First let me say that this has been hard and I have struggled, BUT that seeing results is making it easier to say no to beer and ice cream! Jason and I got married in April 2012 and I felt like I looked "good"....it wasn't til after that that I just sorta just "let go". Ya know, because I married now, "the fat and happy syndrome". BUT honestly I WAS NOT HAPPY. I noticed myself not going out anymore to anywhere or doing anything! It was getting sad and lonely. My husband never said anything to me and was always encouraging. Then I would get even more sad bc I was thinking "how the heck did I let this happen"??? It wasn't until Oct or so I finally bit the bullet and just put myself in check! I had tonsil surgery and lost 20 lbs just bc you can't eat anything and my taste buds had changed DRASTICALLY, so nothing tasted good anyway. I changed my eating habits like 180. I still struggle when my salt tooth is screamin for chips and queso (MY FAVORITE!!). I just cut out drive thrus and the majority of carbs. THEN the holidays came and I fell of the 'eat good wagon' and found myself in yet another pity party...DANGIT COCO GET WITH IT! A very very good friend and I have been on this weight loss journey, she holds me accountable (get a buddy! it helps!). We have now been eating right and using some supplements (AdVocare AMAZINGGGG!) I saw her on Friday and she about fell out. SHE noticed it before I did.
The pic on the left was Dec 1st at a concert. When I got the pic back I didn't recognize "the fat girl". I never posted it or shared it with anyone. I was embarrassed. NOW the girl on the right is what I am excited about. This was taken last Friday when I got home from work and I put on that same shirt just to see. You can't slap the smile off my face! I'm excited on the changes.
THE ONLY WAY YOU WILL LOSE WEIGHT IS IF YOU CHANGE WHAT YOU ARE PUTTING IN YOUR BODY! THERE IS NOT MIRACLE OR QUICK FIX!!!! AND IT TAKES A LOT LONGER TO TAKE IT OFF THAN YOU PUT IT ON. I'm here for encouragment and motiviation. I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT. Yes, it is tough! But won't you feel amazing?! I know that my confidence is getting better!!
I decided to make this change. This is NOT an endoresment.
