I believed in myself!

So here is a story of a girl who always had a weight issue… I’ve tried most diets and failed. It’s hard, but this time I tried a “combo attack” between MFP and another weight loss program that deals with the psychological portion of weight loss, I have almost reached a 30 pound weight loss since May 28, 2021.
I’m not normally one for pictures, especially kit a whole body shot, although I wanted to start to see the comparison.
This past weekend, my husband and I purchased a new car, and they naturally take a picture of you with that car… well they did just that! Unbeknownst to me, they posted on Facebook and my daughter saw it. I looked at it and was pleasantly surprised at the different I saw in my body! I shared it with my mom and she asked for a comparison picture and I thought I was gonna have to go WAY back, maybe a year or so, but it turns out that we went on a hike about a month and a half ago and we got a whole body shot. And that’s when it really struck me that I really was starting to change my looks! It was a real noticeable change! I was so proud of myself for the willpower that I stood my ground for, making healthy choices when going out to dinner, going for a nightly walk, and planning my meals ahead, and mostly for the accountability of MFP friends and the other program I’m on!
The bottom line is that I believed I could, I had goals and I worked hard to keep them in line- hard work but SOOO worth it in the end!
Am I finished on this journey? NOPE! I’m only half way there and even when I get there I have to learn to maintain and continue to work hard and establishing good habits!
Another big part of my getting to where I am is good people, ones that are on like paths to mine. So if you want a friend that will cheer you on, add me, all I ask is that you can do the same for me! It’s a group effort to have the mindset and sometimes we fail but it’s not the end of the world, but more so a “oh well” day, you start the next day fresh! 3d240jx312ps.png

Thanks for taking the time to read my story.

    Firstly and most importantly, Fantastic job and congratulations.

    Secondly, thanks for the warning - this gives me yet another reason never to buy a new car. I think it's rude and intrusive to not only insist on a picture, but then post it on social media without your permission. Glad you didn't mind it though! :)
