Keep it pushing - Motivation Post with progress photos

Motivation Post:

I can’t tell you how many times I fell and I “failed”. The copious amounts burgers, pizza, pasta, and mac and cheese that were consumed between these photos is unknown. Had I been consistent I’d be at my goal weight by now. But, I do not let that stop me. Are you going to let that stop you?

This journey isn’t perfect. You will have times where you’re not “eating well”, times where you “fail” or disappoint yourself, times where life – and its immediate gratification – wins.

The important thing is that you do not fall down and stay down. You will continue to be miserable about yourself. Continue to grow and progress at YOUR own pace. This is not a race. This is not immediate. This is a process. You are building your life.

The only thing that you should focus on is don’t ever stop trying to be who you want to be. Make your life what you want. Fall down - stand up - and keep it pushing.

    It's like you took the words right out of my mouth. seriously been going through the same thing, up and down, feelings of failure but i keep trudging along. I keep telling myself that I have to do this at my pace or it wont stick but that doesn't stop me from wishing i hadn't failed so that i would have been done by now. however that isn't how it has turned out and it doesn't do to dwell. So even when I do have a cookie I can't let it destroy me. bad days happen. Congrats on your hard work, just keep doing what you are doing. You are inspiring others even if you don't know it!

    Fab transformation well done, can totally relate about when you trip up on a bad day and think I'd have reached my goal by now if i'd just stuck at it but that's life I suppose, as long as you pick yourself up and carry on you get there, thanks for reminding me of this

    You look amazing. This is exactly the post I was needing. Was just beating myself up for eating terribly today and was on the verge of tears. But now I feel like I can make better decisions for the rest of the day and beyond. No time for a pity party, time to get back up and get to it! Thank you so much for this.
