Welp...here I am...-100lbs less than I was just 10 months ago!
No, I did not starve myself or develop any type of eating disorder... that's just not me.
I just started to want healthier foods. Processed foods and dead animals suddenly disgusted me. Fresh fruits and vegetables became appealing and so those are the things I put in my body, the excess weight seemed to just melt away.
I'm wearing my son's medium t-shirt and medium shorts in the right pic, because all my 3xl and 46inch waist shorts just swim on me.
I'm not done, I need to focus on toning up and I'd like to lose another 40lbs. I'm big boned/husky built so I know realistically I'm not meant to be a size 0. But, I know I am sure as heck not meant to be over 300+ lbs and so obese. Now I'm 200lbs and still going forward....carry on!!! (The left pic was mid February 2018 and the right pic was today)

Happy Monday! 🔥 Another week and another fresh start! The year is not over, there's still time to make progress on your goals. #letsdothis
Monday’s words of wisdom from Writer, Joseph Lane Kirkland "Don't believe that winning is really everything. It is more important to stand for something. If you don't stand for something, what do you win?" Action for today is to reconnect with something you stand for and then take some action that supports it.
Have an extraordinary day!

I’m starting to realize I’m not going to meet my goal for this holiday #dietbet and I’m really getting down on myself. I have until the 16th to lose 5 pounds and before the dietbet started I dropped my 10 pounds of water weight. I am really disappointed in myself because I wanted so badly to prove I could do this and lose 4% of my body weight in a month and I just don’t know how I’m going to lose 5lbs this week. I also desperately need the money that comes with a win soo there’s that 🤷🏼♀️ any advice for dropping weight quickly?
STRONGER for the journey you have taken! Would you do all of the things that you normally do if you knew that no one was watching?
When was the last time you did something good without anyone knowing about it and felt like you'd accomplish something
We tend to wait for people to praise us for things that we do so we can feel that there was a value for what we did.
We add meaning to what we do through the way that we know people will receive it and this is relative to who we are trying to impress at which time,and for what purpose that makes us want to be perceived in the most positive way by those who appeal most to us.
. Or, those who have the power to have an impact in our lives it is not wrong to want to be perceived in a good way. We all want to be good people but this becomes problematic when the praise that we received becomes the purpose of what we do instead of wanting to do good things because of the goodness in our hearts.
. We want to do things because we want to impress others to seem to be better than others or even to compete with others when we have sincere intentions.
Nothing can stand in the way of us feeling happy and content with what we do.

Day 10/12!! @coachcollybam : I remember holding my 20 month old and 4 month old in my arms and saying “Momma needs to change!” I felt like I was past the point of survival mode.
My energy was non existent and my eating habits where at an all time low. I wanted to so badly get back to exercise and into a routine but felt loss on where to start.
I had been an athlete my entire life but loss myself after becoming a mother.
I knew Beachbody had amazing tools and products but what I was really needing was the community. Lucky for me I got it ALL when I finally said YES to my coach. I turned my bad habits into healthy ones and haven’t looked back.

Hallelujah 🙌 goodbye, water weight...hello, Monday
I wanna talk about something real quick. And I don’t know if any of y’all have experienced this or maybe I’m just a weirdo and overthink everything. But over the weekend, someone (a coworker/friend) told their boyfriend to tell me I’m pretty. This has happened to me more than once by different people and times. I never know the true reasons. Pity? That’s my best bet. The girl is trying to “boost my self esteem” and just assumes I’m down in the dumps because of the way my body looks? So I guess...PSA, girls. Don’t do this. It’s insincere and perpetuates the idea that girls need the approval of boys to feel good about themselves.
About 9 days left in this dietbet and I am struggling. Between birthdays and holiday parties I have only lost about 2 lbs since the start of the bet. It’s going to be a low-carb, high cardio week. Going to do it safely of course, consuming 1400-1600 calories and getting enough sleep. Including a pic of me from my friends mermaid birthday party a week ago to remind myself that the scale and the mirror won’t always get along. #fatgirlfedup#fatgirlfedupsdietbet
I’m not where I want to be, hell im not even in a place where I’m comfortable but I’m still here, still breathing and still trying to make it through the day to day. I need to get to the realization that I’m not going to lose 100lbs over night, or in a month it’s going to take a hell of a long time. One day at a time
Baby, it’s cold outside ❄️

Dear moms: It’s ok to be selfish
Love your kids yes, but also remember to take time to love yourself.
We dropped Glori off yesterday morning and headed a whopping 30 minutes away from our house to have a kid-free weekend full of shopping and fun...and more shopping 😂 basically my husband is the most amazing husband on the planet 😍 although he does make me carry my own bags, but I’m pretty sure that’s a clever attempt to ale sure I don’t buy the entire store 🤷🏻♀️ Anyways, back to being selfish:
When we told people we were stopping at one kid, I was called selfish.
When we told people we were taking a week long vacation to Florida including a day at Disney WITHOUT our daughter, I was called selfish.
When I told people we were leaving her for the weekend to have some time alone, I was called selfish.
Basically people are always going to have an opinion on your life, don’t worry so much about other people’s opinions...it’ll drive you mad 🤪
Moral of the story: SELFISH IS SMART!
What I’m not saying is ditch your kid(s) every chance you get 😂 some of y’all just booked girls night out every weekend for the next 6 months before even finishing this post 🙈 not what I’m saying...sorry but you should prob cancel majority of those 😜
If you’ve followed me any length of time you know how much I love my daughter and spoil her rotten 👸 she gets mommy/daughter dates, daddy/daughter dates, shopping trips, play dates, TONS of one on one time.
She is loved, but as moms, we also need to remember to love ourselves. Take time to fill your cup up, because if your cup is empty, you have no love to give to your families ❤️ #fitmom#homeschool#toddlermom#biohacking#weightloss#weightlossjourney#homeschoolmom#sayyestoyou#christmas#langehair#mommyblogger#christmaslights#ketoguido#marriedlife#money#fatgirlfedup#skinnycoffeebabes#elfonashelf#happyholidays#peaceloveandlowcarb#hotmessmom#toddlerlife#lange#christmascash#momlife
I’ve been teetering for WEEKS! But I finally hit it, and have been there for 3 solid weigh ins so I call it official LOL. What’s so significant about it? I didn’t think I could do it. I gave up on myself years ago and said I would always be obese. I said I would just never know what it was like to NOT be plus size. I gave up because it’s hard. I gave up because it’s a real fight to lose weight and keep it off! I gave up because I let my mind convince me that food was more Important than being healthy. I was constantly thinking about food and meals....carbs carbs carbs. I ate whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted and I never counted a calorie or weighed myself. Then I’d be all depressed when I would step on the scale and see that I was just getting bigger and bigger. I didn’t have control AT ALL over my mind or my body. A good friend of mine is on this journey as well (and KILLING IT TOO) - and he asked me this week, “what made it click for you?” And I said...well first there was the red sweater picture 👀 - see the first post on this account. But then it was turning 29 and realizing I wasted an entire decade saying I was going to lose weight but not actually doing it. I promised myself I would be in the best shape of my life in my 30s. So here’s to it! What’s it gonna take for you to say, “that’s it. I’m done being unhealthy.”? Find that, and start with me. Don’t wait until after the holidays - just start. #girlwashyourface#fattofitjourney#fatgirlfedup#weightlossjourney#fattofit
Holy katz!! I did it! More progress in the next week but goal #1 done!! @fatgirlfedup ❤❤
TGIF. Friday’s words of wisdom from Poet and Author, Ralph Waldo Emerson "Always do what you are afraid to do." Action for today is to take a chance and do something you've been afraid of doing.
Have an extraordinary day!
My body has been in a bit of a plateau the past month or so. I was going to the gym almost every day but my nutrition wasn’t necessarily in check. I was sick a little over a month ago for about a week and then after that it was hard to get back on track with my eating, but again I was working out pretty hard 4-6 times a week. This past week marked 1 month without any weight loss progress. I even gained 2-4lbs. I was feeling defeated. But then I thought “maybe I’m not eating enough”. I’ve heard of under eating being a cause for lack of weight loss. So I decided to calculate my macros according to the @gaugegirltraining method and I found that I was in fact under eating by about 400 calories for my current weight, age, etc.
So this past week I decided I would follow her macros for the next few months and see if anything happened. I feel fuller longer and all day since I’m eating 3 meals, a snack and a protein shake. After just a week I broke my plateau and lost a little over 2.5 lbs without even going to the gym once. This goes to show just how important nutrition really is into weight loss journey and that working out is just supplemental and to help shape my body. I have purchased the Endomorph gym training guide and the Shred on a Budget. I am slowly implementing some of the recipes from the meal plans and some of the workouts from the training guide to slowly immerse myself into these plans completely because I’ve learned to take it slow and my body will thank me. **You can swipe right for my overall progress. I am now down 27.5lbs in 6 months.
