I am nowhere near where I would want to be regarding my body shape and appearance but I have definitely come a long way from where I was.
I recently posted this photo on Instagram,
The two photos have been taken just over 18 months a part. I hadn’t realised how much my appearance had changed as I hadn’t really looked back on any of my photos until the other day. I have started to feel confident about my appearance found the ‘style’ of clothes I am happiest in. I just feel like everything in my appearance just fits right now. This obviously has helped boost my confidence too.
I also invested in a smart watch it isn’t a particularly expensive one I picked it up in Menkind. I have found that being able to track the steps I am doing during the day so helpful to remind me to be more active during the day which I definitely important in a job where I spend the majority of the day sat down.
I have started to be more conscious of drinking more water and less fizzy drinks which has meant I have seen an improvement in my skin and hair. I didn’t think it was true when people used to say how good for you water was but it turns out they were telling the truth all along
I also signed up for the gym back in January and have discovered a love for exercising in that way, plus it is really helping my anxiety and depression. Now I am definitely no expert so I have done a lot of reading online about the best things to do and have sort of played around with different combinations of the equipment in the gym. I have found that just stepping my exercise up even the small amount that I have it has definitely made a difference.
I just feel good and positive about myself at the moment & I feel that we are all too quick to point out the things we don’t like about ourselves I thought I would make a post about the things I do like about myself and the progress I have made towards getting myself body confident again.
