OOTD : Down to the Last Pound

My OOTD blog posts from now on will be extra special because I am joining the journey of my co-blogger, Elisabeth (see here). Though I am not as bold as her and the other ladies to update you guys of my daily lifestyle and eating habits, I’ll give you a different update. Here’s my own way of joining her journey :

WEEK 1

Weight : 171.1 Lbs

Date Started : May 21, 2016

Target Weight : 124.7 (Right BMI)

Lesson to Share : In losing weight, the main effort must come from you!

In the weeks to come, I’ll be posting details about my journey as well. In support with Elisabeth and all the women who are in this journey with me.. with us.. I am glad that Elisabeth inspired me (just as usual) with her recent post and made me seriously decide to make this public. I hope that while we walk through this journey, may you also find hope and encouragement to start TODAY.

To start with, let me give you an idea of why I am in this situation. Growing up, I was really chubby. From 120 lbs till college, I lost 30 lbs in a year because of a heartbreak and an encouragement from my mom to lose weight so I can fit on a gown for my 18th birthday party. This was the result :

For years, I was this thin until I got married and had Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome after giving birth on our first child.Β Because of that, I reached 210 lbs. 2010, I did my best to lose weight. Because of running and having a healthier lifestyle, I lost 70 lbs in a year. I was so happy at that time because my Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome was gone for the meantime and that caused me to be pregnant for the 2nd time.

 

From 140 lbs, I gained 40 more lbs while pregnant. After giving birth, I lost 20 lbs. I was quite happy to be at 160 lbs.

 

Last year, I had Hypothyroidism. From 160 lbs, I gained 5 lbs at the end of 2015. Lately, I was hospitalized and took steroids for a month. That gave me another 6 lbs. I feel like crying. I’m starting to lose clothes that fit and I started to not feel good about myself. 😒

Until I read about Elisabeth’s post and the other women who posted their comments that served as an encouragement for me up to this date. Yes losing weight is hard since I have PCOS and hypothyroidism, but I know that with the right motivation, things will be better soon… just like before!

Accessories from Forever 21

For my makeup, I used MAC purple/pink eyeshadow and Ofra Laguna liquid lipstick on the lips. Last week, I blogged about MAC Retro MatteΒ and to really compare Ofra from MAC, I used Ofra on this look. True enough! MAC will still win over Ofra since MAC lasts longer and still has better quality.

I’m wearing a Plains & Prints RAF pink-purple dress, and that is why I made the look a purple-pink combo. The dress is studded yet very simple. It is flowy and light. I paired it with a light bracelet and ring then wore a small pink/white earrings from Forever 21.

Ladies, what do you think of this look? What do you think about our challenge to all women to look and feel healthier? Are you going to join me, Elisabeth and other women in this journey as well? Let me know. Let’s walk through this journey together and battle obesity faster. God bless you all!

  1. Hey love, I totally got your comment but sometimes my replies don’t show! I am going to write it on here too!

    OOOO how exciting love!! I am so glad you are joining! I am currently creating a Facebook group for us as well. It will start in June. We can post anything related to the journey! Blog posts, tips, recipes, etc. It will be a way to grow our blogs and get fit and healthy at the same time. I will link your post in my daily post too! Here is the Facebook group if you would like to join. It officially launches in June and we can start posting our posts there too! https://www.facebook.com/groups/chubbygirlsgetskinny/

    Okay now for my comments on your post! Girl you are genius!! I love your setup so much! I love how everyone is taking this and totally making it their own. That is what I love more than anything! I loved reading your story and your ups and downs! We are totally here for you and I am just so proud of you for all you have come through!

    OO and with the Facebook group in June we will set up accountability. Therefore, you will have the group page (the Facebook group) to get motivation and share struggles all the while promoting our blogs and you will have an accountability/email partner for when you are really struggling and need help (obviously you don’t have to choose this option haha). I would love for you to join Brie and I since it is just us right now. We email when we are struggling/don’t want to write a whole blog post about it haha! My email is alittlebitofeverythingblogs@gmail.com. If you have any suggestions for this group/facebook group, I would love to hear them too! I am thinking about in the future of starting Twitter chats #CGGS (chubbygirlsgetskinny) to talk about well everything we go through! I would love to hear your thoughts and am just so happy to have you joining us!

    Sorry for the mile long comment! I just wanted to fill you in and see what you think! WE GOT THIS GIRL!! ONE DAY/STEP AT A TIME!

      1. That is what we are all here for! I see so many weightloss sources are all skinny people that were once overweight. And they are all doing crazy hard stuff and that just doesn’t work when you are starting off. You can’t just expect to do crazy intense stuff right off the bat. I wanted to do something different. Something we all could really do for the rest of our lives! I can’t wait until June when the page launches officially. One May 31, we can all post our latest few posts so we can have a few posts for new members to read. Then whenever you right about your fitness journey make sure to link the post on the Facebook page. You can also right anything on the wall too. I am so excited girl because we can do this!!! Support means everything!!

  2. Hi! I’m Brie but you can call me Shai. I am so glad you have joined Elisabeth and myself on the CGGS Journey!!! I’m really proud of you to keep going through all that you have gone through. I can’t imagine how hard it was losing and gaining like that but now that you’re apart of the journey, you have more women and girls to support you in the good and bad times! Love your outfit also!! So cute!
