For all of you ladies out there who have that tummy that just wont seem to go away no matter how hard you work, I GET IT. & I know how frustrating & hard it can be always feeling self conscious about your pooch, or how far your belly is sticking out, or how many rolls you have when you sit, or the muffin top in certain jeans. My tummy is my trouble spot && has been my biggest insecurity for as long as I can remember. & its honestly very sad how much time in my life I have spent worrying about what my tummy looks like… && unfortunatly its still something I do struggle with from time to time.
BUT, with eating a healthy diet & incorporating both weight training & cardio into my lifestyle… I have transformed my body & now have a tummy that I can be proud of. Sure I still wish I had abs & was a little leaner in that region… & mark my words I WILL get there one day… but for now I am very proud at how far I have come.
& guess what… it didnt come from doing just doing abs 😱🤔
Getting a flat tummy comes with general weight loss… which is done through diet & exercise. ALL types of exercise. You cant just decide you want to have abs, & do abs, then abs appear. It doesn’t work that way sadly.
These pictures are almost exactly 3 years apart with loots & lotts of learning about my body through trial & error in between. The right is the summer I started lifting weights & I actually took that picture bc I was finally feeling good & somewhat lean for the first time ever. The left was this morning. & believe it or not I weight at least 8lb more now than I did then.
It wont always be easy... & for some of you it’ll be really freaking hard.
But you CAN reach your goals so don’t give up.
But also enjoy yourself & always remember that you are worth more than a belly pooch ruining your day 💋
