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.
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.
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:
