This is probably the most vulnerable, transparent, 100% honest photo comparison I've shared so far in this journey.
The photos on the left are from November 2016. I wish I could truly convey how much these pictures represent a physical display of how my unhealthy emotional and mental health was at the time , and how it impacted my physical health and appearance.
I had just bought those workout shorts, yall my stomach hung so far over it. I cried on my bathroom floor after I took these pics. I never realized truly how bad my physical health and appearance had gotten. I work spanx, shape wear, " slim" fit clothes. I lived in black, loose fitting clothes. I adore shape wear, no issues with it, but for me, rather than " smooth " out my outfit, I used it to hide as much as possible.
The photos on the right are from after my workout today. Am I perfect? Nah, won't ever be, and that's not the goal ( besides who's to say what's perfect?). I have a ways to go.. I am a work in progress. But today I looked at the photos on the left for the 1st time in months. I serves as a reminder of how good choices impact results. Each day is about " am I worth it?" And " are my choices showing I believe it?".. I was once so ashamed and embarrassed by where I was... but I look at the fact now represents not just a physical change and appearance, but also my emotional and mental health is amazing.
I was nervous to share this.
Scared people would laugh or whatever ... but I know me being open and vulnerable could help someone! #weightwatchers #healthyjourney #workinprogress #beforeandafter #shanisshedding #transformation #nonscalevictory #fitness #weightlosstransformation #wwsisterhood #wwcommunity
