I took a leap... leap of faith after trying so many "diets" nothing stuck! I wish I knew before that a quick fix wasn't the answer. You know what was the answer.... letting go of my ego, letting go of my pride of not wanting others help, letting go of my trust issues of someone who genuinely saw the silent cry of help, and letting go of doubt. It was about finding myself through this journey of hard work and determination. These results are not to boast myself at all or think I'm perfect (far from it). I post these pictures to not just see how far along I have came through this journey, but I post in hopes that my story reaches out to even ONE person. As women we have a hard time being happy and we are our worst critique. So we find whatever it takes to look like the girl you compare yourself in magazines. I am here to tell you we have to stop playing the comparison game... we should love ourselves no matter what... You should love other women and not judge them because of who they are or what they wear or what their body shape is. This picture is not just a physical comparison but it's so much more than that. I have become a better person just from a healthy lifestyle change. I have learned to love myself and I have learned to listen to the beautiful people and understand them. So do yourself a favor and wake up tomorrow and everyday and kickass! Message 5 of your gal friends and tell them how badass they are! Continue to be the best version of yourself ALWAYS!
