I worked a busy father’s day restaurant shift and at the end the girl who left on maternity leave about a month after I started came up to me and asked if I was the food runner she thought I was. She was confused bc I “had lost a ton of weight.” WHAT A GREAT FEELING!!!! #weightlossjourney
I went on my first date in 4 years yesterday. My biggest problem? All of my old clothes are too big on me!! I spend all my time in work clothes or workout clothes or sweats that when I had to actually look ok I realized how big everything has gotten! Guess I need to go shopping 🤷🏼♀️ also the guy was an absolute doll to me 😍 #weightlossjourney#firstdate#calfpasturebeach#norwalkct
Guys, the universe got me. Okay, well, Chili’s got me bc everything I ever order there is always wrong and I should give up, but after working there for 4 years, you start to enjoy the food (you also enjoy the food so much that you gain 40 pounds lol.) BUT c’mon now, if the kid hadn’t had an attitude on the phone I wouldn’t have checked these til I got home.
ALSO I KNOW I SHOULDNT EAT THIS but this week I went back on anxiety meds and today I signed back up for therapy and all I want to do tonight is eat junk and watch a sad movie 🤷🏼♀️ Side note: crispy chicken tacos got taken off the menu 4 years ago but people still insist on having them and they are the bane of an employees existence.

So I’m one of those impulse buyers 🤷🏼♀️Saw this in the store a few shopping trips ago and felt like I needed to try it but then I got it home and had no intention of eating it 😂 Didn’t have anything made for lunch today so I tried this and was surprised at how good it was!! 100% healthy? Prob not, but better than fast food fries! #weighossjourney#boca#vegetarian
My Fitbit categorized my anxiety attack as an outdoor bike exercise 🤷🏼♀️ Ugh my anxiety has been so bad that I haven’t made it to workout yesterday or today. I’m pushing myself tomorrow but I’m already having anxiety about that 🤦🏼♀️
How do y’all deal with terrible self image days?? I can’t seem to get past it and I’m repulsed with how I look 😭
This had nothing to do with people who weigh more!!! It’s all about my body and I just feel like there’s no change and I hate how I look.
I bought this shirt with a pair of workout leggings back in July of 2017 as a first goal outfit. I’ve been wearing the leggings but I keep trying this on and always hate it. Today I liked how it looked!! And I co-taught 1/3 of the workout class so I had to stand in the front of the room and be comfortable! My next goal is to look better in this and be able to fit into another shirt I have that is a medium too but is super tight. #weightlossjourney#fitnessmotivation#goalshirt#jazzercise#dancingmywaytofit
My brother, my best friend, my everything left this morning for the next 5 months to work on the west coast. My mom picked me up at 11:45 last night, ran an errand, then we left for the airport at 1. Got home this morning at 7:15. I took an hour nap and then got up and got to my workout class! Didn’t have the best form or stamina but I made it through and got a workout in on minimal sleep! #dancingmywaytofit#weightlossjourney#fitnessmotivation#jazzercise
*SNUG not SMUG lol. I first started my weight loss journey in July of last year. I had to hole punch new holes in my work belt bc one notch was too big and one was too small. Fell off the journey a couple months after while being in the middle planning a move and losing my job, but I got back on and today I was able to use this notch! I've been using the next one up from the hole punch spot and noticed about two weeks ago that it was getting a little loose but when I tried to use the next one, I had a wild muffin top😂 Today I had to use this notch bc the previous was too loose! So happy!! #weightlossjourney#beltmeasuring#iwishisawthechange
Do you ever just wake up RAVENOUS??? I woke up, worked out, and came home suuuper hungry! Not the healthiest meal but I didn't use any oils or butter and it's not fried so I'll take that as my win! Plus at this point it's 1130 so I'll probably have it as brunch and then do a shake between now and dinner at 930/10 (thanks work!)
Potatoes tossed in paprika, roasted red pepper, Cajun, and garlic powder cooked up with some onions, asparagus, and morning star "bacon"! #vegetarian#weightlossjourney#brunch#imSTARVING
I don't feel like I see really any difference besides maybe one thing but my mom insists I look smaller now. First one was last July, second was today. I recreated what I remembered of the pose so the comparison would be close. I have a new bathing suit top bc the other one was too big this summer. Same bottoms but they were super tight last year and fit now. Bleh, I really expected to see a huge difference but nothing 🤷🏼♀️#lastsummervsnow#weightlossjourney#riverlife#beforeandafter#11monthdifference
As class started, I locked the door, looked at this view, and left to go to work.
Really, it was my fault. I knew that work should have scheduled me for 9 but they didn't, and they didn't ask me to come in early so I said nothing in hopes of being able to workout before work. Well, they asked me to come in early on my way to working out 😩 I worked the front desk bc I was scheduled today today, then I locked up, and left for work. Thankfully I had to run around all day bc we were busy for the holiday. One occasional perk of restaurant work. And then my GM bought us all pizza 🤷🏼♀️ oh well, better luck tomorrow!
So I've never had arm strength- couldn't do a push up and I moved all furniture w my feet bc my legs were strong. Wanna talk about #nsv or non measurement victories? Today I moved my AC from my basement to my bedroom on the second floor. I could barley move it across the room last summer! I felt like I hadn't been making any progress and I'm so happy! #weightlossjourney#armgains#jazzercise
Starting my day off right and ending it right with these two! I taught two routines with my instructor this morning and one of the woman in class said she'd come to my class if I get certified! My body is sore af (8 classes in 7 days) and mentally I want to get to class in the morning but physically I feel like I need a rest day 😩it's hard when you're in love with something that pushes all your muscles to their hardest! #jazzercise#nationalwineday#restdayornah#soreaf#dancingmywaytofit#weightlossjourney
