2015 me vs. 2017 me 🌟I’ve always had issues with maintaining my weight, even as an athlete. 🏊🏽♀️ I’m not perfect and have not always been thin. It took a LOT of hard work, sweat 💦 and tears to get to where I am right now. My weight has fluctuated from 135 (the lowest) & 190 (the highest I ever weighed). 🌟The picture on the left, I was miserable, would eat anything and everything in sight. I did no physical activity whatsoever and lived a highly sedentary lifestyle. Of course, there were factors and personal things that contributed to me getting to this point... but I could not stress how much I felt depressed and was constantly suicidal (yes, suicidal)! I hated the way I looked, even more so, the way I felt. 🌟Christmas Day of 2015 (no joke!) is when I decided to make a change for myself. My goal was to get to that “small” number of 135 that I was once in high school. Throughout the journey, I learned to love and care for my body even more. I was very cruel and harsh to myself, even when I was the “itty bitty” 135. I learned what clean eating looked like & most importantly, to own my fitness journey. I didn’t have to be perfect, nor will I ever be. But at least I’m working on myself. 🌟A little shy of three years since hitting rock-bottom (for me that is), I have completely transformed my mindset. I have gained confidence and have learned to love my body, dimples and all. Nobody is perfect, but OWN WHERE YOU ARE. The biggest step that helped me overcome my insecurity is learning to love my body where I’m at 💕 Weighing 135 is no longer my goal anymore 😂 I’ve increased in lean body mass compared when I weighed 135 pounds eight years, but not only that, I am STILL the same size! 😧 🌟Numbers don’t define who you are. We are all on our personal journey... whether you’re trying to lose weight, bulk up, shred or gain muscle. OWN IT! I didn’t get to where I am today by sulking and being depressed and NOT DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT. I challenge you to make one goal towards your health journey today. You won’t regret it.
