lovehealthlift I saw these at thought you might like them! From b&m :)

is this real LIFE

I am not even being a dick here but I get at least one question a day asking what app I use when I lift - the name of it is at the top of the app, on the picture I post

I use stronglifts guys, the program and the app names coincide.

You may not remember me, I messaged you a year ago about being my inspo and I went from 230lbs to 130lbs (now 135lbs with muscle) after weight loss I had a similar stomach to yours(a bit of loose skin. I was flat chested at 230 so I never had that issue) and even though it did bother me I didn't think it was enough to have surgery. I'm in NO WAY endorsed but i've tried many products and three weeks ago I got Nivea cellulite Gel Q10. Its made a difference and I'm so thrilled I had to tell you.

Thank you for this honestly and I am so happy it has helped you and your warrior skin

Lost three lbs of my retaining water and feel so much better (just another four to go haha). It is honestly insane how poor eating and water retention makes me feel (but carbs make me have a bottomless pit and it is absolutely ridiculous how much I eat and how I never feel full compared to keto, like honestly never.)
I gotta remember these pants are a size 10 for crying out loud, I am not my old weight of 200 lbs and I am fantastic.

Anyway off to work this morning and steak for dinner :-)

When I think about how many times I have picked myself out of the holes that I have either put myself in or found myself in - its cry worthy. My effort is cry worthy. I could have given up so easily. I could have gone back to the old me when I got sick and couldn’t carry on with my new life.

I can’t even explain how hard you have to just keep on doing. I made a promise to myself that I would always look after myself in all ways and I will never break that promise.

Be relentless, give it fucking everything and remember that you are already magnificent and you’re only improving that magnificence.

I kind of feel like if you're fat, and you go up and down in weight, it's going to be a constant struggle to maintain a healthy size for the rest of your life. Personally, I don't know one overweight person who has been capable of maintaining a healthy weight/lifestyle for more than a few years before going back to being fat again.

kirstyintheskywithbutter:

You sound like you’ve never had a weight problem & are just generalising all overweight people.

Congrats on that.

LOL
