Hello! I apologize for not posting last week’s weigh in. I took a few days off from work and it was amazing! I had a me day that started with Starbucks, shopping at the outlets, a pedicure, and sushi! Thank goodness I did take this time off because the end of the week was the total opposite as I was out expectantly due to a family emergency. Anywho, I’m back and ready to share my weight loss progress with you. I’ll let this screenshot from my Weight Watchers tracker speak for me . . .

Weekly Weigh In 9.12.14

I’m down almost 20 lbs since the end of April when I finally came face to face with the scale for the first time in months. 20 lbs in 4 months is pretty slow . . . BUT, it’s a steady progression. I literally eat almost anything I want, in moderation. I don’t feel deprived. I don’t feel miserable. I don’t feel like I’m starving. I have my cake and eat it too! When I tell you I LOVE Weight Watchers, I mean it! They do not sponsor me or even know I exist . . . but maybe they should lol.

It is THE best program for me. Yes, I see people that go on these crazy restriction diets and lose 20 lbs in a month. That’s great but for me, it’s not realistic and it’s not long lasting. I can and will do Weight Watchers for the rest of my life.

Enjoy the Journey

I feel like I’m finally coming out of a fog and getting back to myself slowly but surely. I’ve been learning to accept that life is all about taking the good times with the bad times. I’ve always been an all or nothing person and when things are going bad, I would let everything go to shit including my eating and my weight. I now realize that I can’t control outside situations or fix a family member that is ill. The ONLY thing I can do to maintain my sanity in the midst of chaos is control MY actions with food and how I take care of myself.

I Love Fashion!

Let’s be real, everyone says they want to lose weight for health reasons and I totally feel the same way . . .BUT, fashion is a close second! I LOVE it. I recently bought 2 dresses from Fashion to Figure for the first time and I’m in love! They are perfect for my body and totally my style. I’ve never been a fan of plus size stores for various reasons. It’s also the reason I say in my intro that “I’m stuck between a rock hard body and a fat place.” A lot of straight sizes don’t fit me right and plus sizes are sometimes too big for my body but fit only in certain places. Ugh, the struggle is real yall!!!!! This is why I’ve secretly always wanted to design my own line of clothes.

I do have to say that these dresses are cut perfectly for a curvy figure and the quality is great.   I’ll do a post soon if you’re interested in seeing the dresses on me. In the meantime, here’s the pics from the website.
