The difference clothes make. A bit long, but had to share this:
I am slightly nervous in posting this. I’ve been debating on sharing this particular photo because of the bikini shots. I swore no one would ever see me in one til I lost the flab and looked the way I wanna look. Then I got to thinking, as a woman who speaks of honesty & leading by example & loving your body at any weight, shape or flaw — I decided I’d show myself as I am right now. A bikini tells no lies!! I still have a lot of work to do and about 7.5 months to make it happen. I’m experimenting with a few new things in what/how I eat and what works best for me with fitness. I learned the other day that I have an Endomorph body type. Losing body fat is harder for me, and gaining it is easy unfortunately! But losing body fat is easy IF I’m vigilant in keeping a clean diet high in protein, low in carbs, dairy & gluten. So there is where I am! I know what I need & what I must abstain from as far as food. Fitness for me is cardio based with a good lifting routine to maximize fat loss & get a lean, shredded look. Unfortunately for an Endomorph, muscle definition isn’t easy to achieve either. That makes me sad, but it’s what I have to work with — so I’ll make the most of it.
I’m learning so much about nutrition and how my body responds to certain foods. I’m learning a lot about what activities give me the most boost out of fitness. And how putting them together gives me the best results for my body. As you can see in the bikini shots, I have a lot yet to work on, but I’m no longer worried about how I look to others. I have a beautiful body! It’s given me 3 beautiful babies and even after all the abuse I put it through during my crappy foods, alcohol, smoking & sedentary lifestyle, it still keeps me alive. I’m proud of my body in or out of clothes! Do you have any idea how long it’s taken me to be able to say that — how good it feels to NOT be ashamed of how I look anymore?
Now, let me ask you — are you able to show off you body with pride at any shape, weight or flaw? If not, I would be happy to help you find that confidence. I would be glad to help you find a program, fitness formula and nutrition plan that would help you. You have to be ready in mind, body & soul though. You have to be ready to change your mind & the way you see yourself. If you’re ready, I’m ready!! How about considering giving me a chance to help you?
