Almost to 10 lbs! I just want to make it to 15, because that will be the lowest I've been in FOREVER. 😭😭❤️❤️

Here's me hiding behind a prop. I know we all do this. Hide behind a person or thing. Maybe turn a different angle to look thinner.
This was my sister's wedding and it was a beautiful day but I was uncomfortable in my own skin that day. I started #keto 13 months later.
I’ve lost 80lbs since I started working with a trainer. I’ve turned the gym into an outlet for anxiety that I’ve been holding on to for a couple of years. I’m making progress and got to keep on grinding.
In both of these pictures I had just finished a workout. The difference in the left vs the right is WAY more than just 90 lbs. the difference in my success this time is my PLAN. I have a goal and a plan that is going to get me there. I am consistent, I don’t skip workouts, I don’t eat things that are going to make me feel like crap. I work on being patient every day. I have come to the understanding it isn’t going to happen over night. Each small change has me that much further along than I have ever been. #transformationtuesday#weightlossjourney#weightloss#fattofit#obesetobeast#crossfit#crossfitlife#crossfitforlife

5 years. 👋 (Important)
Facebook has kindly reminded me that another year has passed since I started this, that I'm getting old, and that I'm hopefully healthier than I used to be.
With school starting, it means new opportunities at Church to be connected and learn. These are my current personal development reads. I LOVE the disciple series and haven’t done them in a while. The fact that we are doing this one excites me immensely! .
Are you spiritual? Religious? All of the above? What do you read for personal development?
This morning I really did not want to go to the gym. I made myself go anyway and I could not get my head into the right space to focus on my work out. I normally work out an hour every morning but today I was only able to stay for 30 minutes before I couldn't take it anymore. I know I shouldn't be disappointed with myself and I should have listened to my body when I got up. Does anyone else get in these funks?
I love how Matthew doesn't just talk about weight loss. It's mainly about getting into a healthy place mentally! "The guy on the left lived pretty much the exact same life year after year. He was 50 pounds overweight, stuck, depressed, living an unmotivated and unbalanced life, and was afraid to change. I can't believe how much my life has changed in the last 8 years because of this program and becoming a coach. While there have been some external changes as I’ve lost the weight and gotten healthy, the majority of the change has been on the inside. In the last 8 years I've worked harder on changing my thinking than anything else. I'm intentional about what I fill my mind with and who I give my time to. I'm still afraid sometimes. But it's a different kind of fear. It's not about being afraid of change or even failure. It's being excited and out of my comfort zone because I'm doing things that are causing me to grow. The guy on the right is me now living a motivated and intentional life of adventure and I’m never looking back!" #certifiedhealthcoach#healthyhabits#healthychoices#lifelongtransformation#joinme#liveyourbestlife#obesetobeast

Two ESP days back to back?
LOOOOOVED this class. Its been a minute since we’ve incorporated the BOSU into the floor block.
Studio was super humid today, but it made for a good workout. 🤷🏻♀️ #tuesdaymotivation
👩🏼 Yesterday right after the 2.5 miles in mostly the blazing sun. It was mostly down hill, but the sun beating down on me was brutal. And wearing sunscreen seemed to make it worse because I felt like it was trapping in all the heat but had a constant layer of sweat. Also I didn’t wear my hat which was a mistake. The journey was to my daughter’s school to show her how to ride the public bus home and which stop to get off. She thinks I look ridiculous in a hat. So I didn’t want to embarrass her. You know what, screw that. In the future I’m going to be wearing it if I want and not because of anybody else’s opinion. Also all of my exercising lately is with purpose. To accomplish getting to point A to point B for a reason. That way it’s not “just exercise “ which I can postpone or do later. But a necessity to get what I need done. Very helpful. #obesetobeast#nopainnogain#keepingitreal#babysteps#exercisewithpurpose#100lbstolose
From living in the background of my own life to embracing my life and myself to the fullest every single day! I want to take a minute to say hi 👋 to my new followers and reintroduce myself. My name is Alicia AKA Lish and I’ve lost over 110 pounds since last June, but the most important changes I’ve made are not outwardly visible. When I started this journey I was in a very dark and hopeless place. I felt as though I was barely existing and knew if I didn’t choose to get healthy and actually live, my life was going to continue in the same downward spiral of hopelessness. So I chose to try. I chose to believe in myself and believe it was possible. Even though I didn’t really at first, I kept telling myself until it became my reality. Even though I didn’t think I could, I chose to love and embrace myself as I am in the present, because I realized that’s what I needed to make progress towards my goals. It hasn’t been easy & I’m not done yet, but I’m doing it and I’m never giving up! I’ve learned to love the journey and that’s been the most incredible part of all of this. To anyone out there who’s watching and wanting to better themselves, know that you can do this too. I am SO SHOOK that I reached 10 thousand followers while I was in Greece & I’ve been trying to find the best way to say thank you, but I’m still at a loss. When I started this account I didn’t even post pics of myself, I was just here to document my progress, and find motivation. I never imagined anyone would be interested in my journey, but I’m glad one day I got brave enough to speak my truth into the scary vastness of cyber space, bc this community has embraced me & shown me nothing but love ever since. You all have helped me manifest my dreams, held me accountable, helped me stay on track and motivated, even when I wanted to give up. I can’t even express how grateful I am for the support you all have shown me and the friendships I’ve made here, but THANK YOU to each and every one of you ♥️
LIFE IS A MATTER OF CHOICES, and every choice you make makes you.
-John C. Maxwell
If you’re new to my journey, welcome 💛. I am so honored you’d choose to walk a leg of this journey alongside me. I don’t sugarcoat, cover up, gloss over or mask my journey here. I talk about things I’m gROWing through in the hopes that my process will encourage you to KNOW that YOU can do the same. Not because I did it, but because we both have the greatest power every bestowed on a human being and that is the power of CHOICE.
Twenty eight months ago I’d reached an intersection in my life where I came face to face with having to make such a choice: either choose to get busy living or get busy dying:
I chose life 💛
On 4-10-17 at the age of 44 weighing 404.4 lbs I decided my past would no longer dictate my future and I chose to try again. That single choice has been compounded by a million choices after it. Some good, some not so good, but always MY choices.
To date, at 46 yrs old, I’ve lost more than half myself: -210 lbs naturally so says the scale, but the scale is only one chapter of the story 💛 WELLNESS is the real goal.
In Mind Body + Soul.
To not only live, but to LIVE WELL!!
When you hear people talk about their “why”, THAT is my why.
Not rich, not without struggle, not easy, but well!
By dropping the excuses, accepting ownership over my own power of choice, then putting my creative mind to work to find a solution I’m reaping the benefits of my choices.
I am living well, and the truth is that YOU CAN TOO!
What I’ve done IS NOT SPECIAL, secret, hard, strange, or mysterious.
For me, I switched to a Clean Eating lifestyle which means I eat as close to nature as possible. I exercise moderately. I fuel my mindset like CRAZY and I DO NOT eliminate, deprive or starve myself of anything!
But NO DIET will work unless you do.
The power to choose your outcome is your greatest asset!
You’re going to get results either way. Choose wisely and the results you get will be the ones you truely want 💛
I’m cheering for you to make good ones!
I won't lie. This summer has been a struggle. I have not been in a good mental space majority of the time. I have lost very little weight and feel it is a miracle I haven't gained. But I am still pushing and trying my best and am proud of how far I have come. I had bought this shirt as a reward outfit after losing like 15 lbs. It reminds me what I accomplished and how I can and will keep pushing in this last bit of my weightloss journey because I have a healthywage to win! 💪
