My big thing that I feel and tell people is that I didn't drop weight over night, but I feel like I made a life change. I have a different mindset about how I can look and feel and what I can do. It took me time to drop the 35 lbs, but I feel like I can maintain that and still live and be normal. I can still splurge for 2 weeks on vacation and come home and get back into it. I can & do enjoy a to die for dessert every now and then. I tell my kids that I choose not to have something, rather than I can't or I shouldn't. I hear friends say they don't eat this or they don't drink a smoothie and I don't feel like I have to say that. I just "choose" what and when I eat things. My biggest struggle is staying motivated to work out by myself. :( Goal - drop another 10 lbs, have better cardio endurance and stronger core so I can bike longer and faster.
The Body and Life Overhaul principles have changed my life. I truly feel that i have become who I was meant to be. I am no longer critical of myself. I truly love myself. Learning my how Amazing I was, helped me be happy and love myself. My body quickly responded to this new joy. I kept promises to myself and nourished myself. I meal prepped, did my inner-peace work, and went to all the workouts. My pics say it all. I was bloated, pudgy, and unhappy. Now I am joyful, energetic, strong and fit!
