Happy New Year from JBL! #Update

Happy New Year fashionistas! 2022 is finally here and I'm so glad we finally made it to see a new year. I definitely have grown and evolved since 2021, but I have some more growing to do. This year is about bettering ourselves, setting realistic goals, and fulfilling our dreams. I'm striving every day to better myself and to not stress over the little things.

If you're new here, Welcome to Just Being LaKedra. Just Being LaKedra is about showcasing budget-friendly fashion and giving tips on how to style and organize your fashion finds. My dream is to make this into my career one day. I love being able to help women embrace their curves and how to dress them. It doesn't take a lot of $$$$$ to look fabulous and if you follow me on social media, you will see that. If I can help at least one woman, that will definitely brighten my day.

I definitely strive to be more consistent than I was last year with this blog and to be more transparent with you guys. By the way, I do have some updates for yall. I'm currently on a low-carb diet and so far I have lost 27 pounds so far since September!! That led to the doctor taking me off one of my bp medications, which is exciting!! My goal is to reach my 50-pound weight loss before my 30th birthday in March. I'm so excited because I have been working hard. But with the weight loss, do come changes. If you're having the issue I'm having with clothes, stay tuned. I will be bringing you tips on how to navigate shopping for new fashion as you go through your weight loss journey.

Here's a after and before from 2020 to 2021:

Also if you haven't, be sure to check out the new year's sales. This is the best time to shop for fall/winter fashion because retailers will be making room to bring in spring fashion pretty soon. has its website up to 80% off. is up to 50% off sitewide and is also having 50% off sitewide. These are just a few I've been receiving emails on. So get to shopping!

Well yall! This is just a short post to check in with you guys and update yall on what's going on with me. Be sure to follow me on all social media platforms: @just_being_lakedra on Facebook and IG
