Looking in the mirror at 255lbs, just 5 days after having baby #3, I was disgusted with what I let my body become.....don't get me wrong, I just made a baby and was darn proud of that but making a baby doesn't mean gaining 50lbs, doesn't mean eating whatever I wanted....and that's exactly what I did.

Looking in the mirror now, after 2 years of cutting back on foods I love, spending lots of time in the gym...I still see that girl. I still see the weight, I still see what I hated so many months ago. It's feeling like there is an endless road in front of me and I'll never reach it. The lack of will power I have to resist foods that I know I shouldn't have, it's still the excuses I's as simple as believing.
Believing that I can & will reach the end. Believing that I can stop reaching for the foods that are bad for me. 
Believing that I look & feel much better than I did 2 years ago....and believing that I am worth it.
It's hard to think of ourselves, especially with kids, we tend to put others way over ourselves. We make ourselves feel like we aren't worth it. We do it so much that we start to actually believe it. But if we continue to do that, our body is going to reflect that....and that's exactly what it has done for me. I don't believe I can so I don't and therefore my body stays the same...and all this work I'm putting in at the gym simply does nothing. Along with my body, my mind is something I'm also working on. Probably something a lot of us should work on....

Believe your worth it & Believe you will finish what you started...that's the only way your body will reflect what you've been working so hard to do....*ya hear that Morgan?*
