My Vision Board

This is what the wall next to my bed looks like. I attached pics of things that I want manifested in my life. Weight loss has been the theme for my vision board for the pass 5 or 6 months. As you all know and the purpose of this blog is to document my weight loss journey so I thought I'd share it.

Have a great week!

I Guess I’m Losing



To my surprise when visiting my mom, my 6-year old niece complimented me on my weight loss journey, “Nyssa, you look like you’re losing weight”, I just love my Amber Pooh to pieces. I have also had a few co-workers to tell me that they see a difference. I appreciate that, it is truly motivating. Sometimes we can’t see what others on the outside looking in see. I lost between 10-15 pounds since starting out on this journey.
My weight loss is a slow roll but I have no problem with that, it just means that I’ll keep it off. I have 8 months to go to lose 60 pounds. I know I can do it!

Still Loving The Belly Fat Cure


I am still utilizing the Belly Fat Cure lifestyle change for my eating habits. This way of life is so easy to maintain. I have a total weight loss of 15 pounds since beginning this lifestyle change. This is a great diet, in that you don’t feel deprived of your favorite foods. If you watch your sugar intake and control those carbs, you will definitely lose weight!

Still Down


I am still working on being consistent with my workout routine. It’s going better than it has been I must say. Right now, I’m working on getting my energy levels up. I’m pretty sure going to bed before 11:30 would help tremendously. I recently ran out of my fiber pills so that could be part of the problem also. Speaking of those pills, they are great! Everyday Fiber by Rainbow Light is an awesome fiber supplement that keeps things flowing smoothly.

I’m still loving my power walks. It helps to clear my mind and burn LOTS of calories. I’ve created a “Get Haute” play list on my I-pod that keeps me going while I’m exercising. It helps a lot!! I still do Hip Hop Abs, just not that often. I still haven’t tried Turbo Jam yet but I have to try it out before my sis goes back to college. *tear

Anyway, that’s the latest!

Down but not out


This weight loss diet thingy has its ups and downs but I am still holding on. I haven't been exercising much at all! It's a shame because my body was responding positively. The rain off and on here, for the past 2 weeks has kept me from going walking to burn those calories. BUT that's no excuse as to why I didn't do my dvd workouts. Shame on me, Nyssa!!
Eventhough, I haven't exercised much, I have managed to maintain my weight and eat healthy. *mini toot-toot* That being said, I am on a mission to exercise everyday until my sister goes back to college on the 29th of this month. She has managed to keep her weight off that she dropped prior to coming back home for the summer but would still like to lose 5 more pounds, so we're going to this boot camp style! *Mental Note - post her before & after pics* I plan on doing at least 1 round of Tabatas daily to jumpstart my fatburning battery (metabolism), walking, Turbo Jam and Hip Hop Abs. You just gotta love Beachbody products!
Anywho, that's the latest, I'll be checking back to update my progress on this wonderful weight loss journey of mine sooner than later. ;-)
Have a great weekend!
