The two most common questions I get on transformation pics are how tall are you and how long did it take?
I'm 163cm or 5'4" which is the average height of females and the reason I refuse to hem any jeans. If brands don't cater for my height then I don't want to know about them. 😜
There are 3.5 years between pics and often people feel the need to sarcastically congratulate me on taking that long to lose 5kg but it didn't take that long... these pics just happen to be comparing the time where I said to myself enough was enough and my current form.
There comes a time where you don't want or feel the need to lose any more fat.. yes it kind of means you feel your progress is at a standstill in term of looks as creating definition takes longer but what the two pics don't show is gains in strength, fitness, confidence and body composition. I have a lot less fat and more muscle now so despite not being a whole lot smaller my shape has changed.
I've always been the kind of person that needed to see progress to stay motivated. I've had to face the fact that I'm no spring chicken any more but the way I look at it now is that even if my progress has slowed down, time is still passing and I'm not regressing so I can take that as a huge positive. 😜
