Often times we judge a person with a nearly perfect physique as having good genetics. Well, the ladies in this list proved that it’s not always about genetics. As long as you work hard for the body you want, then it will happen! Just like anything else, if you really want it bad enough you’ll get it.
It’s critical to stay motivate throughout the process. So many of us lose weight for the wrong reasons. The way we justify to ourselves is not inspiring enough. You need to be inspire by what you’re doing because losing weight is challenging. It’s going to depend on how much weight you’re going to lose.
For example, it’s not a very inspiring goal if you’re planning to lose only five pounds of weight. In fact, you might struggle to lose five pounds of weight more than you struggle to lose 20 or 30 pounds of weight. Most people won’t even notice that you loss five pounds and it would be very easy to gain those five pounds back.
So set your goals, have a vision of where you want to be, and how you would look in front of the mirror five months from now or a year from now. Make sure that you’re making a sustainable change and see yourself making a lifestyle change not just a quick little change. It’s very important to make exercise a part of your lifestyle because you don’t want to force yourself to workout.
A bad reasons to lose weight would be for example if you have a wedding coming up, for a high school reunion or some other type of event where you go to try to impress others. It’s never going to work because it might get you motivated in the short term but in the long run it does nothing for you. Nothing inside changes it still the same, you need to work on the psychology of why you’re overweight and why you keep falling off track.
If working out alone is something you don’t like to do then workout with a friend or working out with your partner can actually help give you that extra push and make exercising much more enjoyable.
I had this discussion with a friend todayShe made a comment about how my body is perfect and how I have perfect genetics…I reassured her that my body is far from it! I work HARD to maintain a tight physique year round So, I shared this photo with her, and I want to share it with you all…I want you to understand more of my personal physical and mental journey . . 3 years ago that girl on the left wasME!!! And it is very clear that I do not have good genetics In fact, the person I was dating at the time told me I would never have a six pack or be able to step on a stage again….at 5’3 I weighed 160lbs, I struggling with food issues, and a very unhealthy relationship. Flash forward to the right1 year later after 24 weeks of dieting for photoshoots and shows, I was completely physically drained but mentally, I was on fire . . The truth of it is we all hit low points in our livesbut it’s our own responsibility to bring out that fire from within! We all have our own stories and paths to walk downIf you are unhappy or find that you constantly compare yourself to others. STOP THAT!! And start being on your own teamthis is your journey, your life, and your race to run I’m here, I’m cheering for you, and I’m a living example that you can pick yourself up, you can keep going, and you must do it for YOU!!!
“The starting point of all achievements is desire.” -NH Some people used to think that I was crazy – going to the gym 2x daily for 6 days per week & going to grad school fulltime well, this here is proof that I wasn’t crazy, I was chasing my dream, desire, goal, and I sure did by taking home 2nd place in Figure Open Class B with an automatic National Qualification #1stNPCcompetition#2ndplace#nationalqualified#transformationtuesday#progress#desire#dedication#hardwork#results#Shredded#sexy#confident#motivation#FitnessMotivation#fitnessmodel#fitnessaddict#bodybuildinglifestyle#inspirational#empoweringwomen#motivatingothers#peace

Kay, here it is everyone! My transformation Tuesday pic! I have never ever done one of these before, but here it is for all to see. Purple suit was mid 2011 and blue suit was this past weekend. Not only have I made leaps and strides with my body physically, I am a completely different person inside between these two pics. I’ve learned to truly appreciate myself, love myself, know and listen to my body in all aspects, and be confident. I have goals in life and for myself, when I was a little lost in the other pic. But I doesn’t stop here, like I’ve said before, this is only the beginning of my journey and I can’t wait to continue to work hard and what I can concur! #transformationtuesday #tbt #loveyourself #beconfident #youvsyou #healthyliving #lifestyle #shinebright #concurgoals

Hello week 69!! It’s been a while since I posted a #progresspic ✅ Wherever you are in your health journey… You can do this I admit, I had curly fries last night…but I worked out this morning and felt great after. I also went to the store to buy a mountain of green juice ingredients to fight off salty cravings. Every small step counts and your hard work will pay off!!
