Okay so here goes nothing…not only will this blog be my beauty blog but I’ve decided it’s going to be my weight loss blog as well! It’s time I took control of my life and did something. I’m tired of being unhappy with myself, depressed and a hermit who hides in her home because she’s uncomfortable being out (lame I know). Now don’t get me wrong I’m not gi-normous (as I like to say) but I need to lose about 50lbs.
I previously lost over 60lbs two years ago while living with my parents after a crappy divorce. Some of the weight loss was due to the stress and emotional roller coaster I was on from the divorce but I also decided to see a weight loss MD and get put on prescription diet pills. Boy oh boy when I first went on those pills I dropped it like it’s hot!! I was on a very strict, very healthy, very expensive diet! I was living with my parents so I really didn’t have anything to pay for so I was able to afford all those things. That’s not so much the case now.
I now own my own home, which I worked VERY hard to get, so my money isn’t so readily available! I’ve got a mortgage, electric, water and other bills to pay for by myself which can really limit what I can and cannot buy. So I’m putting myself not only on a weight loss plan (I’m currently figuring it out!) but also a budget, with the help of my dear sweet boyfriend of course so I can afford the healthier foods!
So I will now be blogging, at least I hope to keep this up, about my journey, my ups and downs and possibly recipes and words of encouragement for anyone else out there that might need it. I will also post beauty related stuff on here too so don’t freak out if you see a healthy food recipe then a video on hair products!! J That’s just how I roll!
Any kind of support or words of encouragement would be greatly appreciated! If you’re currently trying to lose weight then let’s encourage each other!
I have four ways you can communicate with me: 1. Is on here of course; 2. My Facebook Fanpage: Ohh For the Love of Makeup (if you subscribe to my youtube videos you will find the link) 3. My email: firstname.lastname@example.org and 4. Twitter (which I’ve just started getting back into!) @candyland1081.
I’m crossing my fingers that I can accomplish my goal and stop being a hermit!
YOU CAN HAVE RESULTS OR EXCUSES…NOT BOTH
