Success depends upon previous preparation, and without such preparation there is sure to be failure. For me, it's always been about preparation, and the more prepared I can be each week, the less pressure I feel and the more confident I am. As your confidence grows, it's only natural that the pressure you feel diminishes. 💥5 more days to start my New PREP PLAN✅ MOTIVATE me or get the fuck out of my way 💪👊💥

A little monday motivation!
It's actually mind blowing that I have come this far. It's hard to remember myself as the person from the picture on the left. So much of her both weight wise, and mental health wise has left me, and for that I am forever grateful to myself!
To think that everyone used to say the old me was "confident" just proves I was an amazing actress . Those of you that knew me and stuck with me through some of my hard times(thank you) know that I was anything but confident. I was afraid to go out in fear of judgement. I was afraid that people were making fun of me every where I went. The sad truth is that probably wasnt the case, but I gave up making memories with friends and family because I was not sticking around to find out.
Since losing over 125 pounds, I have learned the true feeling of confidence. This past weekend I danced on a stage, downtown cambridge, in front of tons of strangers, and street traffic. And guess what? I have never felt so damn good! Because I'm proud of myself. Proud of the journey that had taken me to where I am today. Proud to have met all the amazing people I have in my life, that help me strengthen my body and my mind on a day to day basis. And proud that I can use my healthy body to teach amazing zumba classes and help change others lives one dance at a time 💚🖤💚

Here’s my #mondaymotivation and an early #transformation for you...
Last week I read @meghan_scoobyprep post about her mental and physical transformation and it inspired me and really motivated me to be vulnerable and share my own. Nearly 2 years ago in August of 2016 (right) I was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa when I was 19. My eating disorder was actually fueled by fitness, my true passion. My anxiety and depression became so overwhelming that the only way I knew how to deal with it was through extreme control over food and excessive exercise. I became so obsessed with pushing my body to its absolute limits that I lost sight of what life was really all about and why I loved to workout in the first place.I can’t tell u how many family gatherings, birthdays, holidays, and friend outings I missed due to my illness. It literally took everything away from me that I truly cared about.
Fast forward to today (left) post treatment and tons of therapy and group sessions later, I’m constantly fighting and pursuing recovery each and everyday. Yes, some days are harder than others, but on those harder days I really focus on what I want in life which is happiness. Happiness that my illness will never ever give me. Recovery has given me my life back and for that I am so grateful.
So yeah, that’s just a little peak inside my story because if I was to share it all we’d be here all day. There’s beauty and growth in vulnerability so if by sharing just a little from my past helps just one person that’s all that I care about.
I’m extremely proud of my transformation because it has made me the person I am today and has giving me a better perspective on life. By bringing more awareness to eating disorders people will know they are not alone, there is hope, and recovery is possible. If you or any one you know suffers from an eating disorder, don’t be afraid to reach out and seek help. Always remember you are someone and you are worth it. #NEDA hotline: (800-931-2237) ♥️✨ #gym#fit#fitspo#gymmotivation#fitfam#fitnessmotivation#recovery#powerbuilding#inspiration#getfit#weightlifting#powerlifting#bodybuilding#training#instafit#strongnotskinny#motivation#fitspiration
