โ€ข๐Ÿ’›20 years old: Mix of binge eating followed by days of "cleansing" aka: not eating. I never worked out, but I never thought I was "thin enough". I could see my ribs, but that was always my goal. Back then, I NEVER thought my outlook was unhealthy.
โ€ข๐Ÿ’›23 years old: just had a baby, gained 95 pounds. If you've ever met me, you know I have a VERY small frame. Simple daily actions like walking up and down the stairs felt difficult and exhausting. I went on a diet and consumed only 20 grams of carbs/day (I did this for 2 years straight, and yes I was VERY strict about those 20 grams). This was unhealthy! For the next 10 years, I couldn't find balance. Bottom line: I wasn't happy.
โ€ข๐Ÿ’›36 years old: I'm not striving to "see my ribs", or get a "thigh gap", or a "bikini bridge". I'm certainly not trying to get rid of a "hip dip" either. Seriously, who comes up with these damn beauty standards? ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ I'm happy, I eat intuitively and work out regularly. I'm not trying to achieve a physical goal, I'm enjoying life. I fell in love with fitness when I stopped paying attention to the trends. ๐Ÿ’–I don't need to prove to anyone that I'm "real". I don't need to take a highly unflattering photo and post it captioning "look at me, I'm imperfect, I'm real, I love my flaws,..." Honestly, I'm here to tell you this: Strength FEELS great! ๐Ÿ†Body image trends will come and go, ignore them! Be motivated and inspired by what you can do, rather than by how you look. Life is too short to worry about all the petty stuff. If you're here for fitness motivation, then have faith, and take it from me: you CAN do it! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸฝFitness should be about health and strength. You've got one life, take control and give it your best effort. Screw the beauty standards, don't lose your focus: get up, work out, eat healthy, FEEL the strength, and do it for YOU!๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ’–-

#transformationtuesday today with my beautiful in every single way sister โค๏ธ
9 years between us but we are like twins. We shared our food issues massively, we were food partners in crime. Eating for pure indulgence and greed every day. It is SO hard to change your mentality. To change when your issues are that bad you have to change your perception of and your relationship with food. It doesn't happen overnight but that's ok. Don't expect to join @slimmingworld and have the discipline of lots of us target members here on Instagram, don't be negative about yourself if you have a bad day. Change is ALL in your attitude. What's eaten cannot be uneaten, it's done, move on, focus on improving your ability to stick to plan. ๐Ÿ‘Œ
I touched on it a little in my live on Sunday. When I joined SW for the first two and a half months or so after weigh in (used to be a Tuesday evening), myself and my sister would get a takeaway and eat junk. Not massive amounts, just a fix of the food we had relied on and been so addicted to for so many years. At that point we needed that. I didn't want to be 'missing out'. I very soon realised how different I felt putting that food in my body and stopped, not going over my syns after weigh in. My sister at first just thought I was saying that I felt horrible but then she experienced the same thing, realised she didn't need that food and loved how she felt on plan. It takes time for our attitudes to change, just do what you feel able to with the day in front of you. Logic isn't always easy to focus on when you have your own relaistonship with food to tear down and rebuild. If logic was easy to follow we would all be slim, eat less, eat healthily and move more. How many times have us who have been overweight heard that; usually from someone slim being patronising and having no clue what it is like to have issues with food. ๐Ÿคš
Myself and my sister failed with countless weight loss attempts but that doesn't matter. You need to forget what's done, move on, ONE DAY AT A TIME. That's the logic that got us through what we have achieved - stay on plan everyday, your willpower will develop! I am SO proud of you @cginner_x ๐Ÿ’– #slimmingworld

I would like to thank puberty and my conscience for telling me to not wear Vineyard Vines anymore !! (SWIPE!โžก๏ธ)
You can repost, just give me credit!

The only reason to look back is to see how far you've come๐Ÿ’• There arent enough words to help describe how happy I am to go from the girl that avoids sports by any means possible (and I do mean any๐Ÿ˜‚) to the girl that found her peace in the gym๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป Keep working, eat good, stay consistent and the results will come๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Reminding myself that when I want something bad enough, there is no stopping me ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ
The last few months I wanted different things (life experiences, pizza etc) but I'm ready to get lean again. I've no plans to compete again but I'm ready to prove that I can live my life while progressing with my physique ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

I am not what happened to me.
I am what I choose to become ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Avocados are the perfect choice for a healthy breakfast (on toast is great) or as a snack anytime. They contain vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta-carotene and omega-3 fatty acids. #transformationtuesday #gethealthy #healthiswealth

That girl on the ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿผ: Insecure, Always wearing less form fitting clothes to hide my mid section, drinking more alcohol then I should, not consuming anything healthy, not drinking enough H20, not working out at all. .
That girl on the ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ: Confident, Happy with herself, Drinking an abundant amount of water, fueling herself with a 80/20 life style, drinking maybe twice a month, and learning what works with her body (because we are all different)
We all have that ONE picture of yourself that makes your JAW hit the floor and you say to yourself "I need to make a change" and this is the picture for me (on the ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿผ). Now, the only thing is sometimes we say it, but don't do it. .
Here's a tip: DO IT! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Today is a great day to start on you - I spend time every morning just walking through my day on what I want to achieve, how can I make some feel better or happy today and where can I learn and improve.

#transformationtuesday here I am (on the right close to 260lbs) 4 years ago at the beach with my daughter.. I had been working out a little before she was born but I wasn't all that into it or disciplined. With the birth of my daughter it flipped a switch in my head that I need to start to be better on every way possible, so that's when I started being more disciplined and trying to do better not only in the gym. Me now (on the left no 184 lbs) not where I want to be but way better than I used to be. #family #transform #better #getfit #neverstopworking

Vulnerable post alert:
When I look at these pictures I don't really see a difference. Honestly when I started this program, I was expecting to see more results after a week. Why? Because everyone was raving about the program and the test group results. But I felt like I wasn't seeing progress and was picking myself apart.
But this morning I woke up with a completely different mindset! It's only the end of week ONE and there are TWO more weeks to go. If the program was supposed to have big immediate changes, it wouldn't need to be three weeks.
My question is why do we pick ourselves apart? Why do we treat ourselves differently than we treat others? Because I guarantee if this was someone else's post I would say "you're killing it" "you look awesome". But yesterday, I was finding my flaws. Today, I was starting to see the person I've become. I wasn't looking for flaws, I was seeing this strong woman who has begun to change her mindset.
So I challenge you on this #transformationtuesday to be kinder to yourself, to give yourself pep talks, to love YOURSELF everyday. #maketheshift #mentalandphysical

Transformation Tuesday... Hey friends! I wanted to share a photo of myself for today's #transformationtuesday No filters were used... The pic on the left was my face before starting Beautycounter. The pic on the right was taken in the same place, same lighting... After using our charcoal bar for 2 weeks, the brightening collection set for just a week, and immediately after using the brightening mask for 10 minutes!!

I can give you the unique skin care recommendations you need! In the process, you will be switching to safer and effective skin care, with no toxic ingredients to worry about!
