First I want to thank everyone for your support on my weight loss journey! From your advice on types of exercise, shoe suggestions, and even an invite to a Facebook group with a great group of women…Thank You!

So, I finally found me some shoes


They are Asics Gel-Nimbus 12 and they are heaven (and they have my favorite color purple on them)!  Like OMG, the best $125 I’ve spent in a while.  But guess what?  Their cheaper online at Lady Foot Locker

So I’m back at the mall, but this time I’m outside of the mall!


I park all the way at the top of the parking lot, then I walk down the hill and begin my walk around the entire mall




I have my earphones on while I listen to Pandora.  I like to mix it up between my Toni Braxton, Taylor Swift, and Beyonce.  But I’ll be lying if I didn’t say I mix in a little Jay-Z and KanyeSmile


If you thought I was cute at all, these images may just change your mind!


So after 35 minutes (that’s how long it takes me to walk around the entire mall), its time for me to head up the hill to my truck


By then, I’m a hot sweaty mess! But I feel soooo good afterwards!  The walk outside of the mall is so much better with all of the twists and turns and slopes and hills.  I feel like I get a better workout.  Plus, the breeze is so good.

Last week I lost 1.2lbs so now I’m down to 273!  My counselor told me that the 4lbs I lost the first week was water weight and that I’m on track when I’m losing 1-2lbs a week.  I can’t wait to see what I weigh on Friday.  I have about two more weeks on my trial Jenny Craig program and I’m wondering if I should continue with it.  My friend Kathysue told me that after 3 weeks of doing something, it becomes a habit.  She was totally right! My body don’t even crave snacks like it use to.  Plus I’m full faster and the size of the meals through Jenny Craig does not bother me at all.  I actually am full before I finish eating!

I’ll keep you posted of my progress!


Am I the only excited about Beyonce being pregnant?! Seriously, I cried a littleLaughing out loud

Take it easy and try NOT to come down hard on yourself at any given time. It takes time to take it off.
The walking is Soothing for the Soul.
Also Black Girls Run is a fun and gr8 group of women. Nothing but support!

Blessings to ya and see ya at the Top of Stone Mountain!!!

Excellent progress, I would love to take this walk with you in what looks like very warm weather! One foot in front of the other, that is how you get somewhere, small steps and big steps!

Just stumbled on your blog - congrats on the weight loss. What Whattt!


Carmel @ Our Fifth House said...

You're doing good and you look a heck of a lot better than I do when I workout. I'm so not a natural beauty like you are- but I refuse to be one of those women that works out with makeup on. Keep it up - you're doing so good!

Kudos on your loss, good for you! The right shoes make a huge difference and so does having the right music. I always say that Lady Gaga can take credit for my shrinking thighs. LOL! Keep up the great work!

Kathysue said...

Laekitha I am sooooo PROUD of YOU!!! You are inspiring me to do the same. I walked 4 days this week. 3 times around the park behind my house is a mile. Ihope to continue. I had the same problem finding shoes to fit my foot. I have a very narrow foot(the only skinny thing on my body) I even have to put cushions on the heel and the tongue to keep them tight enough. The shoe salesman said I should have custom shoes made. Sure and how much will that be? $$$$$. Keep it up sweetie you are doing great!!! xo Kathysue

The Lemonade Diet: Again very effective if you are looking How to Lose Weight Fast, not quite as unpleasant on the smelly side as the cabbage diet is, but prolonged use best way to lose weight of this diet has been known to have adverse side effects with regard to mood swings, so the best advice would have to be to only use this one in short sharp weight loss bursts.
