bikini comp prep

It’s amazing what a little effort & determination can do 🙌 Today I’m officially 20kgs less than my highest weight, I don’t think I’ve been this tiny since I was about 15, and I’ve sure as hell never had abs like this!! Pretty bloody stoked at how my comp prep is tracking, can’t wait to see what my amazing coach gets out of me in another 10 weeks when I hit the stage!

I have recived a lot of questions about why I dropped my calorie goal. I am adjusting as my body changes. I found that I was not needing 1800-2000 calories anymore, my body was not feeling good. I have dropped to 1,600 and my body feels more balanced and ready to burn through food, rather than feeling slow and full on a regular basis. I am always adjusting as I feel the need. Maybe my body will need more in a few weeks, but I have felt a lot better since making the cut.

Posting another transformation picture since it’s my weekly check in, but I don’t have any good pictures to compare so I’ll change it up this week :)

On the left, was my first ever progress picture I posted, I think that it was in July. I remember being so proud, and in the best shape I had ever been in.

On the right, is three weeks into my bikini comp prep. I am so much healthier now, than I ever was. I am no longer binging, restricting, or obsessing over food like I was on the left. And I eat 5-6 times a day and drink a gallon+ of water a day. I love myself more than over and for once in my life I am confident in my own skin. Being healthy means more than being physically healthy. Mental health, is much more important.

So to those who say I am “too skinny”, to “eat a cheeseburger” that I “need to gain a few pounds” - Go. Fuck. Yourself. I am happy, confident, and working my ass off to accomplish my dreams and that’s all one can wish for for their life. And it’s a hell of a lot more than what you can say about yours while you send someone else hate.
