As I approach 19 months into my journey, as shown above, I have lost... but I’ve gained so much more.
Gained learning to accept someone else’s love for me.
Gained self-care to eat for nourishment & adapt an active lifestyle to keep my muscles & heart in check.
Gained patience for myself & realizing results may not be instantaneous and that’s okay — because no matter my pace, forward is forward.
Gained understanding and realizing if I fall off track, I can get back ON track and that although I may fall down 7 times, I WILL get back up 8.
Gained kindness for myself and realizing that there’s no reason to tear myself down for a little bump on the very long road that is my life long journey.
The little bump does not define my journey.
I define my journey.
I am in control of what I do and of my actions.
And because of that, I am here today. 💛
Additional info: My journey began in October 2016. My highest recorded weight was 227 pounds. I am currently maintaining around 140 pounds, sometimes a little less, sometimes a little more (140 being my goal and I have maintained it since hitting it approx. 6 months ago). I am 5’3”.
In regards to what my food plan is and what types of workouts I do, I have those posted on my page. Look for the posts with a blue background & bold black lettering, one is labeled, “HOW DO I START?”, the other, “WHAT IS YOUR FOOD PLAN AND EXERCISE REGIME?”.
App Info: I used the PhotoGrid App to make the photos side by side. I then used the Aviary App and used the “Add Text” option to add the white lines. Once all that was done, I went into Instagram where you upload a photo from your album to then add the measurements. Yeah.. this all took about 30-40 minutes. #patience 😂
