SO SORE! (Update #1)

          Hello everyone!
          This is my first weekly update on my weight loss progress. I'm not sure how exactly I want to format these, but I'll figure it out, if anyone has any suggestions, leave them in the comments below! Enough with the semantics, As you can tell from the title of this post, I'm very sore! I wasn't reaching the weight goals I wanted to, so kicked up my workout a bit. Im running/ walking on the treadmill for the first 30 minutes then doing weight machines for at least 15 minutes. Hopefully I'll get past this sore spot soon enough.

          I do have to give you a bit of bad news, I did go up a little in my weight this week, because I slacked on going to the gym, and keeping track of what I was eating. But this is the mark of a new week, and I know I am going to do better this week, because I'm paying attention to what I'm eating, and making sure I'm at the gym. And, I'm going to update more, because thats the only way I'll keep myself consistent and totally honest.

Set-Backs, and Mess-ups

            First, I have to apologize for not posting since the 13th! I'm not going to make any excuses, because I had plenty of time to write, but I just didn't, and obviously everyone messes up and has imperfections, but it's how you use those imperfections to your benefit to reach your goal. Which is why I have written out a schedule, or better called, a to-do list for each day. I have to get all the items done on the list, before doing the things that I want to do, that way I'm sure everything is done, and I don't have to worry about those tasks during the day because I know that they are already done, or will be before I go to sleep.
          Iv'e come to the realization that if I want this blog to really be what I hope it to, it requires total honesty from me, which is a scary notion, but it's what Iv'e committed to, and therefor have to follow through with it. So if I have a bad day, I'll post about it. Because this isn't about me going through this perfect weight loss with no problems or set backs, because that is going to happen, but no one is perfect and its how I react to those set backs that define me as a person, and a blogger.

Will you be my Valentine?

After Yesterday's gut spilling, I though I would post a simple outfit of the day. My day consisted of church, homework, and going to the gym. Although It was oh-so-thrilling, I would much prefer spending the day shopping, or doing something not involving school work.

Shirt- Asos
Vest- Forever21
Color Block Skirt- Forever21
Shoes- Style369
Feather Necklace- Urban Outfitters
Charm Necklace- Vintage

Yes, I know it's not Valentines day yet, but while out today everyone told me they loved my valentines outfit (which wasn't planed), and since it's 2 days away, I figured why not put it up today? I absolutely adore this shirt from Asos curve, and paired with the skirt and faux fur boots (considering there's about 2 feet of snow outside) I thought it was perfect! 

With Love,

Change is for the Better

          Iv'e always been a big girl, and by big girl, I mean heavier than everyone around me. And I have always had not just a love for clothing, but a fascination and attraction to all things related. Which is why this blog is here. Recently I have made a change in who I am, and how I view my self. Iv'e realized, Fashion is about being confident in what you put on, and not being afraid of what people will say. Not about what I should wear to impress other people, or what I shouldn't wear because I'm to fat. 
          Being a big girl who invests time in to fashion, is hard. Im not able to walk into any store and pick something that will fit me, a foreign concept which I have not had the luxury of experiencing. Before you start to think I'm writing this to complain about something I could have changed years ago, I want to explain why I'm writing this. I have come very close to being very sick, because I am carrying  extra weight around on my body. 
          I am done being unhealthy and not confident about who I am. If I don't change who I am now, My life will be cut short, and I will probably spend my whole life trying to reach a standard, that I would never reach. This change isn't about my outer appearance, but about being a healthier, happier version of who I already am. 
          A lot of plus size fashion bloggers will say that they love their body and are confident with how they look, and I do love who I am. But along with becoming healthier, I truly am not happy with the way I look, I don't want to be afraid of how people will perceive me because of my weight, or whether I need fix my clothing because the fat on my back is showing. 
        Starting today, I will be at the gym 5 days a week for at least an hour. I will be eating all organic and healthy foods, and tracking what I eat, in order to see the flaws in my diet. And I will continue to peruse my love for fashion. I am going to post twice a week, one post will be a fashion post, and one will be about my progress in becoming healthier.
         If your still reading this, and wondering what the purpose of this post is, it is because I need to make a public commitment to my self and to all of you. I have had similar conversasions with myself before, and not followed through. If this information is public, it will force me to uphold this change, and not only be honest with my self, but with all of you. 
         It is so exciting to me that I will have a record of these changes and I will be able to look back and see how I have changed. And anyone who wants to follow my progress, please do it, and keep me on track! I am so excited to make this change and I hope you enjoy seeing my progress, and maybe I will inspire one of you to do it with me.

With love,
