Well there it is. For the world to see. The top photo is from August 18, the day I started doing the Focus T25 workouts. I have had many trials through the program including redoing week 4 because I had a death in the family and had to travel to Ohio. But here I am 11 weeks later in the bottom photo taken this morning. Alpha and Beta complete, Gamma started today. My goals are more important today than ever before. Stronger, slimmer, and more confident. I was so hesitant to post this ANYWHERE online. Even my “closed”, “secret” Facebook groups. I felt afraid of judgement and ashamed of my body. Then I realized that I have absolutely NOTHING to feel that way for. I have made mistakes. I have fallen. I have failed. But I have also gotten back up, risen, and conquered the many things that I allowed to hold me back. This should be a moment that I take to feel great about myself and my progress. We all start somewhere. We all have a journey. Here is part of mine so that it might help to inspire or motivate, or give hope to someone else who is out there thinking about doing something to change themselves and wondering will they succeed. Will they make it? Will they fail? The first step is usually the most difficult. This was my first step to total transparency. I pray that it inspires someone, helps someone, motivates someone.
Have a great day!
