One year ago, I was feeling my age for the first time in my life. I was tired, cranky, in pain, and just miserable to be around. I didn't like my reflection. I didn't like getting dressed, and I SURELY didn't like getting undressed... I DIDN'T LIKE ME!
People say change is scary...I was more afraid of what was going to happen if I DIDN'T change... I was my heaviest I'd been even pregnant. I was 20 pounds heavier than 6 weeks post partum with Gabby who is now 12. If it was 20 pounds this year, was it going to be 30 next year, then 40...when would it stop?
One year ago today I said YES. I said YES to change. I said YES to having fun getting dressed again. I said YES to having the energy to keep up with my kids. 🏃♀️🏃♀️ I said YES to not being disgusted by my own reflection in the mirror. I said YES to a program that taught me that eating healthy 🥗🥦 could fit into my busy lifestyle.
The first picture was August 4, 2016, the 2nd was 10 weeks later in October 2016, and the last pic was taken the end of July 2017. Not only did I lose 22 pounds in that 10 week period, 🤸♀️ 🤳 but I have incorporated SO MANY healthy habits to KEEP IT OFF!!
I thank God and my coach Tiffany for helping me attain what I thought no woman in her late 40's could. Not just a body that I could be comfortable in, but my kids got their mom back, David got his wife back, and I GOT MY LIFE BACK!!! I am loving life again!!! And for that, I am eternally grateful that I said YES!!
