If you’ve been following my crazy journey this week, then I think you and I both know it’s high time I remind myself how far I’ve come and the progress I’ve made so far.

In the left picture, I had already lost 20 lbs. I was in a state of disbelief and giddy happiness. I couldn’t believe I’d been able to do it. 20 lbs! I felt body positive and beautiful in that photo. Shocked at what I could accomplish.

Left is me 42 lbs down later. I’ve been struggling the past few months - not able to see my progress, feeling stuck. The scale not where I want it. Things have felt especially frustrating since the holiday season and I find I’ve been picking on myself way more than usual when I look in the mirror.

I’m especially hard on my poor tummy, who definitely doesn’t deserve it because she can hold a plank for 1:10 mins now, do 100 Russian twists, and can do 60 sit-ups all in succession. She can even crunch 85 lbs on the abdominal weight machine at the gym, which is 50 more than she could a year ago. She’s even been working on getting me into a headstand in yoga via tripod pose, which she couldn’t even do a year ago either!

So ya know what? Screw the discouraged feelings and worry! Because I’ve come a damn long way. And it’s only Jan 22nd for goodness’ sake. 

Wake up call, woman! You can do this.

You’ve already done so much already!
