I am one pound away from losing 40lbs after my 4th baby. It has been a painful struggle but not in the ways you may think.
These last few years have been such a struggle health wise. Learning about the boys' food allergies, finding out I have celiacs, figuring out the pain that isn't related to the celiacs is my gallbladder and finding that my body is responding very poorly to a lot of foods. it has just been painful.
I recently re-injured my neck injury from a car accident I had in 2005. It was hard to stand myself in all the pain.
I don't believe that anyone should have to be in that much pain for such a long time. It is a dark place. I am so thankful I have found the essential oils, they have helped me so much! It is still hard to believe that some lil oils helped that much. I was very hopeless and so thankful to find such pure, high quality oils that are helping my body heal itself!
Letting the body heal takes time, it's not over night. I am just thankful to be feeling a little better each day.
I do have to stay mindful off all the things that hurt my body, cus no amount of oils are going to keep those foods from damaging my body more. I have to keep harming foods out of my body unless I want to add the pain back to my body.
Now the next element is the exercise. I have to get it consistent again. My body feels so much better with exercise!!! I want to feel stronger again!
I am so thankful for the little improvements, the little losses in weight, it is all adding up to feeling a lot better. I still have a ways to go but I am so thankful for where I am now.
