  • Shoutout this #throwbackthursday to Dropbox for reminding me once a year to log into my account 😂 that’s where I still have a lot of my 2013 pics. These gems are from April 4th and April 5th 2013, respectively. On the left I probably felt real cute taking the picture until I actually saw it. On the right I weigh myself on a scale that technically doesn’t go up to my weight to try and guess how big I am. I’m kind of surprised to see it so low... I could have sworn I was a higher weight in April. It could have fluctuated... I mean the day after that scale pic was taken we went to Hayashi grill 😅 
I do want to roll my eyes at that... but in practice of self love, I won’t. I will remember I was young. I wanted to lose weight because of external pressure not because of an inward desire to change. I didn’t turn down eating out opportunities because that’s how I knew how to connect with others. I was still living to eat. Most of the pictures I took were of places we ate at. 
I took the steps I could at the time of my journey. 100% I remember meal prepping, that must have just been for work. And I stayed strong with that for a few months. And the money I saved went to another bad habit and eventually I stopped caring as much and I convinced myself I wanted to live on my own and pulled it off for a year. Then came back. Then left, pulled it off for two years. Then came back... here we are now. 
Success you see now came from years of failure and trying this on my own and failing. Putting myself out here like this is my solution. Maybe it’s not yours. But you’re allowed to fail and try to figure it out because that might be how you figure out what works, and what doesn’t. 
So a gentle reminder: you’re actually doing the best you can right now. If the thought of right now being your absolute best disturbs you, look inside your heart for some self compassion, as that act of kindness to yourself will have a ripple effect on all those you interact with in your life 💕 #selflovejourney #weightlossjourney #wljourney #lovethejourney #weightlosscommunity #wlcommunity #fitspiration #juststart #keepgoing #motivation #justdoit #selflove #selfacceptance #progressnotperfection Shoutout this #throwbackthursday to Dropbox for reminding me once a year to log into my account 😂 that’s where I still have a lot of my 2013 pics.
