As some of you may know I had started TurboFire before, and completely fell in love with it! I was around 200 pounds at the time and lost down to 180, what I maintained even when I stopped workout because of school and my knees and back being so sore. Well, I’m fed up with no working out. I’ve been planning on starting back for a while now, a couple of months and it just hasn’t happened. I printed out the month one calendar earlier this week, quite on accident (it was in the printer queue when I tried to print something for class, it printed and then what I needed to print for class didn’t!) and started it tonight thanks to my new meds. I was still awaked and pumped enough to do my workout, but wasn’t concentrating on school worth anything so I decided it was well past time to jump back in! Day one ladies and gentleman! If you don’t know what TurboFire is feel free to ask! I’m in LOVE! It is my “soulmate workout” as she says in the videos!
THIS IS NOT A BEFORE AND AFTER! Read on…
Before - 26 November 2012 at 5.20pm, 151lbs | After - 26 November 2012 at 5.21pm, 151lbs
I wanted to do this for a while now. Basically to show “don’t believe everything you read/see on the internet”, or anywhere for that matter. I am tired of seeing before/after pictures that don’t truly represent someones journey. I am not bashing anyone, any progress someone makes is something to be proud of but when I see these people who say “I lost 2lb heres my before and after pics from just a week ago!” and their bodies look COMPLETELY different its annoying. This gives other girls (and guys) false hope and then they get upset that they don’t have the same kind of progress when they look in the mirror.
So thats why I took these pictures. Posture and how you stand makes a HUGE difference. In the before picture I am slightly slouched over with my whole body relaxed, in the after pictures I am standing straight and sucking myself in.
Change will happen but it takes time, hard work and dedication, your body isn’t going to look completely different in a week or 10 days.
Before and after pictures are great to track your own progress and inspire others but if you’re going to post them to try and inspire other people, then post accurate ones. If you want to fool yourself go ahead by all means but to post progress pictures and claim your body changed that much in a few days is just damaging to other people.
Sorry if I sound like a b*tch I just needed to get this off my chest.
