This is why I say DITCH THE SCALE!! IT LIES!!! This first picture is from 2011.... I weighed 120 pounds 6 months after baby #1. I may appear "fit," but I was actually far from it! I lost all the baby weight quickly because I was working 50-60 hour work weeks, had no time to eat and lived off Venti lattes morning, noon and night.
This second picture is from 2014... weighing in at 140 pounds 6 months after baby #2. This was my heaviest and completely outside my comfort zone. I was still working long hours, but this time, I was using food as my emotional comfort. I was stressed, overworked, trying to figure out how to parent TWO KIDS and balance it all. My emotional and mental struggles are actually what prompted me to start taking care of myself. I knew that I needed to start with ME in order to improve the other parts of my life.
And now, this third picture is from 2018... weighing in at 135 pounds.... only 5 pounds lighter than my most unhealthy moment and yet I feel AMAZING!
I have learned how to eat proper and eat clean. In fact, i eat more now than I did back then. I exercise regularly and I am constantly challenging myself. I may have started modifying, but I just kept pushing to see what my body was capable of.
I may be 15 pounds heavier than that first picture, but I am healthy, I am finally confident in my own skin and I am happy!! I have found balance with food, where I still enjoy my glass of wine or an occasional piece of dessert and NOT feel guilty about it!!! If you want to find this balance and feel confident in your own skin again, give me a 👍 below or shoot me a message for more information on how you can get there too!!!
