Day 1 of my weight loss journey 

So I’m beginning my journey for weight loss. 

And this time, I’m getting serious…😉

I’ve never lost weight before… and I never felt like I needed to. Until a few months ago when I looked in the mirror and realized how big and unhealthy I’ve gotten. 

I used to be a gym rat and loved focusing on my fitness and then for some reason, that slowly started to fade away. Why? Who knows…

All I know now is I’m on a journey to lose 40 pounds. I don’t care how long it takes. All I know is I’m needing to lose it. And I want to do it the right way. 

No pills, no shakes, no crazy diets or starvation plans. No magical drink or tea. 

I’m doing this the right way. 

[Right way: eating clean, exercising my butt off, and taking care of my spiritual and mental health as well. ]

Previously I’ve made attempts to meal prep, exercise, and lose weight. But I’ve never made a real effort. 

Why? Who knows! It still shocks me that I can’t get motivated to get fit when fitness used to consume my life. 

But today, I’m starting. No excuses or exceptions. I’m beginning this journey. 

I know the only way to succeed is to have some sort of accountability. Since I don’t have a workout partner and can’t afford a personal trainer, I figured that I can weekly document my journey: progress, success, and failures to all of you who read. 

I would post daily, but honestly, do you care about my day to day journey?… lol I know myself well enough to know I won’t post daily either, soooo no need for daily posts. 

Any who, I will post at the end of each week (prly Friday or Saturday) about my weight loss. 

I’ll talk about the following: 

  • What I meal prepped and ate that week. 
  • How many times I went to the gym and what workouts I completed 
  • How many pounds I lost 
  • How many inches I lost 
  • How I feel (physically and mentally) 
  • My downfalls: where I messed up or mistakes I made in my journey. 

I don’t want to be so consumed and obsessed with the number on the scale, so I’m still deciding if I really should weigh myself weekly, bi weekly, or monthly… who knows. 

I want to take care of myself and love myself by choosing a healthier lifestyle. I want to work, travel, hunt, and just live life to the best of my ability. I don’t want my weight or lack of confidence (because of how I look) to hold me back from anything. 

I’m going to be praying and seeking God through all of this because I know how challenging it will be. I know that my flesh will only focus on the exterior. I want my health to be the main concern. I want to be my best self that way nothing can stand in the way of me serving the Lord fully. 

So wish me luck and pray for me! ❤️  I’m not expecting perfection out of this journey. I know I’ll have downfalls and I know I will have my off days. I’m hoping for progression and a change in my attitude. I’m hoping and praying I become consistent again! 

Stay tuned for more!….

  2. Good luck on your journey! I’m starting my own journey of trying to get to the gym so this definitely sticks out to me. Meal prepping has been my one thing I enjoy doing — easily because I’m a taste tester (:

    1. Thanks so much Bebes! Let me know how y’all do with that and feel free to share your healthy recipes :))

  3. Good for you and Good luck! I started back on Jan 9th. My goal was to loose 20, and I hit it about a month ago, so I decided to go for another 10. I’m stuck at 26-27 but I just keep on going. I’m working out with group classes 3 times a week, so I know it will be harder to lose weight, with gaining all this muscle. It’s something to take into account when you don’t lose one week. It’s hard to see the scale stay still (i’ve had many weeks like that) but then I remember that my new pants (had to go a size smaller) are already getting baggy on me, and so I know I’m still doing great. I’m also on Nutrisystem. The biggest difference between people there is how often they way, which I know you mentioned. Some get discouraged if they don’t see the scale move, so they do it weekly or bi-weekly. I need the motivation day to day so I personally weigh myself every morning. Like I said though, if it doesn’t move, I don’t get upset because I know I am a lot healthier than I was on Jan 8th!

    Good luck!
