Before I started this weight loss journey of mine I was always the girl who would try and hide myself with my clothing.
2 or 3 shirts, scarfs, jackets, jeans... anything to cover me up and (hopefully) help me blend in and not be noticed.
Before I started my weight loss journey, all I wanted was to be able to wear a tank top and shorts and feel comfortable and confident.
Before I started my weight loss journey, all I wanted was a fast, quick fix to help me lose the weight without having to really do any work.
I wished, and hoped and prayed I would find an answer to changing my weight and help me feel happier in my own skin.
And it wasn't until January 2014 that I gave up searching for a quick fix and decided to do things the good 'ol fashion way.
Exercise and clean eating 🙌🏻
I worked out daily at home and started fueling my body with healthy (yet oh so delicious) foods and month after month, I fell more in love with the journey.
For me, it was a competition with myself month after month to be better than I was the prior month.
Whether it meant losing more weight, doing more reps, using heavier weights, or fitting into smaller clothing (or even feeling better in my clothing).
And when I finally discovered that taking time to do things the right way, and stop trying to rush the process, is when I started to learn that I actually loved working out and eating right, because in turn, I FELT BETTER AFTER 🙊 Crazy concept, right? 😂🙌🏻♥️
It's not a race, it's a journey.
A long journey.
Full of ups, downs, bumps and turns.
But be patient with it, trust it, and never give up! ♥️👏🏻
You will be amazed at what you can accomplish 😍👌🏻
