20 + pounds down and feeling proud 🤭 Story below ⬇️⬇️⬇️ I say 20 "plus" because I dont know what I weighed when I started this journey, but I know it was an extra 20 and then plus some. Seeing so many of my loved ones have unhealthy relationships with the scale, all my life I swore to myself that if I felt good, the number didnt matter... and then one day it did. Lets rewind to 4 1/2 year ago when things really started to change. I started dating my current boyfriend, partying more, and my freshman 15 turned into freshman 50. As my weight increased, my reason for not looking at the scale changed... I was scared of what the number would be. I didnt feel good, and I knew I had gained a significant amount of weight.
After I started this fitness journey in August '17, I was feeling good and by November I was gaining my confidence back! All was good until I went to the doctors and she had to weigh me... Let's just say, the number she told me was not the number I was expecting and the devastation was real. I guess since I didnt know where I started, I thought I weighed less than I actually did at the moment. All my hard work up to that point didnt matter. Since that day, that number has been my "before" weight, even though I had been working hard for almost 2 months at that point. And since that moment, I have dropped 20 pounds. My lifestyle has done a complete 180 thanks to @kaylaitsines . I workout 5-6 times a week (and LOVE the program), grab for the healthier options, and love seeing the positive changes that keep happening as the journey continues. Now dont get me wrong, I'm not on the scale every day obsessing about my weight! But about every 3 weeks I check in, because there absolutely is fat I still need to loose and the scale is a great way to track that. So for me it's not #fuckthescale , it's about healthy relationships with the fitness journey, having a realistic mind set, and crushing goals the way that works best for me! 😘 Everyone is different, let's embrace that!
