Earlier in October I showed you hottie my real weight. I’m keeping it real with y’all I was like WTF?! I am way too short to have all this weight. My journey originally started with wanting to look better in my clothes. I think that;s why most people start. As I’ve matured on this journey I’ve realized it is more important for my all around health to be at a weight more suitable for someone my height. I am 5’1”. I know that my current weight is not matching my health goals. What are your health goals?
I made a plan last month to go to the gym, to workout at least 3 times a week and to eat better. At least one of those things happened. I did eat better! I controlled my portions and drank a whole lot more water. As I flushed my system I began to feel energetic, but there was still something missing. Sidenote: Portion control is really the key for me. There’s only so much I’m going to replace, give up, before I feel like I;m being punished. Although my energy increased I still felt like I was missing something.
Then it hit me like a V8 to the head. I needed to workout. I’m sure I could lose weight with portion control and be slightly energetic as the weight dropped, but if I’m honest if I want to improve my overall health I know I need to incorporate some physical activity. So back to the gym I go! It’s more of a mental thing for me, then a physical. I need to mentally prepare myself for the changes I want to see, no matter how long they take. Will you join me? My goal is to go to the gym at least 3 times a week.
Update my current weight is 226, previously 229.3 a loss of 3.3 pounds.
