Because I know how it is to feel hopeless and that I would never be thin. I still struggle with that image sometimes. I weighed in at 158.2 this morning. That's 11 pounds up from my lowest, which was right before my Mom died just this past April 7th. I've been gentle with myself and a lot lax in my ways, to tell you the truth. I need to get back on track but I have to get my thinking back, too. I have to remember that I'm healing and I need to get back to eating to feed my body and not my emotions. In gaining that amount of weight back I think I look like this:
But what I really look like is this:
You can't see very well, but my face is still thin and I really look fine. This was taken today. Do you see what the mind does? I get it. I know where you are or where you have been because I've been there. My focus is on weight loss and my target market is women who are struggling to lose weight because of a distorted body image. I can help you because I went through it and I still go through it every day even though I'm in size 10 pants and look just fine. Even though I only gained 10 pounds through a tragedy and knee surgery and still can't do the activity I was doing just three weeks ago. I get it and I can help.
Now tomorrow starts my Beachbody Challenge Group and I need to set a good example as the head of the group, a Beachbody Coach and soon to be Health Coach as soon as I find the people who need my help.
