If you follow me on Instagram, then you've already seen some of this journey. Most of my pictures below are from my IG. Check out my process in photos....
People have said that I didn't look that over-weight before.....I beg to differ! WOW!!
Even on my wedding, I didn't feel great.
I started working with Insanity. I got more active outdoors as well. Running on the beach, hiking, yoga and even weights.
I had a little supporter throughout this process. I've had injuries and times when I fell flat on the ground. Sweated like a motha****!
A very important part of this was changing my eating habits. I changed it ALL! I actually LOVE this food now. I've got the children eating this stuff right along with me. They still get their starches here and there.
Snacks changed as well.
I love making juices and I had to throw in some protein shakes for my heavy workouts. Recently started the Herbalife shakes and I just LOVE them!! Even have a meal replacement shake for when I'm in a hurry.
Don't get me wrong, I still do take-out but my choices are very different now. Panera has become my FAVORITE place to grab lunch when I'm out and about. The salmon burger at Stacked is also my obsession! You can still eat out, you just have to make the smart choices.
I recently cleaned out my closet and got rid of everything that no longer fit me. I was left with this^. Time to shop!! :)
Here's some of my progress....
I don't want to lie, so I'm confessing that last weeks photo ^ I photoshopped the stretch marks off. HEHE! Don't nobody need to see those! >;)
Below: I recently started running and ran my first 5K at the Electric Run in Carson, Ca. It was a fun event and I was so happy to have finished it, feeling very accomplished. I also started CrossFit! YIKES! I've taken it very slow because I already had prior injuries but I really like it. The muscle I'm building is an amazing feeling.
My birthday was on July 15th and I felt awesome!
I went BACK to Vegas this past April with the hubs and friends. I can't even tell you how much better this time around felt. Shopping for the trip was fun too! ;)
At the start of my journey I was 191lbs. Size 16 pants and a 1X (sometimes 2X) in tops or dresses.
I now weigh 145lbs! I'm a size 10 in pants and wear a Medium in tops. Excuse me, I have to go do a happy dance now!!! :)
Thank you for reading this long post about my fat girl problems. I hope it inspires someone else to set goals for themselves. I can't say enough thank you's to the mama's that inspired me and supported this journey. It's amazing how your outlook on life and so many other things change when you have a healthier mind and body.
