Weigh In Stat!/Purchase From Forever 21

Here It Is!

I was 146lbs last week and now I'm 143.6lbs! I lost 3lbs, for whatever reason I thought I was going to lose more but that's a good amount. I'm still eating in 3 small meal portions and no snack. Guys, it's not easy (sometimes)! There are times I have my days where I just want to pull my hair out or go order or eat the foods that I miss. I crave peanut butter!!! I want it so bad! What do I have to do to have a peanut butter jelly sandwich! Ginger snap cookies with a TALL cold glass of milk I cry for! I whine, I plead, I want! But I know this is for my good health and self-discipline and self-control. Remember my cheat days? HA! No more cheat days, there is no such, so do you all feel my pain? I have my kidneys to remind me of why I have to eat the way I do. I have my dietitian to remind me why I have to eat the way I do. I still have discomfort and pain from the kidney biopsy to remind me of why I have to eat the why I do. Talk about need a relief!!!! Talk about deprived!!!!! Whaaaaaa, sniff, sniff! Oh well, get over it! Lol!

What keeps me going? This is the best I have looked in decades! My skin glows like crazy! I have gotten so many compliments on my face! Smooth, silky, soft, glowy. Eating natural (no processed foods, no chicken, red meat) really does show in your skin. Remember, all I drink is water and I may have cranberry juice which is water down 2x a week. I don't know my exact size yet, but hopefully I'll go to a store and try on some jeans. ALL the pants I had I can no longer wear because they are too big! I had to get rid of the 12, and 10! I'm loving my mystery size, lol!


Big rings! If you like these rings you can get them from
My favorite one is the flower ring. Usually I would have gone for a more subtle color, but you know I need to live more and go for a louder color, so I did red! I love it too!
Black and white ring cost $6.80 each and the red flower, I forgot, but it wasn't more then $6.

Now bargin shoppers as myself, guess what? The blk and white ring I first saw at and they wanted close to $30 for those rings. Then Traci Lynn was selling those same rings for $24! Then I went to Forever21 (always check F21 they have stuff cheaper) and viola $6 bucks! Holla!!!!!!

I had a Dr.'s appt. today in Baltimore this morning, that's why there was a in delay posting. I was thinking about you all...I wasn't going to stand yall up for weigh in.


Check new pic on right, it was taken last week. Size 10 pants were sagging.

Bumped into the site completely by accident and was totally inspired. I am struggling to get started on this very journey myself having fallen behind so many times. It's always encouraging to see someone special succeed and speak candidly about it. I congratulate you!

PS: You are WORKING that size 10 skirt! Where did you get it?

Lady A said...

@Anonymous, Welcome! Thank you so much and yes you can do it, it's just starting it
The skirt is Bisou Bisou from JC Penny's. I think I got it last year.
