My fitness journey.... Mama MacGyver* 1 child; Tulsa, Oklahoma 12211 posts

I can't believe the difference between these two pictures from last summer to this summer. My journey didn't really begin until this spring, when my husband and I decided to change our lives. But I didnt' think I was going to see much of a change in my body so I never really bothered to take a "before" picture. But when I started putting on my summer clothes, I realized that NONE of them fit. NONE of them. My size 8 shorts were FALLING off of me, when last summer they were too tight. So tight I was embarrassed to wear them and refused to buy a bigger size. I just bought a new pair of shorts that actually fit... and they are a size 2! A 2! I always assumed girls who were a 2 were tiny and too thin and must be just skin and bones and were clearly unhealthy. But I am MUCH, MUCH healthier now than I was a few months ago. I've lost 20-25 lbs, and I don't even know how many inches. I feel AMAZING!

We changed to a Paleo diet, and started going to a crossfit gym 3-5 times a week. It was tough at first but we saw results SO quickly that it was easy to stick with it... and now it's something we can't imagine ever changing about our lives

Thank you! Paleo and crossfit! Big lifestyle changes, but completely worth it.

How do you like crossfit? I live in an industrial area and there are probably 4 crossfit gyms within a mile of me. I've considered trying it out, but I've never liked working out in a gym. I'd rather bike, surf, etc.
