I gave up.
I completely gave up.
My first attempt at 21 Day Fix Extreme was a flop. I started off strong and then eventually let the excuses in my head over take me and I quit. I gained a little weight before my wedding so I went back and knocked it out of the park. My dress actually fit me loose. I thought I was doing great because I did well for those three weeks but I wasn't consistent after that.
I gained so much weight after my wedding because my life was literally flipped upside down and I didn't know how to handle the stress, the newness to the life I now was living, being a new wife, working a job I hated full time, etc. and maybe this is tmi but birth control effed my body up and most of my weight came from the stupid pill. I was on other medications and all of it combined was not putting my body in a good place.
I was at my heaviest during the holidays. It was my first Christmas married to my husband and I wanted to be happy and excited but I wasn't because I was disgusted with how big I had become. So much so that I didn't share any pictures of us from our first Christmas morning together. Seeing myself in those pictures made me want to cry. I was mad, upset, grossed out, sick and tired of being sick and tired and fed up. That's when I decided to give 21 Day Fix another chance but this time I would give it my all. And I did. Now I'm here and I'm going strong while regaining my confidence. I've exceeded my expectations because I'm still going, I haven't quit and I've never thought of quitting again.
