Hi Everyone
Hope you're well!
My trainer took some pictures of me. She said, put them on your blog, to show everyone how hard you're working!
I have looked and looked at the pictures. Thinking, should I or shouldn't I?
Then I thought, Stacy, you love yourself, so why shouldn't you? Why are you second guessing yourself.

Before I show my pictures, I have to tell you, I have never been a "tiny" lady! My weight has always went up and down. When I started my "loving myself" journey at the beginning of this year. I vowed to be the best version of me! And, you all know through this, I have looked at everything in my life, including the people around me. Learning so many things!!!

The first day at the gym, I did my fitness test and the girl who did my test, is actually the girl who is training me. Before she even started, I started to cry! All these emotions came out of me. And, you know what she said??/.. Stacy, I've have been where you are, I understand! I told her, I want to be healthy. If I lose weight great. If I tone up, great. But, I just want to be healthy.

Personally, I think this is the next step in loving myself. I really thought about when I would lose weight and then gain weight. First of all, I have never lost weight for myself. It has always been for another person, or to impress another person!

Then I thought, why would I gain it all back again? Well, I was doing it for the wrong reasons! Not for myself! So, back the weight would come on! And, I would gain more, because I was an emotional eater too!

Now, I am ready!!! I am doing this for me!!! I don't know what's going to come out of this journey of going to the gym. But, I'm inviting you all to come along with me.

They say to do things, that you fear. The biggest one for me this year, was chopping off my hair and showing the real me and this is the second and third thing, going to the gym and showing my pictures!

Yep, that's me! I want pizza! LOL!
Please, whatever you are scared of, just do it! Life is so short! You never fail, if you try. You only fail, if you don't try! LOVE YOURSELF!!! And, be the best version of you!

Let the gym journey begin!
Big Hugs!

  6. Go Stacy! You look so cute! Blogging about your journey is really going to inspire others. You can still have pizza. It just has to be a very thin crust loaded with your favorite veggies. :)

  7. Well, I love that top. And the sweat on your face. And you know what? I was feeling extra tired today. Had convinced myself that I needed another day of rest. But after seeing you kicking ass, I feel the need to get up and exercising too. I shall go for a run!

    Thank you, my Stacy love. ♥♥♥

  14. I used to think I had to be someone else for people to like me, but not anymore, why . . . because I no longer care what people think of me as long as I'm being me.

    Beautiful photos my friend.

  17. You are just absolutely the most warm-hearted person I have ever known. I'm so encouraged every time I come to your site. I know what you mean exactly about the weight issue. I've been there and done that always for someone else. It's for me now and has been since I started walking a year ago. When I was at the gym this morning I kept getting frustrated thinking about where I would be if I hadn't let fear (and these demanding headaches) get to me last march when I stopped exercising. Reading this has re-inspired me to keep going!

  22. Both of my tattoos were a gift to myself for weight loss,we really are soul sister . You see I like them a lot but rarely spend money on me, so every time I hit a big target Itreat myself to one! It doesn't hurt. It feels like a cat scratching you and the worst moments feel like slightly burning. But it is really tolerable!

  23. You are an inspiration Stacy. Your growth and ability to share your experiences thru it all are bright, shining examples of what the world needs a little more of these days. Bravo!

  24. Many comments have said what I am thinking, too! Do it for You and be content with all your hard work. It stinks to stink, lol, but keep doing what you set out to do. This combined with your landscaping will catapult you into the season of good health you are aiming for.

    Eating well for your body is half the battle. It wasn't until I knew how many carbs would make me gain weight, that I adjusted how many carbs I could and do eat. The weight burns away slowly, which is the best and most long lasting kind of weight loss. Maybe carbs are not your demon, but all I had to do was look at a donut or pizza and end up with extra pounds.

    Keep us posted, you are fabulous!!!
