Monday Motivation 😊 I can't believe how just by changing my breakfast and leading a healthier active lifestyle I've managed to lose 21Ibs and gained 7Ibswan muscle. I work out 2-3 times a weeks for an hour at the gym and I still enjoy going out at the weekends for dinner and a few drinks. I haven't shared this pic to try and impress or create attention but to only help you ladies realise this is something I would never had posted 16 months ago. I've never felt so body confident and happy in myself and now I have teamed up with @fernemccann @fernutrition to help you ladies feel body confident this summer. Follow my Instagram @dannisbodygoals and DM me for more info 💚 #dannisbodygoals #bodyconfidence #mondaymotivation #helpingothers #summerbodyready
