    I didn't really start my journey

    until February of this year but came across a picture from October 2014 and putting them side/side just blew me away. So glad I decided to make a change, improve my life & health. Message me if you are in the U.S. & want to know my secret.

    So after many years of not taking care of my

    weight, this past October I decided it was time. Since then I have lost 28 pounds. This only involves diet changes and NO exercise. I know I need to exercise but am not ready for that yet. Basically, I have cut down to about 1200 - 1500 cal per day, adding fruit and veggies...

    I have been suffering with Depression

    throughout my whole high school experience, and I can't help but think some of that breeds from my weight. All of my friends are size zeros and skinny, and well, I am not. I have been trying to lose weight, but I have been doing so in an unhealthy manner, like not eating much. I...

    15 more pounds to go,

    and I will hit my first 100 pound weight loss milestone since I started 2 years ago- February of 2014! If I lose about 50 more I'll be back in the healthy weight range for my body! :)

    I went from not working out to workout out 4

    times a week and cutting out many unhealthy foods. So proud of myself.

    Growing up, I was a little chubby.

    I hung out with the popular crowd of beautiful skinny girls and i was known as the "cool but chubby chick." I hated that! No one wants to be known as "that" girl. I am 5'2 and back then, 130 pounds was ALOT of weight. (i know , it's not that big).I became anorexic and lost...

    I weighed myself today

    and the scale announced that I had lost 8lbs but I don't feel any lighter or like my clothes fit better. I had sworn off weighing myself because I tend to find the ordeal plays mind games with me and I'm likely to get discouraged. I can only take solace in the fact that I have...

    About two years ago I managed to lose 20 kilos

    in the space of 3 months, which was the best progress in weight loss I've ever had. Sadly, since then, I put that weight back on plus about 15kg more. Two weeks ago I started up my weight loss journey once again. I'm not really worrying about the scales too much, just focusing...
