How Much Can Your Body Shape Really Change With Exercise?

The next time you think you don’t need exercise in your life or if you are struggling with wanting to continue your exercise program because you aren’t losing any weight. Remember this picture. because, EXERCISE DOES MATTER! 

The picture on the left is from 2 years ago, before I got pregnant with Elyse and I was exercising about 2 days a week (because I had lost 20 pounds and got into that common "comfy phase" and it was the holidays and I would lose weight with the next program in the new year) That girl on the left, uncomfortable in her own skin. Dreaded working out because it was hard, so she just went through the motions and just did enough. But knew, it wouldn't be and was scared that she was going to fail yet again.

The picture on the right, is today. I am actually 10 pounds heavier now than 2 years ago. But I have had a baby, currently nursing and postpartum weight loss rebounding hit hard this summer plus recovering from surgery. But...For the past 65 days (and most of this year) I have been consistent with exercising 5+ days a week doing mostly 30 minute workouts using the unlimited online streaming service I LOVE that has access to over 600 workouts! Finally pushing myself instead of going through the motions. Sharing my journey honestly and finally loving me and my body as it is now, which feels pretty awesome!

If you are in your journey and you have tried it all, but the scale doesn't move, TAKE PICTURES to track your progress that way. The scale only shows one side of your journey. And you are so much more then that number. Be proud of how far you have come, of what you have accomplished and keep going. Be consistent and challenge yourself to workout 5 days a week. Because overtime you will see the changes. You will feel better.

Exercise helps your body be leaner, stronger and function better. And in these past two years I have finally gained the confidence in my body I have always wanted. Because I’m taking care of it. And my body is changing and feeling better. Exercise and healthy eating choices makes all the difference in the world. Don’t give up in your journey or goals when you hit a plateau or go backwards in your progress. Remember be consistent no matter what is going on. it could take longer than you want to get the results you want but just think about how you will feel when you can say, “I did it!”
