Weight Loss Journey: Weigh-In Wednesday

Welcome to Week Two of my weight loss journey.

I am incredibly excited to report that everything has gone as planned. I've stuck to my diet and fitness plan religiously and it's starting to show.

I've lost a total of 9 pounds.

I've also lost 2.5 inches overall on my bust, waist, and hips.

I know that these before and after photographs do not show a huge difference, but I'll still be sharing them week by week, so that once it does start to show, I'll have images to look back on how far I've come.

Weight Loss Journey: Day 5

It is officially "Day 5" of my weight loss journey. I am excited to report that I haven't missed a beat.

Everyday since I started this journey (on August 13, 2014), I've gotten in at least 30 minutes of cardio exercise. Today, I also squeezed in 15 minutes of strength training, including squats, reverse flies, and lunges (all without weights at this point).

There is not a considerable difference in my appearance and to be honest, that is to be expected. It hasn't even been a week. I continue reminding myself that it will take four weeks for me to notice a difference, eight weeks for those around me, and twelve weeks for the rest of the world.

Sonora Nutrition Garcinia Cambogia Review

My weight has always been quite the issue for me and a few weeks ago, I had the chance to try Garcinia Cambogia--a weight loss supplement. Naturally, I jumped right on that opportunity.

Five Finger Tees: Affordable, High Quality T-Shirts

As you probably already know, I am a huge fan of The Walking Dead--and one of my favorite parts is when Andrea and Michonne come upon the little community of "Woodbury." Needless to say, when I saw this t-shirt on Five Finger Tees, I knew I had to have it.

Cleopatra's Choice Pure Shea Butter Review

Believe it or not, many of the products that you see on store shelves claiming to contain "Shea butter" only contain trace amounts of it. Most of the time, they're also laden with chemicals. That is not the case, however, with this particular Pure Shea Butter.

Weight Loss Journey: Day 1

Today was the beginning of my weight loss journey, and I would like to outline my plans for you.

First and foremost, I'd like to share my starting weight and a few photographs:

225 Pounds

You have absolutely no idea how difficult it is for me to share the second and third picture with the world. I feel very, very ashamed. However, I feel that it must be done to help myself find the motivation I need to stay on track.
