What makes it so hard for people to maintain a healthy weight?? Why do people lose weight just to go back and gain it all back again?
These are questions that I have asked myself my entire adult life and have never found an answer. Recently I’ve gotten some insight, but I still struggle.
I mean I’m a busy mom right? I have a disabled husband and a special needs son. I mean these are all good reasons to slack off right? I mean who wouldn’t, right?
This is me negative self-talking my way into oblivion. It’s me giving myself bullshit excuses. And then I get to be mad at myself for being fat. And then I give myself that as an excuse too. And the cycle goes on and on.
Let me tell you about the pictures I’ve shared here. Back in 2012 I had an amazing year personally. I had been sick for years and the docs got me fixed. I felt great and no one could tell me anything.... I could achieve anything I wanted.
And damn it, I did.
I found a workout program I could do at home (couldn’t afford a gym and daycare fees), so I bought the DVD set off of an infomercial and did the workouts. Man did (90 days each time), got bored with it, and never touched it again. Shortly after that I met a guy, started nursing school, and packed on all the weight I had lost. I didn’t have anybody that I was working out with, everyone around me ate like shit, and I didn’t have the willpower to stand on my own and continue.
😩Fast forward a couple years and two babies (at once!) later and you have my other transformation photos. I found my way back to the amazing company who made that first program years ago, and now found out that not only do I have on demand access to ALL OF THEIR WORKOUTS (🤯) they also have a wonderful community of likeminded people who all want to see me healthy, happy, and successful. That’s not to say that my journey hasn’t been hard, it absolutely has.
The difference? I have a group of kick ass ladies that will call me and check up on me, cheer me on, and kick me in the ass if necessary. We are starting a new program in January that is only 20 min/day, 6days/wk, for 6 wks. Do yourself a solid and join us. We got your back 💋
