"If you're intending on changing your body to ultimately be happy with what you see, you will never be happy."

The new year often comes a fresh set of resolutions: working out more, eating better, losing weight. (P.S. We have the ultimate 40-day plan to crush ANY goal.) But no matter how much weight you want to lose or muscle you want to gain, it's still important to treat your body with respect and love.

Blogger Riley Hempson has been transforming her life through fitness over the past two years. She's lost 55 pounds in the process, but that's just a small part of the picture. Reflecting on her own goals this past year, she wrote: "What started as a mission to lose a heap of weight, turned into a journey of health, love, and happiness."

Riley realized that the transformation she really needed was on the inside. "If you're intending on changing your body to ultimately be happy with what you see, you will never be happy," she continued. "LOVE yourself enough to treat your body and mind with the nutrition it needs. Fuel your journey with love, not hate. Everything else will fall perfectly into place."

She ended her post reminding everyone that we're so much more than our bodies. "You're more than your health," she said. "You are the way you treat others, you are the way you smile, the way you make others smile, the way you cry, the way you laugh and the way you get down and dirty on the D floor. You are SO MANY THINGS, remember that."

I tried every diet in the book in an effort to lose weight. My life consisted of lots of cardio and eating like a bird. Soon, I was totally burned out. I felt like a failure. When I finally put the puzzle together, within a short amount of time I was losing stubborn fat while building lean muscle. A new, improved version of me was emerging. Now in my mid-thirties, I’m in the best shape of my life. My story is here ==> https://bit.ly/mydietstory

I'm liking my new lifestyle. I don't want to go back to how I used to live. Usually by this time into a new program I lose my motivation. But this time is different. The motivation is actually increasing. I'm feeling like my goal is truly attainable! I really can do this! In 20 days, I'm down 14.6 lbs! following this weight loss program: https://bit.ly/2rHqH0d

Since I turned 40 it has been increasing harder to lose weight. I have tried every diet, watch what I ate etc., nothing worked. One day my husband came home and told me about this system, I thought why not. Three months later I lost 34 pounds and 3 sizes. Now that I’m on the maintenance part of the system I lost a total of 38 pounds and now down 4 sizes…. This system works. It really had me change my eating habits. I have learned valuable nutritional information to ensure I keep the weight off and look great. Three months later I lost 34 pounds and 3 sizes, just following this system:http://leanbellybreakthrough1.club
