I know that I talk a lot about the weight I have lost with beachbody. We all hear and see ALOT of focus on people's physical transformation and I just wanted to remind you today that its also about how we feel.
I went to my first conference last year with beachbody and I remember feeling so nervous about being surrounded by all those "fitness freaks" and "beach bodies". I honestly almost didn't go because i was not feeling like i belonged there. I wasn't to my goal. I hadn't reached my "ideal" weight. I still was on my journey and i felt embarrased Well, I can tell you my experience... I was surrounded by people of all shapes and sizes with huge hearts ❤ and a drive and passion to help others. It was so incredible to be surrounded by people that were just proud of their journey and happy to be there. There was no "ideal" person. The one thing we all had in common is we made it our job to help others live healthy lives!
I remember crying at one point because fear had almost got me to quit. To give up. And to be honest, i probably would have if I hadn't been working on my inside transformation this whole time. This company has taught me to be a strong confident person. I love this company and what they stand for - people, health, the inner journey....
As i am getting ready to go to Punta Cana in less than a month, I am not fighting those same fears and feelings anymore. Which is huge. Im not gonna lie, I am still working on becoming my best self...but not for comparing or anything like that. I just want to feel my best. <3 And that isn't a size or weight or anything. Its just me, rocking my swimsuit and enjoying the beach with my friends. It shows me how much I have grown over this last year. I have no desire to try and create some rockhard body because I'm going to a resort with all these amazing coaches.
What I want is to be my most confident self and keep the focus on being soooo grateful for this trip I've been given and that i get to enjoy it with some of my closest friends.
So, on that note, I am off to find the perfect suit....and Im not even dreading it!
