90 days down-12 weeks of awareness!

Today marks 90 days since I started this blog and regained my life. My life has truly changed and it does not include fat girl. She is gone for good never to return.

My vision for the future is living life with no guilt, fear, self-hatred, confusion, and despair about my body. This vision has been a longtime in the making and I am proud to be at this point in my life.

For 12 weeks I have become aware of myself and what is needed for me to be successful :

Week 1. Realizing my life was unhealthy and out of control.
Week 2. Realizing that being overweight is not acceptable.
Week 3. Learning to put myself first 100% of the time.
Week 4. Make a healthy plan and sticking with it for the rest of my life.
Week 5. Start exercising and pushing myself to my body max.
Week 6. Start a food boundary list and sticking with for the rest of life.
Week 7. Not allowing myself to get distracted or justifying my wrongs.
Week 8. Exploring boredom and the connection with food.
Week 9. Facing my "binging behavior" and correcting it.
Week 10. Focusing on my body in a positive way.
Week 11. Locking doors behind me and tossing the key out.
Week 12. This week is about reflecting and enjoying my new life.

So looking forward: My plan is to continue to shake up my workout routine by adding more challenging workouts like, yoga boot camp, bikram yoga-heat, capoeira, rock climbing, free-styling running, and boot camp swimming. I feel excited for the next 12 weeks. There is so much more for me to explore about myself.

Body fat: down 13% since July 29th and down 3 dress sizes


  1. WOW. You have accomplished so much in the last 12 weeks! Congrats!

  2. wow I liked this breakdown of awareness. I cant remember when things changed for me along the way. But something in me just realized what harm I was doing to myself and I stopped. Great job! Keep up the good work!
