I really needed to see this today. After a weekend of feeling like death from this bloody lurgy, I’ve been feeling very flat...and fat if I’m brutally honest. I’ve been scrolling through instagram and looking at so many inspirational accounts where people have lost an absolutely amazing amount of weight and completely changed their lives, and I think I’m not that person. I’m just a mummy who lost her baby weight. I still have my mum tum...my pouch as I call it...I shill have wobbly bits, I’m not a size 8, and there are times where I think should I be pushing to be smaller. Then I look at pictures like this one and I remember how far I’ve come. And I remember that happiness is not a dress size or a weight on the scales. It’s a feeling you feel when you are content and confident in the skin you’re in. And on the whole that is me. But when I’m run down I feel down and then I start to be hard on myself. I read a quote today along the lines of “be kind to yourself because you’re always listening” something like that...and it made me think...! I’m the only person who thinks negative things about myself sometimes and who’s opinion really bothers me. So today I’m posting a little bit of Sunday motivation for myself.

It’s like a Weightwatchers ‘Before & After’
📸📸😂 These pics were literally taken 5 days of each other, I took the one on the right before we were heading out for dinner one night👫🍴, I really liked my colourful print outfit but I didn’t post the picture coz a bit thin, it just didn’t look like the real me...
A little reminder when you see a pic online it’s not reflecting real life, good angles and lighting create false illusions📸

Transformation requires SACRIFICE.
Yes it was hard. Yes it took time. Yes it required dedication & willpower.Yes there was temptation.
BUT in the end it was all worth it.
This is just the beginning. I'm only getting started, and now it's all about setting new goals and breaking my limits.

#dietnutrisi Rasa lapar membuat tubuh merasa tertekan dan mulai mengakumulasi lebih banyak lemak, yang akhirnya mengumpul di pinggang, pantat, dan paha .
Maka dr itu meskipun perut masih kenyang tetaplah makan ketika sdh waktunya jam makan, jangan menunggu lapar. Mulailah dgn mengatur pola makan yg baik.
Diet bukan berarti menahan lapar. Lakukan diet yg nyaman dgn tubuh kita.
Kalau ada Diet yg mudah knp pilih yg sulit
Klo diet santai aja bisa bikin sehat dan langsing Kenapa pilih yg rumit??? Krn trendkah? Kekiniankah? Lbh wah kah?
Lakukan Diet dgn enjoy tanpa tekanan batin harus begini dan begitu. Makanya sy suka bingung ketika bbrp teman minta di buatkan susunan menu diet yg sy jalani agar mereka bisa meniru. Krn sy sendiri tdk pernah terpaku pada jadwal menu makanan.
Sy mah suka2 😂 sy memanfaatkan bahan yg ada di rmh jd acak2an gak bs di patok pagi harus ini, siang hrs itu dan malam hrs ini itu... Semua mengalir aja sesuai kantong dan gak mau ribet... Yg penting tidak mlenceng dan ada batasannya Ok kan darling's? Tanya coach @nikiwijayanty
Мини-Смузи-Набор 🥦🍋🍓🥭🍎🥝🍇🥬🍌 Вчера говорила с девочкой, которая весит 110 кг. Дак вот она купила себе блендер летом и его не использует. Я не понимаю 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️
Он ведь идеален для похудения! Последние килограммы у меня ушли только благодаря ему.
If I can do this, so can you✨
4.5 stone lost. Biggest size 22 ➡️ size 6.
Want to lose weight? Create a calorie deficit - burning more energy then you consume. Work out your BMR and find out where a suitable calorie deficit is - and stick to it.
Want to lose fat? Again, calorific deficit. But also - high protein and strength training. Building lean muscle while burning fat takes time. Remember that muscle weighs more than fat. Also remember the more muscle you build the more calories you burn while resting.
I went from being overweight and losing weight, to loosing too much and being bony/skinny fat, to gaining too much fat, to then slowly focusing on fat loss and muscle building.
Remember this is a process. It won’t happen overnight. It will take trial and error, and it will be up and down. But it’s worth it, when you stick to it and push through.
You’re creating a lifestyle change - ditching bad habits and replacing them with new healthy ones, building a stable relationship with food, getting your body moving and your mental clogs ticking. Be patient and kind with yourself.
And please, be safe. Take your time, there’s no rush. Have fun! This is exciting. And good luck, you’ve got this.✨

i feel like i'm in a revolving mess as of late.
i can't control my eating and i'm obsessing over food. ALL i can think about is eating shit, which leads me to eating shit, and then feeling like shit 💩

like shoving my face with food every two hours for absolutely no reason!

but as i've said a few days ago, I Will NEVER Give Up! I Will Keep Trying AGAIN Every Day!
because i only truly Fail when i quit!

This is @bodyrebooted! An awesome #DDPY transformation AND a kick ass instructor! This is her story: “I was the unhappiest I have ever been in my entire life. At one point, my little boy placed his hand on my arm and looked into my eyes and said, "Smile Mommy". I knew right then that my grief and sadness wasn't just affecting me - it was affecting my entire family and it was time to make a change.
I had suffered a very late-term miscarriage in October 2012.
The loss resulted in depression, anxiety, and a huge body image problem to go along with the extra weight.
I have struggled with my weight on and off since my mid 20's. I've gained, I've lost and I've gained again. Each time trying a new diet, a new gym, or a new home fitness program, but nothing seemed to last.
In March of 2013 my husband showed me Arthur Boorman's inspirational video and I haven't looked back since. I started the program on April 1st, and within 3 months I had already lost 41 pounds. Two months after that I lost a total of 60 pounds and dropped from a size 18 to a size 6! One year later the weight is still off and I'm stronger, leaner, and more flexible than ever.* But that's not all...DDP YOGA hasn't just changed my body - it's changed my life!
I changed careers and became certified in nutrition and wellness, wrote a cookbook, and became the co-first female Certified DDP YOGA Instructor in the world, with my great friend and hardcore sister, Liz Collins. I also co-won the DDP YOGA Inspirational Challenge (with Liz) and run a blog that was originally intended to keep me accountable during my weight loss journey, but has transformed into this amazing platform to help others. At BodyRebooted.com you can find gluten-free recipes, product reviews, giveaways, fitness challenges, DDP YOGA success stories, motivational quotes, and more!”
