To Be Continued!?!?

I have been wondering about whether or not to keep up this blog after class. I would have to say that yes, I will be keeping up this blog.

I will probably be doing some up dating, and different things, but it will be still centered around my journey.

I was really going back and forth about it, but when I kept getting asked advice by people. I realized I could just say, check out my blog...

So Stay Tuned!!....

People wanna know..

I am really suprised at how many people have been asking me lately.. How did you do it? But when you say 95 pounds people really wanna know.

I am bringing this up, becuase I have recently gotten two messages on facebook, by girls asking me for advice. This makes me sit back and really think about how I just by changing my eating habits, can become someone people look at as an example.

If you had told me a year ago that i would be 95 pounds lighter, and the happiset i have ever been I would have told you, that you were crazy .

I know know that it is good that people wanna know, becuase I can tell them how!

Exercise, how I "hate" thee...

I know you are not supposed to hate something, but I really very strongly dislike exercise!

It hurts at times, you get echausted, and you wake up sore. Not the best use of my time, but yes it is good for you. I know this I just don't like doing it.

I know I have asked this a couple of times, but I haven't gotten any suggestions, so again I ask what are someways I can exercise, and not hate it??

Now pics!!

I thought it would only be fair to share some of my recent faveorite pics, since I have now lost 95 pounds!! As I have saide in earlier post these ARE NOT after pics, but now pics becuase I am not in my after stage yet!!

 Formal!

Before pics !!

Some people keep saying , I can't believe you used to weigh that much. Well here are some more before pictures I dug up to show how far I have come!!

These were all taken this summer...aka about 50 some odd pounds ago....


The fast food diet?

Ok, you you might be wondering what is this crazy girl talking about? I just wanted to adress a common myth. Which is you can't eat out and lose weight.... LIE!! If you eat the wrong things then yes, but if you watch it you can definately eat out, and lose weight.

Here are some tips:

1. Research the resturant: most places have menus with calories per serving listed, and grams of fat.
2. Don't finnish your plate: leave a couple of bites!!
3. Get grilled instead of fried: this seems pretty self explanatory.
4. Swap your sides: instead of fries have a side salad.

Confidence...

I was talking to one of my friends tonight, and I was explaining to him that he knows the new me. His expression on his face when I said this was priceless.

He knows that I have lost a lot of weight. He then said "more assurtive you mean?" . I said yes, I never was like I am now, in high school.

This is true in high school I was misrable I never wore makeup unless I was doing speech. I wore sweats and jeans, and thats about it. I was a quite shy girl , and now....

I am me!! This is going to sound weird, but I have always been they way I am. Now I just express myself more, and I am more outgoing. I love not hiding behind my weight it makes me be fearless and I am going to keep going until I am done, becuase so far it has been great!!
