****UPDATE**** On my Weight Loss Journey

Okay, Okay,Okay so awesome news!!!

I have officially lost 4 pounds in two weeks, and that's good 2 pounds a week is healthy.

Stats Check em' out:

Starting Weight: 171

Current Weight: 167

Okay, what am I doing you asked, Eating 5 times a day, but like they say small portions ( Yes, I have had some weak moments, but as much as I wanted too I did not give in), and I work out once if not twice a day, some of ya may not have that kind of time, but my job has a gym in the building so I go at lunch time, then after work before I get my evening started.

I don't eat after 8pm, and I chose 8pm because I usually don't get in the bed until about 11pm/midnight. Then when it comes to eating my cousin is like the health GURU of the Family, so I go to her for different recipes and she always come thru for me.

She has introduced me to Spaghetti squash which is where instead of using pasta for the noodles, we use this squash that is actually called "Spaghetti Squash" it strings up like noodles and use those for the noodles instead, You boil it for about 30 to 45 mins, then cut it open and scrap the insides out. Cook the meat as you would normally do and add whatever you add to make your spaghetti, I use lean Turkey meat, and turkey eckridge sausage and what ever kind of sauce I'm in the mood for at the moment.

Now you may frown your face up, but please try it and I promise you won't be disappointed.

She also introduced me to buttermilk squash Mac-n-cheese, sounds nasty well, NOPE it's not it's actually good, I never thought that I would be eating any of these things, so when they say it's a life style change yes, it's a lifestyle change, I find myself shopping for more and more things that I have never heard of before, and trying new things, that are sooooo delicious.

She also introduced me to curry which is nothing new but it's an alternative way that she makes it that is soooo healthy and did I add delicious, well I don't have the recipe yet, but as soon as I do I will be sure to share it with you.

Any who, so I have been going strong for 2 weeks now, and I'm very excited at the end of every month I will be putting update pictures up, so you can see my progress as well and read about it.

I hope that I inspire and encourage you to want to loose weight and want to be healthy and a better you in the process of my Journey, I will make sure I try my best to give you step by step details on my journey.

I am be also giving great work out tips, and recipes, and ect. remember I am not a nutritionist nor and personal trainer, all the things that I share will come from extensive research, questions asked and experience.

Love ya most,
