After a few weeks of rest and just light weights I feel completely recharged and ready to hit it hard next week. The time off has been challenging and nerve racking but it is what the body needed. It better be ready because it's almost go time! #recharged#letsgetit
Helloooo HAPPINESS 💕 Started my morning early at 7:00 am and drank about 3 cups of warm lemon water! (It really is helping out my skin, digestion, and metabolism) I’m finally having my coffee now and feeling super cozy and excited to move back in for my LAST SEMESTER OF UNDERGRAD!?!? I’m so determined to make it my best one yet. There will never be another time when I can have all my lovely friends in the same place at once 24/7 I’ll probs be crying every weekend it makes me so sad, but I know I’ll be off to bigger and better things 🌎 #cozymorning#lastsemester#determined
On the left... I was my heaviest ever; over 400 pounds; I was insecure, I hated myself for letting myself go but never found it in me to do something about it. I hated clothes shopping because I could never find clothes that fit... I would cry every time I got in the shower, I was ashamed of who I had become. Even then it took about another 2 years of damaging my body before I got it together. It’s been 17 months since I began my journey and I wouldn’t trade it for the world; 17 months ago my body fat was 54.7% of me, today I’m down to 40.2%. I was using size 28 jeans, today I’m proudly wearing size 18. The changes aren’t only physical but mental too. I feel secure of myself, and while my body will never be perfect because i damaged it so much; i love it! It’s a representation of my struggles and battles. As a chronic depressed eater, who battles daily, I’m proud of how far I’ve come along. The journey hasn’t been easy but it’s been most definitely worth it. If you’re struggling; just remember that you’re capable of doing it, don’t give up! You got this! Happy Friday!🖤 #Face2FaceFriday#F2FFriday#WeightLossTransformation#LifeTransformation#Changes#LifeChanges#WeightLossDiary#WeightLossJourney#NoExcuses#WeightLoss#WeightLossJournal2019#Motivated#MyStory#Inspired#Determined#Fitness#FitnessJourney#FitJourney#GymLife#GymJunkie#Workout
Before I lost weight, I was never partying crazy or smoking or anything like that...but I was always turning to food to solve my problems. Whether it was my marriage, my family, work, stress, I let food comfort me because it was the only thing I felt that gave me peace🤦🏽♀️ But I was just lying to myself and letting problems disappear under the rug instead of facing them! I became tired, stressed, unfocused, feeling unworthy, and so much more 😞
I started looking for a different way, setting time aside to exercise, investing in my health 🍃, and teaching myself to withstand storms! Becoming a completely different You takes work! Work that most people don’t want to put in because “ they don’t have time or money”. But I was so fed up and decided the work would be worth it if I get to be the version of myself I want to be! And I was willing to bet on myself!!! 💯 #determined

✨From unmotivated, self conscious, doubtful, and hesitant— To determined, positive, hopeful and open.✨
This opportunity has changed me. Changed me for the better. I was always the girl who made excuses, doubted myself, & lived with regret every day for not truly LIVING every day to the fullest. I regretted not using this or that day as my day 1. I always said, “I’ll start next week”, and boy, did I put it off even more.
Coaching has pushed me & made me put myself out there, but you don’t truly grow if you are not stepping out of your comfort zone. I have grown in so many ways. I have an amazing sisterhood of women who support each other in our goals, I have people holding me accountable daily- and truly reminding me of my “why” I do this. I have a daughter watching me and learning from everything I do. Health and fitness is so important physically, mentally, and emotionally. I am loving this happier & healthier me. I am becoming the best mom, friend, and girlfriend that I want to be. The positivity this has brought me just radiates. PLUS- I get to help other girls feel this same way and truly find themselves and the spark they’ve been longing for.
