You’re not always going to be motivated
It’s NEVER going to be easy
Fuck yeah I wanted to give up
Hell yes, it hurt
I cried every day
I wore a girdle just to stand upright
I doubted myself every day... how the hell is this going to help me get rid of 65 lbs!
I danced my first 13 lbs off in 30 days
I gave it 30 days, because I refused to be stuck in the body I was in.
My competition isn’t that sexy, Instagram fit-chick, my challengers, my sister, my friends,... it’s ME.
Every day, I just decided that I was going to show up, and every day I got better, stronger, healthier... And even on my bad days, I gave myself grace, time, rest, and love.. and here I am today.
I started in a girdle, worked out in the dark in baggy sweat pants and long sleeve shirts, hiding my body because I had ZERO confidence in myself... but just one day at a time made a HUGE impact on my life, my health, my spirituality, my parenting, it’s not just about how you look... it never is.
If I gave up every time I was in pain, or I doubted myself,... or “I just don’t think I’m worth all the effort”... I wouldn’t be where I am today.
This is why I do what I do.
This is why I’m here.
Because I am YOU.
I was where you are!
And I believe in YOU!
