May progress photo <3 a little late but better late than never! (:
This is after a year and a half of exercising and eating a moderately clean diet. I don’t eat fast food and haven’t in over a year and a half, I don’t drink soda. I do still occasionally eat at restaurants or have take out. I love to exercise, I’m currently doing 30 Day Shred, I also love to run, Zumba and other exercise dvds. I’m still actively trying to lose the baby weight, I gained over 100 lbs during my high risk pregnancy with Eclampsia and Oligo. I was on bed rest for the majority of my pregnancy and afterwards I thought I would be able to get rid of it with breastfeeding and eating healthier. After not seeing much progress I had to be honest with myself and change my lazy lifestyle and completely cut out fast food.
I’m currently on my longest plateau I’ve had since starting my journey but I haven’t lost motivation, I still have goals I aim to reach and I love to help people who are just starting out or may be in my old shoes. It’s not easy but you can do it! Looking back I remember sitting on my couch crying because I didn’t recognize the person I let myself become , I was so overweight and unhealthy. I felt it would be impossible to lose the weight and now… I don’t recognize the person in the left photo. I will never be that person again. I am stronger and more determined than I ever thought I could be. I love myself so much more now than I did two years ago.
