My heaviest, I weigh 201 pounds. I was depressed. I would say to myself, I looked like trash. I had no self-love. I felt like I could never lose a weight until one day I started doing something about it. I have lost over 60 pounds. I am currently weighing 142 pounds after my weight loss journey. I was left with excess skin. I don’t like it. That I’m proud today. I will be meeting my friend, Jessica, and for the first time ever, she is going to see my loose skin ready.
I was never really overweight growing up until I got married and I had my first kid that’s when my weight started going up, I was a couch potato. All I did was eat. Watch TV, take care of my kids. That was pretty much my daily routine. I was depressed. Um, I was sad all the time. I never wanted to go go out because I always had trouble finding what to wear. Cause this didn’t look good or that didn’t look good. I didn’t like what I saw in the mirror. And I felt like I could never lose the weight. So that made me more depressed. I would always say to myself, Oh, I’m not worth it. I look like trash. I had no self love my life back then always consisted of two words. And that was, I wish I wish I was fit. I wish I was healthy. I wish I could look like that girl. I wish I could wear those jeans. I wish I could wear that top. It was so much wishing that I never did anything about it until one day I said, stop wishing for it and you know, and get to it. Like start doing something about it.
I started by counting my calories. I did portion controlled. I eliminated all the foods that were bad and I exercise daily. My heaviest, I weight 201 pounds. And I am currently weighing 142 pounds. I have lost over 60 pounds After my weight loss journey. I was left with excess skin. I like it, but I’m proud because it tells a story that I was able to lose the weight
I will be meeting my friend, Jessica, and for the first time ever, she is going to see my loose skin. I have decided to embrace my loose skin so I can send a message to other girls that it’s okay. That nobody’s perfect.
You ready to see me in a sports bra for the first time?
This is what my loose skin looks like. I know. I know it looks bad, girl. No, no. What do you think? That’s your journey right there? I know, I know. It’s just, it’s just, it’s just, you know, hard sharing that. You’re my best friend. So I wanted you to see, you know, the real meat, her transformation is amazing. Knowing her from your spec, you know, the way that she loves back then to how she’s changed. I mean, she inspires me. I have so much more confidence. I’m no longer depressed. I’m proud of myself. I feel great.
It looks really different. She looks and she looks beautiful.
I would tell people who are trying to lose weight to just go for it, to stop wishing and do something about it. If loose skin is what’s holding them back, like don’t, don’t let that be an excuse, you know, not to start your journey.
