"hey girl heey!"💁🏾♀️
so last wednesday marked my 1 year anniversary of becoming a vegetarian! ayeee!!!!🎉
...sitting here today i reflect on my journey... and chile its been one hell of a year!!!!🤦🏾♀️ lol
even tho i still haven't hit my weight-loss goal....
even tho i havent had the time to workout like i'd like to...
even tho i still have a lil back roll & and a lil fupa🤣
i am still so p r o u d of myself!👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
i wanted to publicly take the time to congratulate my damnself! #okuurrt "self: you are doing an amazing f*****g job!!!!!" 💃🏾💁🏾♀️🎉 as women we often get so lost within our journey that we forget to celebrate our progress along the way! i'm learning that its ok to pat yourself on the back!
weight-loss journeys are just as much a mental transformation as they are physical. and chile i've learned sooo much about myself this past 12 months!
learning what works best for my body. learning how to eat correctly! learning to take time to rest. and i'm still learning how stop hiding myself. for so long i hid behind the sewing machine. i hid my body behind big sloppy oversized clothes. and i hid the best version of myself because i was standing in my own way!
well no more! i've made a conscious effort to put my best foot forward every single day! to wake up thankful. to not feel guilty about putting myself first. to work hard everyday! and on those days that i don't hit my goals i will remember to encourage
myself! "whatever i don't complete today i can still finish tomorrow" "self, i promise to be the absolute best version of myself, every 👏🏾single👏🏾 day! you deserve it!" #blackgirlmagic#weightlossjourney#lifejourney#settinggoals#bestversionofme#selflove#domvinae#dominiquevinae
Upper body workout this morning! just over 3 weeks out from my very first comp! taking each day as it comes, some days i feel great & other days i feel too tired and drained to do anything. as tiring as this journey may be, i love seeing the small changes and celebrating the small wins on the daily. feeling good today, just received my stage dress so i’m over the moon about that 🙌🏽💃🏽 can’t believe i’ve been on this journey since april & it’s nearly time to shine 👑✨ #wbffaus18#allysangels#3weeksout

First pic is monday night when i started the reboot, second pic is this morning - thursday morning - after prüvit keto reboot! .
third pic im tracking my goals with my fitness pal app💪
🔹lost 2.3 kgs or 5 lbs rebooting the body
🔹total loss on keto way since 10 june: - 9.6kgs or 21 lbs - .
what this keto way has done for me since being introduced to it by my good friend @amberlwalker in march 2017 - starting first on pruvit products and then amber created my individual keto way of eating - have been doing this since april 2017
🔹ulcerative colitis remission - 19 months✔️
🔹medication free 19 months - gastroenterologist said it was not possible - proved him wrong 💁🏻♀️✔️
🔹flare up free - 19 months ✔️
🔹inflammation down ✔️
🔹fatigue no more ✔️
🔹sleep better ✔️
🔹did i mention i proved my gastroenterologist wrong? 😁
and i’m sure there’s more i have forgotten to add! .
i have also been tracking my progress with the help of a dietitian - i have had 3 body scans and managed to bring my visceral f*t down from an ugly 114 to a lovely 94 (might be less now will know after next scan) there’s more progress in other areas in the scan too.
i have lived this way and had my results tested and clarified by a specialist and a holistic dietitian - can’t beat that! .
