I tried to copy the pose, but didn’t really succeed…lol. My friend told me I shouldn’t post this because it’s hard to compare a candid pic to a selfie (bc generally everyone looks better in selfies) especially with different lighting, but I think regardless I definitely look a LOT better than a month ago. The first pic was taken December 27th & the second picture last night after my workout. There’s about a 15lb difference between the pictures!! I know it’s not totally accurate but it still helps me to see a bit of progress (especially in my arms😳)
Seeing these pictures makes me want to cry. I knew I’d gained weight in the past few months, but I think it was more than I thought. Not that I was much smaller than this.
Getting to where I want to be seems like an impossible, daunting goal, but I know that continuing to eat like shit, not logging my foods, and lacking a proper workout regime will only worsen this situation 👆
I wish that I had supportive people in my life, but I want the confidence, happiness and self love I’ve been lacking for over a decade because of how this body looks, so I have to do it alone.
This summer I’ll be away from these unsupportive people, so I will be able to break free from their junk food and lazy lifestyles.
I am strong, I am fit, I am healthy, but I could work so much harder for my goals than I am working right now.
If there’s any kind of magic in this world, it must be in the attempt of understanding someone, sharing something. I know, it’s almost impossible to succeed. But who cares, really? The answer must be in the attempt.
