First Time Here?


My Story

Hello There - I'm Josephine - but people call me Nykki. It's hard to say when I started my weight loss journey. I was average as a child.

If you would have asked me, I would have said I was overweight in high-school - but I wasn't. I didn't know what overweight meant. I guess it can mean different things to different people.

If we go by the medical BMI standards, I may have been classified as overweight. However, looking back - I was just fine. That number is ridiculous. Do I want to weigh less than 135, HECK YES, do I NEED to weigh less than 135 - NO. I see so many women who are a little over their BMI weights, and look incredible. They are SKINNY!

Anyway - back to my story. I started gaining the weight after I met my husband, 10 years ago. When I met him, I was around 140 - a good weight, a happy weight. I got comfortable. He loves food, I love food and the pounds just kept adding on. I couldn't eat anything I wanted. I can't eat anything I want.

At my highest weight, I weighed 265 {TWO HUNDRED AND SIXTY-FIVE}. That is not acceptable. Somewhere around the summer of 2015, I lost some weight - maybe 10 pounds. Then, in November of 2015 my life became so much more important. I found out I was pregnant with my first child.

While I was pregnant, I ate what I wanted - when I wanted. However, there came a time where I got really sick. I had pre-eclampsia and my beautiful baby girl came six weeks early. Along the way, I managed to lose about 35 pounds. I went from 255, to 230.

Now, I have a beautiful 9 month old baby girl. I have made the decision that I have to lose this weight. I don't want her to know her mom as being overweight, obese actually. I want her to see a healthy, happy woman who she can look up to.

At the end of February I decided to make a change. I joined Weight Watchers. Of course, I've done that before. I've tried all the diets. Nothing has ever worked. I made the choice to go to meetings this time. My first meeting was on February 21, 2017. I weighed 232.2 lbs.

The last month has not been perfect, but it has been successful. I'll save that for another post.
