Happy Black History Month!
Welcome back to my blog. As you can see by the title of this post, it is a quick life update on my weight loss journey. 2018 has a lot of question marks for me, because I have no clue what to plan for this year. I have read so many blog posts about new year resolutions and felt inspired to make my own, but when it came to actually write them down, my mind just goes blank….???
So I figured that this year I am not going to make resolutions, instead I am going to set some small achievable goals for both my personal and blogging life.
One of the biggest resolutions people(including me) make on the first of January of every year is to lose weight and look good by the time summer hits. That has been my goal every single year and man, I have had a rough time with this. Last year, in one of my summer life update, I shared with you all that I am starting the process of getting bariatric surgery. Fast forward to this year, everything is so far so good, I have not changed my mind. I have been able to follow the program and went to all my scheduled appointments. Now I am just waiting for my surgery date. What I like the most is the changes that I have been able to make during this journey such as drinking more water instead of soda and high in sugar juices. Keeping track of what I eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Meal prepping, reprogramming my mind about food and adopting new healthy habits. It’s a lot of work, but it is worth it. So far I have lost 20lbs pre-surgery and I am excited to continue shedding the weight off.
That is it for now. Thank you so much for reading, until next time!
