Be-You-tifully Fit: Toss her a burger.


20140629-125401-46441528.jpgSome people don't understand how seriously hard the last 10 lbs are until you're stuck in them.  Like trying to climb through a mud pit and you can't pull hard enough on that rope to get your foot out onto the solid ground.  (Yes...this girl who doesn't like the mud just made a point using a mud run experience).  And yes I am super excited for where I am.  I worked my tush off...but I guess the best way to explain this is this.  It's the wall.  It's the final wall to break down before I can stand and shout to the world.

Anyway, I had the shocking eye opening weigh in this weekend.  It finally happened.  After being stuck in the low 150s since March, I broke through!  I started crying.  A little dramatic to some but I haven't seen 140s since high school and it was not a healthy 134-140 then.  The "now me" is a beast compared to the "me" of then.  As a matter of fact, I'd kick that heading down the road of anorexia butt of mine!  Literally!  And throw a burger in her mouth too.  When I start to think of all the things I've done to my's just depressing but I have changed that.

I have found who I want to be and I have become her.
