The UGLY truth! So in my last post featuring some pictures of my success in losing weight, here are some of the promised images of my downfall/relapse or whatever you want to call it.
I finished my 6st goal at the end of December 2016 at 13st 7lbs. IT FELT GOOD! However, a year or so later, on February 2018, 13/14 months later, I was back 2-3 stone heavier. (Last image). How and why do I - do we do this to ourselves? 😂
Yes in the first two images I’m striking a better pose, confident with my chest out and shoulders back, feeling good after a gym session no doubt! Compare that to the last image, I’m trying on a pair of jeans in a changing room, RAGING, I’m bloated as f**k and clearly lack the same kind of confidence. But that’s the whole point of it all if you ask me! The mentality that comes with being healthier and feeling good about yourself is why I started working out in the first place - so if you’re losing in this, you’re losing in everything because at the end of the day it’s all about self confidence, your self-esteem, your feeling of importance and your happiness getting out of bed in the morning! Or at least that’s what I think.
So what’s the craic now? Well, I’ve had my fun, had my food binges, now, a couple of months ago I’ve restarted my weight loss goals and I plan to reach 13st 7lbs again. I will be updating my Instagram reflecting my progress in the coming weeks and in 2019.
