For a long time, I was.
First I started to feel uncomfortable in my clothes.
They were tight.
and then I started to feel uncomfortable going out with my friends.
I felt unsexy.
and then I started to feel unhealthy.
I was eating whatever I wanted and not getting to the gym as often due to my crazy new work schedule (excuses, excuses.)
I'm generally a good eater and I exercise intuitively, meaning when I feel the need or desire, I do it.
I could blame my unmanageability on work, or stress, or any of that stuff.
But the truth is I relapsed. I lost the care and the drive to be who I know I am.
a healthy, comfortable, sexy, active woman.
I needed a jump start. So I picked up this book in Barnes&Noble and I read it. and I liked it. I read online accounts like this one and this one. and I felt inspired. So I tried it.
It's 5 weeks later and I'm down almost 12 pounds. I wish I could say that I feel a lot different, but I don't. My clothes are definitely more comfortable, and my confidence is good. But I am frustrated because I want immediate results. I keep telling myself slow weight loss is sustainable weight loss.
If you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them, and if you have any tips or ideas I'd be happy to read them! :)
This is a "before" picture. I know it may not look like it here (these are the only recent full body shots I have), but I had 22 pounds to lose. I'm halfway there! Check out my pinterest board for more inspiration and strong, beautiful women.
