I sit here and am super conflicted with emotions! I can no longer allow myself to hide behind clothes and makeup and fake smiles. Do I post these pictures???
I should to show you what change can truly do for you.
I started a journey journal almost a year ago, The one thing I really wish I would of thought about was how unflattering my before pictures would look if in fact i did get to my goal. I had to chose the most relieving pieces of clothing so i could see what i had done to my body. I kept this picture with me daily, every time I wanted to give up and make excuses for myself i would look at this picture and say to myself
” You will not change if you don’t get your mind right”
I am sure everyone has gone through some sort of personal battle where your mind WINS! This time I wasn’t going to let all those deceitful thoughts creep in and take over EVER AGAIN!!! I posted these pictures to show you all how far i have come on my journey so far. I am an open book from now on. I will no longer hide!
I do in fact have cellulite, and stretch marks, and to some might not look so great, But i have come so far, don’t judge my praise, and still have so far to go. I am more determined then ever to be in the best shape of my life, not only physical but mentally and emotionally as well.
These were my motivating picture’s!!!!
