Day 1- About ME!!

This post is a little bit about me! 
For those of you that follow me and my blog, I'm sure you know all about me but this is going to be different. This is going to be written from me and about me, how I see myself!

Today I woke up and was not very motivated at all. Honestly, I did not want to do the 31 Day Challenge I am forcing myself to do it! I am stepping way way way outside of my comfort zone with this!

When I look in the mirror I just don't like what I see, I used to before I got pregnant, before I had Alyssa and before I gained 30lbs!!

I use to love to go shopping for super cute outfits that would fit me perfectly and make me look gorgeous!

But now I dread going shopping! I hate it! Clothes don't fit me how they used too! My body has changed! I have curves, I have a booty (its little peeps but its there haha!), I have breasts! 
I never used to have these but now I do!

I have pretty much gone up 2 dress sizes since my pregnancy!

I weighed 199lbs at 9 months pregnant! I only gained 29lbs during the entire pregnancy but man did it change my body! My hips are wider and my belly is not as flat! I wasn't super skinny before I got pregnant but I wasn't like this!

I am super embarrassed to say this, but currently I am weighing in at 192.2lbs

How is it that when I left the hospital after giving birth to Alyssa I weighed 170ish I think more towards 172lbs but now 3 years later I almost weigh as much as I did when I was 9months pregnant!  
How is that even possible!

Well......this is how!!

I am a fast food junkie! There are literally days that I am craving Chick-Fil-A or McDonalds! I will eat a well balanced meal provided by my wonderful sister Ashley and still feel the craving to go eat some waffle fries with cheese sauce! 
You just get in this habit of eating junk and it seems like that's all your body wants!
I use to be addicted to Coca-cola! Like I would get headaches when I didn't drink it! My body was getting use to the caffeine! I was headed down a very dark path of bad choices and uncontrollable eating!

Not anymore!! I refuse to gain anymore weight!! Today is the day that I take a stand against my fast food and coca-cola addiction!! 

Today is the day that I make healthier eating habits and take control of my weight!!


  1. This is great!!! I am looking forward to following your progress this month. I need to lose about 15 lbs. I've been trying to get motivated. It's been hard, but your post is motivating me. I look forward to following along with you.

    Blessings ~~ dawn

    1. Awww Thank you Dawn! That is so sweet! It has been a long time coming for me but it is time! If I don't do it now I probably will never do it!! :)
      Please keep me motivated!!

  2. Looking forward to following you along the 31 day adventure. Don't give in to temptation. I'm sure you're going to past multiple fast-food places as you travel around town just going to random places and work. That large Coca-Cola from McDonald's only takes three minutes to get for $1.06, but has over 400 calories alone! Stay strong! Looking forward to seeing the outcome on October 31st!!

    1. Thank you so much Michael! That means a lot! I'm trying really hard to stay strong! We will see!! :)
