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.

BUT…

Come on Natasha- 4 pounds is really good!

Be Proud!

A healthy BMI for a female of my height:

18.5-24.9

Even with the extra poundage.. I was at a healthy BMI of 23.9

With four pounds lost I am now at:

23.2

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.

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! πŸ™‚

  1. 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!!!

    1. 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 πŸ™‚

      Ill have to research catalyst. I’ve toned before with P90x and loved the results !

      1. Catalyst is called the “potato peeler” of extra fat. My friend Neely has had an opportunity to use it and loves it!! She used to be a personal trainer! If you’d like to speak with her she is on Facebook! Neely Heil πŸ™‚

    1. 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 πŸ™‚

  3. 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!
