I miss writing which is the main reason why I have decided to start another (this is not my first) blog. I'm working on getting to my goal weight and I know if I write about my journey, I will stay on track. I am also a creative soul who has creative thoughts running through her mind all day long. I need an outlet where I can release those creative thoughts. I'm hoping to use my blog as that necessary outlet.
I am twenty six years old. I owe everything I have to Jesus. I have wonderful parents who raised me right. I am from Southern California and I currently reside there. I did, however, live in Nashville, TN for three years. I am a country girl at heart. I love the south. I love country music. I love big hair, belt buckles and cowboy boots. I have a brother and soon to be sister-in-law. I have an amazing boyfriend who treats me like a princess. I have a hand full of best friends spread all over the country. I have a baby (malti-poo) named Nash. I sing. I write. I dream. I enjoy reading. I started running last year after thinking I could never be a runner. I am a firm believer in what I believe in. I can be quite shy. Coffee, concerts and jewelry are my addictions.
I guess I've always been on a weight loss journey but something clicked in the fall of 2010. I saw a number on the scale that I had never seen in my entire life. It scared me and I made the decision (on my own) to work hard to lower that number. The day before my twenty fifth birthday in 2012 I stepped on the scale to a number that I was incredibly happy about. I had lost seventy two pounds. Now, a little over a year later and I've gained about twenty five pounds back. It's a constant battle but I haven't given up and I don't intend to. I really have no goal weight in mind. I think I will just know in my heart when I have reached my ideal weight.
I work out but I would like to focus on working out more. And I eat really well. A heck of a lot better than I was eating at my heaviest. I try to eat clean most of the time. I try to avoid most packaged and preserved foods. Every day is a new challenge and I've learned to take it one meal at a time. I tend to make myself feel guilty when I slip up and I am working on that as well. I can't be perfect. All I can do is try my hardest.
