So, I figured since I posted my before and after photos that I should probably say something here. My challenge was over a few days ago. I haven't eaten perfectly since and I don't plan on being perfect all the time. I did gain about two pounds back by the end of the challenge due to being sick and stress.
I know you're probably sick of hearing me talk about my feminine times, but I don't think you can underestimate the effect that it can have on a woman's body. Stress has made my period come two weeks early. This in turn doesn't help with bloating and my mood. It's a huge struggle. Not working out didn't help either, but I started back up challenges yesterday. I will be starting my running again soon as well.
My journey is far from over. Over the 24-days, I lost 5 lbs (gained 2 back) and lost about 5inches. I went from a 44in bust to a 42in. 31in waist to 30in. 44in hips to 43in. 25in thighs to 24.5in. I was extremely surprised with the change in measurements. I don't usually have changes in my hips and thighs. It was a pleasant surprise. I'm sure the working out on top of everything helped quite a lot.
You can say it was me over the products, but honestly, its the combination. I couldn't have done this without my amazing mentor. I love you so much already. You have helped me more than you know and I can't wait to see what the future brings. The team I'm now a part of can only help me get further. The pills that help cravings and the energy to keep me going are the best. I'm not going to change what works.
I have put my photos at the bottom. I'm hoping to see even more changes. It's not about the number on the scale for me. It's about how I feel and how comfortable I am. I am not quite where I want to be. It's a journey. I'm sure there will be more fluctuations, but that's a part of life and I'm not going to let it get me down. If you put your mind to it you can do anything. That doesn't make it easier, but you can do it.
