Losing weight is HARD, being overweight is HARD, PICK YOUR HARD 👊
I was already 30 pounds overweight when I became pregnant with my second son and then I gained an additional 60... I used pregnancy as an excuse to eat anything I wanted. As I got towards the end of my pregnancy, I even started restricting carbs because I didn't want to gain anymore weight. I was so disgusted and ashamed that I let myself gain that much weight. I remember the day that picture on the left was taken so well because it took me over 2 hours just to leave the house. I was so uncomfortable and just wanted to layer on the clothes to try to hide my body. I was literally depressed when I should have been so happy & enjoying my new baby 😣
I was determined to get the weight off no matter how long it took. I started with walking a few days a week, then adding 25 minute Beachbody workouts 5 days a week, and started tracking what I ate. I was breastfeeding so I had to be careful to not restrict calories or carbs too much. I looked at motivational quotes and weight loss transformation pictures everyday. I got some friends to be my accountability buddies and we would text each other when we finished our workouts. This is when I realized how important accountability was and surrounding yourself with positive people that believe in you 💕 .
When I lost most of the weight, coaching was introduced to me & now I get to help women that were exactly where I was and feel just like I felt in that picture on the left. I'm surrounded by this community of women empowering women. Talk about rewarding ❤ .
