You know what’s keeping you from reaching your goals? . CONSISTENCY, COMMITMENT and PERSEVERANCE. People often give up on their goals because they don’t see results as quickly as they thought they would. . For a long time, I thought I could never get stronger and grow muscle. I thought I would never feel confident in my body. While it may be true that it’s more difficult for me to grow muscle as fast as some other people and that it’s difficult to become confident, I was making excuses. Confidence is not something you are born with, but a skill you can LEARN and if you truly want to get stronger, you WILL. . Reality is, even though I was pushing myself in the gym and had a goal, I wasn’t eating enough in order for my muscles to grow properly and I still held onto my limiting beliefs. I was caught up in my old habits, doubted myself and to be honest, I was still afraid of eating too much and putting on some body fat as a result, even though I already knew then that you usually have to eat in a caloric surplus in order to gain muscle. . It wasn’t until I changed my MINDSET, stopped negative self-talk and overcame my self doubts, that I was finally able to MAKE CHANGES and MOVE FORWARD, closer to my goals. . The number on the scale should NEVER define who you are, it’s just a number! If you’re not seeing results, BE PATIENT. Don’t give up just because you’ve been at it for a few weeks and haven’t started seeing results. FITNESS IS A JOURNEY, not a destination and you can continue to get better and better everyday. . Stay consistent and ENJOY the journey. Looking back at how far you’ve come can be so rewarding if you just have a little patience! . What is a goal that you are currently woring towards? Let me know below to hold yourself accountable! ☺
Real talk!! Since it's Throwback Thursday I wanna go back to my first boudoir cosplay shoot! I felt so shitty about myself and how I looked. I didn't think I looked skinny enough in the edited photo! • Now I look back on these photos and just laugh. The edited photo looks so distorted and not real and I would never promote myself in that light. • I still struggle with body image and how to edit my photos, don't get me wrong. I recently posted a booty-full photo on patreon asking if I should edit my cellulite or not. Every comment lifted my spirits saying they preferred me natural and that it was beautiful. • This shoot was almost three years ago, so obviously a lot has changed, body and mind. But I think it's healthy to look back at these photos and be OK with how I look. I'll try to post more photos from this shoot that were never released because of how I felt about my body at the time. I realize now that I was pretty and I need to own that!! • Anyways, thanks for reading!! I encourage you to post before and afters of your body edits and share your opinions! We all grow at different levels and feel the way we do. That might mean editing yourself skinny to feel better, or editing your eyes a different color, or smoothing your skin. I respect everyone's choice, and I think sharing your truth is a huge step. ♡ Tag me in your posts so I can read your experience! • #cosplay#tbt#twitter#throwbackthursday#thirstythursday#cosplayer#harleyquinn#curvygirl#harleyquinncosplay#dccomics#photoshop#photoedit#beforeandafter#spreadlove#cosplaysidebyside#glowup#transformationtuesday#curvy#thicc#thickthighssavelives#thickerthanabowlofoatmeal#bodypositive#bodypositivity
