My Weight Loss Journey Continues...

I am proud to say that I have been keep, keep, keeping on at the gym. I have been going to my personal training sessions two times a week and mostly keeping up with my cardio on my days at home.

I had another measurement check-in last week and lost another 4 1/4 inches with the biggest loss of 1 1/2 inches being in my hips! That brings my total inches lost to 18 1/4 inches since February. 

I am definitely noticing that all of my clothes are fitting better and some are even quite loose. Even with all those inches lost I still haven't gone down a pants size yet... but I do think I am close. What does that say? I'm not really sure but I think it says that I was STUFFED in my pants before, lol :)

I can tell that I am still gaining muscle especially in my legs and thighs. I feel stronger which I have to say is a very nice feeling! 

I am definitely struggling in the eating department though. I have only lost about one lb. since last I checked in with you and my weight seem to be stuck kind of bouncing up and down around the same five lbs. which is SUPER frustrating. I think the downward spiral really started when we went on vacation in late May. 

I have been not only neglectful to the blog as of late but also in keeping up with tracking my calories on

So, to jump start my weight loss my husband and I both started on a 21 day Sugar detox. Basically, it means we are eating meat and veggies and THAT.IS.IT. No breads, pastas, beans, potatoes, fruit, dairy, or anything else that remotely tastes good! We are on day 7 and all I can say is that I want a cupcake I am really hungry! I will give a full report on the detox when we finish up in about two weeks!

I am a good American and I want it  yesterday now!I really am a bit frustrated that I haven't gotten farther than I have in the five months that I have been consciously trying to loss weight but I am not giving up and I am going to keep fighting until I win!


  1. I never heard about 21 Day Sugar Detox, but it's sound great. I can't wait to see your 21 Day Sugar Detox result.Will come back to see your update. I am tired of planning about what to eat everyday, i slip up on my diet quite often. So I decided to start over a 40-days water fasting today to have a kick start on a new diet. I don't know how to face this 40-days journey, but i will blog about them to keep motivated. All the best to you too!

  8. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of

    daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
