Alright. So real talk here. So a few months ago, my doctor told me I needed to do something about my weight. My body couldn't handle the physical stress. So I signed up for weight loss surgery. but I wasn't approved by my insurance. So I could still get it, but I'd have to pay completely out of pocket. So I searched for new fad diets that would help me, and for weight loss pills. But nothing worked. Then I started following this girl on Insta. She was crazy inspiring. I knew instantly I wanted to be like that. I wanted to be the one inspiring people to live a better life, a healthier life. I wanted to be fit like that. I wanted to feel comfortable wearing bikinis to the beach like she did. And I'd messaged her a few times, telling her how much she inspired me. Because I feel like that's a thing you should tell people, that they're helping someone. She mentioned to me that I could live the same kind of lifestyle. Happy, healthy, and successful. I thought she was nuts!! I thought there was NO WAY that could ever be me. But I kept watching her posts. Looking forward to them every day. And she reached out to me again. Not in a rude or demanding way, but just reminding me that she is here to support me if I would like her support. Her support and that of dozens of other women in the same boat as me. Now THAT got my attention. I know myself. I need support. I need accountability. I've tried working out before and have ended up quitting after 2 days. I need someone to tell me to get off my ass and do my workout. It's only 30 minutes! So I really considered it. But I didn't really have the extra money. I mean, does anybody honestly have the extra money? But I took that leap of faith and joined my coach @fitbritttolson. I trusted her. Now, was that one of the better things I could have spent my money on?? ABSO-FREAKING-LUTELY!!!! My life is completely different than it was a few months ago. I still have my bad days, but don't we all?? And when I do have bad days, my girls are right there. They've got my back and I've got theirs.I never thought I'd make it this far. Even though I still have quite a ways to go, i am PROUD of myself.
