Looking back at my old self like 😬.... I can't tell you how to do it I can just simply say DO IT. No one is going to hold your hand through this, no one is going to make sure you're up every morning for the gym or monitor your food.. that's 100% your responsibility. Make yourself proud. Be your own motivation. Don't depend on anyone for your happiness. Take care of your life and your life will take care of you, I promise.

Back in January 2016, Franny weighed 331 pounds, but fast forward a year and a half, now at 205 pounds, the one thing that has kept her motivated on her weight-loss journey is — get ready for it — HERSELF. She doesn't have any magical advice to share, or one specific thing that worked. She believes (and we agree) that you have to make yourself, your life, the number-one priority which means, "No one is going to hold your hand through this, no one is going to make sure you're up every morning for the gym or monitor your food . . . that's 100% your responsibility."
Franny admits that some days are really hard, and she wants to throw the towel in, but she says, "I just keep moving forward. That's the only direction I'm allowing myself to move." And as for those superearly morning workouts, Franny has a trick — try this because it might work for you, too. "There are days I don't want to get up at 4 a.m. to work out I put my screen saver as a really old picture of myself so the first thing I see in the morning is someone I NEVER want to be again, guess how fast I get out of bed?" Isn't that a great idea? That's pure motivation right in your face and makes it near impossible to hit snooze!
Be a better you, for you ❤️ Little piece of advice for those of you just staring your weight loss journey, document everything. Document anything you "can't" do so the day you can do it you have something to look back on and be proud of. Record yourself, take progress pictures, do anything and everything that will motivate you in the future if you ever need a pick me up. Record yourself at the gym even if everyone gives you that look, remember why you're there and who you are there for. There are days I don't want to get up at 4 am to workout I put my screen saver as a really old picture of myself so the first thing I see in the morning is someone I NEVER want to be again, guess how fast I get out of bed? 🏃🏻♀️🏃🏻♀️🏃🏻♀️🏃🏻♀️ Hope everyone has a good weekend. • • • • #Weightloss #motivation #facetofacefriday #facetime #beforeandafter #crossfit #chickswholift #lifting #transformation #crossfit #Friday #summer #motivation
I don't do it for the gram I do for Comppp..... JUSSSSS KIDDING OF COURSE I DO IT FOR THE GRAM. So glad the week is over guys I didn't know if I was going to make it through, 60+ hours of work late nights, early mornings and still made all my workouts.. it's all worth it. It's hard, somedays I want to throw in the towel but I just keep moving forward. That's the only direction I'm allowing myself to move now days. Not only through my weight loss journey but through all other aspects of my life. My life truly is JUST starting at 28... but, you know what they say, better late than never. I hope you all do what you need to do to get to where you want to be, whatever that means to you. We all have different goals, different starting points and different endings but we're all so much alike at the same time, thanks for all the motivation you guys give me everyday it fuels my fire like you wouldn't believe. 🤗😘 Start weight: 331 lbs (1/1/16) Current weight: 206 lbs (this morning) 😎 • • • #weightloss #weightlossjourney #facetime #facetofacefriday #Gym #Fitness #Fitfam #Goals #wednesday #Friday #kendricklamar #GymRat #beastmode #weightlifting #crossfit #crossfitgirls #Work #motivation #beforeandafter #curvygirl #curves
