Weight- Loss Update

Well, since my last post my WLJ (weight-loss journey ) has been gong very well. I have to keep reminding my self it is a lifestyle and not a race to some finish line. I am Down 32 pounds with a lot more to go, but I'm well on my way. It does feel good to  have more energy, look better and fit better into clothing. I have my ups downs and all around but hello that what life is all about. I am more accountable for my behaviors .

I have been wanting to loose weight for a long time now; I just never did anything about it and found every excuse in the book to not pursue it. I really had to deal with matters of the heart and soul before I attempted to start working on the outer part of my self . It really is about working on "Self" if you ignore that part your  in for a disaster. What I mean is you will still look at your self based on how you feel about your self or how you have felt . After the soul searching I needed to find a plain that worked for me. I did not want to feel restricted and I did not want to be on some fad diet.

Starting my journey I researched plains and found WW( Weight Watchers) I studied their system read story's did tons of research .  I began WW January of this year and set small goals for the first 30 days on the plain I  just studied my eating patterns this allowed me to make small changes . Biggest change was to cut out my late night refrigerator eating.  Instead of making a sandwhich at 11 at night I would have a piece of fruit eventually I cut out the fruit and now do not dare to late night snack . I have a snack after dinner before bed but don't wake up anymore and help myself to whatever my heart desire.

I drink tons and I mean tons of water. I hated drinking water before but, to get myself use to consuming large quantity of water a day. My go to product is awesome water enhancers  like crystal light, mio . This makes water drinking easier. I meal prep and do not deprive myself of treats I am a choclate lover and I do like to enjoy a cupcake now and then. Thanks to weekly points that make that happen.  I also have 1 and I mean 1 cheat meal not a cheat day just a meal ..

And for the working out part at this point in my journey I do 3 times a week for 30 minutes.  I have been increasing my gym time by 10 minutes usually my routine is now  20 minutes of the treadmill and about 20 minutes on the bike ...

 I will keep updating as I continue to move Along on  my journey !
Thank you for finding and reading my post. If you are thinking about shedding some weight  I encourage you to do it ! I also encourage you  to stop giving yourself all the reasons why you cant and start thinking of all the reason why you CAN!
