Starting a challenge which will push my will power and physical strength. Hopefully let me regain some confidence in my body and show me I can achieve amazing things.
Eating and body image have been a big problem for me since I was a child, I never found a balance and have always hated myself physically. I have also found I over eat a lot since I sobered up, it fills a void in me because having an addictive personality is hard to battle and can be super sneaky sometimes.
Due to inactivity this year from being very depressed about my new M.S medications and also starting to have my symptoms return because I had to wait to be treated, I fell into the classic trap of inactivity and comfort eating take away, it caused me to rapidly gain weight and lose muscle mass (medication that made me put on weight hasn't helped either)
I could have reeled this in earlier and I have no one to blame but myself falling of the exercise train and falling into food and bad habits as opposed to the good ones that were giving me so much confidence and energy this year. But luckily it was only a small 6 month stumble.
Doing this challenge means I will push myself, get back into the stride of healthy eating, exercising and self discipline. Time to shed the weight literally and mentally and become the person I was learning to love at the start of the year.
