When at this point.. #TransformationTuesday isn't solely about the size of your body, but the size of your smile.
What I've learned along the way that the mental aspect of this journey is just as hard, perhaps even harder, than the physical aspect.
You can force yourself to workout or eat clean.. but if you don't do it with the foundation because you care for yourself or love your body.. those actions won't become habits.. and those habits won't become a lifestyle.
I rollercoastered with my weight for years because along with hating myself, I'd try to lose weight for all the wrong reasons (validation from others, the "maybe I'll be attractive then", to "no longer be the fat friend", the list goes on).
I was also under the impression and had this insane idea that once I lost a certain amount of weight I'd then be happy... as if that was what would give me true happiness -- SO not the case. Looking back now, how does that even make sense?
So you go on hating yourself and your body for years... and continue to hate it as you lose 60 pounds... once you hit 'goal' -- all that hate is apparently going to vanish? No. It's not.
What I've learned in the last 8 months is hating your body will never get you as far as loving it will.
We're in our bodies for a while, it's time we get comfortable in them -- and begin loving it once again.
Do we treat those in our lives that we care for and love with disrespect? Not at all.
So why don't we do the same for ourselves?
We are deserving of it because we are worthy. You are worthy. Because at any stage of your journey, you alone are enough. 💛
#transformationtuesday a little late. The right was last summer, not even my heaviest yet! (I have like NO full body photos of my heaviest) and the left was me before the movies tonight! Go see Baby Driver! SO GOOD 👶🏻 #dirtymirror
Meal prep Tuesday! Used that Korean BBQ rub, lime juice, coconut oil, habanero hot sauce, and garlic as an overnight marinade, then threw the chicken and veggies on the grill. Came out SO GOOD SERIOUSLY
I don't know why it felt so hard to post this picture after I've already posted pictures of myself in my underwear on here but for some reason this felt more intimate. Last year in April is when I went in for the seminar for surgery and I weighed somewhere around 325lbs, I wore a size 24-26 in bottoms from Target and my swim top was from Lane Bryant and was my bras size. As of last week I weigh 242lbs, I am wearing a size 18-20 bottoms from Walmart and my top is a size 15/17 also from Walmart. I have not been this small in 10 years maybe longer. And no my body isn't tan or perfect but it is my body and I am so happy with how I feel and how I look right now that I can't help but want to show everyone the progress that I have made. I still have days where I keep forgetting that I am no longer the girl in the all black bathing suit and then I look at this picture or I look in the mirror to remind myself of how far I've come and how far I have to go. #vsgjourney#vsgcommunity#vsgsupport#vsgsurgery#wlsjourney#wlscommunity#wlssupport#wlssurgery#vsginstacrew#vsgfamily#bariactricbabes
I was so irritated when I got to the gym today but somehow I turned that irritation into energy lol. I jogged for almost 13 minutes without stopping. Like, who the hell am I? 😁😁 °
I was so caught off guard but after the rest of my workout I got back on and did another 10 mins. Stayed in peak HR zone majority of the time too. This turned my mood ALL the way around. I'm amazed at what my body is able to accomplish these days. #NSV .
Does anyone else get hangry? Im sure this surgery was supposed to get rid of the hunger hormone!! While I don't get hungry like I used to, now I feel like I need to eat every couple of hours and it really affects my mood if I don't... as my boyfriend knows too well 😂😂
HOKAY, so. Laying on the floor Bc I'm nasty sweaty & also Bc I can't get up. Tonight I did 80 flights of stairs in 21 mins, which was exciting and surprising - my left knee is SO EFFING WEAK. Realizing it's going to take some time to get it back to a decent place. But I had a killer workout, burning over 500cals & my shoulders are still shaking 😅. Going to make some chicken & veggies for din! Happy Tuesday, fam!! // #wls#vsg
