The types of food you put in your body will make you gain or prevent you from losing weight!!! I was reading facebook one of my classmates with an incredible body stated I think i'm going to break down and have teeny tiny hamburger. Well one comment said I haven't had a hamburger in months I understand the urge. Then this morning I just knew I had lost weight I stepped on the scale and I had gained weight and I ate dramatically less than I had been eating for weeks the previous day. However I was still eating foods that were bad for me like guacamole, a fast food hamburger and a handful of popcorn. So the strawberries and bananas I had for breakfast, the salad for lunch and the orange for a snack didn't mean anything compared to the fat I put in my body. I am not saying you cannot eat fattening foods you just cannot have them everyday. I think I have had this discussion on here before so maybe it is not you all I need to convince it is myself. I will probably lose weight fast if I switch to a healthier diet because my body is so use to the excess calories. So I am going back to what I know that works...like eating a fruit salad for breakfast a salad or soup for lunch and a huge salad for dinner. Don't forget snacks like fruit with a glass of water. I never said I was not eating when I was dropping pounds like crazy I just was eating better. So what happens when I want that pasta for dinner...well I will not splurge until I get back down to 165 or 166 but I will make sure I stay consistent with exercise which will help my body burn those extra calories, and I will not have fast food, fried food, carbs, sweets every day or every week!!! those a splurge items that have to be eaten with extreme moderation. So today I had water, green tea, and apple sauce for breakfast and yes I am full but not stuffed like I normally get when I have eggs, grits, bacon and toast or pancakes and bacon. I think this will be the hardest thing I eve do I mean I have been combating my weight all my life and I am determined to control this before 2011 I will not fail again. So I wanna post some of my inspiration again you all know I love tearsnomore87 on youtube but here are some celebrities in the pictures above!!!

Okay I am not going to go back to my old habits of losing weight because obviously it is hard for me to maintain those results!!! But I do remember how much my stomach would flatten out when i was drinking water like crazy. So I am going to go back to cutting out unecessary calories from my diet by drinking water and cutting out sodas and juices!!! I also want to add a fresh fruit or veggie to every meal. These are just small changes that I hope to build on I have also been trying to stay consistent with working out last week I worked out about 3 times, this week I worked out twice so far I made a work out plan with my brother and fiance to do insanity 3 times a week and I hope to also work out in between those three insanity days for a total of maybe 4-5 days a week. I am still at about 178-179 so I am hoping to lose water weight by drinking more water and eventually actual fat by doing insanity (they are intense workouts). So hopefully Tuesday morning I will have good news. I really want to get to 174 because that use to be the highest weight I had been at I never would have thought I would be at this point and I am hoping and determined I will never get this high again...So stay tuned for results!!!

Ever heard this statement?!?!? This is exactly what happened to me I got down to 164 by not using proper means to lose weight I was exercising but I was also using my ADHD medication to supress my appetite. Now I am huge as a blimp I actually got up to 181.2 yes you are reading that correctly. I have decided to just do this the right way I have been trying to exercise at a reasonable pace last time I was going twice a day. Most importantly I monitor my intake I eat because I am bored I can literally eat and snack all day and that is what lead to the weight gain. I am happy to report im back in the 170s (178) which is probably just water loss not weight loss but anything helps to keep me motivated. I hope I can finally succeed I don't want to be that FAT woman I want to be in shape and confidant in my body I want to wear a bikini on my honeymoon and look good (did I mention I am engaged) I also don't want to look like a blimp on my wedding day either so I got some work to do and some issues to sort out...Please Stay Tuned!!!
