When we welcomed 2019, I got this weird feeling well not weird but great feeling that this was going to be my year. This year is going to be the year that I finally put myself first and work on becoming a better and healthier version of myself.
Two weeks ago exactly I started intermittent fasting in hopes of losing weight and getting healthy and honestly I have been loving it. I fast daily for about 14 to 16.5 hours meaning I do not eat or drink anything during that time frame except for water and black coffee. I can technically have black or green tea s well but I do not like my tea without sugar and honey so I rather stick to black coffee and water only. I have also started working out (this week more so than last week) and have lost a total of 4.5 pounds in two weeks.(WOOHOO)
I also got off my birth control two weeks ago today! I’m very curious to see how my body reacts this time around to it; last time I got off birth control to try and get pregnant, I gained almost 40 pounds within a year, broke out like insane and was so moody and tired all the time. Oh and I don’t get my period without my pill so we shall see about that too! I have heard intermittent fasting helps some women with their hormones and get pregnant as well so we shall see if it helps me with my crazy hormone imbalance.
I’m excited to share my journey with you guys!
Till next time….

I experienced some of the same symptoms when I got off of birth control. I had never experienced acne before and as soon I stopped the pills, my face broke out each week. It has been years and I am still dealing with adult acne SMH. Great post!
Ugh it’s the worst! I’m sorry you’re dealing with it too! 😔
