christy_riddle ******I'm wearing a modified sports bra due to a bad sunburn****** My life has been flipped upside down since January. I've been trying to hold everything together, but I felt more and more out of control. My husband went to trade school from Jan-Mar to be a truck driver. He started his new job as an over the road truck driver in April leaving me home alone all the time. I ended up losing my job 1 week after he started his. I have been home alone all the time bored & scared. I have tried since April to get a job in my field & have not found one in 4 months. I finally took a job in town that pays pennies, but it's a job & gives me something to do with my alone time. Money is still tight & my life is still out of control.
Health & weight loss has been the furthest thing from my mind, especially the last 2 months. Something then clicked in my head that I have wasted these past 4-6 months when I could have focused on myself & my health. I'm retaking control of my health & giving control of my life back to God because let's be truthful He does a better job with the control than I do! I'm scared to think how much I've gained in the past 8 months, but I need to face what I've done to myself.
HW 392.5 Lowest weight ever 304
Restarting weight from this morning: 364.0
Goals️ 1: 319 2: 299 3: 249 4: 199 5: 165
I've never followed a plan & I'm not going to now, so don't push your shakeology, advocare, wraps, etc on me please. I've lost 89 pounds on my own before by eating less & moving more, & that's what I am going to do again. I'll fail at times & at times I'll triumph, but this my journey so it won't be a smooth one because nothing in my life is ever smooth.
I want to be truthful & transparent as possible & for my main reason: I have no one here in person for accountability. I know very few people in my area & none of them are on a weight loss journey. I don't have family or friends here. I'll go to the gym at different times each day due to work, so I don't see the same people there to be a gym buddy.
I need people here to help me. Encourage me. Yell at me for not eating healthy or working out. I'll be there for you, too.

chinda_fit_land After a long 12hrs at work today I still managed to get some work in!! At first I was a little disappointed at my 3 mile time but realized I had 2 stop lights to stop for! Ran to a friends house cuz that's where the fambam was for dinner with friends. I missed out on dinner but glad I don't miss out on my run! It was easier to just not do it but that would b me failing myself! #noexcusemom #noexcuses #fitfam #fitmom #fitworkingworkingmom #justdoit #run #cardioday #tomtom #watch #myweightloss #myweightlossjourney 6h

fat2fababby Here lately, I feel like I've been progressing very little. I've been kind of down on myself for not hitting all of my goals or for messing up here or there. But today, I saw a friend whom I haven't seen since May. He saw me and said "have you been working out?" BEST. FEELING. EVER. It feels so good to know that all of my hard work is not in vain and that I'm doing something RIGHT. #POSITIVITY #HARDWORK #Dedication #fitfam #fitspo #fitspiration #inspiration #futureafterpicture #weightloss #myweightloss #weightlossjourney #myweightlossjourney #cheatclean #cleaneating #eatclean #traindirty 8h

gotherbalife This Texas trail was no joke. It was a triple whammy between the trail, the heat, and humidity. Nonetheless, I completed it and was soaking wet in sweat. I haven't felt this defeated and accomplished at the same time in quite a while. #lovethis #herbalife #herbalife24 #lovetexas #texas #dallas #imcomingback #fitfam #fitspo #fitness #trails #nature #naturehike #naturewalk #hike #hiking #texastrails #itspossible #doubletap #motivation #inspiration #dedication #results #myjourney #myweightloss #downfortypounds #nevergiveup #thestruggleisreal 9h
