Weight Loss Journey (step one)

So here it is!! I recorded a short video of me getting on the scale and being weighed except I'm not able to upload that in my blog, not sure how?!@ but here is a picture of my current weight and I will be posting pictures from now on an electronic weight scale so it's easier to read. Today this is what I read on the scale!!!! Now don't forget I'm barely 5'0 ft tall so this is overweight for height. I've been super excited about starting this journey and I am thrilled to film my next video on YouTube showing any weight loss and if so, I will be explaining the steps I took for that. Also, starting tomorrow on day one of my journey I will start taking pictures of my breakfast lunch and dinner for a week and share that along with my food diary as well in a special video :) now I have not decided if I'm ready to share all of this with the world so let me know if you are
interested, leave a comment below with your YouTube name and I will make the video viewable to you. If you are ready to do this lets DO IT!! If you are not ready yet hopefully with my progress, vlogging, blogging, pictures and diary I will be able to motivate you=} good luck everyone!!

My "Weight Loss" Journey

Hello, if you are reading this post that means you might be interested in joining me on this weight loss journey that I will starting this Friday-since the weekend is my weakest. So if you are like me that means enjoy eating what you crave now until Friday hee hee. I will be posting pictures of me on a scale with my current weight (ahhh super personal and scary) and from there on I will be posting tips on anything that has helped me (crossing fingers) as well as weekly updates. Finding motivation to lose weight is not as hard as putting that first step forward and sticking to it. Some of the hardest obstacles I have come across right now is living with my partner (who is just genetically skinny or some kind alien species) who eats everything and anything at all hours of the night!!! Being around someone like that makes it tough to stick to a more nutritional healthy lifestyle. Another huge obstacle is being a working mother who loves to craft; meaning we do so much that when we finally have free time all we want to do is craft and play with our goodies and exercising is the last thing on our lists LOL.

1. stop eating three hours before I  go to sleep-everyone says by 6 or 7 but truth is we all go to sleep at different times so as long as it's 3 hours before your bedtime

2. eat slower-it takes time for our bodies to let us know we are full that when we eat too fast we don't leave enough time to get the message that we are full, so try putting your utensils down after every bite and take your time in chewing your food

3. drink a full cup of water before every meal- to help us feel fuller faster

3. try to limit my soda intake down to one/day

4. taking pictures of meals and blogging

5. update my blog to report my success

So stay tuned and let's begin this journey together :D
