How To Crawl Your Way Back Up On the Wagon!

It has been quite some time since posted a healthy living update so i thought ‘why not!?’  So if you recall I started my healthy lifestyle in December 2014 weighing in at a nice and solid 192 pounds.  As of July 4 I weighed in at my lowest weight (in a very long time) of 167 pounds.

But, as most of you are aware Evelina and I left for Florida around the middle of July and decided to extend our holiday a little longer by visiting Cherry Grove, SC for a couple of trips.  And while on vaca I added a few pounds.  Sad news.  Mostly I attribute the weight gain to too many sodas (I love Dr. Pepper, especially ice-cold on hot days!) and an addiction to Boulineau’s fried chicken, mashed potatoes, corn and mac n cheese!  I swear they have the best fried chicken you will ever, and i mean, ever eat in your life!  Usually I would have the fried okra (my fave) but for some strange reason they did not have it all week.  Therefore, i substituted mac n cheese.

Anywho, I located a few of the el bees I lost over the last few months!! . Last week I weighed in at 176 and with a return to glory I dropped 1.2 pounds.  It is nice to be back on track but I will admit unhealthy food tastes much better in general.  Just sayin…

However, the food does not taste good enough for me to continue eating in that fashion, as I appreciate my health much more than crap food.

I have set a brand new challenge for myself.  I want to eat healthy and weigh in at 165 lbs. by September 30.  When i hit this goal i will officially weigh what I weighed in high school, which was a very, very long time ago…in a galaxy far, far away…

You can review my past Healthy Eating Plan and maybe start eating a little healthier yourself.  Combine that with walking 5 minutes per day and you might be making this same type post in 8 months!!

  1. Way to go! And good luck in your journey. I started healthy eating over a year now plus walking to and fro college most days. I came down from a 62kg to a 52.5kg now which is also my highschool weight. 🙂

  2. What a great loss, I congratulate you. I know how hard it is to shift the weight. I’m off on holiday next week and I’m about 30lbs heavier than I want to be in a bikini so I might join you in a spot of healthy living when I get back!
