Slim Down Saturdays
Hey y'all! Hope everyone is staying warm!
Even though we don't have any snow around these parts...
It's crazy cold here!! My southern self is not handling it well.
So I came across this great linky over at
Yes, I want to lose weight. Yes, I have a goal weight. But my ultimate goal is to be healthy and comfortable in my own skin.
Gains/Loss For This Week:/Total Since Starting:
Well, I haven't officially started. I've been doing all the prep work. And I'm very much a start on Monday type of person. I have also decided to weigh myself and take measurements this, but not to weigh myself again until February. I don't want it to be about the numbers. You see, I've lost the weight before. I lost almost 50 pounds, felt great, looked great, but those lost pounds plus more came back. I need this to be a lifestyle change. So I'm focusing on eating right and moving more.
Positives From The Week:
I have a Pinterest Board where I've pinned a lot of motivational sayings. I call in my No More Excuses Board. You can check it out here. So I made my own Motivational Board and hung it in my kitchen.
Something To Do Better:
I'm working on Less "Fat Talk" Most times I talk about how fat I am or how awful I look in something or even just a mean comment to myself in the mirror. I would NEVER say these things to someone else, so why do I say them to me?
Goal For Next Week:
I'm going to track my foods with My Fitness Pal. I've used it before and it's a great website/app. You can find me over there as rachbv. Feel free to leave your email and we can follow each other!
The word that has been on my mind is LIFESTYLE. This can't just be a quick fix or just about looking good. It's about changing my life.
