Non scale Victory! It zipped up!! One Carry on bag
I sat here thinking about how if I had stayed the same... If I had continued to stay over 200 pounds and continued to eat unhealthy and not learn to take care of myself, there would be NO way in hell all my size 22 clothes would have fit into this small bag.
It really is an AHA moment and as I look back, I’m damn freaking proud that I’ve maintained that weight loss for over 16 years now. .
It’s why I continue to show up to help women, cause y’all diets don’t work and we need to think LIFESTYLE change.
These days I’m all about the LESS is more mentality. Less emotional baggage. Less stuff. Less stress. MORE life. More happiness. More energy. More passion. More memories.
So what did I pack on this little wee carryon?? Let me tell you!
My MUST have travel item. My @conair steamer. I kind wish they’d make a tiny travel version but I’ve...
Have you ever gotten a picture back, looked at it, and said is THAT really me?
I get asked all the time:
How did you do it?
How do you stay motivated?
What made you want to change your life?
How can I do it too?
I also talk to women all the time.. who simply say, "I'm not ready yet".. or "I'll start in January".
I feel ya sister. I was her too.
What I can tell you is that there are no quick and easy fixes when it comes to changing your life. You're also never really going to be ready. But when you KNOW. You will KNOW. You're going to fail. You're going to hate it. You're going to want to quit. You're going to make excuses.
What I can also tell you is that sometimes in our lives we have to get to the point where enough is enough.
Where we are no longer looking to fix the outside and chasing skinny, but rather we want to fix what is BROKEN and unhealthy on the inside.
I wish I could give you simple answer, but the reality is, I just got this picture back, knew how I felt on this...
My ex husband used to call me the Dream Killer. Kind of ironic that my career today, is to mentor women on how to chase their dreams, and get healthy and fulfilled. Still cracks me up.
Lindsay... The DK. Dream Killer.
After my ex-husband passed away, I opened our wedding time capsule, cause surely we didn't make it 25 years. My heart sank. His prediction of where we would be in 25 years... Divorced.
I knew it too actually if I'm being honest.
His reasoning... NOTHING was ever good enough for me, and he was right. To this day, Jeff was one of my greatest teachers. He's a huge part of my WHY. An amazing guy, who taught me many life lessons.
Self Love. I often thought that I'd be happy if I lost another 10 pounds. A cat you say? I got two. I hate cats. Maybe more money will make me happy. Better job title? Got that too.
A new car? Check. Vacation? Charge it. It was a constant desperate attempt to get MORE MORE MORE.
One day I decided that I was exhausted. Tired. Miserable. Cynical,...
