This is the literal nastiest thing I will probably ever share and also one of the most vulnerable. Deep breath, here we go!
I’ve been a runner a little over 5 years now. I learned when I lost 100lbs the first time & stuck with it even at higher weights (I just got slower and more aches and pains).
Back in the beginning when she was single and lived closer I’d sometimes run with my SIL. She’s an iron man athlete. She’d tell me to learn to pee on myself. I couldn’t. I couldn’t so much so that I gave up 20 minutes of my time during the OKC half marathon in 2014 to stand in a huge line and then use a porta potty.
Well tonight, I did it! And then I got all emotional because it was like it broke a glass ceiling!
Peeing on myself was my body and soul’s way of telling my brain I would not stop. My brain screamed: “You’ve hit a limitation; a hardship! Don’t move anymore,” but my heart screamed back “No! I made a goal to run for an hour and 5 miles non stop so I will not stop.”
And oh how I think that is the difference. “I will not stop.” No for pee. Not for soreness. Not for discomfort. Not for it being awkward when I eat grilled chicken and my friends get enchiladas. Not for the 1078373th baby carrot I wished was pizza. No. I won’t stop. I’ll press on even though it’s hard/embarrassing/awkward/uncomfortable.
That’s what it takes to succeed. No, you don’t have to actually pee on yourself but here’s what you do have to do... you have to WANT it and WORK so hard for it too.
The want and the work. The drive. The commitment to your success. Sister, I want these things for you. Will you work on them for yourself?
(& can we talk Mindset? I went from a girl who wore jeans and a sweater to WDW w/ 3 layers of make up to someone who can post her pee on the internet. I regret nothing, but oh the years I let weight hold me back, define me, and stop me from shining as bright as He made me to shine.)

Confession: I gained about 9 lbs and 5 inches of carb bloat (read: inflammation) during my birthday blowout. I spent a week on vacation in Oregon eating and drinking whatever I felt like, but went straight back on IP protocol for a week. Then I had an office birthday celebration with my coworkers followed by a wonderful dinner with the family. My weigh in was the next day and I had quite the wake up call. Turns out my post-extreme-weight-loss body is REALLY carb sensitive. Like, really really. Fortunately, after three days on strict Phase 1, I’m nearly back where I started before my vacation. Just gotta keep it going! 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼
I used to have MAJOR #digestive problems. I had 7 #rectal#surgeries for #fistulas (definition: anal abscess--- NOT PRETTY and VERY painful!). Because I would literally NOT GO for a week, then the next week, I would have to live in the bathroom because I could not leave my house for fear of an accident happening. That's no way to live.
I first tried my products (Probio5, Biocleanse, Slim) in Dec. 2012. Within the first month, I noticed a #difference. The no-go week was turning into a few days no-go, and the have-to-go-right NOW bathroom trips were just once in a while. Within 2 months, I wasn't having ANY no-go days, and just a few have-to-go-right-NOW #bathroom trips in a month. Within 3 months, I was completely #NORMAL.
What's the #bigdeal?
Well, for me, it was a #HUGE deal. I could leave my house and not worry about having an accident!
That #bloatedbelly I had for years had shrunk so I didn't look 6 months pregnant anymore.
AND no more #medications and no more surgeries!!!! I can't begin to tell you how it has #changed my #life. For example, I can plan all day #excursions to a theme park and not have to worry every minute about where the nearest bathroom is. Do you know how huge that is? Just ONE of the many reasons I'll NEVER stop taking these products and why I'm so #passionate about them.
If this will #help even one other person out there who has these same #problems (or knows someone who does) then it's been worth it to me. I'm not saying these products WILL help you, as they can't #cure anything, but why not give them a try? If they don't help, you get your #moneyback, so there's #norisk.
The rest of my story: I don't have #headaches now (you know, the kind where you have to go to bed in a dark, quiet room!), or low #bloodsugar episodes, I have more #energy, AND I’ve lost 48 pounds since May 6 on the new Slim Hunger Control, Lean meal replacement and Block! I’m so #excited! I plan to be at my #goal weight of #100lbsLOST by the end of the year!
Posted a long blog yesterday - the link is in my profile. You sometimes just have to say F- It and just get out of your comfort level! It gets hard when you are always on display! Fight it and just let it go!
My mom use to appologize for passing down her "tree trunk" legs,
But I quite like them.
All my life I have been like the size of two people,
Maxing out around 330lbs,
So these legs have a lot of muscle from carrying all that around faithfully.
These babies have cellulite, lots of flab, varicose veins, lots of scars,
And even tho I have lost almost 100lbs... my calves and thighs are still so big I can't get into anything smaller than a size 16...
I have a long way to go,
But despite all the numbers and standards from society... Everytime I look at them, I think Damn...
Hey girl, way to go.
It feels good to have the workouts, the roadmap, and the plan to get to my healthiest and strongest body.
I am in the car, on this journey....
Unclear of how the destination will look exactly, but I am on my way!! #legprogress#liftingmotivation#strongerlegs#hiitcardioworkout#legburn#100lbslost#fitandthick
Blurry photo, still sleepy I guess 🤷♀️. A huge egg stuffed with ham and turkey sausage topped with cheese, one piece of toast and some #proffee , I’m going to be eating this all morning, but full of protein.

✨Today marks 1 year since I had gastric sleeve surgery!!!✨ Can’t believe how far I have come in just one year. I can honestly say that I am so proud of myself, it took discipline and motivation to get where I am!!! I’m not yet where I want to be on my journey, but just seeing these before and after pictures empower me to push myself even harder. My transformation isn’t over.... #WaitOnIt
Well, it took exactly one year, one month, and one week, but the deed is finally done, as far as losing all the fat that is. I was once 264 lbs. and now I'm a spry 164 lbs! I never trully envisioned being able to consistently lose fat and have it feel eternal until I adopted the Ketogenic lifestyle. #keto#intermittentfasting#100lbslost#drberg#ketogenic#ketosis
