Ab mirror turned baby bump mirror💙! So much love for my little man I've never met. About one year in between these two picture. Last year this time I was on prep for Miami nationals after I had prepped from march to August for two back to back August competitions. I was burnt out. I had an anxiety building up while prepping for Miami. An anxiety that was crippling, I don't think even my closest friends or family even knew at the time. I almost backed out 35 times, with an email typed up for my then coach that I was dropping out of that competition. I had anxiety in all areas of my life. I was truly miserable. I didn't even enjoy being lean with abs, because I didn't see it, each day I was fighting to be leaner and leaner for the competition that I didn't realize how I looked each day. After competing in November my life became a blur through April of this year. (Recent posts explained it, 24 posts back to be exact lol) I didn't want to live. I wanted to take my life in march if this year. I had stopped praying and a handle of titos vodka became my comfort. It was a nightmare. I never thought the pain of what I went through would end. But God who I had abandoned, found me and brought me back to Him. He blessed me in so many ways. Currently carrying one of the many blessings in my belly...

    Wow. This is so powerful. Do you think you'll compete somewhere down the road? I've considered competing for years, but don't know if I could handle it mentally

  • 49w ago blessedmotherhoodlife blessedmotherhoodlife

    @shushka84 I don't think so, part of me loves it but I sacrifice a lot to do it and im not sure im willing to miss out on life for it or become obsessive again, it was hard to break free of it

  • 49w ago shushka84 shushka84

    @brittanylee728 my dad and his twin both competed in the early-mid 90's and a part of me wants to give it a shot. BUT I also struggled with anorexia in college and a little beyond, so I'm worried it'll turn into a bad obsession. Plus, I have a 7yr old daughter and I worry what observing the process would do to her

  • 49w ago blessedmotherhoodlife blessedmotherhoodlife

    @shushka84 honestly knowing your past, be in a very good spot mentally if you'll start
