WHOA!!! Who is that person on the left?!#throwbackthursday
That’s me. Near 220 pounds on a 5’6″ frame. A BMI of 35.5 (obese!!). I was close to an 18 jeans size and a XXL shirt. Truth be told…. I wore men’s clothes A LOT because the L for size large made me feel better. 😑😶
I never wanted to there. I felt a daily struggle to exercise. Comfort food was the answer to my all emotions aka everything in life. I tried counting calories, points, eating clean with the Whole30, tracking daily food with an app, using my own plan to exercise without a schedule and no accountability. My efforts lasted a week (if I was lucky). I kept gain weight and losing confidence. Does this sound familiar?
But then the solution from a friend came at the best time. I had just injured myself from overtraining for a half marathon. I didn’t know how to control the food going on my plate and into mouth. It sounds silly but I was starving all the time! It was a constant battle of hunger because I wasn’t fueling my body with the right portions of foods from all food groups to keep me full.
When I started using the meal prep containers, working out from home and drinking one super food shake a day I began to feel better! Day one came and gone and I wasn’t starving in between meals. Then day 2, day 3, a week, a month, day 60, day 90, 4 months, FIVE MONTHS and now today! Day 189! OVER SIX months of consistently doing the same program and still seeing results!
I haven’t felt like this in years!! Full of energy! Less cranky moods. Less mood swings. Restful night sleeps. And finding more time in the day to get things done.
This wasn’t always easy. I made sacrifices to get to my goals. I said no thank you to extra food that would put me over my container limit for the day. I stayed consistent with showing up every day.
Consistency and execution are the keys to anything we desire to be successful at. You can have all the knowledge in the world about how green the grass is, but of you dont show up every day, get it done and keep doing it, you’re not going to see the results you desire. #truthbomb
