I can’t believe that almost ten months have passed since my last post! 2014 has been such a good year so far, and I’m here to tell you a little about why it was so positive (cue the applause from all the sistas who have been waiting to read this).
In September, I posted a success on Instagram. It was a comparison photo of me from May/September, and marked a 50lb weight loss. Several of you wanted details, and I’m getting to that now. This is going to require several posts where I’ll give more specifics, but this should help encourage you or inspire you if you’re feeling ready to accept a lifestyle change. I’ll stick mostly to facts now, and get into the rest in other posts.
- I used Livestrong to track my caloric intake (smartphone app or computer)
- Breakfast every single day
- Morning snack
- Afternoon snack
- Bedtime snack
- Cut soda (even diet soda)
- Increased water intake (not nearly enough, but hey…anything is better than nothing!)
