#thursdaythoughts I used to look in the mirror and no matter how I looked I picked fault I was never going to look how I thought I should .. even at my very thinnest / lightest when I really wasn’t well mentally I thought I had to be thinner as that was all that mattered .. and then one day something changed and I decided I wanted to be strong instead!! 🙌 Now I embrace my body, the fact it carried my four children, I made it healthy again losing the weight I’d carried for years , overcame the mental battle with body image and the fact that to be strong I need muscle, only a year into my CrossFit journey and I’ve never been stronger or fitter nothing beats the feeling of getting a PB or knowing you’ve completed a WOD that looked impossible a year ago ! I train with people sometimes half my age and have nothing but encouragement from people who believe in me , who say hell yes to big calves , strong thighs and traps getting bigger and more defined 💪 find your people and you will grow into your true self ❤️ #happyhealthystrong #weightlossjourney #weightloss #slimmingworld #slimmingworlduk #slimmingworldjourney #strongnotskinny #bodybuilding #tenstonelighter #swuk #bodytransformation #swinsta #swmafia #extremeweightloss #nosurgery #noquickfix #fitfam #fitspo #fitspiration #fattofit #fitover40 #ificandoitsocanyou #changeyourlife #crossfit #crossfittraining
