Transformation Thursday! Weekly Update!
5 weeks and 17 pounds gone!
This week I was a hot mess! 😆 I was super sick, couldn’t push as hard in my workouts, or do them at all, I felt so shitty I couldn’t prepare meals for myself so I had a lot of blood sugar drops, and meals that were “fast” but not as nutritious as normal. With all that, I still dropped a pound so ain’t even mad!
But truthfully, I’m not expecting to drop weight fast. And in fact, I think things will start to slow down for me now as permanent changes begin to happen. And I’m cool with that because this time my journey is all about healthy choices and making a lifestyle out of this.
The crazy thing I’m starting to notice is how my behavior with food is changing. I am choosing not to have the crap because of the way I am beginning to see how it makes me feel. Or if I choose to eat something that’s less than, I don’t over do it. This is a HUGE NSV for me because my relationship with food was unhealthy and by that I mean I had unhealthy emotional and mental attachments to foods.
Seriously ladies, if you are struggling with that, reach out to me. I GET IT.
I have never particularly liked cooking. This journey has opened my eyes to understanding that a quick cooking session can create really tasty meals. And by cooking more it’s saving my bank account. 😆 Today it’s just some basic chicken, but that’s still better than a drive-thru quick meal.
Just because I know some of you guys need to see that what you "consider to be impossible" really is POSSIBLE!!! Its important to start off slow.. dont promise to earn goals that are out of reach. Not saying you cant accomplish them over time! Just dont expect to lose a hundred pounds in a month and get angry or doubt yourself after the 30 days have past and you didnt reach goal.
The first picture I was 229 I remember clearly because I'd been wearing my waist trainer religiously!! To work, gym even slept in it a few nights... and I was angry I had only lost about 6 or 7 lbs.. I doubted myself, wondered if wearing that waist trainer was worth all the pain and suffering 😟 Needless to say I gave in to my cravings out of anger and the next couple days were hard for me. But I reminded myself of what I had already accomplished and I got right back to buisness. Its taken me 3 years almost 4 to reach my goals some what.. truth is I dont ever want to reach a certain goal I want to evolve constantly ( for the better) shorter cardio time, higher reps, higher endurance! In mix of all that I aim to show others that they are capable of anything they choose to do. I love sharing my story not only on insta but with coworkers friends family, even strangers or my patients. I want to live in a healthier, and happier world. Hopefully the future with be just that! Anyways guys have a great rest of the week, off to work I go 💖

She says," Honestly just posting this bc my ass looks great for once. Nah just messing. I’m half my size but twice as happy as I was in left. Which is funny bc I remember taking that pic and going damn I look so much happier than I feel. Now I’m just like genuinely happy. And I know what you’re thinking “bitches who talk about how happy they are are just trying to convince themselves that they are” and I get that 100% but fuck off bc I spent years being miserable and bitter and to be able to enjoy life now is something I’m going to boast about!!! The mental part of my journey has been the hardest to tackle. I can’t stress enough how important it is to not just focus on food or your workouts but your MENTAL HEALTH ladies and gents. I know how difficult it is to deal with but stop blaming everything on your weight and thinking loosing it will solve all your problems. Learn to like, no fuck that, learn to LOVE yourself throughout the process. It’s ok if you fuck up, it’s ok if you have a bad day, just know you’re human and the next choice you make will be a better one. BE A COCKY BITCH, BUT A HUMBLE ONE TOO! Ok I’m getting off my fucking soap box and shutting up. Thanks for tuning in, have a blessed Sunday". ❤❤

imperfections: MANY of you ask me or assume that i don’t have “extra” or lose skin but i’m here to tell you that is NOT true at all!!! when you lose a significant amount of weight, you WILL have lose skin. when i started my weight loss journey, my goal was to be “small”, “skinny”, fit into the size 2 pants (which no that will never happen)
but, the things no one mentions with weight loss is the skin or at least no one told me, of course i’m insecure about it, BUT i would choose to have loose skin over diabetes any day!!! the loose skin shows the amount of hard work and dedication i’ve put in the past 3.5 years so if someone has an opinion or problem about it, brush it off, and show it off with pride!!!! you did that girl, you put in the work 💪🏼❤️
B E L I E V E. That is the word I chose this year! You cannot believe in anything until you believe in yourself🧡
Bye-bye bloat✨hello energy✨ happiness flows like a MF✨ sleeping like a log✨ motivation overload✨ mental clarity to GSD all day erryday✨ lover of life✨ betterwife✨ bettermama✨loving my body✨ grateful I WANT to workout✨ belief in myself thru the roof✨
I’m 41. I’m a wife and mama. But I choose to take care of me. Not for anyone else but ME🌟Bcuz if I’m not healthy & happy then no one around me will be. This is from my last round of our 30 days to healthy living program.
We rushed off, left for vacay and I forgot to take an after pic. The pic on the right is even after a day of drinking & eating whatever I desired. I believe in balance. You also have to enjoy life and not be a weirdo. But what I’ve found is that my body-mind-soul feel better and function better when my choices are better. Guess what? There were waffles, pancakes, desserts and Nutella everyday at bfast. But I still ate eggs, fruit and potatoes not because I’m weird and strict but bcuz I’ve taught my body what’s important and feeling good from the inside out is key🌟
The power you regain from choosing YOU is like none other. 🧡I’m so grateful for all whom I have helped through this journey & excited to continue to help and coach for our future 30 days!! This program is seriously the BEST!!! If you haven’t done it- DO IT, if you have- DO IT AGAIN. I’m starting another group 3/4 and I want it to be the biggest yet!! Choose YOU. BELIEVE you can🧡
It’s been 4 years. At my largest, I had no idea how many things I was lying to myself about. My relationship with food was poor, I was unbalanced, and self destructive. Now, in honor of my 4th or 5th or 6th WHOLE 30, I can say with full certainty that the process has changed my mind and my life. I am not the same person I was and these past 5 years, everything has changed. My body, my job, health, relationships, faith, and every little piece in between.
It’d be a lie to say that I love being at the gym at 11pm but I’ve made a commitment to myself and it is the best thing I’ve ever done. Friends, you have been so kind on this journey. Thank you! God is good :) 30 on whole 30 may be making me crazy delusional, but to say I’m grateful would be an understatement.
