My journey began when I stopped seeking the next "quick fix" to lose weight and realized it was going to take time. Work. Dedication. Commitment. It began when I realized a LIFESTYLE change was what I needed. I had tried sooo many gimmicks before I made this realization. What really needed though was healthy food and exercise, not a short term attempt at a solution. I calorie counted for agggges to make sure I wasn't eating too much or too little. Also, losing weight isn't a "one size fits all" thing. Find what works for YOU! ❤️ ⬇️90+lbs
あらまぁ、なんということでしょう。40キロも減量した彼女は大変身！ アフター写真は誰もが羨む美人マダムになっているではないか！ もはやフォトショだと言われたら信じてしまうレベルの痩せっぷり。こ、これはスゴい……。
9 months difference. I barely recognize myself in the "before" shot.. But if I'm being honest I barely recognize myself in the "current" picture either. Nailed that unimpressed look, eh? Haha.. It was genuine in the "before".. I hated having my picture taken and was noooot happy that my husband was snapping pictures of me. Answering common questions ➡️ I lost weight through calorie counting, eating (mostly) healthy foods, portion control, and some exercise. I'm sure breastfeeding has played a role as well, however until I started everything else I was gaining while nursing. I have done a lot of fast paced walking (while stroller pushing). That has been my main (but not only) form of exercise. Never underestimate the full body workout of pushing a stroller on a rocky surface.. Quite the full body workout with the added resistance ;) I've done the 30 day shred, a ton of stair climbing, and misc other things not as consistently. I'm now at the point of wanting to start focusing on some toning/being a bit more strength focused :) I started my journey in June 2015 at 229ish (high weight was 235.8lb not pregnant, 245 pregnant). I'm 5'5"! Hopefully that answers some of the commonly asked questions :) THANKS FOR THE ONGOING LOVE AND SUPPORT GUYS ❤️❤️❤️❤️ You are all wonderful!
We have been together through SO much, and over the years my body has changed drastically. We started dating when I was 15, and I was in and out of the hospital for an eating disorder and other stuff related to depression. When I was unhealthy, he told me I was beautiful. Fast forward to my first pregnancy, I gained and gained and ended up not losing my pregnancy weight. I was considered obese for 6 years. My struggles with depression continued. He told me I was beautiful. That my body was beautiful, and perfect the way it was. I am now at a healthy weight, and learning to finally accept my body. To LOVE my body. Something I haven't ever really been able to do, and something that will probably be a struggle for me forever.. But one thing that hasn't changed is that HE loves my body. No matter my size, he has loved it, loved ME. Unconditionally. Genuinely. For that I am grateful. ❤️ 3 YEARS!
Accountability: HI IM NOT PERFECT. I ate a ton over the last couple of days while on vacation.. (I don't mean balanced like the beginning of this vacay) Good news is that I've learned to not let a couple days off "track" let me stray away from this healthy lifestyle. A couple of days isn't going to ruin the progress I've made. In my past attempts at losing weight I'd take a few days "off" and it would spiral from there to constant binging and regaining the weight. Not anymore! Enjoyed vacation, but back to it tomorrow!
The face in the first picture accurately depicts my feelings every time I try these on haha. Bringing these bad boys out again.. It's been a while! Size 18 from Old Navy. When I bought these last May/June I had to use a hair elastic to fasten them because they were just TOO TIGHT! (I probably needed a 20?) Trying old clothes on is a great reminder of how far I've come.
