CGGS: Hello Lovely! Week 8



I am changing the look of my weekly progress reports. To see why this started check out my Initial post and This post. To see some of my beautiful group of friends joined in on this health movement, check out Elisabeth and Japhet .
Well it has been 8 weeks so far and I’ve not lost weight. At least, not a significant amount. Does that make me want to stop? Yes. Does it break my confidence? Absolutely. Am I going to stop? Hell no. I refuse to give up on getting healthier. I know I can find a healthier lifestyle. As far as eating goes, I’ve pretty much giving up red meats and I don’t eat nearly as big of portions as I used to. It’s more of the working out and physical exercise that I need to work harder on and get a habit of.


Heaviest weight: 230lbs                                Largest size: 18-20

Current weight: 217lbs                                  Current Size: 16-18

“Healthy range”: 104 to 135

Current BMI: 39.3


Goal Weight: 135-148lbs

Goal size in clothing: 8-10, medium.

To live and enjoy life. I want to be healthy but not deny myself of tasty treats. I want to show my family and future children that being healthy is about being confident and doesn’t require you to be a size 0.


  • I didn’t record much of what I ate this week because of personal reasons. I do have a couple of pictures for you down below though! I do know that though my portions were pretty small, my meals and snacks were not the healthiest this week.


I gained weight again and this is the exact process I always go through. Again, it does irritate me very much and discourages me to keep working out but I’m not going give up on myself. It’s so hard but I can’t give up. I HAVE to do this for me. I am going to leave this quote that I think is perfect for this weeks review.

Pictured above are some my meals for this week. Fish Fry, Hot Link with bread(because we had no hot dog buns haha) and homemade fries, and then a turkey and provolone sandwich with chips and my moms homemade peanut butter protein bites.

  1. I gained weight again this week too! This really is a battle and journey for the rest of our lives!! We can do this girl! I know we can! Little improvements will become great improvements in the end! Your food looks so yummy!!

    1. Thank you hun! So I think I have developed a slight addiction to iced coffee lol I used to drink it all the type (and Frappes omg those were a drug for me) and I’m kinda getting back into the habit. It’s bad because I hate coffee plus I add lots of sugar! Ugh lol why does the tasty stuff have to be so bad??

      1. i love frappe!!! lately, because lack of sleep, that is my best friend.. remember ladies! we can do this. we still have the determination and each other for accountability and encouragement. we can do it!!!

  2. Hey, I just found your blog and read through all the cggs ones. You can do it! I was particularly impressed by you listing all the food you’d eaten, even if it wasn’t so healthy and slimming.

    Looking forward to reading your next post where I hope you’ll be feeling in a better place and have treated yourself to some really yummy healthy food.

    We are a very similar height and wrought, and I’ve battled to lose this weight for such a long time also. Good luck!

    1. Aww, thank you so much!!! Your words mean a lot to me. I have been making much healthier choices now that the holiday is over. I am also getting back to working out. My goal is to lose and keep at least 5 pounds off this month! Thank you for your encouragement!

  3. Maybe your losing fat and gaining muscle!! You may not see changes on the surface yet, but deep down you are getting healthier. Keep up the good work!
