Thought I’d post a Transformation Tuesday since I’ve been struggling with my body image for the last few weeks. I held on to these jeans for 2 years hoping that some day I’d fit into them again. Spent my summer running and biking in rain or shine with that goal and by the end of summer they where to baggy to wear. These jeans are 14’s, I am now a 6. I still hang on to these jeans as a reminder of how far I’ve come.
You are allowed to feel frustrated. You are allowed to feel stuck. And you are also allowed to feel proud.
This transformation did not happen overnight, it has been 5 years of work. My journey has been a physical, mental, emotional, and social roller coaster. It’s has not been easy but it is one of my proudest accomplishments. My weight loss (and muscle building) has been slow, then stopped, then backslid, then creeped forward a little more.
There were weeks were I was motivated as hell, others where I went through the motions, and some where I completely fell off track AND I STILL FOUND SUCCESS.
Remember why you started and love yourself a little more each day.
