BEFORE & AFTER
Tuesday, May 21, 2013 9:29 AM
Today is a very personal day. I have decided to do a before and after shot, b/c I feel perhaps my plateau that I'm in - may end soon for the better or for all I know it might carry on, but I'm going to celebrate today and hopefully inspire some people to celebrate small victories.
5 year transformation and proud of it!
SIDEBAR::I think I might of told you this, but this is how my life went the past 5 years. Worked out all the time, single life to found my long lost lover from high school, fell back in love, moved to GB, gained about 25 lbs. in 7 months (no exaggeration, worked out like once a month - saying alright, I'm gonna do it this time) married, finally moved home to Menominee, prego, and after baby, finally felt like myself again to where I wanted to start working out again for RIZZ.
During my honeymoon (picture #1) 3 1/2 years ago I was a blimp in the sky, then I got blimpier being pregnant for a year. But the thing is, I knew I could lose the baby weight, 3 weeks it took me, (results not typical) but it was the "real" weight that was the hardest and took about 1 1/2 years to lose 20 lbs. I've kept off now for about 2 years. Does my math even add up? But you get it right? So, the past year, I've been making promises to myself and goals and failing, then failing more then succeeding, then eating my feelings and so on. you read me, You know me. But today, I chose to post my before and after. After this weekend, I realized (In picture #2) I have been making progress, whether my scale decides to join me or not. I'd like everyone to step back and take 1-2 things that you have changed for the positive this year, not 2013 meaning, last May, what were you doing. Even if you changed the slightest bit, celebrate it. Life happens. You can't say no to everything. No one likes the weird no carbs, no sugar no alcohol girl. We secretly want her will power, but that's it.
Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Mystery, Today is a Gift, That's why it's called the Present! Chins Up! There will be a rainbow after today's rain!
