I'm a 23 year old girl trying to eat healthier, get in shape, and overall lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle FOREVER.
I post mainly about health and fitness, but sometimes I slip in anxiety problems, rants, verses, and funny stuff.
I ❤ Jesus.
God bless y'all!

So, here’s an update on my life and where I’ve been.
A couple months ago, I started a new full time job as an Admissions clerk at a hospital. I’ve been very busy with that, as well as starting school a couple weeks ago. Because my school hardly has any night classes, all 4 of mine are online. So it’s been hectic.
I’m trying to make a weekly schedule to follow so I can still fit in the gym after work and still get all my school stuff finished, and it worked out the first half of last week. The second half of the week my grandpa was in the hospital basically bleeding out (long story) so I spent every day driving to where he was and spending my time there.
It’s frustrating to know I’ve had this blog about 5 years, and I still don’t have a success story. It’s embarrassing, really. I did lose, at one time, down from 250ish to 208, and it was awesome. And on that note, I didn’t realize how much thinner I had gotten when I was at 208 until I gained back up. Now I look back at pictures, and I hate that I let myself gain up, and I hate that I didn’t realize how much better I felt and looked.
I gained up to 274, and now I’m down to between 258-262. I’ve been stuck here for months, doing well for a few days and losing, then screwing up and gaining back to 262.
It’s crazy to think I’ve been working at this for 5 years (well, longer really, that’s just when I start my tumblr) and still haven’t achieved much of anything. It’s such a rollercoaster. But it’s also irritating, because I have learned so much, yet I’m still like this.
There are other factors, though, such as my anxiety/depression medicine. My doctor told me awhile back that it causes the average person to gain 5 pounds a month, and it screws up your metabolism. So I am battling that weight gain every month. I’m hoping to cut my dose in half soon, which I have done before. He also put me on an antidepressant that helps me sleep at night + helps with weight loss, so hopefully that’ll help.
I’m hoping this new schedule thing will really help, plus taking healthy lunches to work has been great. I just need to focus on evenings.
And on another side note, I’m hoping to be going to Greece next summer, and I definitely don’t want to be the stereotypical fat American.
So wish me luck!@2 weeks ago with 2 notes
