LONG POST WARNING!
Oh boy, I haven't done a #transformationtuesday in a very long time! Well this morning when I got dressed I vividly remembered the picture of myself on the right.
It was taken at the fair in 2012, right at the beginning of grad school. I remember hiding behind those balloons. That flannel was from Target and a size XL, and it was tight! I remembered just feeling like a stuffed sausage!
The girl in that picture was confused, and felt a bit helpless. I hadn't been on a scale and when I did finally step on one that December (2012) I was 192lbs! The heaviest I've ever been! That fall I found @toneitup and started to do the free workouts they had posted, I also started running. A year later I bought the #tiuplan.
It's now been 5 Years following #tiuworkouts and 4 years following the #tiuplan and I'm so happy!
I've gone back and forth with weightloss and weight gain (going from single to a relationship will do that to ya! 😂😂) but I feel like I really know my body now and know how to feed it and take care of it!
I'm currently around 173lbs and feeling good! The smallest I've been on the plan was 153lbs, but to be honest, I was working out ALL THE TIME and really restricting my food (and all I did was workout, go to work, workout, repeat). I feel like I have so much more balance now. And I really like how my body looks and feels around 163-165lbs so my current goal is to get to that near December 😄 I've ran 3 Half Marathons, several 5ks, and even a 19.3 mile challenge weekend! The #tiuplan and #tiucommunity are the best! Thank you @karenadawn and @katrinaascott for helping me find myself 😍😘 #tiugirls #tiu21 #tiu21repchallenge #tiulifestyle #tiumeals #tiuplan #tiuworkout #tiutransformation #tiutransformationtuesday #transformationtuesday #fitness #fitfam #weightlossjourney @toneitup #tiuseattle
