So operation lose weight failed miserably first time around. I had actually lost 22 lbs. Life happened. I went to a breakup with my son’s father, had to move back home to save money, then move back to Atlanta, ending up somewhere I didnt like and had to move again!. I had lost all motivation during this time and gained back everything i had lost except 5 lbs!. Now that I am happy, settled and worry free, I am ready to give it another go!
I started my journey on 9/9/2013 at 250.2 lbs
I am doing a detox and as of 9/13 I am 237.8. I know its just water weight but the decreasing numbers make me keep going! I am ready to do this yet again and be on #teamsexyashell!
I vowed to workout every single day. No off days. It is killing me that I couldnt workout today because of my leg. It has been hurting for the past week and each day the pain gets more intense, but ive been working through it, but tomorrow is a new week and I plan to go hard. I figured id give my leg a break. I hope tomorrow its better. I refuse to go another day not working out.
When doing a blog about weightloss, honestly nobody cares what you have to say, they just want to see the before and after pictures. Im guilty of this as well.
I have taken many before pictures and Yes I do plan to post them, but I am not going to until I lose a significant amount of weight. At least 40-50 lbs. Why? Simply because they are embarrassing, and before I post them, I want to be able to say ” I no longer look like that”. Right now, I still look like that lol and there is no way I want to show the internets 255 lbs of my fatness. I am on this journey for the long haul and will not stop until i reach my goal. So there WILL be before and AFTER pics. TRUsT me!
Unfortunately, I am a very picky none variety food eater. i like the same thing over and over. I am kind of closed minded about what I put in my mouth. *wink.
People are usually embarrassed to take me to restaurants because I smell my food. Im sorry, but im not putting anything in my mouth that smells funny!
So daily, I plan to record my food and its estimated calories, but you will see the same stuff. -shrugs

Today is Sunday March 10 2013 and the end of my first week dieting. I am happy to say I am down 7 lbs.
A little background.. Well.. ive never been skinny. Ive always had plenty of meat and I am extremely top heavy.
The lowest I have weighed in adult life is 160 lbs. I am 5′8.
Luckily I am very shapely, and never look what I actually weigh. Unfortunately, I used that as an excuse to eat what I wanted and never work out. I killed my metabolism, I would consume 5000 calories a day easily and think nothing of it. I stayed in the lower 200s for years, then in 2006 i ballooned to 230. That’s why I knew something had to be done. So i dieted or better yet, I starved myself. I didnt eat a thing, only drank slim fast, when I did start eating it was maybe 500 calories a day, if that. I dropped to 170, i lost 60 lbs relatively fast and kept it off for a couple years. I moved to california and went back to 200, I would gain a little, lose a little. It was an going battle. In 2011 I became pregnant, sadly my beautiful twins did not survive. I put on weight that I never lost, then a few short months later in 2012, I was pregnant again. I gained 20 lbs while pregnant and another 15 after giving birth. That put me at my highest weight of 255.8. I could not take it anymore, something had to be done. I was totally disgusted and turned off by my own self!
On march 4th 2013, i started eating healthy, counting calories, and working out! I am feeling good and feeling great. My overall goal is 100 lbs!
