i have to be completely honest, i feel like my heart is at the bottom of my stomach and I’m on the verge of crying right now from reflecting. im not where i want to be yet, BUT CAN I TELL YOU that when i got sick and lost 20 lbs in 6 weeks 2 1/2 years ago, i hated shopping for clothes because nothing would fit me! I would literally cry in the fitting rooms and my confidence was basically non existent. when my doctors narrowed down what i can and cannot eat and said i could start working out again i hit the gym hard. all i wanted was to feel comfortable in my own skin, but back then struggled to learn how to love the new ME. i share this with you because i know what it feels like to not feel good mentally, physically, and emotionally, AND IM HERE TO SAY WE DO NOT HAVE TO STAY FEELING THAT WAY!
If i could share one of the biggest lessons i learned through it all, it was learning how to love myself where i was at. i‘ve been picking myself up, piece by piece, and day by day. I’m not gonna lie, it’s been DAMN HARD! BUT SO FREAKING WORTH IT. 6 months of unraveling what i used to be and think in order to fully embrace my life and the woman i have become. And to think my very first step of self care was literally putting MYSELF on a nutrition program and getting a bunch of people to hold me accountable. 😂 thank you to all those who had your own goals and did it with me! I wouldn’t have gotten this far without you guys. 😩
I swear, there’s no greater feeling than feeling confident, happy and healthy. And hey, if you have no idea where to start, its OKAY! it happens to ALL OF US. AND GUESS WHAT? we’re starting our 21 Day Challenge soon if you have some health goals and want to do it with us! I’ve got 10 more lbs to gain haha let’s go! ♥️
