What I Eat in a Day (-2 LBS Each Week)

My Weight Loss Journey

I began my journey April of this year. Some weeks I would exercise and diet rigorously, others not. My routine has not been consistent, but nonetheless I have shed around 21 pounds (as of September 1). Last month I managed to lose 7.8 pounds. The dieting method that deserves credit for my past and ongoing weight loss is the calorie deficit diet

My Weight Loss Regimen

As I am not a gym buff, I do not find it necessary to consume many calories. I try not to surpass 1500 calories daily. Some days I will consume the entire 1500, while other days of the week I’ll consume 8 or 900. I have started going to the gym again this month, but I am not doing high intensity training, yet. 

I am sharing photos of what I ate yesterday, Sept. 19, so you can see an example of my diet. I do not eat the same things every day, but I do make at least one meal in a large batch to last me a week. For the last 3 weeks, my large batch of choice has been posole.

The food below was an approximate 1,030-1,080 calories.

OOTD Using Dressbarn Only (Plus Size)

I am very particular as to the kind of attire I wear. I like to dress conservatively to work or professional functions, and even in everyday life. My preference is contrary to what most women my age like. I never expose my arms–as it is an insecurity of mine and have a skin condition–but enjoy wearing skirts that expose my legs. My ankles can barely tolerate kitten heels and 2-inch wedges.

When it is time to go shopping, Dressbarn is at the top of the list for young professional women seeking a collection of attire which exuberates class and sophistication. The outfit shown in the pictures below was worn during a day out when I had to run a lot of errands. Some may think I overdressed, but dressing this way outside of the workplace shows your professionalism and class to the public. I used to wear jeans, camis, and hoodie wherever I went, but at the urging of my husband, who in turn purchased for me a lot of clothes, I knew this was the appropriate time I start dressing like the university-educated, professional woman I am.

I couldn’t find the cardigan and top on Dressbarn’s website but managed to find the skirt and shoes. The cardigan is very airy and lightweight. The top is brand new and feels so soft. The pencil skirt is a bit worn because I wear it often but has a good weight to it and the pleats are flattering to larger figures. I purchased the shoes for my wedding in March and are so elegant and comfortable.

*This post was not at all sponsored nor did I receive any contact from Dressbarn reps. I just really love their store!
