So I've not been good with my weight loss blogging. But that is because I barely have time. I'm a lurker on all of your lovely blogs. I may not comment as much as I'd love to but I'm reading all of your posts and sharing in your journeys and more so cheering you on :)

I've been staying on top of my eating and drinking habits. I have to say even though I've not been working out as much as I'd like, making healthy eating and drinking choices counts too! I've gone down from a size 14 to a 12 and much to my surprise the size 12 jeans are starting to hang a lil loose and my 40DDD bras fit better without the pouring out at the top :) My face has also gotten a lot more clearer..hardly any break outs. Still chugging my water especially in this heat I have to and drinking my black tea that is full of antioxidants.

However, I still need to put a lot of work on my arms and stomach area. I had my best person take nekkid pictures of me the other day and I've to admit I have come a looooooong way :) and I'm so proud of myself and this motivates me even more to work harder and tone up my arms and stomach by losing the 'sway' in my arms and flattening my stomach. My thighs are way smaller and my waist is a lil smaller too to the point where I'm forced to wear my belt on the very last hole and still my pants fit lose :) progress progress progress

Now I'll not forget to pat myself on the back but I'll also not let myself get caught up in the progress and lose sight of the bigger picture. I want to see more and more changes in me as I become healthier and more fit :) I'm yet to enroll in a gym and invest in good weights. Pretty soon though. So watch this space.

All the best as you continue on your journey!
