Chubby Girl Gets Skinny: Hello Lovely Week 7

WEIGHT-LOSS/HEALTHY LIFESTYLE JOURNEY

 

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 .

*Disclaimer* I want to state that my mood is not the best right now. I am one person who can feel the mood of something I read from someone, I hope that made sense. Basically, if you write a “happy” post, but your mood was sour and down while you wrote it, I can sense that in the writing. So If you are like me and can sense my mood, well I do apologize but I want to get this post out for my viewers following this.


STATS:

Heaviest weight: 230lbs                                Largest size: 18-20

Current weight: 215lbs                                  Current Size: 16-18

“Healthy range”: 104 to 135

Current BMI: 39.3


GOALS:

REFLECTION:

I lost weight and that makes me happy because my eyes are seeing a difference. I don’t know what to expect though. This happens a lot when I am on my weight loss journey. The week wasn’t that productive as far as working out, and I didn’t eat that well but I lost weight…It’s weird. But I’m not complaining.

Photos for the foodies!

Sorry, No photos.

Happy Days!

Chubby Girl Gets Skinny:Hello Lovely week 6

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 now in my mid 20’s…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!
