Today was check-in day with my trainer. I sent her the same information I do every week: measurements, weight, pictures, and an update on my diet and workouts. She then sent me a side by side comparison of where I started and now. Wow! What a difference.
It’s true: you are your own worst critic. Through this process, I have questioned myself on many occasions. I felt like I wasn’t getting the results I wanted, but when I saw that photo, I completely changed my mind. The picture from three months ago didn’t even look like me. I was truly blown away by the difference.
I’ve always been extremely self-conscious about my body. Never in a million years did I see myself telling my trainer she had my permission to post my picture on social media. Today is different. I am proud of my success and change. I allowed her to post the photo, and the positive feedback I received was just as inspiring as seeing my transformation. I received several texts, private messages, requests for more information, and sweet words of encouragement.
I loved it. My confidence has shot through the roof. Today, I walked out of the house not only feeling content with myself, but truly feeling good about how I look. It is such an amazing feeling, and I never want lose this confidence.
