Welp here it is, my very own personal Transformation Tuesday.
First picture: 2010, weighed about 160 lbs extremely low self esteem, would run everyday, no weights, and tried a bunch of crazy fad diets like Herbalife, cabbage soup diet, slim fast, to name a few. Was obviously not successful
Second picture: 2013, weighed about 110 lbs and I had started lifting weights for about a year or two now. I was successful with clean eating, meaning I only ate these things: chicken, broccoli, brown rice, oatmeal and egg whites.
Third picture: 2014, weighed about 180 lbs. was still lifting weights everyday that was never the problem for me, but i got off clean eating, and felt so guilty when I would get off “my meal plan” which led me into a dark place of binge eating. To sometimes even forcing myself to throw up because I felt guilty After a binging episode
Fourth picture: 2017, weighed 115 lbs. was overall happy with my physique. I was confident and in a happy mental state. I achieved this through macros. But I was unsatisfied because I wanted curves on my body. I didn’t want to be to stick and bones
Fifth picture: currently 12/2018, weighing at 128 lbs this morning. I am extremely happy with my results. Achieving this through macros and eating way more than I’m used to (all being tracked for of course)
I posted this to show you all that success it’s not like a Straight uphill sprint to the finish line. And your done. It’s more like a roller coaster, your up and down up and down. But as long as you don’t give up on yourself and you keep learning from your mistakes you will get there. It takes a lot of time and a lot patience. Be nice to yourself.
I also wrote this out for me, because I was surprised to find that it was mentally hard to purposely eat more and gain weight. I thought I was passed all that but I realized from so many years of me trying to be skinny or whatever. There is still a little nagging voice in my head that is telling me to stop eating this or that, “your eating 300 g of carbs your going to get fat” and of course I tell it to shut up and keep doing my thing 💪🏻 #fitbum#transformationtuesday
