New YouTube Channel – Follow My Weightloss Journey!

Hello lovies and Happy New Year!I know it’s been a long time, but if you’ve been with me for a while, you know that not only is Christmas season super busy for me, but so is January since that’s Johanna’s birthday month and I’m swamped in party planning. But I’m very excited about my news today!

For some time now, about a year or so, I’ve suffered from low self-esteem. I haven’t been able to pin point why. What I did know was that my weight was a part of it. I even began to avoid looking in mirrors. I would go to get ready for the day, very briefly look at my face to make sure it was presentable, then quickly look away. It was making me sad to be me.

I had gained weight. I was no longer “size sexy”. For majority of my life I loved me and the skin I’m in and even thought I wasn’t the beauty industries idea of sexy, I didn’t care because I was my idea of sexy. But summer 2015 I discovered that I was almost the same weight I was when I had Johanna and that was not only shocking, but hurtful.

Since summer I have been working on me and falling in love with me again. A week ago I decided to chronicle my journey on youtube not only to help others, but to gain support for myself. By the way, I’m currently down 44 pounds. Check out my channel to find out why I’m still not over the moon about that.

I really do hope that you will join me on my journey. I may report here from time to time, but I’m going to report more specifically about weightloss on the youtube channel as to not turn this into a weightloss blog. I also have a second instagram account to go with the channel so I hope that you will follow that as well. You can find my youtube channel here and my instagram account here.

Thank you for your support, and I hope that you find success on your journey’s as well!

I WILL eat clean, I WILL eat clean, I WILL eat clean…

Yesterday I chanted those very words as soon as I got to work, and I did real good for breakfast. I had protein for breakfast and fruit. I was well on my way…until the receptionist sent an email an hour later about there being food in the kitchen. I went to the kitchen with the intention of finding something to snack on since I didn’t bring much with me. That’s when I met an apple danish I couldn’t say no to…and I ate every single bite. Le sigh. Not today. Today I realy WILL eat clean! I’m determined to make this a lifestyle change. Pray my strength!
