It's been way too long and I have a lot to update!

Hey Everyone!

Sorry it's been so long. I kind of got off the weight loss journey and now I'm back on in full force. After losing 72 lbs, then gaining back 60, I decided on weight loss surgery. I got a vertical sleeve gastrectomy on January 27, 2017.

My Starting weight was 282
Current weight is 236.4
Goal #1 199
Goal #2 182
Ultimate goal: 172


This has been one of the best decisions of my life and I wish I had done it sooner.


I also created a YouTube channel :)

It's been over a year!

I haven't updated my blog in over a year :( I mostly keep up on instagram @fluffytohealthy

I've also been avoiding the "update" because it's not a great update. I've gained back 50 lbs. I originally lost 72 and have gained back 50 of what I lost.

Reasons for gaining it back.
-This past year as been a struggle. Spiritually, financially, etc. (I'm out of the trenches now which I'm so thankful to God for.)

-I'm in a comfortable relationship with my boyfriend

-For about 9 months, Dec 2014-August 2015 I was working 2 jobs and doing classes online/in person for my teaching certification. Talk about exhaustion and stress!!

-I had any and every excuse to not work out.

As of this morning I weigh 269lbs. That number scares me and makes me sad. I feel defeated. Some days I'm so encouraged to work out and eat healthy and other days, I'm just so over it! Over the counting of calories, over the feeling of not being able to eat what I want and when I want. (This is a disorder I've had for as long as I can remember, I didn't know there was a name for it- Binge Eating Disorder BED)

I know I have it in me to meet my goals but I'm just on the edge and can't seem to make the full jump back into this lifestyle again.

I know what I want and I'm ready to do it. I want to be healthy, feel better and have a better future. I want to be married soon and I want to feel, look, and be beautiful and healthy on that day. I want babies some day and I'm sure as hell not wanting to carry if I'm this heavy.

My ultimate goal is to lose 100 pounds from my first starting weight, which was 292.2. I want to be under 200lbs and I'm ready to do it! 192 lbs, here I come!!

My feet have been hurting so I only did upper body weight lifting and squats today at the gym.

more poses and trying to jog!

I'm trying to be a more consistent jogger because I'm doing a 5k in February and you have to have a 15 min/mile pace which right now I have a pace of about 15:30 including walking. Trying to jog/walk every day or at least every other day so I can become better :)

Yoga challenges and more!

I'm doing two different yoga challenges on instagram so here are a few of the poses :) 

I'm also trying to be a better runner/jogger so I've started this plan to help. Today was week one, day one. I walked for 2 minutes at a speed of 3.1 on the treadmill and then ran for 1 min at a speed of 5.5 for a total of 21 minutes. Haven't been to the gym in over a week :( felt good to be back to it today doing cardio and weights!!

I love pink...

Looking at all of these pictures, it's clear that I love the color PINK!! 

KEEP GOING!! Have some cheat meals here and there because it's what keeps you sane! 
Moderation is key!
