As I took this photo, I thought to myself “I wonder when I’ll learn to love my thighs and curvy hips…”
And then I looked from the photo to the mirror back and forth a couple times. Instead of seeing parts I hated, I saw motivation. And hard work. And strength.
This body has gone through some insane changes that I am so proud to have accomplished after years of neglecting my health. And how dare I make myself believe that all of that effort still isn’t good enough?
I have lost 50 pounds. FIFTY. I have fallen in love with strength training and am already starting to see improvements after only 2 months. I have also fallen in love with cooking, and meal prep, and baking healthy things. I have completely changed my life and I am and will continue to be so immensely proud of myself.
