So! It’s been exactly one year since I started this blog and my weight loss journey. Despite being bloated (and it being a rest day), I just had to document today!
This has honestly been one of the hardest journeys I’ve ever embarked on. I used to hate myself and my body, and only ever wished I could be one of the ‘skinny girls’. I always tried and failed to lose weight, and punished myself with various methods of restriction. I won’t say that I lost every pound in a healthy way, but hey, it’s a process. You learn from your mistakes, and then make better ones.
I have not reached my current goals yet, but what started as a desire to be ~cute and omg thin~ has evolved into a craving and determination for strength and health, which is more than I could have asked for.
If you would have told me I would be where I am today when I started, I probably would have laughed in your face. But now, even with a bloated tummy, I can look at myself in the mirror and be proud of what I see. Not because of my body, but because of the person looking back at me as a result of the work I put into said body.
Anyone can do it! I believe in all of you!
SW - 200+
CW - 140s?? (I stopped checking the scale for results, numbers don’t define my progress or happiness anymore!)
Cardio, clean eating, strength training :)
Can’t wait to see what the next year brings me!!
