You look healthy.

And by that I don’t mean you look fat.
I mean your face isn’t grey any more, the circles under your eyes aren’t so dark. Your lips aren’t cracked and dry and your hair isn’t thinning and brittle. I mean you seem more focused when I talk to you, You actually look at me and listen rather than being so unable to stay still or think about anything other than your illness that your eyes dart around the room and you nod manically the whole time I’m speaking. You seem calmer, stiller, quieter. You’re easier to have a joke with and you take things on board much more than you used to.
I mean you laugh now, you’re less serious. There’s life about you, it’s in your eyes and your smile, it’s in the way you speak and even in the way you go about your daily tasks. 

You look healthy. You look happy. It really, really suits you.

#throwbackthursday Top right pic is me, not at my heaviest, but probably 40+ pounds heavier than I am today. The girl in this pic was a mess… Hence the drunk sloppy pic of me on my ass. So unhappy, hated my body (despite losing weight), drank too much, & didn’t have my head on straight. Pic on the right - this girl has come so far… Happier, healthier, more in love with my body than I’ve ever been, stronger, #proud, & head on a little more straight.  😝 Today my mind is filled with reasons to love myself and my body, not hate it. Love yourself from the tip of your toes to the top of your head; it’s truly liberating and empowering. Plus, we all deserve our own love. 💜💜💜💕💕 ✌️#stophating #youarebeautiful #weightloss #fatloss #formerfatgirl #determined #motivated #healthy #wise #strong #crossfit #crossfitgirls #biceps #flex #beforeafter #fitfam #fitstagram #fitness #workout #drunkgirl #partygirl

@kzois and I switching it up with an evening #wod. Part A (shown) - emotm: 2 paused #frontsquats then 4 jump touches. I went up to 123 lb. front squats. Part B - 8 rounds 30 sec. #kettlebell swings + 30 sec. L-hang. I can honestly say my forearms have never been so tight after a wod before. It was gnarly but I loved every minute of it. 💪👊 #crossfit #crossfitgirls #workout #fitness #weightloss #strength #muscle #discipline #motivated #determined #capable #dowork #getoffyourass #fatloss (at CrossFit 818)

I don’t think I can do this.
I don’t think I will excel.
I’m scared.
I don’t know how.
I don’t have time.
I’m too busy.
My dog ate my motivation.
My dog ate the belief I had in myself.

#FAILURE

First step is believing in yourself and the next is action! Stop making excuses. Once you do doors open and amazing things happen!

I believe in me. I believe in you! Do you believe in you?

On success: &#8220;Work harder on yourself than you do on your job.&#8221; - Jim Rohn

Woke up before the birds, it was still dark out but had to get the hardest part of my day out of the way - #crossfit!! 133&#160;lb paused #backsquat!! 💪👊 Did somebody say #booty?! Per usual made breakfast, made my lunch, and got ready for work. Oh wait, before that, I took selfies. ;) #handlingshit

Been on an incredible life journey&#8230; always improving myself, body and mind! Super excited about tonight. Almost one month of dedicating all my free time to helping and empowering others is going to prove to be #successful. This new obsession I have next to crossfit has me feeling thankful and blessed. #ilovemylife 💕
