Weight Loss Journey
I have been very bad about updating about my weight loss as I had promised, but now that I only have 44 short days until the wedding I am going to make a conscience effort to update. I am a day late but I love Mrs. Sutherland's weigh in Wednesday idea! I will get on board with that next week, but for now I will update you all on progress thus far. I joined Urban Active a little over a year ago, and also got a trainer. I have been working out regularly since then, and I really loved my trainer, but he ended up leaving the gym so I was offered the option to do boot camp instead of one-on-one training. Well I just thought my trainer before was really good, but now I realize he didn't really give me the push I needed, or the knowledge. So as I said before at the beginning of this year I really began to get serious. I started doing boot camp three times a week, and cardio the other three. I will say it took me a while to get it right, but with the help of my awesome trainer I have realized exactly what it takes to see results. The most important thing I have learned is losing weight is 80% diet and 20% exercise. The two have be just right together to make it work, now I am speaking for myself and I am someone who has a hard time losing weight. Some can drop lbs easily by changing one thing, but for me its not as easy. I have learned so much on this journey, and have really made a complete lifestyle change, my MAIN problem were carbs, and I don't even think about eating them after lunch anymore. At the beginning of the year I weighed 168, and I am happy to say that I now weigh 152!!! My goal was to weigh 130 by the wedding day, and I don't know if that will happen, but the most important thing is I feel great, and could not be more proud of myself. I am going to make a conscience effort to continue my healthy lifestyle after my wedding , and hopefully keep the weight off! I have to thank all my friends, family, and Luke for all the support they have given me=).
