This Is My Story And It's Not Over Yet.... For the last few days, I have been struggling with whether or not I wanted to post this, but I feel it is much needed for the ladies who think being super skinny is beautiful. I was one of those girls; the skinnier the better, right?! WRONG!!! Even though I was eating clean, taking my suppliments, and excercising I was battling a lot of anxiety with a tad bit of depression. I didn't realize at the time what it was actually doing to my body and as you can see for yourself, I dropped a significant amount of weight. I was at my lightest of 115lbs in the picture to the left. What also didn't help is having someone you love tell you that you are more attractive that way; SKINNY.. Man, was I stupid!! After the 1st of the year, I decided I needed to make major changes in my life! I knew that if I wanted to reach my goals, I had to let go the struggles that were holding me back. I had to force myself to get up out of bed and make a change within me. I started going to two different gyms, I started to eat more healthier along with adding more protien to my diet, I changed my mindset to think positive thoughts instead of negative ones, I focused on me for the first time in years!! I had four kiddos watching me and I knew I couldn't be another disappointment in their life.
So, fast forward to eight months later? I have gained 17lbs of lean muscle, I am a much happier person, anxiety and depression is gone, my life is more simplified and more organized, my kiddos enjoy being around me, I am a better mom today. All because I needed to change my way of thinking, I needed to make a choice that would better me and my family!
Thanks to the Performance Elite Line in Advocare, I have been able to push myself harder and longer, I've been able to add on healthy muscle, and for the first time ever, I can see the changes my body is making.
Don't ever let anyone devalue you or your self worth, don't ever think that being thin is where you need to be. The most important thing you can do for yourself is be healthy and happy!
