Off to my first yoga session in 35 years! Wish me luck! See my stories for an update!

We all start somewhere. Don’t for a second allow your mind to go to that idiotic place that tells you “I’m the only one. I’m alone. Nobody gets it.” Mostly because in all honesty, you have no idea what anyone you see on the street has been though. Even in that day alone. As soon as I realized that A) I wasn’t the only one who was struggling with their weight . And B) I actually had the ability to get back to a healthy person. Everything changed. EVERYTHING. This is why I’m hard on people. This is why I say, things like, if you’re unhappy with your weight, unhappy with how your clothes fit, unhappy with how you feel, - do something different. Work harder, eat better, make healthier choices. Do what makes you feel that you’re progressing and put on those self love blinders while you do. Grind with your eyes on YOUR PRIZE. Not the girl you follow on instagrams. And while you do this, be kind to other people and smile. Your world will truly shift in a way you’d never be able to fathom. This is a promise I can make you. I have goals I haven’t reached yet. They feel forever away. I know I have to put in the work. So I show up and do it EVERY DAY. #motivation #inspiration #bethechangeyouwanttosee #takebackcontrol #progressnotperfection #consistency #youareinchargeofyou #choosefit #weightloss #beyourownmotivation #beyourowninspiration #lifestylechange #getactive #eatclean #healthylifestyle #beyourownsuccessstory #youcandoit #eyeontheprize #setgoals #trusttheprocess #beentheredonethat

21st Century Heart Problems 💔💔💔

Ever felt so impossibly lost you can’t imagine being back on track? Felt you’d never see the future that seemed so unavoidable?⁣

You had it all figured out. Then, life — as sometimes does — came and stomp on the idyllic painting of your glorious tomorrow. A canvas you’ve been laboring on since you can remember but now nothing more than a scribble violently penciled in by a twisted madman.⁣
Day after day, you wander through whatever you can reconstruct from your past, hoping somehow everything would snap back together. For a fleeting moment, you feel like you’re back on the horse just to realize you’ve hopelessly lost yourself. Until the next fleeting moment of unsatisfying hope. A hamster wheel you’ve voluntarily chosen to repeatedly hope on.⁣
The worst part: you know nothing happened TO you. You were fully complicit with your own undoing. You didn’t like who were and you don’t like who you are now.⁣
The bright side: your participation is also dully required in your salvation. Admit and accept your responsibility and take back control.⁣
Pick up the pieces. Glue yourself together like a child labors over a castle of Lego’s: slowly and with care but also with joy and excitement and a deep sense of opportunity.⁣
You get to decide what your identity is to be. What would be the person that looks back in the mirror when now all the duck tape and shoe string you used to MacGyver yourself through the years of struggle, through the ups and downs, is gone. It’s a new beginning.⁣
You choose who to be. And whoever you choose to be would determine your future.⁣

Among the insecurity, doubt, pain, you’d find light and hope and even yourself. Just keep on moving. You got this.⁣

Hi ! Welcome to my new IG account. This is all about keeping positive, healthy and finding our inner confidence. 😊🙌🏼💪🏽
As some of you will know this last year has been life changing and a challenge for me following a major breakdown and burn out in November 2017. 😒
This followed a year of hard work and great success in my art business 🎨 (#amandarackoweart ) . But it was coupled with PTSD from being present at the Nice terrorist attack; a mother with Parkinson’s; a messy divorce; finding the right care and being part of the recovery process for my high functioning autistic son after he went into meltdown at university; assisting my hearing impaired daughter with some tough decisions and still being around and able to give support for my two other wonderful grown up children newly finding their direction in the adult world. 👭👬
In all this, I forgot about ME! But how can we support ourselves and our loved ones if we have forgotten to look after ourselves?🤔
Follow me to find out how I am dealing with recovery, what new steps I am taking to change my life and how I find support on IG can be so helpful to my recovery, finding my inner confidence and putting my life back on track. ☺️😘

Nonscale victories are what keep me GOING!!!! This shirt used to be tightish... it had that not too small but too constricting around my waist thing going on. Now it's gloriously floaty. 👐👊👐 YES. YES. YES. .

Keep going. Or get started. Every moment is a chance to take back your control. You all know I love helping ladies do just that! Why not you?

SPOILER ALERT!! ... no one is going to show up on your doorstep and give you the life you always wanted. The one you dreamed of. The one you long for. 😩

Think back to when you were a kid... when you couldn’t wait to grow up! ☺️Now think about what your life is like now. 😬
If you could go back in time, and take a picture of your life now, would you still be impatient to grow up?? The reality is, throughout life ‘stuff’ happens and most of us get discouraged and stop dreaming. Social conformity and hiding under a cozy security blanket becomes our norm.
Most give up on their dreams. Give up on themselves.
TODAY, I encourage you to take back the power you may have lost over time. Take count of your blessings and then turn your focus forward!!! Dream up the life you want... see it!! ... feel it!! ... Then one step at a time get out there and DO IT!!! ........ If you feel lost in this process and could use some direction, it would be my pleasure to work with you!
For the rest of September, I am offering a discount to all new clients. My introductory calls/meetings are FREE (with zero obligation to buy) so feel free to message me to set one up to see if coaching is a good fit for you ☺️ For remote clients, I use ZOOM.

I’m @pollyann67 and this is my beginning. My why is because I spent 17 years in a not so great marriage that left me with no self esteem, and for the past 7 years since my divorce, ive lived inside my comfort zone and eating myself to death out of loneliness and convenience while I still try to manage being alone. I was recently interviewed for a work article and asked what my hobbies were and it devastated me that I had none. The hobbies I want to do, I can’t. Because of my weight. All I could tell them was reading was my hobby. I’m 51 and so tired of feeling this way. My mom recently passed away (June) after suffering bone cancer for 2.5 years and it made me think that i need to change my life. I don’t want my kids to have to care for me if I get sick because of my weight (or any issues from being overweight). I want to be active and healthy for my grandkids, I want to travel, be more active, volunteer more, go on a mission trip, leave my corporate job I’ve been at for 25 years to do something I love. I want a life. At the rate I’m going now, I want have any of that. What have you done in the past? Everything. Weight Watchers (20+ times), low carb, Advocare, Thrive, Herbalife...What makes you think you will succeed now? Because if I don’t I’m worried what may happen to me. I’m also listening to podcasts that are helping me to change my mindset about my eating habits. I’m realizing more and more that I’m eating to fill a void. #wlbegining #wlstories
Show some unconditional love, support and encouragement to Polly in comments!!! As a support community.... we can do this together!!!
What is @wlbeginning: non profit support group for people just starting their journey. Details on first post in page.

Do you pull out your phone the instance you are bored? You’re a ‘zombie checker’! Zombie checks are the unthinking times you use your device to fill in the gaps in your day- eg pulling out your phone while waiting in line for coffee, waiting for dinner to cook or when there is a lull in the tv program. Our zombie hours can creep up on us but there’s a way to keep them in check. More in my latest article @abcnews .

Good morning beautiful souls! 🧡

I woke up this morning super excited for all the health seminars I have locked in for the remainder of the year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I didn't enjoy learning at school, reading or educational events/excursions when I was younger. Now I'm all about self-education when it comes to health; and I enjoy learning from books, health events, documentaries and podcasts. I'm more open to the fact that I really dont know everything - a hard thing to acknowledge with an ESTJ personality type and as a Sagittarius 😂

I believe these events are the way forward - real, inspiring, life changing information that opens your eyes to so much more! And did I mention most of them dont break the bank (Don Tolman for FREEEE, hell yess!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's time to take back control of your health, make it a priority, invest in your health, self-educate, be informed and then pay it forward. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What health seminars/workshops are you excited for? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
