Work. Cover Girl. Work.

Last week I had my best friend since 4th grade take some fitness photos for me. I’ve been asked for them a few times now and never had anything of great quality to provide (my iPhone selfies weren’t cutting it!), so I asked Jess if I could hire her for a couple hours and see what we could get. Considering neither of us had ever done a “fitness photoshoot” before I think we did pretty well! I’m most in love with the ones taken on the spin bike – I feel like it shows my true passion. Keep in mind I obviously still have more weight to lose but for once I am HAPPY with photos that someone else took of me – this never happens! If we want to be dramatic we can compare them to my before photos for fun – want to? Okay, lets do it!

Family Photo 2010.

This is the last family photo we have and it’s nowhere to be seen in our home because I can’t stand to see myself like that. How did I wake-up every day and look in the mirror and not want to stop and make a change? Regardless, I’m thankful one day I finally did wake-up and made the change and haven’t looked back, sure I’ve looked around on the journey but I’ve never stoppped or made a u-turn and I think that’s what’s most important.

Like I said before I used to hate having my photo taken – probally because I would realize how bad things had gotten – now I’m sure y’all are sick of my selfies on Instagram! Here’s some of my favorites from the photos the other day. We’re going to re-shoot the bike ones in a couple weeks to make them crisper – it will be fun to see how much I can change in a few weeks – challenge accepted!

Remember, Believe in yourself, Trust the process, Change forever. Don’t look back unless it’s to remind yourself how far you’ve come.
