What are you investing in?

I recently saw an ad running on Facebook for 4 items - a hamburger, fries, chicken nuggets, and a soda - for only $4, and it got me thinking. As someone who drinks Shakeology every single day I often have people ask how Rob and I can afford 2 (TWO!) bags of these shakes a month.

Why am I sharing a side-by-side of two photos that look pretty similar? Because I have NEVER maintained my body like this for as long as this before!

But for close on 8 years, every time I have stepped on the scale or looked at "progress photos" I have felt defeated.
