I have lived the weight loss struggle and the heart break that goes with it. I get it. I was chronically sick for 5 years as I tried to raise kids, get my body back, run my business, and manage a household.
When you are looking for solid solutions, you want someone who really gets it. Who gets YOU! Someone to understand what you’ve been through and knows first-hand how to get out. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think there is any man who can tell a woman about pregnancy, child birth, and the struggle to ‘get it back together’ better than a woman who has lived it. Ladies, we are a tribe and we here to help each other rise up and rock it out.
You see, I was always told I was “not enough” …not quite toned enough.. a little soft… need to lose just 10 pounds… at the age of 14 from my ballet teachers publicly pointing out my pudge in class, at the age of 20 my teachers and agents telling me I just need to lose weight & tone up a little and I will work, age 25 to my boyfriend sitting me down and directly telling me I had gained weight and needed to get in shape, age 33 a nutritionist telling me ‘you better lose that baby weight or people are going to wonder…’
Wow. As if I’m not my own worst critic, it felt like the whole world, my whole life, was telling me my value was in my body and it wasn’t good enough, so neither am I … great. Check please.
When we don’t feel good about ourselves, we don’t make choices that serve us. We make choices based on what we think we deserve which is based on how we feel and think about ourselves. Look around and see what you think about yourself. What choices have you made? The world reflect back to you that which you are creating.
