Julia, Alyse & a BLT – Week 13 – Finale

Well friends, here is the long overdue finale post. The BLT officially ended last Tuesday and I am immensely proud of my progress and I accomplished all the goals I set out for myself at the beginning of the program. I am down 7 inches all over, I feel confident in my clothes, in a bikini and I sincerely love the reflection I see in the mirror. I am extremely thankful that I have had this opportunity to work with Julia and I honestly think it was one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself. I am thankful this opportunity came to me when it did and that I have acquired this knowledge while I am still in my 20’s so I don’t have to let a negative body image hinder me well in to my 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s. I feel more capable to succeed in all the goals I set for myself, and I don’t see myself falling back into my old ways. I honestly think it would be very hard to revert back to old habits, as knowledge is power and now I have the knowledge to maintain and advance my fitness goals. I feel better than I ever have in my body and I can’t imagine wanting to give up this feeling. Not once did I ever feel deprived on the program so I don’t have a feeling of “Finally I can eat again!” now that the program is over. I have been nourished better than I have ever been before. 

 

 

Now that the program is over I have set myself another goal to keep me motivated. Before the program I had a very large booty, and now though my booty is considerably perkier it is much smaller. I have always appreciated women with large booties and I would like to build mine back up, but this time in muscle. I am excited about the opportunities this program has provided me in my personal and spiritual life as well as for my career. My advice for any girls reading this thinking that they would love to join a fitness program but feel scared about making the decision is to just do it and don't make up excuses. You deserve to be happy, so make decisions that will help you feel this way. I was afraid before I started, I told myself I couldn't do this, I was afraid about not losing any weight, I was scared about letting myself and other people down, I was afraid of looking "stupid" but I overcame these fears and I maintained focus and got further than I ever imagined I could. I always use to look at before and after pictures online and was envious of those girls, but now I am one of them and I have never felt happier for myself. You Can Do It!
