What you see vs. me…

True Story: I almost didn’t post this picture last week.
.
Then I had to laugh at myself as I read some of the comments… not once did someone mention the ONE thing that was glaringly obvious to me.
.
Know what it is was?! 🤔
The little extra chunk and cellulite on my legs.
.
I wanted to share this to prove a point. We are in fact our own worst critics. The things you notice on yourself, pull apart, that seem sooooo obvious to you… are often times invisible to others.
.
Stop being your own worst critic and start trying to see yourself through the eyes of others.💕
.
Sure you may never match the “perfect” photoshopped images you see on social media, but you are YOU and that is something you should be so PROUD of. Own it. Little extra on the thighs and all. 😘

Reality Check

Reminder… just because it looks like someone has it all together on social media doesn’t mean that’s always true. 💕

I should be in Mexico today on an all expenses paid vacation that I worked my butt off for. 🍍

Reality: I’m in Massachusetts. Trying to figure out a last minute move after a mini flare up of anxiety and depression.

I didn’t want to be the third wheel on vacay.

I was nervous to fly to Mexico alone.

I have a great job that I love. An awesome place to live, and soon a new one. And for the most part tend to have my you know what put together, but I have my obstacles too.

I’m sharing all this not for sympathy. I’m honestly quite happy with my decision, but because I never want to pretend my life is perfect.

And reality is: no one has it all together. So next time you look at that “perfect” person remember… their reality is probably very different than their “gram”. ✌️

Important Reminder

Reminder: Social Media is a highlight reel… but there is a purpose behind those “perfect” photos.
.
I got a message the other day from someone who told me that I give women unrealistic expectations of weight loss by sharing before and after pictures.
And honestly, it REALLY bothered. 🤔
.
The LAST thing I would EVER want to do is enhance poor body image for other ladies. So it got me to thinking, why do I share these insane before and after transformations from some of our programs?!
.
I do it to share what’s POSSIBLE. 👙
To show other women that they aren’t alone in their struggles. 👯
To INSPIRE women to take action. 

I know the pain of not feeling comfortable in your own skin… but I also know there is light on the other side. And it’s my goal to help you find it. You in?! 💕
