Don't look down on yourself and your life. We all go through struggles and it gives us opportunity to learn and grow as individuals. Keep your head up, and that way you will be able to see the blessings that are around you, and the blessings are waiting for you on the positive path ahead💜
Day 52: I’m not a huge fan of BMI, BUT I’m finally considered overweight rather than obese and that’s kinda a big deal in my book 💚 Also, my size 16 jeans aren’t fitting anymore and I’m kinda sad cause I just bought them in July lol but yay for the NSV

- Same person but a lot less of me! Photo on the left I was around 340 pounds (not my heaviest). I knew I needed to make a major life change to be healthier for my family. I became complacent and the weight just kept piling on! I didn't work out or go for walks and ate a lot of food I shouldn't have eaten. My diet consisted of bread, pasta, potatoes, chips & cookies followed with lots of pepsi. I reached my highest weight in July of 2016. I stepped on the scale and it read error, I made the assumption that it needed new batteries. I soon found out that I exceeded the weight limit of 408 lb. I couldn't believe I allowed food control me to the point of morbid obesity at 414 pounds. On July 29, 2016 I made a lifesaving decision to start my journey! I lost 230 pounds in 14 months and have maintained it for one year. I have loose skin and it definitely has its imperfections, but I worked hard for this body. I spent so much time hating it but I realize that this is the only body I have and I'm going to love it and take damn good care of it ❤
Eat like you love yourself. Move like you love yourself. Speak like you love yourself. Act like you love yourself 🙋

This right here is why I LOVE @weightwatchers.
This is one of my favorite recipes, Korean Beef BBQ ringing in at 13sp for the whole plate. BUT let me tell you why I LOVE my #wwlife
Some wouldn’t consider this a “healthy” food or a “diet” food but on weight watchers I can fit it into my day! I get to be in control of what I consider “healthy” because this isn’t a diet. This is a change for life. Even when I’m off track, I’m never truly OFF track. Weight watchers has given me the tools to •actually• change my life and make better decisions day by day.
I’ll admit it , I’ve always been CUTE 🤷🏻♀️ haha ! But what I mean is , I grew up hearing “you’re so pretty ! If you lost a little weight , you’d be beautiful” and never was this said to me from my mom or loved ones but from distant relatives or supposed friends and of course , guys too 🙄. I’ve been through more than my fair share of bullying , taunting and rejection but I always knew deep down that the people who judged you by your looks were the worst people of them all. Now , don’t get me wrong , I can be vain (clearly) but I never , not for a moment , use my confidence to put someone else’s down . That’s just MEAN. I almost feel like people see me now and might think I’ve always looked this way . Oh no honey- if you only knew .
Last night’s small group workout with @tiafitpro
included a finisher of a race to 100 pushups, which included nonstop ab work when you needed a pushup break. I felt pretty confident that I would hit 100, but I was humbled FAST.
By the time the first guy (@kjsim9
) made it to 100, I was at 41. FORTY FUCKING ONE. Not even 50% there. In the (pretty recent) past, I would have felt a LOT of shame about not being good enough and internalizing that message. Instead, while somewhat frustrated, I was more so incredibly motivated to get to that 100, NO MATTER FUCKING WHAT. I no longer cared about others, but simply my own performance and my will to finish.
I took a 30 minute break, did my post-lift run, and then went back and finished the remaining 59. When my chest and tri’s gave out, I moved to modified pushups off a bench and cut out the ab work during my break, but reduced my rest to only 15-20 seconds. In that moment, I didn’t fucking care if I was there all night—I was going to finish those 59 if it killed me...and finish I did. While humbled by the challenge, I also haven’t been this proud of my lack of self-judgment and my persistence to finish.

I don't have anything to say. I worked out. I'm in a terrible mood. I'm so disgusted with how my body looks I don't even want to look in the mirror. I haven't felt so ugly in a long time. I'm not looking for pity. I'm just over everything right now. My body looks horrible to me. Underneath my clothes it's worse. Everything droops and sags; it looks like I'm melting. I've wrecked my body and days like today, I'm really pissed off at myself for what I've done.
How many times am I gonna re do my macros?
Answer: as many times as it takes to get it right.
But seriously, I realised I had set myself short by not accurately calculating my training. I plan to have 3 cardio days and 5 lifting days and I'd only calculated for 1-3 active days. I would have been under eating and that wouldn't sustain my goals of gaining muscle.
Gotta eat to grow. Hopefully this is the last time I have to redo them until my weight changes again. Really happy with how I'm feeling though with lower carbs, protein and fats are keeping me hella full 🤤👏🏻
It’s been over an hour since I got home from working out... and my legs are still shaking... tonight was something else so here’s a #sweatyselfie
. Talk about PROGRESS 🙌🏼
Every day I thank GOD that I made this decision. I decided to choose myself. To put my health first. I still enjoy all of the food, drinks, and fun— but I know that I don’t want to be a burden on those who care about me as I get older. I’ve got to try to love myself the way that God loves me— and though that’s impossible, because well, He’s God, every day I feel stronger and more in tune with that love. And it’s WONDERFUL💕

It's time to pay it forward! I will be hosting a 90 day transformation challenge Nov 1st. I'll only be accepting 20 challengers and the first 10 challengers will get 50% off. Plain and simple. Everyone always asks me how I progress so quickly. Here's your chance to see for yourself. DM me for details! I'll see you at the top! #ObeseToBeast #PayItForward #90DayTransformation
The whole RACK FOR 10 (300). 🦍🦍
Had the honor of being the first of many, to sit down with my man @_ejaycruz
today on his podcast @theparablespodcast
I really can’t wait for you guys to be able to hear and see this!
We discussed the way the fitness industry is moving, my early life and so much more. You guys are in for a real treat 🍬
It was definitely one for the 📚, do me a favor and go follow them and look for this episode to drop in the next week or two 📌
New clothes on top of my old clothes - I’ve changed so so much, these pictures are proof. Yet when I look in the mirror I see no difference. I still think I look like I weigh 285, not the 213 my scale says I weigh. For me, losing weight isn’t the hard part - adjusting mentally is.
If you want it, get after it. (swipe 👈🏼)
Right now—think about a health or fitness goal you had a year ago. Did you reach it?
Imagine yourself today if you took consistent steps to reach that goal. Imagine if you consistently made reasonable food choices, exercised, and got enough sleep. Imagine where you’d be right now.
If that’s not you, that’s okay! But take action this time. Do it so that this time next year, when you’re thinking about this post, you’re an even better version of you!
One thing I’ve learned over this past year, is that the clock still ticks whether or not your diet is in check, or you exercise or not. Time will still pass, the days will come and go, and you will be somewhere in year. Take this opportunity to ensure it’s place you want to be 💪🏼 •
(Also, huge super secret announcement coming sometime next week🙃)
Weight Loss Tip: Put a sign on the kitchen and refrigerator doors: "Closed after Dinner."
I could consider my past year of weight gain and obstacles a failure but I rather see it as a learning experience. I dont regret a thing honestly because I've learned more now about myself than I have in years. I've learned my weaknesses and talked to the right people who have helped me better them.
Not only have I learned valuable things for myself but I've also learned valuable things from and for some of you. I feel like I can connect to so many more of you with this new experience. It crazy to see how a lot of you have also regained weight yet it makes me so happy that some of you are motivated again to continue to try and lose it. .
Let's keep learning, let's keep progressing, and let's keep transforming 💪💯
Workouts with a partner are always more fun. Definitely helps with motivation and to go harder than you would by yourself 👊🏼
Thursdays are #hikingdays
up Teapot and today we did it in 39 minutes which I’m really happy about, especially with all the rain! 💯🌧⛰
Went to the gym today. Looking like a 10 all the way.
