Motivation Monday❤️✨💋💫 “Life is filled with highs and lows —happiness and struggles that will test your resilience and integrity, push you to overcome challenges and leave you with lessons that will make you even stronger on your way up.
It’s the way you feel and think about yourself, including your expectations and beliefs about what is possible to you, greatly determines everything that happens to you.
This message is for my binge eaters:
I may not have all the answers, but I know what’s worked for me. And this tip has helped many others...so maybe it’s a starting place for you.
The idea of going on a diet felt sort of like getting sentenced to prison. Food was my comfort. And the thought of taking that comfort away was suffocating.
But I was so SICK of how I FELT. It wasn’t about looks at that point. My body felt horrible...like I had the flu all of the time. My mind was a wreck...depression and anxiety was taking a toll on my life that even medication was not alleviating.
But...I’d start a diet, and do so great all day, but come the evening I would sabotage myself. I would hold off as long as I could until I couldn’t do it anymore, and would eat myself sick.
The mindset shift:
1. Telling myself it’s not NEVER...it’s just not NOW.
2. Focusing on my WHY. Why am I wanting to lose weight? How do I want to feel? How will my life be different?
3. Asking myself the question: What do I want the MOST vs what do I want NOW (in the moment)?
Boundaries I set:
I promised myself I could eat ANYTHING I wanted, but I had to take these three steps:
1. Eat a full meal on my plan.
2. Drink an entire bottle of water.
3. Read my ‘why’ out loud.
If, after these steps, I STILL wanted to binge...I was free to do so.
This process helped me for a few reasons...
*I didn’t limit myself. I just said “later” instead of now, which often, would completely prevent a binge episode.
*Even if I DID binge...I was already so full on healthy food and water, that the damage to my progress was MUCH less severe.
Slowly, but surely, the episodes I had were growing further apart. I eventually got to a point where I became obsessed with eating to FEEL good, as opposed to eat to LOOK good.
The scale isn’t always consistent. And when my focus was only on looks...and the scale went up...I felt defeated.
But when I changed my focus to how I felt, mentally AND physically, I had a consistent measure of progress.
Gosh, this was long...but I hope it helps someone. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

People are going to doubt you, discourage you and tell you that you can’t. That’s when you stay quiet, work harder and show them that you can 😎✨

Oh the power of undie position and hip placement ... 🤣🙌🏽 same phots but 5 seconds apart. I have a naturally wider waist which is why I like to keep lean as curvy hips and a tiny waist ( hourglass ) isn’t my shape. I love training because you can kinda create a new shape with muscles and illusions.. BUT for those wanting a quicker solution here’s some of my posing tips 🎥🤭❤️

I’m a bit obsessed with these stand & stuff tortilla boats from @oldelpasouk
as the filling opportunities are endless!
They’re only [75kcal/3½ syns each] so are perfect to have 2 and stuff them to the max! Tonight I’ve gone for 🐠🌽Tuna, sweetcorn & red onion, what a combo eh, then into the oven for that cheese[🅰️] on top to bubble!
Served with some salad & salsa and I need BBQ involved here too, so that’s where the @skinnyfoodco Smokey BBQ comes in, that’s #synfree 🍗🔥
These really were amazing! 🌶I really want to try chilli in them next and I’m open to suggestions on what I can fill me boats with🤷🏼♀️Ideas please💡
Because I want to give my body that extra power to fight off the struggles I've always fought against.
I have an autoimmune disorder.
I struggle against inflammation.
I fight against food.
I have hope.
I AM beating this.
Did you know : 😳 Celery juice starves the unproductive bacteria and viruses that are behind inflammation. (I can attack inflammation internally) 🤜🏼Celery juice helps to clean up and detoxify the liver and a sluggish, toxic liver is behind mystery weight gain. (I have a friend aiding my continued weight loss) 💪🏻Celery juice restores hydrochloric acid levels in the stomach for better long-term digestion. (My body doesn't have to fight so hard because I have a buddy aiding my digestion at the beginning of each day)
Happy Monday yall! I honestly dint expect to lose much this week, but I'm nearly 2 pounds down! Currently 237.6 pounds and feeling cute. Also peep the measuring yarn on my mirror lol. I didnt have a tape measure but wanted some documentation of my measurements.
I can unfortunately say that no adventure awaited today, only work work work 😅
I’m revising for my finals for my masters degree and learning a lot about the issues with nutritional epidemiology which is super helpful in a world of crazy health claims!
Understanding odds ratios (relative/absolute risk), the placebo effect, the extent of human error, the limits of dietary assessment methods and how statistics can be totally skewed in nutritional research gives a really useful insight into how popular media can manipulate research to best suit their agenda and sell products!
Lentil Soup; recipe from @recipe_tin is perfect for winter days man. We're supposed to hit a high of 25 degrees today and I'm NOT going back outside until we get something a little more reasonable. Meanwhile, this soup is easy, cheap, uses stuff you probably already have in your pantry and darn it, it's hot!
