Set your goals high, and don't stop till you get there. - Bo Jackson

Happy 1st day of June my lovely friends!
We are officially less than a month away from the last day of school and exactly one month away from my birthday. Eeeee... many exciting things to come, including reaching my first weight goal!

 I've been staring at my computer screen for the past hour, wanting to delete this post.
 I've even shed a few tears. I have no idea how I let my weight balloon the way it did, but it happened and I have to stop crying about it and do something! And the great news is that I have! I've made sure to workout everyday, stop eating rice every single day and not eat bread daily. It seems like  a lot to sacrifice, but it's all worth it in the end!
It's been in up and down journey and I finally realized that I had to stop being a prisoner of my own body!
It's time to start feeling good about myself & most importantly respecting myself & my body!

In my last post I mentioned that I'd lost 6 pounds but I don't have a picture of me on the scale with my weight showing. In a way it's a little bit good because I feel nauseated every time I think about the number. But I do have a picture of me from last week on the scale and I will post that one and the one with today's weight. Those 6lbs will not count, as they were probably water weight. I'm really scared to post these pictures up! Why? Because I'm so huge and the number just makes me cringe and want to cry :( but enough loathing. This is only the beginning and I know that I will make it!

5/26/12 Starting weight
6/1/12 Lost three pounds in a week :)
 Scary numbers, I know! But I am so proud of myself, whenever I think of eating something not healthy I just touch my stomach and think about how light I am starting to feel and how great it feels to see the numbers go down.
 Quick note: Last night I had the worst craving for some Mexican bread that I almost cried! Yes, I almost cried! Food is an addiction just in case you didn't know.
 Now for my first goal weight, to lose at least 7lbs by July 1st! The day I turn __? :). 
I must remember that all in small steps, it will take time but it will happen!
That's why I've made sure to make small goals at a time. I will talk about my next goal once I reach this one, which will be very soon!

 To keep myself accountable I'm making sure to log my workouts everyday on Instagram!

It can be a pain sometimes to start the workout, especially when I'm lounging comfortably on my bed with the air conditioner on. But it's such a great feeling every time I finish my workout. 
I always feel pumped, powerful and happy!
Everyday is a new beginning!
And I look forward to this journey!

P.S. The best of luck to my munchkin tomorrow!! He has a belt test in Taekwondo for his double black stripe around his red belt! Which means he will be one belt away from being a black belt! My baby is my inspiration!! Lots of luck my Miguelito! Kiyah!!!


  1. Pretty Kary yes, food is an addiction!! BUT WE CAN BEAT IT!!

    I am so proud of you for all those changes you are doing for yourself and your health!! Now that I myself started exercising I also feel pumped up after a workout and every time I twist my waist I envision myself where I want to be!!

    I know how old you will be on July 1st ;) Best of luck to Miguelito, he is almost a true Ninja Xavi would say!

    My kiddos are out of school today! The start of our Summer vacation!

    I love you Kary, keep up the good work, I can't wait to see more post about your goals being accomplished!!

  2. Kary, I'm sure it is very hard to do what you're doing. I do not need to lose weight but I definitely need to start paying closer attention to what I eat and how much exercise I get. It SUCKS, to say it nicely. I definitely don't feel like working out after working all day, but I know I must. You are truly and inspiration and I'm so proud of you. Don't be scared of the numbers. They do not define you. You are beautiful at any weight because you are an amazing person, but you are super amazing because you care about yourself and it shows in these pictures. Way to go, girl!

  3. Kary,
    Yay! For you!! You can do this! Focus on your progress, not the past. That will help so much. Let yourself have a treat every now and again too and don't beat yourself up about it. Just enjoy the moment and get back up tomorrow and continue the fight. I found that this really helped. Otherwise I got burned out. It's all about our choices and celebrate success whenever you can! :) Gina

  4. Kary you are an inspiration and I want you to know that what you are doing is amazing! You are changing your mindset and wanting to make the change. I'm so proud of you. I think it's a great idea that you are making yourself accountable to your blog and instagram because it will give you that extra bit of motivation. You're so incredible. Never forget that lovely lady xx

  5. I am also on a weight loss journey.. It's going good so far :)

  6. My Sunshine, you are far from huge! You are gorgeous. Any extra weight you may have is carried so wonderfully on your body, you're very lucky!

    Together we can inspire and cheer each other on! We can do this! I've fallen off the bandwagon a bit lately because of my sore stomach, and mostly that has resulted in eating things I know I shouldn't. And I don't even know why, it's not like you feel refreshed and energised after a huge pile of chips and chocolate!

    I just threw out the junk food, so now we are left with a fridge full of veggies and fruit. Power to us, my love! We will conquer this one step at a time!
