My first post!

I'm so excited about all the progress I have made in my journey thus far! I started a little over a month ago and have already lost 15 pounds!
The title of my blog has a lot more meaning now than it would have had two months ago. When I started this new journey it was all about getting skinny and looking good, but it is so much more than that now! I am more concerned about my long term health and fitness than just lookin good. I am now more concerned about being healthy and in shape than just being skinny (but that comes along with it).
I am NOT on a diet. I have changed my lifestyle and my way of thinking.
People keep asking what I am doing to lose weight so quickly and I tell them exactly what they don't want to hear- started eating healthy, lowered my proportion sizes and started working out. For some reason people think that losing weight is "magic" and they think somehow the weight just falls off.
If you want to see results you MUST change your lifestyle!
I'm not a writer (not even close) so I may use a run-on sentences or fragments but I just like to write it out as it is- I will post on here as if you and I were having a conversation on Facebook- I want to make it as easy for you to understand a possible!
I'm not a personal trainer- I an still learning and the purpose of this blog is to share what works for me along the way.
I'm not a nutritionist- although I'm not a professional I have read a lot of books and I know what's good and what's bad. I have learned to make alternations for certain foods and it is still delicious! I love to cook and make up my own recipes!
I hope that through my journey on my way to fit I can help you! If you have any questions, comments or encouragement you would like to share just leave me a comment!
