You can change your life! You have the power to do that! It is a journey well worth taking. I did it with 3 little kids at home...I know you can do it too!
When you start your journey to a healthier you, I encourage you to do a few things first. First, you should take some before pictures. Take a few from the front, back, and side...the less clothing the better so we can see your progress, but I also understand being uncomfortable in your own skin. So, please do whatever makes you feel most comfortable allowing us to see the change. Along with the photos, you should take some measurements. You should measure your chest/bust, waist, thighs, calves, hips, and upper arm. To take body measurements use a cloth or plastic tape measure to measure the sites. The tape should be placed against the skin and pulled snug, but not too tight. Chest/bust: at the nipple line and right under the breast. Waist: one inch above the navel. Right thigh: just below the buttocks. Right calf: midpoint on the calf. Hips: at the maximum width. Upper arm: midway between the shoulder and the elbow. Make sure to to measure at the same point each time. Do the measurements and pictures once a month!
Together we will set out to be healthy and fit for years to come!
