I promised myself I wouldn’t go to Red Robin this…

I promised myself I wouldn’t go to Red Robin this week. I’m so, so close to onederland and I want to get there so bad! But, shit happens. I went to happy hour last night with my friend and we split nachos and drank a glass of wine. Ok, I had two glasses of wine. Then when I got home, I was still hungry, so I whipped up a box of Annie’s mac and cheese for me and my boo. Not my finest day. I went to bed feeling bloated, a little gross, and slightly disappointed in myself. Before I fell asleep, I was looking through some old photos and found this one (left). My jaw dropped.

Damn y’all! Look how far I’ve come!

The photo on the left was taken on my 23rd birthday, May 2015. The right is today. I love these side-by-side because they remind me that bad days are just a drop in the bucket compared to my journey overall. I have come SO FAR, not only with the numbers on the scale but with my relationship to food and exercise and my confidence in myself and my body. Feels so good 💪🏻

So even though today I’m having a bad hair day, even though my skin is breaking out like crazy, even though I had a cheat day yesterday, I feel super motivated to power through! And so good about myself and my progress!

Today my coworker asked if I was “still trying to lose weight” because I look “so skinny” – of course I said yes. I don’t talk about my weight loss at work that much because 1- everyone does and it’s kind of annoying, and 2- this has always been a hard thing for me to deal with. So when someone notices and says something, I know I really must be working hard.

I’m on track with my points today, got a free salad for lunch 🙌🏻, and am mentally prepared to have my ass handed to me at the gym tonight. Dinner is zoodles and ground turkey. I’ve got breakfast and lunch prepped for the last two days of this week. Nothing can stop me, y’all!

Hope everyone is having a good hump day and a positive week. Remember: the scale is only a small fraction of your journey. There are so many things to celebrate along the way. 🤗
