Stars Who Showed Off Their Slimmed-Down Figures Just In Time For Swimsuit Season
While people might want to reach certain fitness goals for the sake of getting back to a size they used to be or to slim down to a size they never thought they could reach, one of the biggest accomplishments in the end for anyone on a weight loss journey is to proudly be able to wear a swimsuit. Not second-guessing their bodies, trying to hide or nitpicking at what’s showing, but really being comfortable and feeling great. With summer and swimsuit season literally around the corner, there is still time to work it out and get to where you want. For inspiration, check out the following stars who confidently showed off their new figures following a major weight loss just in time for swimsuit season.
I APOLOGIZE to myself! I bought a new swimsuit and tried it on last night, then proceeded to Drag Myself😩- pointing out every "flaw", every bump, lump, scar, ripple & stretch mark. Then u heard my sisters voice @kstew222 in my head say "watch what you say about MY sister"….then I remembered that my body will hear everything my mind thinks about it…. then I thought about my dear sister friend @daniebb3 and how she celebrates her chocolatey thickness ( she's so fine!)😘…then I changed my conversation with myself: These hips caught two husbands (and a few boos) 😏, my thighs touch but I gained weight having good food with great people👅. I see my c-section scar peeking out ( thank you @thekatvond for putting a tattoo over it) but it's a reminder that I brought 3 beautiful children into the world 👶🏽 I allowed my stretch marks to whisper " you are a grown ass women who has survived a few thangs & STRETCHED in ways you never thought you could" My mom always said "They don't teach "Kind" in school, you gotta learn that on your own". Loving your body can be a rollercoaster ride ESPECIALLY WITHOUT A FILTER! but…With all that said I purpose to be kinder to myself today then I was yesterday…. tomorrow i'ma try to keep the it going "I love you Niecy"❤❤❤❤❤
#FBF 2011 **PROGRESS** Talk about a flashback! 😱😱😱 I consider this my 'bikini pic heard around the world.' Lol It was just a couple months into my fitness journey. I had just finished my meds for walking pneumonia & I'd been consistently making progress on both my exercise & food choices. (Around this time, I was introduced to the #herbalife products. But I wasn't on a consistent plan. Lol but the shakes tasted so good!) I was taking control of my health and, needless to say, I was feeling pretty elated about everything! ••• I want to say this was around April/May. I was living at the residences at The W in Hollywood, the sun was shining and I wanted be outside! I'm an AZ girl to the core, so the sun and I have an amazing relationship. I'm solar powered. lol I threw on my two piece & headed to the bathroom for sunscreen. When I walked in, I was shocked when I looked in the mirror. I was actually SEEING the results of my healthier choices instead of just feeling them. I had to take a few pictures to make sure I wasn't imagining things. 😄 ••• I was feeling good after looking at them & thought, 'I've never posted something like this soooo I'm just going do it!' I did and it went EVERYWHERE. I had no idea that it would turn into another awesome way that I could encourage and inspire others. I hope I have! I look at this photo and I am so proud that I made the decision to take control of my health. The years since this photo have been a rollercoaster. If I didn't start taking care of myself then, I know things would be much harder now. My fitness journey is a constant work in progress and I'm happy to share it with you! Be encouraged, give yourself some TLC and look how far you've come! ♥️ #healthiswealth #fueledbyherbalife #getitrightgetittight #itsybitsyteenyweenyblueandwhiteandorangebikini
In my 43 years of living I've NEVER done this. I'm nervous but my new life is about conquering different fears than the ones I've already overcome. Im posting this with hopes that this encourages you all who struggle with weight in your journey to get healthy and reshape your minds, lives and bodies. My journey continues … #ThisIsMyLife #MyGodIsAmazing #Grateful #PeaceInParadise #IDontThinkYaReady4ThisKelly
