Declaring *MY* Independence-UPDATE #1





 On the fourth of July I declared independence from my body.

I set a goal for myself really focus on getting back to eating clean, at least 90% of the time.
On the 4th of every month I am taking progress pictures to see my changes, because as you all know I do not believe in living by the number on a scale.


 I had a rough day a few weeks ago.  Thanks to all of your support, along with changing my routine up I am feeling better then before.

I did weigh myself before taking this months pictures just to see if there was any weight change, either way I wasn't going to let it affect me.


My stomach has slimmed down. It is nowhere near what I want it to look, but I wasn't expecting amazing results in just 30 days.

However, I am happy with my progress. My waist is much smaller and from the side I can tell a difference.
Running has definitely been a welcome change to both my body and my routine. I think that is part of why the inches seem to be just melting away.


The next 30 days I am going to kick it up a notch and continue to stay on course. I want to incorporate 2 lifting days into my routine, it's just a matter of finding the time.

For those of you who are wondering about my weigh in:

I was UP one pound.
 SCALES LIE
#PROOF is in the picture.
I encourage all of you to join me on declaring Independence from your body, maybe we could link our posts up on the 4th of every month.

Let me know what you think.
Either way.

Love yourself

  7. You are such an incredibly confident woman. Not many people would actually post pictures of themselves. With that being said, you look GREAT girl! I'm glad you aren't living off of what the scale says. You may be up a lb or two.. but that could & most likely is muscle gain :)

  10. you look awesome!! im not suprised you had a tiny little gain in terms of pounds, because it's noticeable that you've gained a lot of muscle. muscle weighs A LOT more than fat, so you're losing fat and inches and gaining awesome muscle which is amazing!! good for you, girlie!!! SPA love! <3

  11. Congrats on your progress, you look so great! Scales often stay the same when you're increasing muscle, I wouldn't worry too much about the number. focus more on how you're clothes fit and how you feel. Keep up the hard work!
