My midsection isn’t perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s finally starting to look good. I still have a long way to go, but for now? I’m so proud. Stretch marks and all.
How long has it taken me to get to this point? Well, how old is Maelie? 16 months? There you go. And so many years before that. Change doesn’t happen overnight. It involved countless hours spent at the gym, spin class after spin class, marathon training, half marathon running, MARATHON running, core classes, Body Pump, RPM certification, yoga.
It required dedication, honest to goodness hard work, and a strong mental capacity. Never in my life have I worked this hard for something. Day in and day out.
Why do I say all of this? Because I bought a bikini, guys. My first full fledged non-tankini, bikini since I was 21. Am I scared? Hell yah. Will I look awesome? It’s debatable. But will I look in the mirror and realize that I worked the hardest I possibly could for it? You best believe it.
So. There you have it. My midsection.
