i decided i needed to take a break and get myself refocused on what’s important in life: my health, not just physical, but mental as well. being stressed about my weight and how i look has been sending me on an emotional roller coaster, one i dont want to be on anymore. yeah it would be great to lose some weight, but being happy and in a good mind set is detrimental to that success and i wont be going anywhere without it.
ive done a lot of thinking and ive come to the conclusion that my binge eating is a result of 1. stress 2. being an emotional eater 3. not being happy. im working on ways to channel those feelings into something else, like running [which is what i used to do] instead of taking it out on the snack cabinet.
i have to realize that no one is perfect and im going to have my up and downs on my quest to try and reverse some pcos symptoms and get my old body back; even more i have to stop getting down on myself about how i look. beyonce doesnt have a thigh gap and people praise her like she’s god. she has curves and is still beautiful. things like that are something that i need to be thinking about instead of the upcoming victorias secret fashion show.
while i do have a busy schedule at school, im going to do my best to keep on posting consistently to help myself and anyone else whose out there and struggling like me.
as Zig Ziglar said, “Put all excuses aside and remember this: YOU are capable.” im capable and im worth it and im going to crush my goals.
“you dont get what you wish for, you get what you work for”
here’s to working hard today to look and feel better tomorrow. i know everyone wishes they could burn calories by sitting on the couch watching tv or lose 10 pounds over night, but the reality is that you have to work for everything you want to get in life, regardless of what it is. nothing, especially weight loss will be handed to you, and it is one of the hardest obstacles to overcome, so work hard and never back down!

there were a lot of things i couldve done to lead a healthier lifestyle in april that i missed out on. however, its a new month and i know this one will be better and i will definitely start to see the results i want. i know its going to take a lot of hard work..but im not letting anything stop me this time!
today marks the start of month #2. as moth 1 was not very successful for me weight loss wise, im really determined to make a difference throughout may; which is why im very excited that i stayed on track and had a really successful day.
im trying really hard to keep my carb count down and protein up and adding in more exercise to my daily schedule which i did effectively today..
breakfast: egg white omelet with mozzarella; high antioxidant berry drink
lunch: salad with vegetables, grilled chicken, and lite italian dressing
snack: cheese stick
dinner: turkey sandwich
exercise: cardio intervals; arms; [plus im up to 3 sets of 12 pushups]
i know pcos is not going to go away after one successful day, so im going to work hard to keep this pattern going. while weight loss is going to be difficult for me, its important to remember that slow progress is better than no progress
“There will be obstacles, there will be doubters, there will be mistakes. But with hard work, there will be success”
no one’s perfect, which makes success hard to achieve, but with the right work effort and determination, anything is possible.
you cant worry about whats going on around you; you cant control those things. all you can do is control yourself and how you treat your body. so work hard to get the body you want, regardless of what people say or anything that stands in your way, and you will have success.
