Fit Girls lifestyle Program & Progress update #CGGS

Hello! I am updating my posting days, if you haven’t noticed last week. My previous post days were Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. I have a new site I am working on and since I have re-branded the new site, I am also updating my posting days now to get my readers accustomed to the new post days. My new post days will be Monday, Wednesday, and Friday!

Now getting into this weeks CGGS update, I have joined Fit Girls! If you don’t know what Fit Girls is, it is a lifestyle weight loss program. I have been following this program for a while now and I finally decided to take the plunge when they dropped their prices by half, on black Friday!

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.


WEEKLY REVIEW: 

I wouldn’t say I had a bad week, I enjoyed this past week! I went to the doctors office for a checkup and found out I am back at 220lbs. I’m confused on this but I’m not letting it get me down because I know for a fact that I am slimming down. I don’t know if it’s muscle or water weight that has brought me back up (or if I’m finally just gaining weight in the right areas) but I refuse to let it get me down. Even my brother notices that I am slimming down so it’s definitely noticeable.

I worked out I think only twice last week. I was busy a lot so I didn’t really get in real workouts. I was active though!

 


REFLECTION:

I’m going to keep going. That’s all I can do. It’s working slowly but surely. I am trying not to focus so much on the amount of weight I want to lose, but rather focus on just slimming down and becoming healthier. It’s still a journey and still the beginning but I will get there!

CGGS Is Back In Session

Hello and welcome back to Chubby Girl Gets Skinny!

I know, it’s been forever since I have posted a CGGS update and I apologize for that. The reason is, though, I honestly haven’t been working out and eating correctly so I haven’t had anything to really give updates on, therefore I didn’t give you guys updates.

If you didn’t know, we have been out of an oven for two months now  (it’s a very long story) and we just got a new oven this past Friday. Now I can cook healthy meals again, not eat so much processed/frozen foods and I can bake food instead of using oil and butter for a skillet. Things are looking up!

Chubby Girl Gets Skinny: Hello Lovely! week 4

WEIGHT-LOSS/HEALTHY LIFESTYLE JOURNEY

Hello Dolls and Kens! Today I wanted to speak and introduce a personal part of my life with you. I have been speaking with Elisabeth at Everything & Nothing about her wonderful weight loss posts and she inspired me to make and share my own! She has been so sweet and accepted my request to join her and collaborate with her on this journey! Make sure you check her posts out, she’s very inspiring!

To give you some background, I went through an awful experience at the age of 6 and began to eat my fears and stress away. I have been a big girl since then. I have tried many times to workout and eat right but it never went through. My heaviest weight was 230lbs. I am only 5’2 so that is obesity for me. I was devastated hearing that word, I was 15 when I heard it from the doctor and I vowed to get healthier. Well, I haven’t stopped my journey, but I havent had much difference either. I will admit that I have lost some weight. I am currently at 215lbs, which is good, but I am 24 years old…it shouldn’t have taken me this long to lose that little amount of weight. I am working out daily, starting small as I have an irregular heartbeat (so I can’t put too much stress on my heart).

I will be posting a weekly summary every Sunday of how I did during the week!


STATS:

Heaviest weight: 230lbs                                Largest size: 18-20

Current weight: 213lbs                                  Current Size: 16-18

“Healthy range”: 104 to 135

Current BMI: 39.3


GOALS:

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.

REFLECTION:

I have lost another two pounds!!!! I am so excited and ready to keep going. I do believe, that I will lose another 2 pounds each week if I continue my journey with determination. In the last four weeks I started at 215lbs, I gained 4 pounds, reaching 219lbs in between week one and two, and now I am down to 213lbs! So I have lost a total of 6 pounds in four weeks!!! That doesn’t seem  like much but for me, it’s a huge deal. It was consistent, I stayed strong and honest with myself. I am closer to my weight goal. I feel so good! I’m not sure how week 5 will turn out because I am getting my wisdom tooth pulled so I won’t be eating much, but that also means I won’t be doing any exercise. We shall see how week 5 turns out.

  • Saturday:
    • Lots of walking around LA, but no other exercise to record. Snacked on almonds all day then had Taco Bell for dinner.

Reflection:

This week was hectic. I had a lot to get done (which I did accomplish, yay!) and I was dealing with my business work. My family and I traveled to LA for The Voice Auditions and the trip was…..an experience. I am going to write all about my trip and post it this week! My choices of food weren’t the best this week but I had small portions of everything and I still managed to get walking in every day which reflects in my weight! In my last CGGS post, I was 217,  I am happy to announce that I am back at my starting weight of 215lbs! I was shocked to find that I had still lost weight. I expected to not have lost anything but two pounds make me happy! This is still a huge process and I will have my ups and downs but I am happy to be seeing constant progress within myself and on the scale!
