Lets talk lose skin!😯😱🙌 Some is about genetics. Some is about your commitment. But truth is depending on the amount of weight you have to lose you may not be able to avoid loose skin no matter what you do. That was my case😞 · · I used to seriously spend hours throughout the day picking my body apart even after losing almost 300 pounds all naturally I still felt like a failure. I still felt ugly and could never believe that anyone in the world would want me. A part of me even got to the point where I thought about stopping the weight loss because I thought the loose skin was worse than being big. Let’s just take one moment and look at that last sentence, how incredibly sad is our world where are Health becomes secondary to our appearance!!!😯😞😡 · · I have had for excess skin removal surgeries and do not plan to have any others. Each time I have mentally had to read learn to love myself because there is a new person that I see everytime I look in the mirror. I still struggle and I still have my moments where I feel completely worthless. But I go back and look at pictures like this, I think about all of the things that I’ve been through and have overcome and that helps me keep fighting because I know that is possible no matter how much the world wants to hold you back💯💙🌟 · · I love you guys❤ and please remember you’re worthy and you are capable! @unendingbattle . . #motivation #inspiration #fitness #onedayatatime #keepgoing #staypositive #weightloss #weightlossjourney #cardio #trainhard #beastmode #bodybuilding #diet #happy #progress #nevergiveup #weightlossmotivation #fitfreak #fitnessaddict #selflove #bodypositivity #excessskin #selfie #beautiful #selflovewarriors #thick #fitthick
March 2014 – Weight Loss Success Story of the Day: Candice lost over 260 pounds, down from a starting weight of 460 pounds. She did it without surgery, by employing the time tested methods of eating right and exercising. She is an inspiration!!! Here is what she shared with us;
“I have lost over 260+ pounds, all naturally, and I want to show the world they can do it too!!! I started at 460 pounds. I changed my eating plan and added fitness into my life. Now I am addicted. I no longer cut corners or overeat and when I’m depressed, I just workout. I work full time, go to school and make my fitness and health a priority now!
My motivation was just that I got tired of being miserable after hitting almost 500 pounds. I was tired of being limited and barely being able to walk or do really much of anything. I finally just got it into my mind that enough was enough. I did change my eating habits by following the Weight Watchers program. It was simple to me and I love to be organized. My workout routine started out at just five minutes a day because that’s all I could really do. Now, I do over 2 hours a day but not because I have to. It’s because I love it. Fitness is changed my life. I hit my goal of 180 pounds last year and I am now 210 pounds, probably because I have started weight training. It took me over 4 years. Never give up. Stop making excuses. If I can do it anyone can do it
Interview with Kathy Lee and Hoda.
7 years apart Same place Same Girl but such a different girl at the same time. 💯🙌♥ ▪ ▪ ➡2010 I had already lost about 80 lbs here. Barely could make it through half the zoo.🙁😣 ➡2012 -272 lbs so I was around 188 close to my smallest of 180lbs and though I define try made it round the zoo and had lost all my weight I wasn’t “happy” here. I was doing hours of cardio a week and no yoga. I was doing weight training but not like today. ➡2017 currently at 206lbs teaching body pump twice a week body flow three times a week and taking hot yoga any chance I can as well as hiking and combat and CXWORX and anything else I can do involving sweating and fitness💯💯💯🙌🙌🙌🙌 ▪ ▪ What do you notice (besides my ass lol) that’s most different…for my it’s my face. My smile my eyes I see the light in them now the peace the determination. I had it before but it’s easy to get caught up in a number and not how you feel. I no longer am that woman. I aim for health AND sexiness lol. I aim for peace and constant improvement of my mind body and soul.❤❤❤ NEVER GIVE UP MY WARRIORS Love you guys💜💖💚 @unendingbattle ⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋ For those who are new to my journey I followed @weightwatchers for four years and added fitness to my daily life.
