Getting fit; My struggles with it as I’m getting older (warning non flattering pics included).

When I was younger I was able to eat what I want and gain I weight. This was a time in which I wanted to gain weight. I was very skinny and hated it. I tried all the weight gaining hacks and none of it worked.

As I’ve gotten older I slowly started gaining weight and I loved it. Most of my eating habits remained the same and I put in weight slowly.

There came a point where I was gaining weight I didn’t want lol, in other words my metabolism slowed down. So I changed my eating habits and was able to lose the weight I didn’t want and maintain the weight I did.

I began eating healthy, not as a diet, but as a lifestyle. Dieting just didn’t work for me. I had to change my whole way of eating. So for years I was a very conscious eater. Don’t get me wrong I wasn’t only eating grass and bark but I didn’t overdo it when I did eat less health food.

Fast forward to me moving from New York to Georgia. My first 6 months living here I gained 20lbs!!! When I realized I was gaining weight and weighed myself I was shocked! I then made it a mission to lose the weight. I had a moment in which I loss 10 of the 20 lbs but gained it right back due to many things going on in my life.

Now I’m back at it. I need to lose these extra lbs. for me it’s not about a certain look. It’s about being healthy. I have a lot of medical issues that run in ny family and I need to take better care of myself. I’ve never been big on fried food but since living out here I’ve been living on wings.

What I am not going to do is deprive myself of things I enjoy. I am just going to make better choices when it comes to what I eat and when I eat it.

My latest journey begins now. 

This is my starting weight. My goal is not to necessary loose a bucket load of weight. I like when I’m 150-155 so that’s fine with me. I want to loose fat.

Here are some of my before body pics. My rolls, my pregnant looking belly… all that I will be working on.

I started my new journey (this is about my 5th one, lol don’t judge me) on Monday July 17th. I have since lost a couple of lbs, it’s a small about but progress is progress 

Here is my weight as of today:

  1. Losing weight gets harder as we get older. The main thing is to eat healthy and exercise. Drink plenty of water and eat veggies and fruit.

  2. Losing weight gets harder as we get older. The main thing is to eat healthy and exercise three or four times per week.

  3. Great post! Sharing your journey will help others. I too wanna start eating healthy even while I’m young to break the cycle of generational illnesses. You look great girlie!!!
