  1. If your day is filled mainly with healthy foods like fruits and vegetables, lean meat, poultry and fish, low fat dairy and wholegrains and you decide to have one little treat, you will lose weight. It's the FOOD CHOICES you make that are crucial to your success. If however, you eat a lot of fried and processed foods (packaged food), then you may not conquer your weight issues. IT'S NOT ABOUT EATING LESS, IT'S ABOUT EATING BETTER. Don't create a diet mentality of deprivation or you'll set yourself up for disappointment. Allow yourself "sometimes" foods, sometimes. 🤼🏋🚴 You may be exercising your butt off at the gym but not losing weight. Do you know why? It's more than likely your food choices, or that you are skipping meals, or your portions are too small or too big. Its a balancing act. That's why I could never lose weight on my own. I needed WW to give me the tools required in order to succeed - best thing I ever did for myself. #healthyfood #freshfood #health #nutrition #junkfood #takeaway #takeout #foodchoices #conquer #portioncontrol #balance #fruit #vegetables #leanmeat # poultry #fish #wholegrains #dairy #water

  1. ✨We often know so much more than we give ourselves credit for. Sometimes we just need to get our mind and body quiet enough to hear our truth.

  1. [journaling and reading from this office today 💚] Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness, no laziness, no procrastination: never put off till tomorrow what you can do today. -- Philip, Lord Chesterfield

  1. ♊️Did you know that today, Thursday May 25th there is a new moon in Gemini? Here are some great lessons for us to consider: The new moon can bring up unresolved communications and hurt feelings. We are now being challenged with honesty about communicating our needs (even if it scares us!). Let's use our voices to be truthful and also encourage, inspire and support each other. Keep your childlike curiosity and be open to hearing both sides of the story. Go out and connect with those who bring you joy! The world can feel so heavy and the Gemini moon reminds us to communicate but to also be lighter and to play more.

  1. Learning to trust the journey💫💫💫 Please read ⬇️ ***The physical transformation in this picture is only an image and a result of the mental, and emotional growth and stability I have found in this journey so far. After having to stop performing and take a medical leave from my job for multiple injuries to my shoulder and neck, I fell into a very dark place. I was in such physical pain everyday and struggled to find the right treatment plan for recovery. This brought me to a low emotional state as well. I was sad, frustrated, angry, depressed, and confused why this had to happen to me. People kept telling me to be patient, and that this will take time, but I felt as though I was in a tunnel with no light at the end. There were good days, and bad days, but as down as I felt in some moments, I have never gave up. I had to stop beating myself up for all the things I wasn’t, and start loving myself for all the things I was. I realized I could either get bitter, or get better. I had to take what I was dealt with and allow it to make me a better person. The choice didn’t belong to fate, but it belonged to me. So I took control of my life; my mind, my health, my happiness, my everyday choices. I started to find the power of the mind and learned to be kinder to myself through this recovery time. I took control of my anxiety and realized that this struggle I’m in today is developing the strength I need for tomorrow, and every day to follow. I am a fighter, I am a warrior, and I am strong. I could not let this break me down anymore. I knew I was better than how I was treating myself. These picture transformations are very emotional and special to me. I look at them and see two completely different people. I can feel how unhappy and unhealthy I was in the first picture, compared to the hopeful healthier and happier girl today. As I continue to heal my shoulder injury, I continue to heal and strengthen my mind, body, and soul.... (continued in comment below)
