Besides being an avid blog starter (and blog quitter) I am the mother of two wonderful little boys and a puppy. Yes, it is a mad house. I also happened to be married to the most amazing husband in the world. I am on A journey of personal health and fitness. I am learning to have a better relationship with my body and food!
For a long time now I have not been happy in my body. And it was very hard to be happy at all. On top of that, I felt horrible for feeling bad! Everything in my life is pretty amazing. My husband, My children, our new house, Everything seemed to go together. Except me.
For as long as I can remember, I have used food to cope with my feelings of inadequacy. And in high school, I had the metabolism to handle it. Then I had kids. Before I go on, let me tell you, I love my children more than anything. They have made my life 100000 times better.
But, they did take a toll on my body (definitely worth it). The hard part was, I had not built up any self-discipline to be able to lose the weight. And, I still had the habit of eating my feelings. That, plus having my metabolism slow waaaayyy down, was not a good combination.
I gained an enormous amount of weight. I’m very embarrassed to even say that. I have hidden from most of my friends because of it. I hated myself and still am working on the self-love.
As I’ve been working on the self-acceptance and love, I’ve realized, Health goes hand in hand with learning to love yourself.
I’m still just starting out, and don’t yet have all the amazing before and after pictures yet, but I know this is going in a whole new, better direction.
I’m finally taking time for me, and making my physical AND mental health a priority. And I’m going to keep you all updated (whether you like it or not!) It’s my form of keeping accountable and not giving up!
And if anyone ever needs someone to talk to or anything, definitely message me! If you know me, you know I love talking. So I will never not want to talk!
