2 week progress by our girl @ruth_denisse 💪🏽💕
She's being following a plant based diet since our May #31daypbpu 🍃 and using the #fitandthickapp 💪🏽
"I can definitely start off by saying the best thing that has ever happened to me was joining the PBPU with @nicole_mejia and the F+T crew. I must admit, and I'm not lying when I say this, every single day my body went through something. All 31 days I went through so many ups and downs, a roller coaster of emotions and physical changes. The week we began, my body was loving it! Detoxing, flat stomach, so much energy, GREAT! Then... the second week happens, and the following, and a few days before we wrapped it up. When I say bloating...I mean BLOATING. I looked 7 months pregnant and my pictures are still up if anyone has doubts. You know how you get bloated throughout the day but then you wake up the next day with a flat stomach? I would wake up bloated still. I went through so much self-doubt, I thought, 'maybe this just isn't for me, I'm just never going to be able to change how my body looks, or how it feels,' but I honestly have never seen so much love and support from a group of girls. Those girls pushed me - no, we pushed each other through some tough times. Nicole really took the time to explain in the live streams as well as in comments how the body works and why we experience bloating. The girls recommended probiotics, papaya enzymes, and home remedies such as ginger tea. It took a while, some are lucky and go through bloating for a week or so. I, unfortunately, went an entire month and then some before my stomach went back to normal, but let me tell you: IT WAS ALL WORTH IT. I went in thinking, 'I'm going to lose so much weight' and came out no caring what the scale had to say about my weight, my scale is my cutting board for my vegetables now. I came out with a new group of sisters, a loving group of girls that till this day invite each other on runs or walks early in the mornings. ....
