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!
Heaviest weight: 230lbs Largest size: 18-20
Current weight: 213lbs 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 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.
