We have both heard the label of "those" kids all too often both in our personal and professional lives and our goal to change that negative label into a positive one. It is easy as an adult to get frustrated with "those" kids and give up, believing that they are beyond help.. BUT in fact it is "those" kids that need us the most. And the ones we can learn the most from. Their anger, or behaviour is a cry for help and they are most likely battling something internally and they need an adult to show them they care and will be there for them regardless.
We have been blessed to be a part of these young peoples lives and to share our experiences with them while learning about theirs and supporting them on their journey to become the best version of themselves.
As we read the reflections our kids wrote about "how the #BeYOUthProject has impacted their lives" we were proud to see the growth in our youth and that despite sometimes not seeming as though they're listening, they truly are and understand that we are all a work in progress and that respect, positivity and kindness are part of that growth and journey.
So incredibly proud of these young humans and look forward to some amazing and exciting sessions in the future.
So I haven't posted a progress photo in a while and that's because.... I HAVENT BEEN DOING ANYTHING. I haven't been keeping an eye on my food or been going to the gym. But I'm keeping an eye on portion size and that seems to be keeping me steady. This is to show my progress from 245 lbs to 203 lbs. I'm only about 1/3 of the way to where I want to be. But even in the times where your mental stamina is low, you gotta rise and figure out what it will take to keep you level while not screwing your body over. I've found dark chocolate and runs up to my local park to be the best thing for me and my mental health lately and I'm happy with that. Yes I will be trying to get back to meal prep and gym, but for now, this is me, this is me maintaining. I'm proud af and I hope this kind of inspires someone? Or at least make them realize just because you need time to work on your mental side doesn't mean your body needs to suffer. P.s. same leggings 😍 #weightlosstransformation#weightlossjourney#mentalhealthmondays#mentalhealthawareness#mentalhealthrecovery#pcos#pcosweightloss#proudofmyself#takecareofyourself#healthyliving#healthylifestyle#healthyweightloss

Think about when you have a physical injury; often times the healing process is uncomfortable or even painful. Sometimes it may even look like it's not getting better....... And then one day the pain has subsided. There may be a scar, but you are healed. Healing in mental health is exactly like that. Emotional pain can be debilitating and not addressing it can cause it to fester and become worse. Even when you begin to address it, the pain of facing it can be overwhelming......... but one day, after a great deal of work, it will get better.
