January Weight Loss Update: 5 Things that Helped Me Lose Weight

Let me start off by saying no matter what my weight is, I’m going to make the best of it. Even though I can make it “Do what it Do” doesn’t mean I still don’t want to get back to my “Happy” size and or weight. My entire closet is filled with clothes for my Happy size. I think we all have a Happy size.

In October after my trip to Turks and Caicos where I drunk and ate around the clock, I was over it. I was at my highest weight outside of being pregnant. I was actually wasn’t that far away from my delivery weight. That’s when I told myself I had to do something. I did. I ate right and shed a few pounds in just two weeks. Then Thanksgiving came. I threw it all out the window. Then the holidays came and I experienced seasonal depression for a couple of weeks. Food was my comfort. I gained everything I lost back and then some.

Spicy Turkey Slaw

I’m finally getting around to documenting my latest viral IG story recipe. So many of you have made it just by watching my stories. Here it is! My bootleg cracked slaw recipe. I came up with this concoction because all the cracked slaw recipes I found were too complicated. If you watch me cook, I just want it to be good and fast. This recipe has been a staple in my weight-loss journey. It’s lean, lowfat, low carb and super tasty. It is spicy so if you don’t like spicy, you’ll have to adjust and I can’t promise it will have the same delicious taste.

I’ve been struggling to get back to my pre-baby weight from both Harper and Peyton. That may never happen but I’m still determined to be in the best shape for ME and fit back in to the clothes in my closet.

Every year around this time, I start to reflect on my year. I ask myself, did I crush my goals? What will my new goals be? A few goals always remain at the top of my list: getting fit and taking care of my skin. I know, I say that every year and I genuinely work on them every year. I may not be at my goal size but what if that wasn’t one of my goals? What if I didn’t try at all? I’d probably be 20 or 50 pounds heavier. No, Ma’am. I’m happy to share with you guys how I plan on crushing these goals by stepping up my fitness game using Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant and skincare tips from Dove dermatologist, Dr. Alicia Barba.

Since it Mother’s Day weekend I thought I would update you on my weight loss progress since most of us moms (women in general) struggle with trying to lose weight.  It’s been a while since my last breakdown update.  The last time I shared about my weight loss struggle I was battle the thoughts of giving up.  I’m glad I didn’t.  Here are a few before and progress photos.  I’m not going to use the term after because I’m not done.  This is a lifestyle for me and always will be.  In addition to the progress photos, I also wanted to share what has been helping me on this journey.
