My Sister's Weightloss Story

Hey everyone! Hope your weekend is good so far! Like I said on the last post , my sister has successfully lost 100 lbs. Here is her story:

People always ask me how did you do it? What are your tips? To be honest I'm not sure what to say. If you really want to lose weight you will do it. A huge help that my sister had recommended was myfitnesspal and it has helped a TON. It makes you automatically accountable for what you eat because it will tell you what you should weigh in five weeks eating and working out the way you are. I still treat myself once in awhile to what I crave so that way I will not binge eat it because I deprived myself. I eat in moderation and when I'm 75 percent full I stop eating. I do not drink soda but I do have a hearty breakfast to get my day started and a light dinner. I try to NEVER eat after six and if I do a light snack like a fiber bar or piece of fruit. I exercise at least four days a week and don't go over four days in a row without working out it's like starting all over! Running and plyometrics has helped me lose so much weight. I am currently at 100 lb weightloss and I would never go back to my previous life style. It's so nice to fit in normal ppl clothing. When I started I was a size 28 and now a 16 :)! Hopefully one day I can be in the single digits but I know if I keep doing this I can achieve anything. My weight loss journey started when my husband deployed and I was in houston for my sons first b day party. My sister made me go on a half mile walk and I was gasping for air and felt like I was dying. I decided if I ever wanted to be an active role in my sons life I had to do something about it NOW. I can now run six miles nonstop and I have really never felt better in my life. I think family support has a lot to do with it. Without them pushing ms and encouraging me I'm not sure i would have been nearly as successful. When I walked into my doctors office and weighed 280 lbs and I told her I had a longterm goal of 160 but mini goals of 20 lbs. She told me let's be realistic you will be lucky if you ever hit 200 lbs on your own. Well here I am 20 lbs from my goal and under 200 naturally. NEVER let anyone put you down and tell you that you are not capable of your dreams and goals. Most of all remember that you are doing it for yourself to have a better life. Dont expect to workout one day and be your ideal weight. Instead of stepping on the scale and saying crap I only lost 0.2 of a lb for that hard workout celebrate because you are that much more closer to where you would like to be. Remember that the 0.2 that you lost will eventually be a lb and then 20 lb and then more. Weightloss takes time just like it took time to put it on. Never give up you can always do it!

So proud!

Well a lot has been going on in my life. I went on a little while without posting. One of the first things first and foremost is I want to give a shout out to my sis. She has successfully lost 100lbs! I am so proud of her. She sent me some pics of her before and afters. She did this all through diet and exercise. She did not do anything unhealthy. Her changing point was that the doctor wanted to do gastric bypass and told her she would never be able to lose the weight. She also told me that she wanted to be healthy for her. Well, here she is 100 lbs. lighter:








Yay sis! I will try to get her to post a snapshot of her diet and exercise plan for those of you out there that are trying to lose some weight (me included).

  Well you know how I went to Disney World to run the Princess Half? Well I got my lil nephew a lil car set that comes with a bag. My sis always puts her shoes on and grabs her purse and says, “bye”….well my nephew decided to do the same thing…lol!


Such a cutie!

This past weekend we had my husband’s brother over to visit before our big move the end of next month to San Francisco.  It was a fun time! We grilled and spent some time at the beach. Here is a pic of his nephew with his beach hat…


Another new thing I did with the hubs is wax my Jeep by hand. It was a tedious 2 hrs. but now my Jeep looks smexy! lol.


I am completely happy with the results.

So with all those tidbits going on my major busy stuff has been school, work, SATs, and Physician Assistant Packet. I decided to retake my SATs since that is a major factor in the program acceptance. I also am putting my application in before I move…which btw is very tedious. With all this being said…a lot of people have been wanting me to blog more often…so I will try to blog at least a few time a week. My next post will be with my sis and her “diet secrets".” Well off to study…ciao!
