So this was lunch. I literally ate 3 bites if chicken and a quarter of the veggies. Just not very hungry today. Its weird how my body does that. Its telling me it doesn't need anymore. Now trying to decide if I want to hit the gym after work.... I need an elliptical and a treadmill at home 🤔 But would I use it....lol

The only thing that will make you happy is being happy with who you are, and not who people think you are.
I can't even contain my excitement!!! Five weeks from TOMORROW!! #plastics
!!!! So I won't be able to work out for approximately 6 weeks after so I'm hitting the gym for two hours a day every single day of the week. I'm hitting the weights harder and with more weights/reps and I'm focusing on fueling my body with the right nutrients. I'm in an incredible period of growth and development and I'm grateful and blessed for this journey. I'm 👌this close to being exactly #100poundsdown
and am loving this new body. The skin definitely weighs me down. There are portions of the loose skin that have fat deposits that I cannot figure out how to get rid of and I've come to terms that it is just going to need to be surgically removed (what else is new for my body?). But being this close to go time has me doing intense research, rereading my doctor's reviews, following his work, reading recovery times from people, talking to friends who've had it done, and focusing on mental clarity to handle the pain that will come with it. Starting the next chapter of this fitness journey! 👊 #plastics #weightlossjourney #weightloss #progress #tummytuck #abdominoplasty
New back, who dis? 🙌🏻
This may not look like much to some, but I’m so damn proud of those little muscles 💕 To go from having multiple chub rolls on my back to this blows my mind. I used to HATE how chunky my back was/how it looked. This took consistency and patience; even this small amount of muscle definitely isn’t grown overnight. You better believe I’m so thankful to myself for fighting for myself every single day, even on the days I didn’t want to, that led me to a reflection I’m proud of 💜
The next few months will go by no matter what. Don’t wait for summer to come around to wish you would of started your journey in January. Don’t wait for the doctor to tell you that your health is in jeopardy. Don’t wait for the plus size section to still be too tight. I know what it felt like to be “too big” to ride the roller coaster or go down the water slide. Maybe even fit in the airplane seat. I know what it felt like to lose my breathe at every step up the stairs. I’ll never forget the PAIN I felt from being overweight.
Build the daily discipline to become better than yesterday. If eating healthy and working out was part of the reason we earn our income we would do it. If there was a paycheck to pay your bills attached to the goal of getting your health in place you’d probably do it. Give yourself the chance of better health. Don’t keep waiting for the “perfect time”. I waited long enough for the perfect moment and let me tell you... challenges will still happen when you are “on track” but it’s totally up to us to keep going at our goals. Don’t quit when it gets hard. Don’t slow down when you feel proud. There’s always a NEW LIMIT. Your family needs you to do it first & then you’ll lead the way 💯
Don’t wait to see someone at their goal to decide you want to try 🙏🏼 getting fit is not easy but it is damn sure worth it. The pain I feel today has RESULTS instead of DETERIORATION. 🗣
OMG, getting dressed in the mornings used to be an EVENT of CIRCUS-tral PROPORTIONS.
Step 1: lay in bed and picture myself in an outfit I was going to wear.
Step 2: put it on.
Step 3: discover it actually looked like HOT GARBAGE.
Step4: take it all off. Throw on bed.
(Repeat, repeat, repeat)
Nothing EVERRR looked as nice on me as it looked on the Heather in my head. I hated that. It always looked FRUMPY. OMG, THE FRUMP. ALWAYS. It made me feel like I had ZERO style, and ZERO ability to look like a respectable working human. That starts to eat away at a persons confidence. I started to feel like 'not looking nice' was just part of me. I was just someone who didnt look nice in clothes, thats all there was to it. Those were just the cards I was dealt.
Its SOO.WEIRD to try things on now and then have a choice in deciding if I LIKE THEM instead of just whether or not it FIT me. I rather like not looking like hot garbage* (*as often. Lets be realistic, here. 🤷♀️😬). THAT SHOULDNT BE A LUXURY. HOT GARBAGE should be a CHOICE (and honestly, sometimes thats the right call. Amiright).
BUT...Last night when I was picturing what to wear in my head, I pictured this. This morning, the mirror pictured it right back. 💅

Let me drop a #MotivationMonday
pic real quick. Im barely starting to get over my hatred towards my old pictures, now starting to use them as my motivation. I’m officially 120lbs down from my highest weight. 🙌
Happy Monday everyone, feliz inicio de semana.🥰
This is what got me through this time. Out of all the times I’d try to lose weight, I would mess up and say that I was destined to be morbidly obese. Just remember, today isn’t yesterday! You can do better today! #motivationmonday
Some things have changed, others haven’t. Throw the hair up in a bun to get shit done 😂
You don’t have to order a salad 🥗 🌟When I started my health journey, eating out was so stressful for me. A million things would run through my head: “I really want that burger, but I should get a salad instead, but salads can be just as bad, so should I just order it with nothing on it but grilled chicken? Yuck! I mind as well have stayed home and cooked.” Looking back, I wish I could tell myself to chill out. 😂
🌟Following a few basic strategies has helped me to eat out according to my goals.
1. Plan ahead: If possible, take a look at the menu online ahead of time and pick two options (I learned that sometimes my first choice isn’t available so having a backup choice is smart)
2. Don’t “Save your calories”: Eat healthful, filling meals leading up to eating out. The truth is, starving yourself before eating out is only going to make you over eat and feel cruddy afterwards. If you fuel yourself regularly with great foods, you will automatically make better choices and will be less likely to eat past “full”.
3. Eat what you love: Eating out should be fun and shouldn’t feel like a sacrifice. If you really want a burger, have a burger. Just ask for it without the top bun and request a side of veggies instead of the fries.
4. Portion Control: If the meal arrives and the portion is huge, immediately ask for a to go box. Putting the excess food out of sight right away will prevent “clean plate syndrome”.
5. Drink Water: Before taking a single bite of food, drink at least 16oz of water and continue sipping throughout the meal. This will help you to slow down, enjoy the meal and will aid in recognizing when you are full.
6. Be realistic: The truth is, no matter what you order, there is likely added sodium and some hidden ingredients that may show up on the scale the next day. Take a deep breath. It’s ok. A single meal will not undo a lifestyle of mindful, healthy nutrition. Food is not the enemy, our self sabotaging inner voice is.
These steps have helped me to eat out with confidence and have helped me to ditch the drama that used to come with eating out. Do you have questions about how to eat out healthfully? Ask below 👇

👏🏾 Cute jeans were never a thing for me. EVER 🤣 They would never fit my body shape and so uncomfortable. But the way these 16 fit tho, I might see more in my future. Side note: waist beads moving on down 😍😌💁🏽♀️
