Honest Weight-Loss Transformation

This Honest Body Transformation Reminds Us to Celebrate Our Ups and Downs

I'm not 100% in love with what I see, but I don't 100% hate it either, so I'm just going to embrace my current state because no matter what, I've worked hard for it all. #transformationtuesday (swipe left to see progress from 2013-2017) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We all set course on a #fitnessjourney with this vision of what we will look like at the end of any program. In our minds were set on someone else's progress picture and we imagine ourselves looking like that person or close to it. You have to remove any expectations of what your results would've been because it might lead you to disappointment or wanting to give up. Everyone's chapter looks a little different, yours is unique to your own life. As much as I want more out of my progress I have to remind myself of what my days and life looks like. And that right now I AM giving my life the best I can. #teamselflove2017 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I went from ZERO exercise to 5 days a week, I went from emotional eating to mindful healthy nutrition, I went from not believing I can make changes to experiencing growth in all areas of my life in the past 3 years. ✨No matter what always remember transformation is a process, and as life happens there will be tons of ups and downs. ✨ It's a journey of discovery and reinventing yourself from one chapter to the next. #gofitjo ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Watch my #instastory for a special message to you!

When we set out on a weight-loss journey, we often have an idea in our mind of what the "after" picture will look like. But every body, person, and journey is different. Your end result won't necessarily look like how you imagined, and that's OK!

This transformation from fitness blogger Joanne Encarnacion proves that getting healthy is what's important and that your journey, just like your life, will be filled with ups and downs. In this series of photos, Joanne chronicles her health journey, which began in 2013, and highlights triumphs and setbacks. Today she writes, "I'm not 100 percent in love with what I see, but I don't 100 percent hate it either, so I'm just going to embrace my current state because no matter what, I've worked hard for it all." It's an important reminder to celebrate where you're at and embrace the process!
