In Not Losing Weight I’m Getting Rid Of It

photofor blog

I have been battling with my weight since I can remember. I was 20 when I got a hold of it for the 1st time. I went from 268 to 175. I pretty much maintained my weight up in till I had my 1st baby. After the birth of her I was right back where I started 260. I did lose some of the baby weight over time. I got down to 202.6 and stayed around that for years but I stayed over 200lbs.

Now fast forward to July 17, 2012. I just had my son and was looking down at my hips[which I haven’t seen in months] couldn’t help but to think ‘How Long Is This Going To Take To Get Off”

Right away I wanted to start on the weight lose, because I had to face it, I’m not 21 anymore. I was going to need a lot more effort now that I’m older. As well as it was going to take a lot of Dedication, Determination and Discipline then it did before. Even though I wanted to lose weight I wasn’t motivated to do it. You know if the motivation isn’t there it’s not going to happen. A month or so after having the baby and I took a picture. This wasn’t your normal picture it was the picture that SPARKED THE MOVMENT!! this picture made me say out loud “I’M DONE, NO MORE, NEVER AGAIN, I CANT DO THIS ANYMORE”

From that day on I was Motivated. I had the 3D’s Dedication, Determination and Discipline. I started a clean eating regiment as well as green smoothies and exercised 4 days a week. I have to say I’m proud of myself for sticking to this new life style. As you can see in the pictures below I wasn’t play….

The 1st picture was the 1 that motivated this journey. Well it’s not just a journey its a Life Style! The picture in the black is me now. In case you guys was wondering, Yes I’m under 200!!

I’m Back


Okay, Okay so I’ve been on a little Hiatus.

2012 was such a busy year for me. I had a big promotion at work which took up a big part of my life. My parents moved to the west coast which means my babysitter is gone. On top of that I was pregnant for 42 weeks. Yes I am now a mother of 2. Which I still can’t believe. Our Daughter was 5 when I found out God was going to bless us with another one. Mister and I both was happy to be expecting, but wasn’t looking forward to what came along with a new born. We just started to enjoy our SLEEP!! If you are a parent you know what I’m talking about. We are in our 30’s now so we are old if you ask us. Forget that “YOUR AS OLD AS YOU FEEL” kids  suck up your youth at any age you are.

On July 17, 2012 at 8:24am, after 14 blissful [more like exhausting and painful] long hours of labor out came Nicholas Zaiden aka Mister Jr! It was such a wonderful moment for me. I had tears of joy for 2 reasons. The 1st being we just had a healthy baby Boy and 2nd I was FREE. I wanted to shout FREE AT LAST, FREE AT LAST!  I was so happy I wasn’t pregnant anymore. I was even more ecstatic because he was Mister and I last baby.  We are done. I don’t have to do this again[I’m getting watery eyed now]. Two was are magic number. We have are Girl and Boy. The shop is CLOSED, GONE OUT OF BUSINESS!!!

I can finally get my body in shape. I’ve been dreaming about this day ever since I started gaining weight. I’m past 30 so it will be a lot harder to get a video VIXENS body [lbvs], but I’m determined and committed to my goal. I started my weight loss journey on July 18th the day after NJ was born. I’ve set my half way goal date for March 10, 2013. Which is my birthday.

I’ve told Mister of my goal to have a video VIXENS body and of course he just looked at me smiled and said Okay Baby. Translation “Yeah Sure, Okay, What Ever You say. You will lose some weight but not enough to have a video VIXENS body” I know that’s what he meant when he said Okay Baby.

So far I’ve lose 64lbs. Which a lot of that was the baby weight. I have a long way to go. I just have to keep reminding myself ONE POUND AT A TIME.

So at this time let me close out this post by asking if you could bow your head and say a pray for me. Asking God to give me strength on my long weight loss journey[lol]…
