New focus and a big thank you.

For the past 6 to 8 months I have been maintaining my weight. I have been comfortable being 198 Lbs for some time but I really want to start focusing on losing weight again. I mean, I am very happy that I have maintained for this long without going back to gaining a lot of weight. I really want to get out of the 190's. My goal weight is about 175 pounds. The reason for that is because then I will be considered "normal" in the eyes of the BMI chart. I don't want to see overweight or obese anymore. I know some of you may think that just because the BMI chart says that you shouldn't believe it. Well, I'm sick of seeing those words. I have seen them my whole life. I want to be done with that and never consider myself either obese or overweight again.

In a month my second oldest brother is getting married. Obviously, I'm a bridesmaid and I want to lose about 5-8 pounds before his wedding on June 4th. Then in October, my cousin is getting married out in Colorado and I asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding as well. I want to be in the 180's by then. I know it is possible. I have been trying to focus on working out, getting my HR up and eating better while watching portions. I think portion control is my weak spot when it comes to weight loss. It's a struggle but I just need to keep working at it.

Overall, I am very happy with what I have accomplished in over a year since starting my life changing journey. I have inspired people to start running, lose weight, eat better and just take better care of themselves. It's an honor to be apart of others LCJ and I want to continue to thank all the blogger's out there that have came into my life and inspired me to keep going. I also want to thank my many friends and family members who've encouraged me to never give up and always believe in myself. You know who you are and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.


  1. Lovely post! I was literally where you were when it came to stalling for a few months when I still had 15-20 lbs to go! It's great to practice maintenance though and also let our body get used to our new size.

    Never let someone else dictate what size you are! The most important thing is YOU finding your happy weight :) I have a wedding end of June that I'm aiming to look fab to too!

    Both of us will be fabulous!!! :) GOOD LUCK

  2. Hey molz!! Your doing an amazing job and we need to work out together like old days. I'm very proud of you and I'm behind you all the way. We have both been fighting this weight control thing for some time now and you know I'm always down for anything. Love you and if you need anything you know where I'm at :)


  3. That's a great goal and I know you can do it.
