Life's a Climb, But the View's Great

Hi everyone! My name's Jamie. I'm 20 and I am currently going to school for nutrition to hopefully become a Registered Dietician!!! I have struggled with my weight my whole life. I have also been battling PCOS since I was 14. This blog is both a way for me to document my weight loss journey and to express all the emotions that come along with trying to change and love yourself simultaneously <3 If anyone ever needs anyone to talk to don't ever hesitate to message me xoxox

***Hi everyone! I’m currently in the process of redesigning my fitlbr!!!! I have been going through my weight loss journey for 2 years now! In these last two years I have lost 65 lbs and have gone through many different “phases.” I am trying to update my progress pictures and my different recipes and foods (since I am now a vegetarian) so please don’t mind the mess while I fix all of this!!!! :)

There’s no such thing as: 

  • Using too much conditioner
  • putting on too much eyeliner
  • wearing too much black
  • being too nervous/sad/angry/happy about someone/something
  • liking a band “too much”
  • falling for someone too fast/too hard.

just remember that ok

I keep seeing quite a lot of misinformation about PCOS going around, and just thought I’d share a few facts that I know, along with some the PCOS Nutrition Center shared back in September for PCOS Awareness Month. I think a majority has to do with lack of knowledge,…

Any tips on staying healthy during college? I just finished my freshman orientation and I've already fallen off track when it comes to eating healthy and exercising regularly..

School is weighing on you, course work is kicking your A$$, work is beyond stressful, workout…you dont even have enough time to sleep! let alone workout!…..

So how do you deal?  How do you stay on track and when all you want to do is cry?!

  1. Take a step back: You cant win the war if your running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off, or sitting back in the corner in the fetal position . Focus on what you CAN control.  You HAVE to go to classes, you HAVE to study, you HAVE to go to work…and you HAVE to eat.
Now which of those contribute to weight?? WHAT YOU PUT INTO YOUR BODY.
What are you reaching for when those stress moments arise?
Crazy stressed person number1, reaches for:
  • Chips, cookies
  • fast food
  •  ice-cream
  •  Lives on frozen meals because no time for ANYTHING

Crazy Stressed person number2 reaches for:
  • apples slices with peanut butter
  • yogurt with granola
  • cheese stick with fruit
  •  hummus and veggies
  • ham and cheese sandwich (or veggie if your vegan like me)
Now….do you think those students who are BOTH stressed…would have the same weight gain?? I dont think so.
When you feel like your life is falling apart, and you don’t have time for anything…focus on your food.
Food is powerful. It’s how our bodies LIVE. Make the right choices starting at the grocery store and you will have the tools to help control your crazy life. Will it get you straight A’s and get you a  promotion at work….probably not. BUT you will not feel your pants get tighter, you might even find yourself having to squeeze in time to buy a smaller size. I think I can handle that kind of stress 8)
Grocery Shop  with a healthy goal in mind.
