I am trying to be consistent again with posting so expect a new post at least once a week.
Ok so I have been living in Charlotte for 2 months now and although my progress has been slow I am still making progress. I do not know my current weight because I do not own a scale but the last time I weighed myself at my sisters house I was 295. That's a big jump from the 276 I was back in April and close to the 317 I was last year. I hate that I let myself gain 20 pounds back but I know how it happened and I am not letting it happen anymore.

My move to Charlotte was to have a better life for me and daughters and to be closer to my sisters. I was supposed to move years ago but always chickened out when it was time to start planning for it. Welp I didn't chicken out this time and the last week of June I got on the road to a better life.

It was a breeze to plan everything, but I was still nervous. I've mentioned many times to people that this healthy journey has changed my mindset and I want to help others along their healthy journey. Becoming a certified personal trainer may be in my future, but I want to get myself in the best space possible to properly help others. I have a lot of people that reach out to me for tips and help and I think this might be a great career change for me. I understand what it is like to be over 300 pounds and trying to fight your way to a healthier body. I'll keep you guys posted on that going forward.
Anywhooooo back to my class!

Being that this has never happened, I definitely think it is because I have my Twershop tomorrow, a 5k next Saturday, I'm going to Vegas the following week, and One other thing I am not announcing yet. These are all new things that I am doing and I am soooo excited about all of them, but nervous at the same time.

I've been counting calories since I starting my journey but I have been having trouble with the amount of calories I should hit each day. Now in the beginning my goal was 1200 each day, but I found that I some times would get hungry and that lead me to making bad choices by the end of the day. The problem I found is that I was focused more on calories than the nutrients in the calories. That is why I am now counting my macronutrients versus my calories.
