I have been staring at my progress pic for the last two days, deciding if I wanted to share it on my website. I shared it on my instagram, but for some reason that feels like a safer place than here.
I'm still new to this whole blogging thing, and to be honest with you the subject matter of my blog makes me very vulnerable. I'm putting myself out there for the world to see my flaws, my struggles, my insecurities. To those who know me, I am a strong-willed and confident person. But I'm still human. I have days where I cry out of frustration because nothing in my closet fits. I get angry at myself for allowing myself to fit back into my "fat clothes". I feel disappointed in myself most of the time. During my quiet moments of reflection I have feelings of sadness and hopelessness. Often I try to find excuses to give up on this blog. I say to myself, "Eh, who cares. I just want a big ass cheeseburger. No one even follows my blog." I have conversations like this with myself daily. And eventually I talk myself out of it.
When I was younger and playing basketball competitively, my coach and Dad taught me something very important that I still practice to this day. When I would go through drills hour after hour alone, he would tell me to "practice like there's someone guarding you."
So I did. I protected the ball like a defender could steal it, I crossed over hard to get by the imaginary person guarding me. I practiced hard, all by myself. And this situation is no different except that the imaginary person guarding me is myself.
I can sabotage my own success.
I can block my own blessings.
I can steal my own happiness.
In order to achieve my goals, I've got to go hard against myself. I've got to get uncomfortable, I've got to push myself to the next level, I've got to BELIEVE that I'm BETTER than my old self!
So with that said, I'm sharing this progress pic after 14 days of being on The Fat Diminisher System. There isn't much of a big difference, but you can notice a slight change in my waist and I definitely FEEL TOTALLLLLLLLLLY different!
Here are some of the things that have drastically changed in the last 2 weeks of starting The Fat Diminisher System:
1. I haven't had ONE cup of coffee, but I have so much energy ALL DAY.
2. I don't feel bloated after meals
3. I have to pull up my jeans because they are falling down as I walk
4. I wake up in the morning 2 hours earlier without any complaints! (I get SO much more done!)
5. I don't crave fatty foods anymore.
So, if you're still deciding whether or not to join me, maybe you've got an imaginary defender in front of you blocking your shot, or preventing you from reaching your goal. I encourage you to push through it, work hard and EARN IT.
After gaining nearly 100lbs while suffering from PCOS, my journey to lose weight has finally ended and my love and appreciation for healthy but delicious food has just begun. This my story on how I lost nearly 90lbs while still completely indulging in life.
