I have been inspired over the years to diet. I have done fads, quick result weightloss, and the list goes on. The problem is, I have always lost weight but slowly gained it back. I have really enjoyed learning about clean eating from Trim Healthy Mama. Now, I am moving on to the next phase which is portion control and exercise. This is where my beautiful friend Amy Johnson comes in. I have been watching her exercise and portion control as she is working to lose 100 pounds. Also, my next beautiful friend Jennie Sheperd has been working for a year to lose weight. She has lost an incredible 50 pounds! Again, it is portion control, good clean eating and exercise. So, today my 60 lb journey begins. I am including before photos. Ugh! This is really hard to do. I will include a weekly photo update too. You can find more commentary on my Facebook page thilltribe the grass isn’t greener. Come and join my journey and begin your own. We can do this together.
Be kind as you see my photos. 😉 I have always felt like a failure about my weight. I struggle with self esteem and I know that alone would help me feel better. Weight is such a personal thing. What I have noticed is my reasoning is beginning to change. I used to want to look good to people. Now, I want to play and have energy for my kids and grandkids.
There are I’ll be no shaming here. Either kind. I have internet posts of these amazing looking women with their kids and it says something like, “you have no excuses”. I have seen pictures of heavy people saying ” I am beautiful no matter how much I weigh.” I am not here to judge either side but I feel like they are both body shaming and that isn’t nice or fair. No one has any idea of what another struggles with. It isn’t fair to judge or impose your views on someone else. I think it is important to be healthy and that is what my journey will be about. Obtaining a strong body, with energy and feeling good about myself.
