Do you know how incredible it feels to accomplish something?
When only 70% people who begin a workout program actually complete it, I knew I had the odds stacked against me.
But did I already, though?
Weight gain post pregancy.
Family history of depression, hypothyroidism, and diabetes.
Seasonal affective disorder.
Sounds fun, hey?
Here's the thing, when I started my home workout programs I didn't actually want to exercise, I just wanted the results.
I wanted to lose weight.
I wanted the number on the scale.
That #goal weight, ya know?
That was the only thing on my mind.
I did this for three full round of my first home workout program.
Then my formula stopped consistently working.
I wasn't seeing the drop on the scale in the same pattern I'd become accustomed to. (Continue reading in comments)
You might be asking yourself, "Is Jasmine going insane?" Answer: YES. But also, I just hit a major #goal 😄 I am officially down to my wedding weight/size. It was a goal that I thought I would never reach. I was totally okay with not reaching it! And then...it just happened. I worked my butt off and I'm here. 😱October 1, 2011 I wore this dress and married the love of my life and now here I am like a crazy lady wearing it on a random Tuesday (don't worry I didn't leave the house in it) So cheers to setting goals and reaching goals! Thank you for everyone who cheers me on even if I am a little bonkers 😘 down 54 lbs since my heaviest! #fitmom#workoutmotivation#jasminenicosonlifestylevlog#transformationtuesday#4monthspostpartum
So, I'm still not super model thin. There are still parts of me that wobble, and I still don't have a gap between my thighs. In short, I am not perfect, and I never will be. But on the 09.05.2015, at over 20 stone, I made a change. I joined a Slimming World class. When I joined I was asked what my target was, where did I want to end up. Without any thought I plucked a figure out of the air, never thinking I would actually reach it. I had already lost a stone by myself, and wanted to lose a further 5 stone. Tonight, I reached that target, and I got that 6 stone I thought I would never get. My body is still not perfect, but that's never what this was about. It was about looking in the mirror and not hating what I saw, about not feeling like I had to hide in the hotel room when on holidays for fear of being judged in a swimsuit, about clothes shopping without crying in a changing room. My body is still a work in progress, but words can't describe what it feels like to look back at these photos and see how far I've come, and be at my target weight.
If you don't do anything else, just show up. When you don't want to do something, just show up. When you get there, you will be reminded why you are there. .
God orchestrates everything in our life. We often wonder why we are placed in situations, why God brings people into our lives, why certain things happen to us. It's all apart of His divine plan. We have to trust the process 🙌🏾 .
Grand retour sur insta!
Après une longue remise en question et un changement total d'objectifs dans ma vie: faire ce que j'aime, être heureuse, faire tout ce qui me rend heureuse!
J'ai donc démissionné de mon emploi de chef de projet dans le secteur public et je me lance à corps perdu dans mes passions: le bien-être et la beauté!
Coach en nutrition depuis plus de deux ans, me voilà également Beauty Artist (make up et hairstyle notamment) pour un super Beauty Boudoir dont je vous parlerai très bientôt.
J'ai décidé de partager avec vous mes passions: beauté, alimentation saine et sport. En route pour le bien-être !
Update: Two weeks ago I was toying with the idea of becoming a firefighter. Last week I was still uncertain but I applied for the exam. Today I went to a recruitment event and I'm fully invested! I want this!
Feels good to be back at the cutting and to see the weight dropping. Currently I'm at 174 lbs, which means I've lost a total of 20(!) pounds since I started! It has been years since I last was under the 80kg mark, so I'm quite exited! Done with week 7/12 now, so not to much left. Just got to keep grinding!
•If you follow somebody and then unfollow them based on not getting an immediate follow back, you have no respect for their work• --------------------------------
I'd rather have 50 solid followers who I interact with, than a million who don't have a clue what I'm doing.
I'm here to chase my purpose.
Not the fame.
