My workouts this past week wasn’t as intense. Because I worked double shifts all week but getting to the gym was a must! I wasn’t feeling it initially but my work out partner was the extra push I needed. I weighed in…another 3lbs down! Yay! That’s 7 lbs in two weeks. #slowprogress is still progress. #weightloss #journey #bbw #transformation #thestruggleisreal

Happy Tuesday to you all. I can’t promise that I’ll blog daily but I certainly will try. A recap of my weekend: It was girls weekend with my good friends. And let me just say, #thestrugglewasreal. Dieting and exercising on vacation is hard…but manageable. For starters, I did some hardcore twerking every chance I got, used stairs instead of elevators (except at the hotel), and took the long route as opposed to short cuts. The restaurants we ate at had awesome selections for calorie/diet conscious people (Ruby Tuesday, Pobalano’s Mexican Grill, Mimi’s Café)….

My workout yesterday was a bit harder to get through, but it was done. Check out the video I posted. After zumba, I did some exercises that my trainer taught us. Needless to say my legs are sore as well as the back of my shoulders but pain=strength.

My weight loss victory is that I’m fitting into clothes that ive either never worn or I haven’t worn in years. Hard work is paying off and Im seeing it little by little. Keep pushing.

Much love

Here I Am…This Is Me.

To avoid clouding my social media timelines with weekly pictures and daily statuses dedicated to my weight loss journey, I decided to blog it instead. To be honest….I am absolutely terrified. I am stripping down to the absolute raw truth, completely vulnerable to the pricks of the internet. Bring. It. On. I’m ready for you.  I hope you enjoy being on this journey with me.

Why get in shape now?

Because I’m fat. No seriously, I. Am. Fat. (and gorgeous of course) but this is long overdue lifestyle change. It was easy to make excuses as to why I couldn’t work out….my personal favorite was "I’m to fat to exercise." Completely asinine, right? I absolutely wanted to pimp slap my toothpick stick figured friends who complained about how out of shape they were or who had the audacity to ask me "Do I look fat in this? I need a Spanx, don’t I?" It was always the twigs who invited me to the gym…no thanks! It was embarrassing. I was embarrassed.

I embraced my chunkiness because regardless what size you are, darling you are a force to be reckoned with! But I want to be healthy. Being big has its limitations….and I don’t want to be bound by them anymore.

I hope this vulnerable and transparent blog will encourage and inspire someone to get on the path to a healthier life.

With Love
