The Diet Diaries: A Change is Gonna Come

July 1, 2014
There is so much I want to share with you guys!  I’m down 5 pounds *does the MC Hammer* and then the *cabbage patch*.  I can’t believe it! I’m so happy I stuck with it after being in a dark place (here) two weeks ago.  I guess I just had to make it over that hump.  Losing weight is so not easy!  I’m over here crying about losing 20 pounds when some folks goal is to lose 100 pounds or more.  At the end of the day, it’s not easy to lose 5 pounds or a hundred.  We can all do it if we make up our minds to  Just Do It.  Today I’m showing you what my progress looks like after three weeks of eating right and working out. Nothing major but these pics motivate me to keep going.

I can’t believe in just three weeks one of my rolls are disappearing!  Since having Peyton (4 years ago) I know my body needs to work out. My stomach just doesn’t stay in like it used too.  I’m sure being over 35 doesn’t help much either.  I noticed my legs are getting thinner and a waist is starting to show.

I’m happy with my changes in just 3 weeks.  I think cutting back on the carbs helped a lot this past week.  I’ve been working out 4 times a week.  I really enjoy working out.  The hard part was finding the time to do it.  I follow June Ambrous on IG.  Every morning when I open my app, I would see that June already got her workout on.  I figured I needed to start getting up early and get my workout done while everyone else was sleeping.  Besides not being able to stay up past 10pm, so far it’s been working out.  How do you fit in your workouts?

I also wanted to share great resources for dieting and weight loss that have been helping me out along the way.  My girl Dee Dee from Miss Foodie Fab has a great post on Weight Watchers tips HERE.  Check out Black Girls Guide to Weight Loss!  Ericka’s BGG2WL is so inspiring and her body is sick! I’ve seen it in person.  Check out BGG2WL HERE.  My online buddy, Teema started Operation Snap Back and is hosting a 30 Day running challenge.  Not sure if it’s too late to start the challenge but you can follow along with #OfficialOSB and @OfficialOSB on Instagram.  If you have any tips or achievements please leave a comment below or feel free to email me  We can do this!
