A little over 3 years ago I started down a path that scared me. Mostly because I had failed so many times on that path before. The goal was to lose weight before I got married....I was sick of hating how I felt in clothes, hiding underneath layers upon layers, never going anywhere without a cami tank top on underneath my outfit, spending hundreds of dollars on expensive clothes and name brands to try and hide my self-confidence issues, and changing outfits countless times before ever considering leaving my house for work.
I wish I could say that I didn't struggle with all of those thoughts on a DAILY basis years ago, but like most women out there I did. I let my appearance really dictate how I felt. Those expensive name brand clothes helped me feel more confident for a time being... but it never lasted. Can you relate?
About 6 months before we got married I finally decided to reach out to a complete stranger online. She seemed nice and she seemed like everything she touched turned to gold. I asked to join her fitness challenge. I bought my start up package, got into the group and started doing the work. What I realized was that SHE wasn't special (sorry Mel hahaha)....but the GROUP was special. Suddenly I was surrounded online by women who cared about getting healthier. Something that I hadn't been surrounded by before. It took me those first 6 months to lose 15 lbs, but after that I learned what worked for me and I was unstoppable. I went on to lose a total of over 40 lbs throughout my first year of working out at home, eating healthier and drinking my superfoods.
Now, as I gear up to start this next group I can't help but feel like I'm at the beginning of a journey again. Getting back into shape after having a baby is NOT going to be easy. But like Joe keeps telling me...losing weight the first time wasn't easy either! I'm excited and a bit nervous to start back up with the fitness but luckily I have a new workout to do that is only 4 days per week.
I'm looking to fill the last 2 spots in this fall group. So if you can relate to this post and want to stop struggling with your own self-confidence and body image issues, comment or DM me!
