Almost 2 years ago. When I wore this outfit I felt so self conscious. I felt skinny and bland. I was thin after my first baby and tried to gain weight for over a year. Yeah that was my problem after a baby, we all have different goals.
Flat tummy and abs yet I wouldn't even wear jeans because I swore I had no butt, no matter how many times I was complimented. It was in my own head.
I refused any cardio and gave up the thing I love most, running. Lifted heavy weights every day. Mentally was where I should have strengthened myself.
It was unhealthy and ugly. I will never be this woman again.
Looking at this picture I think dang I look good. What was wrong with me. Don't do that Patricia.
I know so many of you can relate. I know a lot of you say the same thing about gaining weight. Losing weight.
Today I wear sexy outfits and wear what I want to salsa and love myself and don't allow myself to think about getting thin as a bad thing. I eat healthy and keep my calories up, but I will never do a Krispy Cream diet again in my life, just to gain some weight. I will never kill myself to look any type of way.
I am powerful and my body does crazy things and I feed it amazing clean food because it deserves nothing less.
I have my body type and I embrace it and love it and I'll never try to be anything els.
I will do races again and competitions and run and lift and swim and live. Live. The way my body looks is secondary. Living is what I want to do. And pushing my body to do amazing things. I will wear crop tops more Offen lol
I look at this beautiful woman next to me, we are both hot! So different and so hott🙌🏽 and perfect and so sexy when we feel that way.
