Wow everyone, thanks for all your comments on my last post! I'm really happy to hear that I'm an inspiration to many of you. It was kind of embarrassing for me to share my not so flattering pictures with the world. But I'm glad I decided to do it. It not only inspired some of you but it also re-inspired me. I've been doing my healthy lifestyle for so long now that I forgot how far I've come. It's weird because even today, I sometimes still feel that I look like that girl I was five years ago. Seeing the old pictures of myself, helps me to realize that I'm no longer that unhappy girl. It's true what they say, at times, we can be our own worse critics.
The best advice I can give anyone who is ready to change their unhealthy ways for healthier ones is this.....make a commitment to yourself and no matter what, stick to it. If you've fallen off the wagon for a week or even a year, forgive yourself and get back to your commitment as soon as you can. It doesn't make you a failure, it just means you're normal. Losing weight is hard work....if it was easy, there wouldn't be a billion dollar weight loss industry out there because nobody would need them. If it was easy we would all be able to eat just 1200 calories a day and have plenty of time to exercise. If losing weight was easy, we would all be walking around looking like "insert favorite famous person here" It's not easy, so be kind to yourself and keep on kicking ass!
