chicken = natural


Okay. Just got our family pictures back from July. And it's kind of depressing. Not gonna lie. Now I don't think I look great by any means on the left, but I can see the difference.

I have lost 25 lbs. since then. I don't know how or when I ever gained that weight, but whoa!

It's crazy how different I feel. I remember feeling so overwhelmed at how much weight I had to lose. I thought I would never ever ever get there. But then I remember thinking, okay Molly, take one day at a time. Start today.

So I did. I work out 1.5-2 hours a day. Although it takes time, it is not a leisure activity, you have to make it a priority. I also have focused on eating natural foods. Meats included, because no one can make a chicken. That's my definition of natural. I do sometimes eat unnatural foods on the weekends, but overall I eat a lot healthier. I feel like I am feeding my body what Heavenly Father wants it to have. What it was intended to have. I am not only happier, but I feel like I have control. I think it makes me feel like I can be a better friend, wife, daughter, because I have the mental/physical energy to do so.

This is somewhat embarrassing to write about, but I can't take back the times when I have been uncomfortable in my skin, I just have to embrace them and learn how I want to treat my body. I used to want to work out to get 'skinnier' but now I have the desire to be 'healthier' and in doing so, will most likely be smaller. Gosh bodies are incredible. I best be taking care of it because I only get one!

you DO look great in the left picture! OWN it! But, just fyi: even if you didn't feel as good, you still look fabulous in the right pic, too. FABULOUS! This has been inspiring to me. I am at 10 plus pounds right now. ugh. I've got to make it a priority. You're absolutely right. THanks for sharing. Bodies are amazing. And I only get one. Thanks Molly. xoxo (see you tomorrow). :)
