would be so proud of myself. Keep up the good work.
I am in the same place you were when you started your journey…. I am as heavy if not heavier than when I gave birth to my now 15 year old…. I never had any issues with my weight. I had lost two parents in a short time span and then had my husband lose his father…. we both just sort of ate out of comfort and bam! it was packed on in no time… seeing you now, gives me hope that I can find that little voice in me that tells me to get off the couch and get moving! You look great and should be so proud of yourself for all that you have accomplished!!!!
Keep it up! It is very inspiring!
Thank you so much my dear! I appreciate your kind words! And yes! You too can do it!
