How did I get here? Weight gain, missing edges..


Hey Thriftanistas!

I know the blog has been all over the place but honestly it reflects my life at the moment.  In so many words I have been all over the place.  In the past few months I have gained 20 pounds, lost my edges around the front perimeter of my head and I am unable to fit anything in my closet!


I guess the saying is true…”when it rains it pours.” A few years ago I wouldn’t have discussed my problems so openly.  In fact, I probably would have exercised in private and not been photographed until I was looking my best but you know what you live and you learn.  But guess what? Life happens.  It has taken me a while to reach this point but I have learned to love my myself unconditionally.  I know it’s hard this day and age with social media constantly allowing you to compare yourself to others.


For the next few weeks I will be documenting my journey right here on the blog as well as snapchat (thriftinghuntsv).  And guess what – I am going to thrift myself at every stage of my weight loss!  That’s the great thing about thrifting it accommodates everyone!  Be sure to join me every Thursday as I update my edge growth and weight loss journey! Until next week….

  1. Hey!! Got a question for you? Have you had your thyroid checked? Weight gain and hair loss are two good indicators of thyroid malfunction. I have thyroid problems so I read about it all the time.

    1. Hey Ashley!
      Thank you so much for reading and responding. I did consult with my physician and I’m healthy as an ox. However, I deployed last year and a few of the other girls are experiencing the same problem. It may have to due with the water/medicine we were taking for a full year 😔 With the weight gain…I have been eating too much and it’s time to cut back!


  2. I will be following your weight loss journey. Hopefully you will put up what you are doing so that we can lose with you. Great article by the way self love is everything


  3. Good for you! Keep rockin’ and rollin’! I’m going to follow you on Snapchat… my username is JennLJohnson00 if you want to follow me for health, fitness and wellness inspiration 🙂
