Transformation Tuesday! Left is at the start of my journey at 198 pounds, on one of my first 4 mile walks. Right is now at 136 pounds. -62 pounds. I know what it’s like to feel broken down, tired and worthless. I hid my fear and emotions behind processed, junk food and drinking pretending to be something I wasn’t. Deep down I was depressed and didn’t think my life amounted to anything so I didn’t try and never wanted to try ever again. I didn’t want to face reality, but in September 2012 it struck me. I was 200 pounds at my heaviest, I was obese, I was sick, my unhealthy habits led to having my appendix removed after a weeklong binge, I was a heavy drinker and smoker, my eczema was the worst it had ever been in my life and I couldn’t ride a bike down the street to save my life. But besides all the physical health problems I was having, inside is where it hurt the most. I was severely depressed, I slept all day long and had no goals or ambitions, I just wanted it all to be over. I was so vastly unhappy and desperately wanted to change. I realized what my life had become and I wanted no part of it anymore. This was not the person I had wanted to be and felt deep shame for letting it come to this point. After a night of crying myself to sleep after seeing photos of myself from that night and realizing all of this, I wanted to change and needed to change for myself this time. I’ve struggled with my weight my whole life, but always lost it for someone else’s benefit, only to gain it back and start the cycle of self-hate and self-doubt. In September 2012, I cut out all junk from my life, started drinking a gallon of water a day (I never drank water before), eating clean, juicing, and working out. There is no secret or fad diet that will make you change, only you can do that for yourself. Eating real foods, drinking water, exercise, determination and consistency will get you to where you want and need to be. To this date I have lost over 60 pounds, got rid of my eczema permanently, I’m getting stronger every day and the most important aspect is I am finally happy. I’ve put an end to my vicious self-hate and self-doubt cycle and not only am I happier and healthier, I love myself. I do not want anyone else to feel the way I have felt. Stop hating and doubting yourself! You can do anything you put your mind to, really, you can. You can achieve greatness.

When I started #HammerandChisel I wasn’t sure what to expect. With food neophobia and a history of inconsistent workouts, the only thing that was different this time around was my mindset to not let excuses get in the way. I trusted the process, I trusted my coach, and now I’m halfway through the program and I’ve lost 7 inches and I’m down 9lbs which has only sharpened my focus for the next half. I’m excited for the changes to come so the next time I post a progress shot, it will be in 4 weeks at the finish line.

My first progress picture of my 21 Day Fix has arrived!! In the picture on the left, I had just gotten over what was basically a 3 day binge. I was feeling bloated, unmotivated, and altogether yucky. The picture on the right is just 1 week of clean eating and exercising, and I feel energized, motivated, and confident as ever!

1 week down, 2 more to go! 👍 😁 👏

I swear that one of these days I will actually post up a full body shot (my phone is crap and my roomies are asleep when I think to get one done). At any rate, these are my “before” and “after” photos so far since I started losing weight. I have lost close to 90 lbs since I started (285 lbs before and 296.4 lbs now).

I started out as many others did…an infomercial! It was late at night after working 2nd shift and I decided to call up and order Insanity after seeing the program on tv. Man, that was the first step towards where I am now. After Insanity I started drinking Shakeology and seeing a personal trainer to weight lift with my roommate. I also went to the doctor and had a full physical for the first time in my life. From that I discovered I had food allergies, was given help with my nutrition and diet, and now I am here and focused on losing the next 20 to 30 pounds before I start to become satisfied (I want to focus on my overall health and body fat percentage and not my BMI).

This week I am starting Piyo and have loaned out Insanity to a friend. I also have Rockin Body and Hip-Hop Abs (because they are fun and were cheap). I also have to get the garage cleared out so that I can use the punching bag/speed bag combo when I need to get rid of some stress.

It’s been a meal prep extravaganza today!! I think I am set for the week! Parmesan Panko Chicken, meatballs, baked eggplant, sautéed broccoli, baked sweet potatoes and pasta! It just makes the week ahead so much easier to have my meals prepped! I don’t get to cook this much every weekend but I do always have a plan for the week ahead. It keeps me on track and my family gets healthy meals too! Prepping and drinking Shakeology to give me energy! #healthiestmealoftheday #shakeology #21DFX meatballs and the eggplant recipe is from a challenger in my accountability group! There are so many amazing recipes shared in the group. I highly recommend meal prepping! #mealprep #mealprepsunday #cleaneating #eatclean #fitness #21dayfix #GetYourFix #food #fitness #feelgood #beachbody #beachbodycoach #teambeachbody #getfit #weightloss #healthy #healthyfoods

Day 30 of insanity max 30.

I have officially lost 7.3 pounds. I have lost 10 inches all over my body. I am just so happy with the results from just 30 days. I can’t wait for the end of the 60 days.
Thank you to all my followers for always keeping me motivated. I love you all!!! :)

I’m not going to lie, this is difficult for me. It’s difficult to look at these photos and see how much I’ve let myself go. It’s hard to believe that I was healthy and fit just a few years ago. These photos hurt me. They remind me of my past that I try so hard to forget. All the times I’ve ever been called fat or ugly or just had someone laugh at me for the way I look. But enough is enough. I’m done with all the negativity in my life. I’m done with the excuses and just plain being lazy. I don’t want to look this way anymore. I want to look and feel beautiful. I want to surround myself with positivity and courage. Because let’s face it, changing your lifestyle and habits is hard. It takes strength and courage to make that huge change in your life. And I’m ready to make that change. I’m ready to be beautiful on the outside and inside. So these are my BEFORE photos. They are also a promise to myself that I will never look this way again. A vow to myself that I will embrace this new journey that will last a lifetime. I will trust and follow this path to wherever it takes me; beyond my dreams and goals, to transform my new life, so I can become the new and better me. If you are ready to make the change, too, I am here for you. Let’s do this together. Message me when you’re ready. I’ll be waiting. 💪💜👍 #teambeachbody #beachbody #sysof #setyoursoulonfire #coach #21dayfix #PiYo #shakeology #accountability #beforephotos #health #fitness #journey #courage #strength #icandothis #youcantoo #beauty #beautiful #challengegroup #letmehelpyou
