10 things I've learned last year that have change my life...

This past year has been the most transformative year of my life. What I thought was a simple weight loss journey, turned into a journey into my soul. A journey to discover who I need to be and especially a journey of self-love and acceptance. I have shed many tears, wrote pages of journal entries and questioned myself more times than I can count. I wouldn’t change a minute of it. Below is a brief list of the 10 most important things I learned last year. These are the 10 things that have transformed me on the inside and how I see my life. A life that I see now is pretty amazing.

A year ago life changed for the better.

**Extremely vulnerable post alert**

I wish I had $1.00 for every time I started a new diet or fitness program. Weight is something I've struggled with my entire life and it's a daily battle with myself. I'm pretty sure my sister is tired of me talking about it the most. Usually when I post a before picture it's followed with an after picture that's slightly less embarrassing but something that I'm a little bit proud of. Not today. I've decided that this year I'm really going for it. I'm tired of talking about it all the time, i'm tired of thinking about it all the time and I'm tired of it affecting my life on a daily basis. Today I'm throwing it all out there by posting my before picture all by itself. There's no after picture of weight loss just me as I am today. My starting weight sadly is not even the heaviest I've ever been but you can be damn sure I'm never going to weigh this much again. I'm posting this for two reasons. 1. For the accountability to myself that this is the last time I'm doing this. I will get healthy once and for all. No powders or shakes or pills. Just me, good food and a gym membership. 2. To show others that you're not alone. If you're scared to take that first step, reach out to me and let's work together. We can do this! Life is full of so many other wonderful things but it's a shame I spend so much time worrying about what I weigh and what can I do to lose weight. It's time to take control of my eating and my exercise. It's time I take back my life. 💖💋💖💋

Unfuck Yourself!

I've been saying for years that losing weight is hard. That's been my mantra that I've been preaching for years and used far too long as an excuse to stay fat. It's not entirely true though and I just came to that realization recently.
