for those of you that aren't my friends, i thought i would share my story with you (:
at my high school graduation in May 2012 i was 260 pounds. last summer was a hard one that changed my life and who i am, so i decided to change my appearance on the outside to match the new me i had become on the inside.
i went off to college and gave a big middle finger to the “Freshman 15”. After almost a year of working my butt off at the gym, eating healthy, and telling myself i deserve to feel happy about myself and my body, i now stand tall and proud at 200 pounds.
now, im not quite where i want to be, but im closer than i was a year ago. i want to be an inspiration for people who think they cant do what they are dying to try.
i never thought i would look the way i do now, and i wouldn’t trade the throbbing legs, sore arms, and aching abs that i had day after day for anything in the world.
dont put yourself down or count yourself out before you give it everything you got.
happy Monday everyone (:
