Sometimes you need to remind yourself that you were the one who carried you through the heartache. You are the one who sits with the cold body on the shower floor, and picks it up. You are the one who feeds it, who clothes it, who tucks it into bed, and you should be proud of that. Having the strength to take care of yourself when everyone around you is trying to bleed you dry, that is the strongest thing in the universe.
I absolutely needed to read that.
A three-legged rescue dog has been given a revolutionary new prosthetic paw after its fore leg was almost torn off in a trap. German shepherd Shadow was abandoned by his owners and was found with his foot mutilated, with bones sticking out of his leg. Vets at Seadown Vets in Hythe amputated Shadow’s left fore leg from the knee down and he was on the verge of being put down.

This was not a product of a “30 day challenge”. This didn’t happen by just doing squats. It took heavy lifting and patience. :)
Why a repost?
Well a lot of people assumed my other progress picture was fake because of the variation in skin tone, the lighting was different or I had altered the “after” image, or stolen it. So here is a image similar to the pose on the left. My back dimples are visible in both photos. I have some cellulite still, but I have reduced it greatly and improved the shape of my booty. :)
Don’t think it isn’t possible. Here is proof it can happen. Consistency and patience. Don’t give up :)
DAMN I CANT HANDLE UR BODY ITS SO PERF THIS GAVE ME SO MUHC MOTIVATION THANK U ILY
I promise to love you:
at 6 am when you’re waking
to go to work, to school, or whatever
road life takes you on;
and when you didn’t sleep well,
your hair is a mess
and your eyes are sleepy.
at 8 am when we say goodbye
for the day and you’re rushing
out the door with a cup
of black coffee, after finishing
a morning cigarette
when your lips taste like
caffeine and nicotine.
at 3 pm when you’re exhausted
from the day and people have
worn you out and you feel like
sighing, crying, and falling asleep
and escaping in afternoon dreams.
I will kiss your forehead,
and wrap myself in your arms.
at 10 pm when you’re heading to bed,
even though you won’t sleep for hours
and you’ll flip through all the channels
tired of dismal newscasts and re-runs.
Especially when we become a human knot
wrapped up in sheets and kisses
at 3 am when loneliness and sadness
do not destroy you, but consume you
and when you weep without an explanation
I’ll kiss your lips, softly and
tell you you’re the absolute best.
When we talk about life
and why winter kills the flowers.
I will love you when you grow old,
I will love you even after that
I will love you if I’m no longer here
I will love you
I will love you
and I will love you.
