Last week I posted a picture of myself on Instagram that showed my back sweat (I know, sexy, right?) and the caption was "You got to sweat like a pig and work like a horse to look like a fox". I came across that picture again last night and I remembered I had taken a similar picture a while ago and I wondered what the difference might be.
Are you curious too? Good, cuz here it is.
Yo. Look at me!!! I can't stop looking at this picture. The difference is so apparent!!!
The picture on the left was me 8 weeks ago. That was taken 5 weeks after I had started Weight Watchers and working out every single day. Eight weeks of work - I knew I was gaining muscle and losing SOME weight, but I didn't know how drastic the difference was in how I looked till I put these two pictures side by side.
This came just in time too, because the other day I was really stressed at work - there's another thing I discovered, I am hands-down a stress-eater: my blood pressure rises and I want to throw my diet out the window and blow it on cheeseburgers and milkshakes and Skittles - and actually lost my appetite at lunch and didn't finish my salad because I just had WAY too much to do and was entirely overwhelmed. I was feeling really down and annoyed and irritated and I was about to start cheating on my diet and screw it all - and then I saw this side by side picture - and it was all I needed to stay inspired to keep at it. Look at the difference I am making in myself.
In another 6 weeks when I go to Hawaii, I WILL LOOK EVEN BETTER.
I am so proud of myself. This picture makes me so, so happy. Like, I want to print it and frame it. I'm ecstatic.
