Physically, I have clearly gone through many changes.
The changes you can’t see, the mental and emotional changes, are the ones that are very important to me.
I started out as someone recovering from years of eating/mental disorders and drug addiction, a chain smoker and hard partier.
Last winter, I began to spiral back into my old obsessive ways yet I was easily masking my unhealthy ways as being “dedicated” to my health and fitness.
Today, I am healthy and much happier. I won’t lie, I still struggle from time to time. I will always be in a state of recovery but I know when I put in the work, I get a little stronger every passing day.
Before: May 2011
After: June 2012

Me, -70lbs :)
This is my 30 day results, just doing insanity, not monitoring diet at all. I didn’t think I was getting results, but when I looked at this pic I realized I really am, so for the second month of insanity I am eating healthy! Can’t wait for more results!!!
My ‘sad belly button’ seems to have gotten a lot less pouty… haha
