“Out With the Old, In With the New”… Mama has got to lose some weight!

 So, I have a confession! As I look at pictures at pictures from last year, I’ve realized I’ve gained 25lbs since last summer! **Que the violins** 

What hurts the most is that, I lost 60lbs only to gain back almost half of that **Again que the violins**

While it’s my goal to be fabulous no matter what size I am, I must get my eating habits under control! Part of the problem is my lifestyle! I’m always on the go and I don’t effectively plan so I ended up eating all the wrong things and not exercising effectively! Well all that is going to change starting today! While you are reading this, I will be at the gym working with my new trainer. I wil be working on creating a new me and leaving the old me behind and I will need you guys support! It’s time to get rid of these extra pounds! I was able to do it before and I’m sure I will be able to do it again but this time permanently! I plan on eliminating a lot of high fat foods and replacing them with vegetables and fruits! I will keep  you guys updated on my weekly progress! It’s time to get back in my skinny (ok not skinny but smaller) clothes…

A little humor!!

I will be working out with Darryl Norwood over at B-Fit! Stay tuned!
