10 months ago I thought I was happy. I thought I had the answers to getting healthy. I thought I knew how much to eat to lose weight. I thought I was at an okay weight for my height. I've lost weight before and gained it all back plus some. .
Then I thought, what if I'm missing something, what if I've got this all wrong? To tell you the truth, I was missing everything and telling myself lies! Telling myself "I'm fine, I'm supposed to be a big girl" "oh I guess I just have to wear my husband's clothes now because nothing else fits, that's ok." NO!! It wasn't ok, it still isn't ok. My way of thinking was not ok! I told myself time and time again that I need to do the work I need to lose weight. The truth was, I just wasn't ready. I wasn't ready for the commitment, the dedication, the reality of my situation. I flat out was NOT READY! .
Looking at these pictures with only 10 months in between them has my jaw on the floor. Yes I only started my journey 3 months ago but what a freaking journey it's been this far! And do you know why? Because I changed my mindset. I changed the way I thought of things. I may not have been ready to change but I changed. I changed my mindset, I changed my Outlook on my life, I changed the people I surround myself with. I CHANGED! 10 months ago I was a different person then I am now. Hell 3 months ago I was a completely different person. I didn't start some crazy new fad diet, I didn't start taking a weightloss pill, I didn't start depriving myself of food, I didn't start working myself to the bone with workouts. I created balance for myself. I started following a nutrition plan and workout programs to work my entire body. I started focusing on my health and my families health. I started putting in the work every single day, even when I didn't want to. The point is, I STARTED! .
Many people are often afraid or skeptic of what it is that I do. They see the hard work it takes to be healthy and they run for the hills. Let me tell you, this is no walk in the park. The workouts are hard, the nutrition is hard. But being unhappy is hard, being overweight is hard, being unhealthy is hard. We get to choose our hard. 👇🏼finished in comments👇
