This is me….18 years old – hated how I looked, how I felt. Hidden and unhappy…I projected happiness on the outside but on the inside I didn’t feel that way.
I gained even more weight over the next 10 years (those pictures to come soon…I have to get the nerve up!) until I decided to love the person I was on the inside and treat my body like the sanctuary my soul and my heart are carried inside of.
The after picture…15 years later – finally at peace with myself.
My goal? To help YOU reach your goals as well – Loving yourself enough to want to treat your body well, to give it the nourishment it needs, to find pleasure in the amazing gift that food is – pure, wholesome, life sustaining food. Finding that gift you have to give to the world so you can create a healthy body to carry you through the rest of your life…a long, healthy vibrant life.
I found this picture last night after not looking back for many years. It immediately made me feel the way I used to feel – I still struggle with always feeling like the “fat kid”, no matter if I’m a size 6. I’ve been asked to share my before pictures often, it is hard to let people see the me they know now, covered in over 100 pounds of extra fat..but I also want to let those of you know who are there and feel like you can’t escape – that I’ve been there too and you CAN do it!
Treat your body well…it houses YOUR beautiful soul.
