#transformationtuesday 🤭 I remember just like it was yesterday taking the top 3 pictures. It was July 2014 I put on these shorts weighing my heaviest 201 pounds and started recording myself and posing. I said to myself these shorts will be the ones where I will see my progress. And here I am today at 137 pounds with the same pair of shorts taking my afters pictures. I can definitely say I am so proud of myself because I’ve come so far with struggles and obstacles but never giving up! 🤩
And please remember no matter how slow your progress is never give always be patient! Everyone starts somewhere, and don’t ever compare yourself to others!💕
We fit perfectly together like two peas in a pod🥰 It’s so amazing having him be able to wrap his arm(s) completely around me! And peep that gap between my legs now! but anyway, I want to give a shoutout to the man by my side❤️ You’ve always loved me unconditionally. You loved me when I hated myself, had drunken rages/tried picking fights, and when I hit rock bottom. You helped me brush myself off and helped me grow. You gave me the time and space I needed to heal. You showed me endless support and the definition of unconditional love.
Every day with you is a gift! When I used to question myself while in my past relationships wondering “don’t I deserve more?” the answer was Hell Yes!! I’m beyond thankful I finally decided to listen to that little voice- which ultimately lead me to You! You are the best thing to ever happen to me!
I know you won’t see this baby because you can’t stand social media and don’t have an insta lol. But I’ll make sure to tell you these things as soon as I see you.
◾️I know some women feel you’ll find your soulmate when you are grown and have your shit together. But I don’t agree with that. I was a complete Mess when I met mine. I believe you meet your soulmate when you stop allowing yourself to settle for less than what you Truly Deserve!◾️
You may be a mess, but you Deserve someone caring, loving, thoughtful, loyal, and someone who will give you their whole heart.
Don’t Settle For Less!

#PROJECTCOMEBACK 3 week #progress update 🌸 here’s the quick rundown:
• I feel WAY less bloated overall
• Feeling SO STRONG in my workouts and yoga practice
• I feel like I’m in a really good routine now and haven’t bailed on my commitments yet- I really feel like my commitments are starting to become HABITUAL!
• Cravings have dissipated (except I ate 2 cookies on Valentine’s Day then literally couldn’t stop thinking about sugar for 2 days, YIKES.. sugar is the dev 😬)
• I still haven’t had any alcohol (it’s been 52 days!) I have no plans when it comes to this other than just listen to my body and be mindful moving forward.
• I’ve been REALLY diligent about keeping my eating window between 8am-8pm (except for one evening that I didn’t plan well for 🙄😅)
• I’m feeling so much happier, more confident and infinitely more productive since starting this challenge! It’s amazing!

I present you with why I argue (and get a bit upset) whenever I see the frequent comment “You’re so lucky you kept your boobs! I’m so jealous!” Ummmm no no, honey! I sure didn’t keep them, and I promise that you would not be jealous if you knew how they looked without a bra!
PSA: I STRONGLY advise against saying to someone how “lucky” they are for X, Y, or Z in relation to their body after weight loss because: 1️⃣ You never truly know from just seeing a picture, and 2️⃣ you’re most likely not comparing apples to apples. It’s all about perspective! Starting out as an overflowing L cup, of course my chest is still going to be big after weight loss compared to someone who started as a C or DD. That doesn’t mean I didn’t lose a TON of weight there or that they look good or normal still when they’re not covered by clothes. In fact, I’ve lost most of the volume in them and I swear they’re mostly loose skin at this point. They are hands down my biggest insecurity!
With all that being said, I would NEVER trade the good health that I’ve gained through this process to get my “good boobs” back. Just like the rest of the loose skin all over my body, it’s trivial compared to being 28 years old and in constant physical pain from carrying over 350lbs around on my 5’1” frame. I’ll take all the loose skin in the world over being afraid I won’t live to see my 30th birthday!!

Things are hard before they are easy ~ Goethe
Ever since I started teaching Group Fitness, I have had way too many conversations that start with "I can't do that workout"...so let's talk about MODIFYING. Grab pen and paper...are you ready??? Modification Tips:
You do your best! Nothing more and nothing less.
You're out of breath? Slow down.
You're legs are burning🔥march in place.
Can't jump because you're joints hurt? Don't jump!
You can't maneuver the Step because you don't trust your balance and agility? Use the floor!
Modify however YOU can do it. You don't see small kids quitting when they can't walk to where they want to go...they modify....they scoot, crawl or hold on to something.
Are you ready to do this?!
Transformation Thursday! Weekly Update!
5 weeks and 17 pounds gone!
This week I was a hot mess! 😆 I was super sick, couldn’t push as hard in my workouts, or do them at all, I felt so shitty I couldn’t prepare meals for myself so I had a lot of blood sugar drops, and meals that were “fast” and not as nutritious as normal. With all that, I still dropped a pound so ain’t even mad!
But truthfully, I’m not expecting to drop weight fast. And in fact, I think things will start to slow down for me now as permanent changes begin to happen. And I’m cool with that because this time my journey is all about healthy choices and making a lifestyle out of this.
The crazy thing I’m starting to notice is how my behavior with food is changing. I am choosing not to have the crap because of the way I am beginning to see how it makes me feel. Or if I choose to eat something that’s less than, I don’t over do it. This is a HUGE NSV for me because my relationship with food was unhealthy and by that I mean I had unhealthy emotional and mental attachments to foods.
Seriously ladies, if you are struggling with that, reach out to me. I GET IT.

Dinner today was left overs - struggling with what to have for tea now as I need to go food shopping 🤔 -
I have never particularly liked cooking. This journey has opened my eyes to understanding that a quick cooking session can create really tasty meals. And by cooking more it’s saving my bank account. 😆 Today it’s just some basic chicken, but that’s still better than a drive-thru quick meal.
Just because I know some of you guys need to see that what you "consider to be impossible" really is POSSIBLE!!! Its important to start off slow.. dont promise to earn goals that are out of reach. Not saying you cant accomplish them over time! Just dont expect to lose a hundred pounds in a month and get angry or doubt yourself after the 30 days have past and you didnt reach goal.
The first picture I was 229 I remember clearly because I'd been wearing my waist trainer religiously!! To work, gym even slept in it a few nights... and I was angry I had only lost about 6 or 7 lbs.. I doubted myself, wondered if wearing that waist trainer was worth all the pain and suffering 😟 Needless to say I gave in to my cravings out of anger and the next couple days were hard for me. But I reminded myself of what I had already accomplished and I got right back to buisness. Its taken me 3 years almost 4 to reach my goals some what.. truth is I dont ever want to reach a certain goal I want to evolve constantly ( for the better) shorter cardio time, higher reps, higher endurance! In mix of all that I aim to show others that they are capable of anything they choose to do. I love sharing my story not only on insta but with coworkers friends family, even strangers or my patients. I want to live in a healthier, and happier world. Hopefully the future with be just that! Anyways guys have a great rest of the week, off to work I go 💖

Do I look taller? I saw my grandma this weekend and the first thing she says to me is "Sylvi you look taller." I am definitely not any taller but if my weight loss is giving that illusion, I'm not mad... 😜😜😜
