For the longest time I've done this weight loss thing for my family...for my husband so he can be proud to call me his wife, for my kids who I want to be able to keep up with as they grow, and for family & friends that I want to prove something too. Only lately have I been thinking of myself and that's super hard for me to do.
Along this journey, I've made mistakes...I haven't always eaten right...I didn't always make it to my classes at the gym...I put my families needs ahead of my own...and most of all, I've made excuses, a lot! Well, no more folks!
So here it is....the picture I took a while ago but didn't have the guts to post, till today. Ya'll Ready?:
(thanks to Brin, check her out...she is amazing!)
I've come a long way from where I started, don't get me wrong...but I also have a long ways to go....I give all you readers advice (that sometimes I don't even listen to) I offer motivation and encouragement only to do & feel the complete opposite at times.
I sometimes feel like I have 2 different bodies....there is the top half of me and my legs that look they belong to someone else then there is the round middle area...and honestly, it's all my fault...they say you are what you eat...and in this case, I must have swallowed a 10 ton wrinkly doughnut...what I put in my mouth is what's keeping me from my goal. So I am putting this out there; 1. As a regular gal who struggles with her weight, like anyone else but; 2. So that I can give you a badass after photo. I want this out there so that I can show you a difference...a difference in me, my outlook, my eating, my progress...everything.
I'm just like you....read more HERE
I struggle with my weight everyday but I'm not giving up....I will not quit and I will reach my goal!
Don't stop....Don't quit....and Don't Settle when you know you deserve more.
For those of you who aren't blind after seeing that photo, I appreciate the support & the positive energy I get through each one of my readers...and don't be afraid to put yourself out there....you never know what wonderful things will come from it....
