It took many many years of self hate and self loathing and always putting myself down before I came to the realization that God doesn't make mistakes… He makes each of us individual pieces of perfection in His eyes. He loves us with His whole heart! We are all fearfully, beautifully and wonderfully made! ❤
Psalm 139:14 - I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
I am loving my new workout outfit! It is so hot and humid out there and it's definitely time to move out of my comfort zone of wearing T-shirts and workout pants and start wearing shorts and tank tops! This is huge for me because I never wear shorts and I never wear tank tops because I've always had big legs and big arms but now that I'm losing weight I'm starting to feel a little more confident in myself and in what I wear. And workout clothes don't have to be expensive either...I got everything but the shoes at Walmart smile emoticon
Recently I shared a before/after photo of myself in one of my Facebook groups and while most people were supportive and encouraging, it also brought some criticism from a few people who said there was no way that losing 45 pounds could look like such a huge difference and that I had to have lost more than that to get those results. In response I shared the photo above to show that while all of these ladies weigh the same amount, each one is different and what might look one way on one will look totally different on another. The lesson here is to be happy with how you look and feel and don't let a number define you!
This girl is down 45 pounds and loving life!! ✨ Back in February when I started my weight loss journey I was depressed, sick, had horrible self esteem, absolutely NO confidence in myself or my abilities...I was a hot mess! But now thanks to the support and motivation of my challenge groups, my coach, family and friends I have learned that ✨I CAN DO WHATEVER I SET MY MIND TO✨ and my self confidence is now over the top! Want more info on what I'm doing that's helped me lose 45 pounds since February? Leave me a comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I'd love to talk with you!
I've heard a lot about Quest Bars for quite awhile from people in my low carb groups and finally decided it was time to try them :) So far I've had the lemon and I'm on the fence about these…I wasn't crazy about that particular flavor but I've heard good things about the cookies and cream so I'm keeping my hopes up! So much so that I picked up the Smores and Strawberry Shortcake flavors as well ;) If you've tried these weigh in and let me know your opinion, I'd love to hear from you!
