Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2015

So I have slacked on blogging, definitely one of my New Years resolutions. I have managed to stick to last years New Years resolution which is dieting, and I have made my regular Saturday weigh-ins, I just have not posted. I hope to update soon, before my dieting year ens, which is mid Jan. My New Years resolution will always be part of my life, or should I say, a way of life. I had a wonderful Christmas, with Williams extended family, then Christmas eve with his mom, sister and niece and nephews. Then we spent Christmas morning, and the whole day just us 3 (William, myself and Daisy), it was really really nice.

I am such a lucky person, waited all my life to find true love, and I have in William, bless his heart. So My honey, got me a treadmill, tried it out today, I am going to love using it. I just have to watch out for my little girl, and be sure she don’t accidentally get in or on it, gosh that would be horrible. I think the noise frightens her off, which is good. This coming year, I want to work hard, at toning my body up, and continue losing weight, by next Christmas, I feel I will get at a place I am happy with.

This past year is just a beginning, I have lost a lot of weight, but now its time to firm up what I have. I am not done yet, I still have more weight to lose, I am so thrilled. I wish my mom was around to see me. She would be happy for me, that I was able to find the willpower with in me to lose weight. I miss you Mom.

Oh and before I go, I wanted to share my Christmas manicures.

That is about all for now. I will see you all in 2015, I hope your 2014, was as amazing for you as it was for me. So many wonderful things happened, I look forward to many more wonderful things in 2015. Blessings to you and your loved ones.

Dieting and Me

Not on a dietSo it has been a while since I posted. I have been super busy with some of my other websites, but now that I have that in order *yay* I can start blogging normally. So the last I posted about was the biggest loser, I’m not going to get into that, instead I am going to briefly talk about my dieting, as the title suggests.

 

In January 2014, I decided to finally fulfill one of my New Years resolutions, I’m trying to do more than one but a big one that a lot of us have a hard time keeping up with is losing weight. So I dove right in. Found out what my calorie intake should be, it’s 1,660, and I have been doing wonderful. Being that the weather has been so cold, going out and walking was not an option, because I have a bad knee and I don’t want to risk walking and slipping and re-injuring my knee, because that will lead to hospital time and a big fat bill.

 

I had already been in the hospital this year, I don’t want to go again. So I am waiting for some wonderful warm weather to start so I can start my walking, even if it is just to the laundry facility here in the complex, it’s something, then go to the Post office and CVS. I think it’s a beginning. To date I have lost 32.5 lbs, I am very proud of that, because that is the most I ever lost in my life, being at the weight I am now, which I am too embarrassed to share at this moment heh It is a slow process, as you all know, losing is harder than gaining. I’m planning to perhaps get a treadmill for walking at home. Any suggestions? Nordictrack looks good. But we’ll see.

 

My eating habit is much better. I’ve been eating some prepared meals, mostly at lunch time. Everything I consume is charted, in my handy MyFitnessPal app, it’s a great app, I’m sure I have talked about it before. William usually will buy me the Smart Ones, Lean Cuisine etc, since I only have them for lunch, occasionally dinner they last. So when a sale comes around, you know we are buying. I know don’t use reg sugar, I use substitute sugar, I’m happy with Truvia and Stevia Organic, I drink fat free milk, I use fat free cheese, always looking for the lowest calorie items.

 

William is my #1 supporter on this, since he is here. He is incredible, and I thank the lord I found someone like that, none of my ex’s were like that, I tell you, HE IS THE ONE, for me anyway. I’m not ready to show photos of myself, again way too embarrased, but when I have felt that I see a difference, perhaps then I will. I have to say I do feel it. I use to walk up the stairs and get winded out before I reached the top, no longer happens, I am so happy. You have no idea. This is my journey, I thank you for coming along with me. You can see what I eat, I post photos on instagram, you can see that on the sidebar to the right. Follow if you like, and if you are a MyFitnessPal user, add me as a friend, or contact me here on this site, I’ll look for you.

 

Ok that is it for now, have a great day!
