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!
