Happy Friday! I wanted to start of this post by welcoming my new subscribers to Beautifully Seaside! I’m working on fun campaigns designed especially for you with content you will not see here on my blog. Look for those newsletters beginning next week! Welcome and thank you for subscribing! XO
I feel like I need accountability in losing the last 10 pounds of my weight goal. I’m a numbers person, so having a goal weight inspires me a great deal. I got such a great response when I shared, How I lost 12 Pounds and many of you reached out and wanted to hear more about how I was able to lose the weight. I totally get that, because hearing other success stories inspires me as well. So here it goes! Starting today, Friday, May 5th, I’m beginning the next phase of my weight loss journey! And I will do that by staying away from junk food- which includes, chips, icecream, fried food, french fries, candy, cookies, and cake, oh and let’s not forget donuts! These are a no-no and will not help me to lose 10 pounds.
Some things I will do are- eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, drink plenty of water, and add healthy proteins to my diet (such as nuts, beans, and lean meat). I do enjoy my one cup of decaf in the morning with very light creamer.
I feel so much better when I eat healthy. Junk food does not agree with me and I proclaim that I will finally understand that and stay away from foods that are unhealthy for me to consume. I don’t want to be a slave to junk food anymore and always feel like I have to finish the whole bag of chips in one sitting. With hard work on my part and the Lord’s mercy, I decree and declare new healthy eating habits! Amen!
Here are my fitness goals going into the summer: workout 6 days a week, tone arms with weights, do lunges at least 3 times a week. I’ve done this before and could see a huge difference!
Please share you thoughts in the comments below, so that we can encourage each other. If you have found success in weight loss, please share the details of how you did it! I would love to hear from you. Thank you! XO, Desiree
By the way, one of the rewards from me losing the 12 pounds was that my clothes fit better and I wanted to share some styles below that I either purchased or made my wishlist. Scroll through below to shop my favorite weightloss celebration styles, including this gorgeous one shoulder ruffle white top that I’ll be wearing all summer long! I ordered it in a size 2. Speaking of that top, I’m really loving Madewell lately! They have so many pretty styles for summer here, here, and here.
