"I just can't seem to lose weight"
"What do you do?"
"What's your diet like?"
"How did you do that so easy?"
These are questions I get all the time.
Growing up I had to deal with back to back major surgeries that would put me off of my feet for months to years on end and there was no regular exercise by any means.
I was in a wheelchair for sometime in my teen years and I didn't watch what I ate at all.
No one understands or can ever put themselves in my shoes when it comes to the struggles I had growing up with severe flat feet.
I was bullied beyond belief about my weight and heard every joke in the book. I hated myself and how I looked even though I was just born that way.
I found crossfit thanks to a great friend and am so grateful that I did.
I've learned perseverance, hard work and dedication due to this sport.
I've learned that there will always be weaknesses and that that's okay, because that just pushes you more to fix those flaws.
I've always had people doubt me my entire life saying that I can't do specific things because of how I looked or because of my feet. I won't take that anymore.
My goal, wether it be by next year or the following years to come is to make it to the crossfit regionals or even the games, and I know if I put in the work and keep pushing myself everyday I can make it.
I want to be able to prove to myself that I can make it, and that nothing is impossible.
I want to be able to prove every single person that ever told me I can't growing up that they were wrong.
And to those that have been there for me these last few years and especially the last 2 months to constantly push me, thank you.
I will make it, I just have to keep pushing.
I never forget where I came from, and the reasons why I'm where I'm at today.
