This is so deep I’m gonna reevaluate my life
8 month transformation, 25 pounds lost. Im not where I want to be but Im happy to see progress. I am no longer embarrassed to look at myself in the mirror. Yes I am embarrassed to post my before picture, but I realize that that is not who I am and I have worked to hard to feel and look better.
The before picture is from my 20th birthday (I turn 23 next month), and I have to say the most important thing my 20s have taught me so far is how to properly take care of myself, both physically and mentally. I learned just how important eating nutritious food is for your body, both inside and out. I learned that while I may not be coordinated enough for sports, I’m pretty athletic and enjoy things like running and lifting weights. I learned that there is no need to keep people in your life who only add drama and negativity and don’t support you. I learned that there are going to be tough times, that’s life, but those tough times will pass and getting through them is easier with a positive attitude. Most importantly I learned that you really need to love yourself, no matter what shape or size you may be, because at the end of the day you’re gonna be stuck with yourself for the rest of your life so you may as well be your own best friend and someone you can be proud of.
OK this is kind of embarrassing. The 1st pic is when I weighed over 200lbs. The second pic is a recent one (taken 5/29/14).This is a great reminder of how far I have come.
