Body Confidence

Wednesday, July 01, 2015

For the first time since I was a teenager, I feel good about my body. I've only lost about 25 lbs and I'm still overweight, but damn...I'm starting to look hot! Even when I was 118 lbs when I turned thirty, I didn't feel this good about my body. My body is strong, it's becoming efficient, and it's mine!

It's hard to express to people how hard earned this body confidence is. I didn't even realize I had it, until I tried on an outfit (tight yoga pants and a tight t-shirt) and I looked at the mirror and didn't recognize the body standing in front of me. This is the results of CrossFit, Olympic Lifting, and gradually switching over to paleo. I dumped the sugar from my diet and have worked my butt off.

I know to many this will sound like vanity. To them I you like showing off a room you worked hard to decorate. Do you show off the beautiful craft items you make? I'm beginning to show off my results, because I have been putting hours of effort into myself. I have worked for every single visible muscle seen and every inch lost.

I wish everyone could feel like this! This feeling doesn't come from the scale, it comes from paying attention to my measurements and not being afraid to carry around a little muscle.
