34 lbs and over 25”....phew!
When I was younger I didn't have to worry about my weight, I ate what I wanted. But as we all experience things change as we age.
In my young adult life I struggled with depression and anxiety, and to cope with that I turned to many different things for comfort; food was the best.
My weight and fitness was a vicious cycle, I would loose weight and gain. I would be fit and I would spend days doing nothing.
Over time I gave up, I continued to eat unconsciously and as I aged, my body could no longer keep up with the ridiculous amount of food I was eating. I ballooned to the biggest and unhealthiest I have ever been.
I knew if I wanted to be present and active in my sons life I had to make a change.
I have used, Cardio, yoga, MMA, Country line dancing type workouts and weights or my own body weight. I committed to 30 minutes minimum and a daily shake of my super food, to make this change & it worked!
I have set and achieved so many goals and I could not be more proud of myself.
The biggest change; I know I am not perfect and I still struggle, that's life. But for the first time I am learning to love me and to be ok with the person I am even if others are not. This commitment is forever, this isn't a diet or a passing fad. This is part of me and my everyday.
The numbers above are the proof in black & white....but the way I feel, the workouts I can accomplish now, the energy I have and the way my clothes fit; ALL non-scale victories!
