My Weight Loss Progress

So should this post be called I LIED...again???

It's been a long year.....had some glorious mornings and some demoralizing moments but, all in all life is still great. Now to the weight loss….I had an awesome beginning of the year lost 30 lbs!!! Then….I gained 10 back. But, I love that when I see people I haven’t seen in a while they ask me have I lost weight!!! That’s an awesome feeling.

I’ve been walking around feeling like I’ve seen no change and then pop into a classmate from 3 months ago who stops me and asks, “Hey, have you lost weight?” Literally, tears almost fell from my eyes. It’s so nice to have reassurances.

But, despite the praise from others…I’m far from where I need to be. I have a really good week and a really bad week that negates the whole week before. Why does food have to be so tempting….so good???? Everything that taste divine is filled with fat, salt, and sugar!!! It’s truly bewildering to me that the foods that taste the best, are the worst for you.

I’m not into strict diets. But, by refusing to have no off limit foods….I find myself consuming 20 mini Snickers instead of one. I truly may have an addiction to food. It may sound weird to people that know me because I’m not the size most associate with food addiction but, I truly have NO self-control/ will power when it comes to eating food. Maybe finally admitting the problem is the first step. Regardless, something has got to give because the rollercoaster weight loss ride is starting to make me nauseous!!!!

New countdown coming soon...Florida in JUNE!!!!!


  1. If a therapist that specializes in food addictions. It is truly an issue many people have. Also contact a questions on how to make your favorite foods better. A great resource that I love is the website a black girls guide to weight loss. Ms. Kendell has meal plans. I will say every meal is delcious.

    I wish you much success.

  2. Thanks so much. I'm going to look into all three of those. At this point I'm pulling out all stops.

  3. I definitely agree with meeting with registered dietitian. This was one of the best things I did for myself. She really helped me with figuring out a healthy eating plan not a diet. Also, working with therapist can be soooo helpful. I recommend that too.

    I've heard good things about the Beck Diet Solution. It's a book by a doctor who talks about intuitive eating..
