“I like clothes now. I have more energy. I sleep better. My sex drive is up. Blood’s flowing. I’m less susceptible to impulse. I’m in a different mode. When I was way out of shape, the idea of using whitening strips on my teeth seemed terrible. I have to do that every day? I’ll never do it. What you want is instant results when you’re out of shape. You want your teeth whitened in 45 minutes with the use of lasers. But when you’re in shape, you know it’s the result of doing a little bit every day. Moments aren’t just moments. A moment might be a week or a month. So instead of Boy, I’d love to eat this hamburger right now, I’m considering a little further into the future. I’m thinking, I eat that hamburger and that’s 1,200 calories, and I’m gonna work out tomorrow and lose 800 calories. I may as well eat a salad here, still do that workout, and then I’m actually making progress.” — Chris Pratt

I took that first picture about a month and a half ago, when I was 202 pounds. I felt like I didn’t make much progress since I took it, so I took another photo this morning, weighing in at 185 pounds to compare and I couldn’t believe it.
Sometimes you can’t see a change. Don’t get discouraged, because if you’re putting in the work, there most likely is one.
Eat healthy, exercise and be happy.
