For those of you that have been following me a while, you know that I like to share my progress photos from time to time. It's a good reminder to me of how far I've come and it motivates me (and hopefully you) to keep pushing and remember why I started this.
Do you know how long it took me to finally start seeing some noticeable differences in myself? A looooong time, longer than it should have. Lemme tell you why.
When I first started this journey (hate calling it that cuz it's so cliche sounding, but that's exactly what it is) I was hungry. And I'm not speaking in terms of hunger for food. I was unhappy with how I looked and how I felt. I wanted to walk shirtless on the beach with confidence. I wanted to be able to go to a pool party and make everyone do a double take. I wanted to feel good with how I looked. Don't get me wrong, I was never the type to let the disappointment in my physique prevent me from having fun and still going to the beach and pool parties. I just didn't feel great about myself when I did those things. I wanted more and I was going to do everything in my power to make a change.
But oh how quick we are to give up, make excuses and find reasons to quit. I would bust my ass in the gym and diet like a maniac for a week or two and I'd look in the mirror and see the exact same dude from a couple weeks ago looking back at me. Seemed like there was little to no change. So, I'd say "screw this, why am I killing myself with diet and training if it's making so little of a difference". And I'd quit until the next time I had a little more motivation to start all over.
Left: 280lbs. Working out hard 5-6 days a week at around 2-3 hours per workout. Little/no knowledge of nutrition.

Right: 250lbs. (Not current) Working out hard 5-6 days a week at around 1-1.5 hours per workout. Daily calculated diet to help me reach my goals. It was at this time I FINALLY realized my body was undergoing some serious change. Granted, I made significant changes prior to this photo, but due to my overly self-critical nature, it took me forever to actually notice the positive change. My guess is 4 years between the two photos.

Good morning. Please check out my friend @missfitness_mummyrolo and show her some love. -
Rowena is a single mother of twins and her story will blow you away. She is lucky to be with us here today after many complications and now her twins are happy and healthy. She is dedicating her life to raising two amazing children and getting fit. Truly a remarkable story. -
Rowena has definitely become a fit Mummy. 🔥🔥

When you think you are in it alone and there's nobody to believe in you, you'll be surprised to know that you, yourself will be the inspiration you seek. Dig deep, be dedicated and the results you see will lead you to the path of self inspiration.
I know how hard it is everyday, to push past all the negativity and continue to be passionate about my fitness. Stay positive, focused and dedicated and prove to yourself that you can achieve your fitness goals and let nothing stop you in your path!
Due to the overwhelming responses I have received with this picture on Insta story the other day, I'm sharing it again. Thank you so much🙏🏼❤
Stay focused and dedicated!

Who's ready for summer '17? 🐳🌴🌞💦

Me in new style😂 I miss my long hair😢 #PrettyMe#LoveMyself#NewStyle#NewMe#HairCut#Chalo#ByeBye#

Before Weight 236lbs - Feb 20th, 2017
After Weight 194lbs - May 20th, 2017
Total Weight Shed 42lbs (hopefully of just fat 🤣)
By far the largest transformation I have ever experienced.. I am more pumped then you know to be able to show this off. If I can provide even a fraction of motivation to the next person looking to drop some very much unwanted lbs, I did my job. .
Above is a combination of weight training 5x's/week, cardio the last month for 30mins/ daily (walking the dog, stairs, it all counts). AND of course diet, it's the situations where you go out with all your friends and order plain chicken breasts with veggies and rice with absolutely nothing on it.. and of course hot sauce on the side 🤤. With a water or Diet Coke and 0 alcohol. These are decisions that make you the new you, it's never too late to start. Hell, Start Today! 🤘🏼
Always open and willing to provide advice & guidance, reach out to me anytime you like 💪🏽

What a lovely day with my princess. When summer hits it comes with a bang.... sweaty boobs, and a feeling of constantly wondering if it's possible to melt 😂☀️. I love being #British and I love English #summertime. I'm looking forward to the rain we will probably get in a weeks rkmw, after all I like a bit of variety 😂

How much change just over a month can do to you so much work and training and a lot more to come with more gains on the way and another step closer to my goal bring on the more hardwork #gains💪 #newme #progress #bodyunderconstruction #protein #fitness #mentalhealthawareness #gymlife

So I did my #weightloss dance today...officially 4 stone lighter thanks to #keto. My dietician did a double-take when he saw me in the reception area waiting... I am over the moon. Half-way there 🖒
