I’ve shared a lot of my journey about being unhappy, overweight, uncomfortable in my skin, lacking confidence, having health problems, etc and how I finally found things that have turned my health around and really, actually worked.
But what I don’t talk a lot about is the middle. The desperation to fix it, to find that magic cure all. Let’s be honest, I tried everything from crazy diets to diet pills to whatever was the next miracle cure and would solve it all.
My weight went up and down all through my 20s and early 30s. I lost weight with the newest fad diet of whatever, low carb for example, but as soon as I ate some carbs (cause I love them) I gained it back. I lost some weight with diet pills that I hid in my drawer so no one would find them. And my heart would race all day and I felt like a crazy person.
You name it I probably tried it and just felt worse and worse. I only cared what the number on the scale said. BIG MISTAKE!
All those times the scale went down it wasn’t because I was taking care of myself and doing healthy things. I still felt horrible, I still wasn’t happy, and I was frustrated on top of it.
Have you ever felt like this? Well you’re not alone sister!
It’s been a long road but I have finally learned a couple of things –
1. There aren’t any magic pills
2. The scale doesn’t define me or you. Throw it out!
3. Health and feeling good come first. Everything else will come along with taking care of your body.
I’m pretty sure I weigh more now than that skinny girl in the top right picture but I don’t care. I know I feel better mentally, emotionally, and physically now than I ever have. It’s never too late to make changes.
