hit counter Autumn's Appetite

Name's Autumn, I'm a Registered Veterinary Technician & I live in good ol' Indiana. I'm 23 years old & have always been "the fat girl". I am slowly but surely becoming the FIT girl instead. I started my journey in December of 2011. I ran my first 1/2 marathon in December of 2012. I obtained my Personal Trainer Certification in April of 2013, and as of June 2013 I am a Certified Nutrition Advisor. I am a certified Yoga instructor & teach Yoga in a studio. As of June 2014 I am a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer.

Height: 5'6" Highest Weight: Right around 250# Starting Weight: 244# Current Weight: 183# (6.19.14)

As I’ve said before, even when I was 250+ pounds, I’ve always been the girl with excessive amounts of confidence and an I-don’t-care-what-you-think attitude. I was going to use an old bikini to take “during” pictures in, but ended up going in a different direction with them. This is me today, I weighed in on the scales this morning at 179 pounds. I rocked all of those bikinis, plus the gobs of others still in my dresser, at 250-some odd pounds. And I didn’t give a fuuuu. AT ALL. As I was standing there looking at myself in the mirror trying these on, I thought, “Holy. COW. I had some BALLS. Super unhealthy balls, but huge balls nonetheless.” I hadn’t given a thought in the world as to what someone may have thought about me. As I’ve lost weight, gotten healthier, and changed my lifestyle that mindset has changed a little. I’m a bit more sensitive about my body and appearance since I do put so much work into my health (and also obviously my body’s appearance) that it sometimes offends me when i hear negativity. ANYWAY, the moral of this post:As long as you’re comfortable with your body, WEAR WHATEVER YOU WANT! Try to put less value into other’s opinions. Because at the end of the day, truly, the only one whose opinion matters of you is YOU. Love yourself, love your body, treat it well. <3
