I came across this picture from a few years ago and decided to do a different kind of #transformationtuesday . I remember being so excited in the picture on the left because I could see my abs and I was getting so much praise!! Now it makes me sad. Little did I, or anyone else, realize the ED I struggled with for over a decade was still alive and thriving. I looked sick, and I was. Looking back, the only reason you could see my muscles was because I had barely any body fat. I was NOT healthy. At that point, I was following the workouts PLUS doing 60-90 min of cardio almost daily (of my own accord), was OBSESSED with seeing results, and I was not yet following the #tiunutritionplan . I was eating Greek yogurt or cottage cheese with fruit and drinking protein shakes. Basically, doing the opposite of what TIU stands for and what I should have been doing. Once I started adhering to the guidelines of the #tiuplan and actually EATING (#carbsarelife ) and doing only the workouts listed on the weekly schedule, it was a game changer! Fast forward to this year-- I'm a little fluffier right now than I want to be, but I'm HAPPY and HEALTHY (Okay, I could eat more veggies 🙄🙊😆) and PROUD and so grateful I'm not where I was. I owe so much to @toneitup and this team for opening my eyes to what being fit and healthy and loving myself really means and the knowledge the #tiunutritionplan taught me 🙌🏼💪🏼❤️ To say @karenakatrina and this community helped save me 🙏🏼 would be an understatement.
I am so looking forward to the #tiubikiniseries and getting fitter and stronger (and tanner 👻🙈☀️) the right way with all of you bombshells by my side! 👙👯💕😽 #tiuteam #tiutransformation #gainingweightiscool #tiugirl #tiuflorida #toneitup @toneitup
Ps- I'm thinking about writing a blog post about my history with EDs so if you have any questions feel free to DM me. I want to make sure anyone who comes across my page knows she is worth so much more than a number on a scale or the bones or muscles in her body showing and while she may think she's in control, she's not. There IS a better way. God has bigger plans for her. And I know it's scary, but she's stronger than she thinks. 💛
