First week completed :)

I completed my first week, and I am very proud of myself! I have been improving myself each day {mind, body & spirit} and I am so happy that I made the decision to change. I weighed myself this morning, and my weight has stayed the same for three days, but I am not discouraged at all. Yesterday was my best day yet in terms of healthy choices plus exercise. I think that because I lost weight so rapidly the first few days, my body is now like—whoa—what’s going on?! LOL I know that I will see a loss very soon, and I am excited for it.

My clothes are already getting looser, and J sees a difference. She said she can’t wait until she sees me wearing my cute clothes and heels again like I used to. My mini goal is to get back into my size 14 jeans that are waiting for me, I think I can by this May! I am hunkering down this winter and working hard so I will feel much better about myself this spring.

Although I am very chipper and happy, make no mistake, it hasn’t been always easy this week. I went through a few rough days at work, so it was almost a battle with myself at some point to keep on my game. That’s where hot cups of herbal tea came into play. When I was hungry and craving something at night, I made some chamomile or cinnamon apple tea, and I felt much better. I just don’t want to give the wrong impression about my journey, it hasn’t been without some sort of internal struggle. But I am even happier BECAUSE I pushed through it. That makes me even more positive, because I know I CAN do it.

  1. I am so happy for you! 21 days until things become a habit, so only 2 more weeks and I'm sure it'll start to get much easier!

    Congrats on your weight loss so far! Just a word of caution, weighing everyday can get really discouraging sometimes. Most people don't lose much, if any, everyday. There isn't anything wrong with weighing everyday, but if you start getting upset by not losing, I'd try once a week. Think of those big numbers at the end of the week instead of small ones everyday. However, if you are more motivated by daily loss, than that's great too!

    You're doing great, keep going and you can reach your goal! :)
