12/19/13

I thought it would be beneficial and therapeutic to start blogging and documenting this weight loss journey.

For those of you who know me, my weight has been a struggle for a long time. I tend to be an emotional eater and a binge eater when going through emotionally challenging times. I've been on this current weight loss journey since November 1, 2013. We are currently almost 7 weeks in.

Prior to conceiving my daughter I was able to lose nearly 60 pounds through calorie counting and exercise. During my pregnancy with her I gained most of it back and after her birth my weight quickly climbed back to my all time high (the number I was at prior to the 60 pound weight loss) I've never really told anyone that number. But for accountability sake, I will try and be more transparent here. This will be a journal of my progress, frustrations, victories, and food ideas.

So, I'm trying to make changes. I am a fast food and pop addict. This coupled with my emotional eating habits makes losing weight very difficult. My husband is currently deployed overseas and my emotional health is tested on a daily basis.

Below I will list my starting stats from November and also where I am now. I will also share first goal outfit photos. These photos are of me in a bathing suit that I hope to wear on a Caribbean cruise I will be taking at the beginning of March.

So, here's the stats:

Weight for November 1, 2013: 240lbs
