Left is from fall 2014, and the right was taken a couple weeks ago. The left picture I was sad af… even though then I was working out at least 4 days a week, My boyfriend at the time treated me like shit and constantly put my looks down because I wasn’t losing weight/toning up fast enough for his liking. He reminded me on a daily basis that I was fat, and would tell me I needed to do something about it.
I became so insanely hard on myself, I felt worthless, I was depressed and heartbroken, and I lost most of my motivation to continue feel really good about myself, which resulted in me not working out anymore. If it isn’t obvious between the two pictures, I have gained weight since then. I worked so hard at finding self worth and love, and since doing so I feel way better about myself, I feel more confident (although I do still have my days where I don’t like certain things about my body), and every day I’m finding things about myself to love more.
I feel that I’m finally at that point in my life that I’m ready to take things back. I’ll likely get back into the whole “fit for me” thing and get back into working out again… now I just need better motivation that I can stick to.
