Man did cell phone cameras SUCK 9 years ago!
I had a dream last night that got me thinking.
The picture below is my kids and I on my 30th birthday. I had just lost ALL that "baby" weight (75lbs) using Turbo Jam. Shortly after this pic was taken I was struck with Lyme. A few months later a herniated disc, then another and another...I was so bad that they thought I had MS before diagnosing the discs. In the midst of all that I was still cleaning up from my 2 oldest getting sick everyday. Can you imagine being told for 5 years "it's just a virus, let it run its course". I was a crazy lunatic and my kids health always came before mine.
I am FINALLY in a position where I can focus on ME! My kids are healthy, thriving and able to help around the house. I have become a MASTER at making 4 different dinners AND have them finished at the same time so we can eat together.
I am not the same person in that picture. Remembering that day; I wanted a pic with my kids, but I didn't have the confidence to be standing holding them. I still thought I was fat (didn't help that my horrid step mother was telling me that!) I was in a size 6! I was TINY! But I still cared what others thought of me... Fast forward to the 2017 pic...I am NOT the same person I was 9 years ago. I might have a ton of weight to lose (stupid menopause!), but I am emotionally stronger, more confident, not giving a crap what others think anymore. My goal is to retake this photo on my 40th Birthday, October next year.
People ask me all the time "how do you keep going?" Simple: love and Shakeology. When you surround yourself with positive people you have a positive life. Shakeology gave me the nutrition I needed when I couldn't walk to put a meal together.
I have since found a coach that gets me! She created a lifestyle of eating that took away my inflammation, bloating, joint pain and I am able to workout every day! I am FINALLY losing weight and healing!I would like to pay it forward. I am starting my own accountability group of 5-7 women using the methods that I used to help me through all the physical pain I went through.
