Operation Do Work

So I am on a mission to lose at least 10 pounds by Christmas Eve! I have gained a couple pounds because I have been slacking on the eating and working out part. Due mostly to me being sick for the last 3 weeks :( I still have a sore throat..but no excuses!! It's time to DO WORK! Here are some pics!


Finally! Both shirt and leggings are a size large! I've ALWAYS been a 2XL in shirts and leggings at Old Navy! No more X's in front of my L's ;)

Love this time of year!

Sorry it's been awhile! Things are going well! I have been slacking on working out a little, as most of you know, these things happen!! Being consistent is key! I have a lot of pics to share :)

I know, I know it's been awhile!!

Lots to update y'all on!! :)

I've lost 68.4 pounds!!

I've always wanted to make a tutu and take pics..well I did and with the help of my friend Samantha, my tutu was made :) 
Katrina Ballerina :)

Also I no longer have some hindrances: 
-I went to six problems at all fitting on the rides!
-No longer do I fear I won't fit into a booth at a restaurant...table is not too close to my stomach
-A bath towel I have now fits completely around me...this happened the other day and I got so excited! 
-I cross my legs all the time know the way a lady should sit?! 
-All the jeans are too big!! Dresses, shirts, and even underwear are getting too big!! :) 

Thank y'all for reading!!

Down 60.6 pounds!!

My goal is to lose at least 32 more pounds by the end of this year! Don't worry, I'm not stopping there! Just a goal to achieve by the end of 2012 :)

Also, I can jog a mile straight without stopping! I still can't believe it! I never thought I would be able to do that! God is so so good and reminds me how strong I truly can be!

The 230s...what?!

Hey y'all! Sorry I haven't updated in awhile! I have lots of pics to share and some awesome news! I am in the 230s!! I am still in shock!! Something about these numbers really shows me that I am doing it! So here are a few pics of how my weight has changed recently :)

I am down 59.4 pounds!!! It is all so surreal! I honestly cannot remember when I was in the 230s..I'm guessing middle school like 6th/7th grade! Crazy huh?!

Just some pics :) Enjoy!

I couldn't fit into these jean shorts a few months ago..couldn't even button them and now they fit!

God is so so good! I am so blessed that He is giving me the strength and motivation to become a healthier person. I know God created me for big things..and if my weight loss journey can be a small reflection of that, than I know I am truly doing His will :)

Don't get discouraged!

Hey there! So I recently went on a road trip out to the hill country in Texas. I was slacking a little and not being as conscious of what I was eating (heck, I was on vacation, give me a break!)  I still worked out though, yes at the hotel!! :) Anyway, for a couple weeks really I had been slacking in the food department...even though I would still work out. I gained a few pounds but got back on track yesterday. I'm already back down to my weight in my last post! woo! I received encouragement from my friends to not let this set back keep me down for long. We are all going to have days, maybe weeks when we're not on our A game..but that's okay! As long as you jump right back on track!

Here are some pics from my little vacation and recent one's :) enjoy!

Working on my yoga/stretching! lol

Last but not least, and the one i'm most excited about! I beat my best mile time by 45 seconds...also this is the fastest I've EVER been able to go a mile :) I was lucky if I could finish the mile in middle school in 16-18 minutes!
Thanks for reading and please be encouraged! You too can do this! One day at a time! You didn't become who you are overnight! This will take work, but remember you are so much stronger than you think!! :)

God Bless<3
