Transformation Tuesday 

I really HATE looking at these pictures of myself. It’s freakin painful. The memories of how I used to feel back then are just as real now as they were then. I might be smiling in some but I was a great actress when I needed to be. Depressed, unhappy, flabby, tired/exhausted, closed off from the world as much as possible, angry, bitter, a failure at being a mom, a failure at being a wife. Numbing the pain with alcohol and food as much as possible. Well that only works for so long until you sober up. Plus alcohol just makes everything 10x more intense and dramatic. That was FUN. 

I’ve lost a bunch of weight (I’m guessing about 50 pounds, still don’t weigh myself) and dropped 4-5 sizes. Confidence is at the highest. Skin is clear. Energy through the roof. Happier in general. No more naps needed. 

I literally could not stand myself anymore. I was on the verge of a mental breakdown. I thought I was too busy to take care of myself. It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you have had enough.

Take care of yourselves, friendly people. Here’s your transformation for Tuesday.
