Left --> I was restricting calories and working out like crazy. I hated my body and constantly worried about what I looked like. I had severe back acne, mood swings, anger, was constipated my whole life and had a bunch of other issues. I ate lots of whey protein shakes, fat burner pills, chicken, low calorie junk foods and all other NON- Foods.. I liked veggies but didn't focus on them and avoided fruit because I thought it would make me fat...
Right --> Me this morning before taking my dog to the beach. I eat at least 2000+ calories a day of fruit and some greens. I don't eat nuts but occasionally will have hemp or tahini. I don't obsess about exercise I just move my body because it feels good too. And I LOVE MYSELF! It has been a journey that took patience, consistency, passion and relearning how to love myself for me. I have been coaching women for the last 2 years how to empower themselves with knowledge that reconnects them with their inner guide and intuition.
Aww you look AMAZING! the inner health and beauty is just bursting out of you! What a lovely transition.. congrats for making the change :)
Thanks! It has been a journey, but it feels so good to feel like I have control of my choices and health :)
You're Gorgeous! Congratulations, and continue to radiate your inner beauty. :)
Thanks girls :)
You were always a beautiful girl, but in your "afters" you're not only even MORE beautiful... You also look like a really kind, balanced, cool person.
Not to imply that weren't all those things before... It's just that now you look way happier :)
Awesome transformation, Congratulations!
Thank you Sultana. I am definitely way more balanced and calm now a days!
Thank you :)
Congratulations on your commitment, and WOW, what a difference! You say you don't obsess about working out as much? You can see the natural muscle definition on your leg for your recent picture compared to when you said you were working out a ton but not eating a raw diet!
Thank you for posting a before and after picture! This is truly inspiring and motivating! :)
I know! It is pretty neat how important the fuel we put into our body is... In the old pic I was living off chicken, toast, low calorie pre-made food, whey protein, chips and alcohol. In the new pic I eat only fresh, ripe, raw, organic fruits and veg. What a difference in not only how I look but most importantly how I feel. What has your journey been like @Shae?
Thank you Teri!
