I am 90 Pounds Smaller!

I have to apologize again to my readers for not posting more often. My son started school last week, and I have had a lot on my plate lately. I won't get into all the details, but I will say life is keeping me busier than usual. I am proud to say that I have been continuing to lose weight. I am now a size 14/Large which is very exciting. I have lost so many inches, that I don't have an accurate total, and I am down 90 pounds! I haven't felt this great in many years. My outlook on life is extremely positive and I feel unstoppable. I am doing things that I never thought I could. I don't limit myself anymore like I did in the past. I know I can handle any challenge that comes my way. If I don't at first, then I will keep trying until I can.

I started at the very end of August on this weight loss journey not sure where it would lead me. I'm just so happy that I haven't quit, and I am continually improving my habits. I now eat whole foods, with very little convenience food, drink water or herbal teas, and exercise six days a week. I do take Sunday off for a nice rest. I have also started taking 2 tablespoons coconut oil daily plus I drink Sunrider teas. I am now following more of a Belly Fat Cure plan as of the last three weeks. I find it helps me to eat more fiber and really cut back on my sugar and carbohydrate intake. My belly has started flattening more plus I can see more definition in my abs. I am doing a hybrid program of Beachbody Turbo Fire and Chalean Extreme. I am in the third week of the Push phase, and I can't believe how heavy I can lift. I am lifting a minimum of 12 pounds up to 25 pounds! I feel so much stronger, and my arms are starting to show definition which is great. I can also see more definition in my legs. These are all things I really want to post more about, but not sure if many people would want to read about my weight loss journey in this blog. Or should I start a blog just for weight loss? I feel like most readers want to read about saving money and frugal living so just wondering what I should do. This is one reason why I haven't posted anything. I would love to hear what you think.

First, congrats on the weight loss!!! Keep up the great work! As for your question at the end, in my opinion, part of having a blog is sharing your experiences as well as your saving money/frugal living ideas. I say do both! Your readers will love it all!

Thanks everyone. I'm waiting until I lose 100 pounds before I take some more pictures. I want to pose in my new dress I bought for an upcoming wedding in October I have to attend. I thought it would be more inspiring, and I really can't wait to say I have lost 100 pounds!!! :)

If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because they are teaching you to love and opening your heart and eyes to things you would have never seen or felt without them.Make every day count. Appreciate.
