So as you know…I’ve been trying to take off that extra poundage I’ve found lately.
The month of August has been a success.
I’ve lost 4 pounds.
I know that doesn’t seem like a lot. But for a person with my BMI it is!
I had been unhappy with how little I’ve lost.
Until people started to ask: “have you lost weight?”
I would just brush it off…and say not really.
Come on Natasha- 4 pounds is really good!
A healthy BMI for a female of my height:
Even with the extra poundage.. I was at a healthy BMI of 23.9
With four pounds lost I am now at:
Looking for your BMI:
They say that healthy weight loss is between 1-2 pounds a week.
I did 1 pound a week.
That’s without exercise- I’ve only been watching what I’ve been eating lately.

Check out the difference 4 pounds makes!
You can really notice the weight loss in my face.
But if I want my toned arms/legs/ and butt back…
I need to get my butt in gear- and exercise!
I need to listen to my own advice and MAKE THE TIME!
So Let’s check in at the end of September and let’s see where I am there!
How is your fitness journey going?!
I would love to hear! 🙂

That’s a pretty inspirational story!
Weight management is so key to a healthy life! I once said there would never be a day were I was under a size 9! Now here I am 9 years later a size 8 and the same weight I was in highschool. The important note in that is that I was 256 lbs at one point 6 years ago and I’ve been struggling ever since! But now I’ve lost so much weight in the last 2 months! When I see stories like yours it just makes me so happy!!! You go girl, you’ve got this!!!
Wow so inspirational!! I absolutely love hearing success stories- is there anything more motivational?! This is actually my second bout at it. I lost 30 pounds before, and gained about 15 back. I’m looking to just lose about ten of it. I hope you’ll stay along with me and offer motivation!! Cause I need it again- and you got it in spades 🙂
Ill have to research catalyst. I’ve toned before with P90x and loved the results !

It’s hard to feel good when your just looking at the numbers. But I definitely felt good when I seen it in comparison shots and through other peoples perspectives! I guess…its true the scale is evil! 😉
Yes I think it’s totally true that scales are evil!!! Haha!
Great job, hun!!! I have definitely been able to tell that you are losing weight from your posts on IG! You look fab!!!
aww yay! that’s exciting and very encouraging. thanks babe!
You should be proud. Weight loss is not easy…speaking as someone who has struggled with this for years I know how you feel. You look great!
aww thanks so much for the encouragement! I’ve struggled too- I take it off…just to put it back on! But just because I fall alot doesn’t mean I can’t pick myself up 🙂
That’s right 🙂
What have you been doing ?please share I plan to be goin on the gm diet in sept .
No diets or gimmicks. I watch my portions and caloric intake. I also eat every three to four hours to make sure I dont get hungry and overeat! My other post: “how to eat and lose weight” goes into more detail. But if you have any questions. Just ask 🙂
You look great doll! 4lbs is an amazing accomplishment! I’ve been starting to make workout videos on my YouTube channel for for toning. They are really simple and effective and best part is you can do them at home with out any equipment! I’ll post the link below. Can’t wait to see your September results!
4 pounds is a BIG deal! Keep going at it and keep exercising. I lost 54lb. and that took me about 1 year and 6 months! It’s not impossible to achieve your goal you just gotta keep pushing, you will get there at your own time. Great job!
I’ve done it once, I can do it again! I lost 30 pounds before; I gained some of it back and I’m just working on taking that number back down 😉 thanks for the love and encouragement babes!!
