This is one of those pinch me moments...I can not believe I am celebrating this non scale victory!
My journey started out 23.5 months ago. I started working out daily from home, eating clean, drinking Shakeology & participating in online accountability groups. In the beginning of my journey I did write down that one of my goals was to wear a bathing suit, be comfortable enough in one to enjoy swimming, boating & water sports with my 3 children. I was so excited I finally achieved that over this past summer. Jumping off the boat, tubing, playing on the beach & not a care in the world about what I looked like….it was completely freeing.
Staying on this journey is non negotiable for me because it has become my new lifestyle, it truly has been life changing in so many ways. In a few weeks I will be on a cruise that I earned for my husband & I. I never pictured myself wearing a bikini on this cruise….ever! The last time I wore one was on our honeymoon in 2002. I have been shopping for weeks & have not been able to find anything, so I decided to order one online. I came across this bathing suit & thought I would love to wear that one day & then I thought why not now? So I bravely ordered it & It arrived this weekend. I put it on & almost couldn’t believe what I saw. I thought could I really pull this off, is this really my body??? I took a picture & shared it with a couple close friends, showed my mother & my husband….I don’t know why I felt like I needed everyone’s opinion, but I almost couldn’t believe this was real.
So in a couple weeks I am packing a bikini for our cruise. I never thought this was possible. I still have scars, stretch marks & a little bump from those 3 miracles I gave birth to, but finally I have abs again. I am going to embrace this imperfectly perfect hard working healthy body & not have a care in the world on our cruise….as I am typing this I still can’t believe I am celebrating this non scale victory!
To every mom out there that thinks this isn’t possible like I thought, I am proof that we are so wrong! This is totally possible! It takes changing your lifestyle, patience with your body, hard work, dedication & believing in yourself. If you need the right tools & support to help you get there, I would be honored to be the one that gets to help you do that! Message me & we can chat! I hope the next non scale victory I am celebrating is yours!
