Ok here goes... it has taken me nearly a year to post this picture...I just couldn't bring myself to do it before now. Showing my body is never something I will be comfortable with & every holiday it fills me with dread, the prospect of sitting scantily clad in front of people, however my body has since changed. Here, I was obsessed with lifting weights every day, muscle gains and protein shakes which left my 5ft 3" figure 'bulky' but I didn't have the balance right. This year I've barely touched a weight and replaced them with daily cardio and pilates and I haven't looked back. I've lost the bulk and can see a HUGE change... it can be difficult to get it right with training & what you put in your mouth but I feel like I'm slowly getting there. I know we should embrace ourselves & our flaws but it's easier said than done isn't it. Theres more to people than just their bodies so why do we give ourselves such a hard time & scrutinise every detail? Do our bodies define who we are inside? Certainly not, yet we spend so much time dwelling on improvement! Maybe this year I will post the pic!
