Fitness Friday: Weight Loss LIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" target="_blank">



Ok, looking the number of exclamation marks,it is probably obvious that I have ran into some issues. Well 1…I have gained weight WHILE exercising consistently…and before you swear it is muscle mass….IT IS NOT!!!!
From my progress pics of times when I was successful
compared with today, I have a gut again…and I am too mad to take set back pictures. This is what inspired this post….one thing in weight loss journey, well in MY experience has proven to be true:

Anyone who tell you “You basically can eat anything as long as you are burning more calories than you eat,” THEY ARE LYING!!!!
Well not necessarily so, but I guess it will just make you skinny fat. When I was clean eating, eating lean meats, I look lean! I wasn’t at my goal weight, but my body was taking shape! I would look in the mirror in my sports bra and do a little rocking body pump! Now I avoid the mirror all together (again).
I am mad about having to start over AGAIN! I am mad, because I had a formula that WORKED!!! I was eating clean, never hungry, working out, and losing weight!!! WHAT HAPPENED!?!?!?
I got greedy….decided that I would lose more weight faster, by eating LESS…by eating less, I deprived myself, which lead to hunger, feeling hunger lead to over eating, over eating lead to…..eating whatever was in sight, eating whatever was in sight lead to a reappearing gut!!
On the plus side I can say that I am still working out, so I am still physically fit (sort of)…I can run for a whooping 20 minutes now!!! that is major for me lol, so in order to get back on track all I have to do is get my diet in order.
I just bought Jillian Micheals 30 day Shread, because I mentally feel like I can take it on, and with proper dieting, I hope that I can lose the 20 pounds in 30 days as advertised. I am still doing T25, because I love Beta round it just does not have as high of a calorie burn as I would like.
So I am starting over…clean eating on Monday…AGAIN! I am so mad…my new motto is “I workout like a beast….why eat like a pig”… it truly says something about your diet/eating habits when you gain weight WHILE working out…smh.






  1. Don't beat yourself up!
    You know better, so you can do better!
    The ONLY time I've ever been able to eat what I wanted was when I was eating 1000-1200 calories per day. I lost weight and ate like garbage, but I was always starving and miserable.
    I think you're going about it the right way.
    You can do it!

  2. Omg Shay, I needed this post! I'm right there with you! I FEEL flabbier and I know I look flabbier than I did say in November because I was only working out sporadically and maintaining by jumping on the scale often and cutting back here and there. I'm so glad you linked up, I don't want you to stay mad, just get re-motivated and get it back! We got this!!!!

  3. Don't beat yourself up about it. What's done is done, all that matters now is what changes you will make for the future. When it gets hard remember what starting over feels like.
    Great post and you can do this girl :-)
