Have 50+ pounds to lose?

Then I want YOU on my feed! I love my followers, every single one of them but I’m also looking for even more like minded and like bodied beautiful people who also have 50, 100 or more pounds to lose that I can follow and will follow me back!

I have over 100 pounds to lose and am looking for motivation, others to share ups and downs with and share in one another’s victories as we go through our journeys to become more fit!

I have had such an amazing journey losing weight and getting healthy. There were many ups and there were many downs but boy has it been one of my favorite chapters of my life.
 Weight has always been a problem for me since I was a little girl, it’s one of those strange things where I don’t remember not being concerned for my weight and I have
one of those bodies where if im not working hard at it it’s very easy for me to gain weight, which happens often, I’ll lose 20 pounds and gain back 10 i`ll lose 50 pounds and gain back 20.
 But the key is to not obsess about it. I know that`s one of those things where it`s easier said then done, but i remember obsessing so much that if i ate one bad thing I
would legit cry and feel like i failed myself. The journey can be hard like that, but you`ll enjoy it so much more if you have a better understanding of balance.

I used to be very overweight and I worked really hard and lost a bunch in a short period of time and I have gained some of it back, and people ask me if that upsets me,
and truthfully it doesn`t, not one bit does it bother me because it`s life, it`s going to happen and I enjoyed my journey so much that it`s exciting to be doing it again, and I`m still
happy with myself and you should be to. I have been having a lot of messages of people telling me how they have gone through a weightloss and have gained some of it back.
YOU GUYS, IT`S OKAY believe me, it`s okay because we`re not perfect and we sometimes slip, weather we gained a little weight or we spend too much money or let our
rooms and apartments become a mess, it`s life and we pick ourselfs back up and start all over and by doing this you appreciate your journey so much more.

 I know being on tumblr or pinterest there is a ton of amazing weightloss photos and stories and they are truly inspiring, but we also need to talk about the ugly side to
that sometimes, because the fact that no one talks about weight gain after a weightloss makes people feel discouraged and makes them feel worse about themselves and makes them feel alone because
no one talks about that. I am here to talk about that, coming from someone who has lost a lot and has gained some back I`m honest about it, I`m not ashamed of it, because
I`m working on it now, and so can you! And everyone gaines weight back for various reasons, like if they were pregant and haven`t been able to have the lifestyle back
because they no longer have the time, or maybe you were in school and had a little more time to lose weight and now you`re too busy balancing 2 jobs and can`t seem to
find the time like you had before. It`s a common issue and I`m here to go through it with you guys, because it`s okay and we`re going to work on it together!

I have already started my journey again and I feel great, and i`m not ashamed to have to lose weight again because LIFE HAPPENS sometimes, and we can`t all dedicate 2
hours in the gym and cook a healthy meal 3 times a day and so this post is for you guys, because we will find ways to overcome the challenges that stop us from being the best
we can be for ourselves !
If you have gained weight, or even if you haven`t even begun a journey at all, just know i`m here for you and know that I have exsperienced it all, and i`m here to tell you it`s okay.
If anyone ever needs to talk or wants advice on anything please do not hesitate to message me!

I`ll be sharing a lot of tricks and exercises and food ideas for those of you who just don`t have much time in your day and things that are working for me!

Fitness tip #1

Trying to lose weight or gain muscle?

Try using the lifesum app!

With this app you can add your goal and current body weight and it will calculate the calories, fats, carbohydrates, and proteins you need to reach your specific goals!

Go try it!

I want to do a challenge next month. I don’t have a prize or anything of sorts but I figured that it would help motivate us(including myself) to do this. If you’re interested you can either respond to this or message me. I don’t have any specifics but I thought it would be cool to participate with some people on here. I’m doing a challenge right now with my gym so that’s why I was waiting until next month. 😊

Fitness tip #4

Trying to lose weight??

Drink a cup of water before every meal!

This will make you feel more full and reduce the chance of overeating.

Obsessing over my work outfit today!  I’ve had this top for a while and I’ve never worn it before because it showed too much!  But today I felt I could pull it off!

Super proud of myself because my boy wanted junk for dinner and I stayed strong and convinced him to have meal prep with me instead!  And turns out I must be a little bit serious about this at the moment because there were cakes put out at work and I didn’t even go and check them out.  When someone asked me if I knew what was there I surprised myself because I’d actually forgotten all about them.  Normally I would dwell and obsess until I ate them!  Winning!

Fitness tip #10

Have a hard time getting your veggies in?

Try making smoothies in the mornings with added kale, spinach, and/or carrot juice!

This makes it easier to get your daily amount of veggies and you can barely taste them!!

Also a great way to sneak them into your kids diet as well!
