Taking The Next Step💪🏾


First things first Happy October!! I love the month of October the fall leaves start to change different colors. With the leaves changing I want to change as well. I want to change my body.

This year I wanted to take control of my weight. I am one of those people who carries there weight well (to me weight its weight). Currently I am 170 and for my 5’1 frame I am considered obese. When I stare at myself in the mirror I don’t see beautiful. I don’t see a person I am comfortable with. This whole year has been about change from the inside out. I am the type of person who looses weight pretty quickly but also gains it as well. It’s a cycle I go through, I gain and loose. Now as the colder months hit and I am taking out my winter clothes none of them FIT. I am wearing black leggings to work almost every day because my dress slacks don’t fit. My blouses don’t fit. LITERALLY NOTHING FITS. 

Today I said enough is enough. I want to live a healthy livestyle. I want to feel comfortable and beautiful in my clothes and not worry about my bra rolls OR tummy rolls. Today I finally admitted I needed some outside help. So with the help of my best friend I joined drum roll please (does the universal sign for drum roll) Weight Watchers.

I know you guys are probably thinking its Weight Watchers not a big deal but to me that’s a huge freaking deal. I’m the type of person that’s does everything on my own. I dont like to depend on people at all. It comes naturally that losing weight should be done on my own. So signing up for Weight Watchers means I will be going to the meetings once a week and getting weighed in. I, being me wanted to take it one step further with Weight Watchers I am giving  myself week by week goals. Starting Monday its workout for 30 Mins a day with Cassie Ho (blogilates) and then the next week eat more vegetables and so on. I read somewhere if you give yourself short obtainable goals they are easier to reach.

So for the month of October I am planning on loosing weight. I want to truly begin living an lifestyle that is healthy. I don’t know how I am going to write about it. I know some days will be hard and the other days will be easier. I am happy to finally take this step towards being healthy and comfortable in my own skin.

Soon to be Fit and Fabulous

I don’t want people to take this the wrong way about what I wrote. Some people feel like you should learn to love your body the way it is. But I feel like if you can change something about yourself than you should. I don’t want people to think that I am talking about plastic surgery. I am talking about hard work and determination of knowing what my body needs and making the best changes a I can.

  1. Oh I love this! I’ve been struggling with my weight for about a year now and it’s been crazy. I never had weight issues but then BOOM none of my clothes fit. I’m also around 170 or possibly more…who knows, and being 5’3 this is too much. So, I will definitely be joining you on this weight loss journey. It’s great you’re taking control and deciding to be comfortable in your skin. Good luck and keep us posted!

    1. Thank you so much! I have been on so many fad diets but its time for me to loose weight and be comfortable in my skin. One thing I have learned is you have to believe in yourself and really want the change. I had to look in the mirror and say NO MORE. You can do this it just takes time and dedication. Thanks again.

      2. I’m glad I could help! I’d love to see the vlog whenever you do it, and I think that sometimes people needs to see someone else doing what they should be.
