I just started trying to lose weight the past three weeks but even walking an hour a day to classes and dance workouts every other day for an hour with eating 80% clean is not reaping a lot of reward. I've only maintained my weight. How long into your health journey did you start seeing results on the scale?
You def need to give it time, it took me 4 months until I really started to notice change.
You’ll get there :)
I’m not in school, and I did not go to school right after highschool, too much pressure ;p
How can you be so motivated to lose weight? I do want to lose some weight too but it's hard for me to get motivated 😭 You're so gorgeous btw! xoxo
You need to always remind yourself of why you’re doing this, Understand that healthy eating is easier when you’re younger than when you decide to do this 10 years from now. You also want to avoid diabetes and other health scares.
Your actually so gorgeous! Your such an inspiration !! What did u eat and what excersises did you do ?
Thank you so much!
I ate a lot of fruit and veggies, lean meats and LOTS OF WATER. Try to give your body it’s daily nutrients and exercise. That’s all it asks for! :)
I've been following your blog for about 2 years now and you're so inspiring. I keep falling off the wagon though. And then I feel worse about myself every time I fail. Eating right is what always gets me in trouble. I'm not great with exercising either. I often start super excited then just stop. I want to live a healthy and fit lifestyle I'm just not sure how to go about it. Thank you for being inspirational!
One of my biggest things with falling off track with food is Preparation and being prepared.
Do something for one week for me and let me know how it goes. Pack snacks for everyday of the week and some water and carry it around with you WHEREVER you go. See how that works for you, because I know if I carry a bottle of water and some fruit in my bag I’ll munch on them throughout the day which prevents excuses and binge eating, also if someone offers you a cookie you’ll say ” No thanks, I have some berries”
Just give it one week and see how you do! Please fill me in on how you did! :)
I walked an hour a day when I first started and slowly started working out from home, like boxing and intense workout videos, and then I joined a gym to start toning and work on my muscle :)
Hi Krystal! Do you have an email where I could send you a screenshot I just took? I know this sounds like the craziest request, but I found a site using what I THINK is your photo and I just thought you should know. I've been following you on tumblr for a long time and you're one of my favorite blogs, and I'd want someone to do the same for me if it were my photos. (I promise this isn't a weird spam request for your email!) Best -- Lynda G.
Oh I know exactly what photo you’re talking about, I have seen it many times, and sadly there is nothing I can do about it! :( But I honestly thank you so much and appreciate you bringing this to my attention, it’s nice to know I have so many people who have my back!
You're so beautiful 😍 I want to lose 100 pounds and im ready for this commitment but where to start? How do i decide what to eat, how many calories to eat, do i just do cardio or cardio with strength training? How did you start working out? Thank u
I find when people start a healthy lifestyle, they think WAY to into it, Like there is a checklist. There really isn’t… it’s about making better choices. By you waking up on a Saturday morning and choosing to go for a run or to the gym instead of sleeping in… that’s starting, or having some berries for breakfast instead of a pop tart… that’s starting. It’s the little things we change that we don’t always recognize, but that’s us leading a healthier life.
Hi, I'm currently on a road trip up to New York and I'm on a diet. But of course I'm gonna try some pizza and cheesecake! I just wanted some advice on how to balance out my diet while I'm there so that I don't over do it. Thanks!
Enjoy yourself. Enjoy yourself in moderation. If you want some pizza, have some pizza, but maybe see if a friend wants to share a slice, same goes for the cheesecake, have some but try to control how much of it you have. Leading a healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean eating 110% clean all the time, it’s about being smart about what you’re putting in your body and knowing that it’s okay to treat yourself to something yummy as long as you’re aware that this is just a treat not something that becomes a habit. And always try to portion control those sweets.
Hi there! For so long I have been trying to get to my goal weight but I lose a lot of motivation. I came across your blog and it inspired me! What ways do you think I can keep myself motivated and keep wanting to exercise! Haha.
Losing motivation is one of the most common things when trying to lead a healthy lifestyle. I lose motivation sometimes and it’s real easy to be out with friends or seeing a movie with your boyfriend and they are all eating this real yummy food and you just want to enjoy yourself too! But I find the best way to beat the motivation loss blues is to ALWAYS be prepared. Always carry healthy yummy snacks with you and a bottle of water at all times so you never give yourself an excuse to question your motivation, Quickly have a drink of water and remind yourself of why you are doing this and how happy you are that you chose this path. Being prepared and prepping meals and snacks increases your chances of falling off track by a trillion. I know this method works for me so give it a try! Let me know how it goes!
our stories are identical. I lost 90 lbs and then gained 20 back this last year. I'm ready to focus on me again! I'd love to hear your methods. good luck!
It’s a struggle to gain weight after working so hard to lose it, but it’s always fun to start a new Journey again,
What kind of yogurt and fruit do you use for your breakfast & how do you know the granola you're using is healthy? Stealing your breakfast idea and want to make sure I'm getting the right stuff :)
I love my yogurt and I love my yogurt Organic. I also like to try different yogurts, so I switch it up often. So as far as yogurts go I do my best to stick to organic. I love berries, they are seriously my fav! And as for granola, Again I like to switch it up and try new things, I bought a new organic granola, but I have not tried it yet, I’ll let you know how it is :)
I have gained about 10lbs . But im totally okay with that, because im in the works of starting a whole new weightloss journey :D
