Happy weekend! It is an exciting weekend over here, for me. It is my best friends bachlorette party tonight! Calgary look out!
the beautiful bride and I!
Anywho, the point of my post this morning, is a combination of explaining myself, if you are wondering, and revealing a piece of my past that has really helped create who I am.
If you have been following my blog for a while then you know I am on a fitness journey. I am working with taycfitness, and the workouts have been so hard and so intense, the meal plan has been so so clean and my body is changing in a way in a way I have never seen before.
Last night I posted on my facebook, and instagram (brianneamber) my current progress, where I am in my bra and underwear. I was so impressed with my progress, I wanted to share with the world.
Growing up I was the girl who was overweight, had no self confidence. I completely ate my feelings, I didn’t know how to express them, so instead of talking about things, I would eat, and eat and eat.
I had a nickname of BB (big Brianne), could never catch people when playing tag, because of my weight. Growing up like this was hard. I felt like I wasn’t worthy of anything.
When I was 16 I decided to make a change, I wanted to lose weight and see what might be different. I lost a big chunk of weight, and i grew a lot of confidence.
Since I’ve been training with Taycfitness, I’ve gotten that confidence back. I finally feel comfortable in my body. I am proud of the progress I have made. Every time I look in the mirror and send in my weekly progress shots, I smile.
Every time my coach sends me back saying how proud she is of my progress. It takes away a little of the hurt I have been carrying around for years for all the times I was made fun of for my weight. I don’t come home crying anymore, because of what people have said. Instead I come home and am proud to look in the mirror, proud of my body and proud to be who I am.
So if you think I am putting up pictures for everyone’s attention, I am doing it to remind myself that I am worthy of greatness. I am worthy of feeling confident and I am worthy of being proud of my body.
This journey isn’t for anyone else, it is for me.
2.5 months of training!
So my friends, whatever you decide to do, do it for you. I always attached a lot of meaning to what other people thought of me. I thought I wasn’t worthy of love, worthy of happiness. But I am worthy of those things, regardless of whatever anyone else thinks of me.
This blog is about nourishing whatever you love, but most importantly for me, it is about nourishing self love.
Happy Saturday my loves
