I knew I had hit my breaking point when I couldn't go out without a drink in my hand. Not because I liked to party but because it was the only way I could get the gremlin in my brain to shut up about how awful I looked and FELT. Trying on clothes to go out was asking for a meltdown EVERY SINGLE TIME. It didn't matter what I put on I HATED the reflection looking back at me and even worse, I hated MYSELF for letting this happen. I was in absolute denial. Blaming the weight gain on hormones, my thyroid, stress, being sick, WHATEVER - you name it, I blamed it for not being able to lose weight.
One day I just decided I couldn't live like this anymore. I was suffering from serious adrenal fatigue, I was anxious ALL the time and very depressed. It took feeling THAT awful to finally take RESPONSIBILITY for my own body. The ONLY reason I gained the weight and the ONLY reason I was not losing it was because of MY actions. That sure stung my ego a little bit realizing it but it was more PAINFUL to stay stuck where I was so I made a decision and I stuck to it, even on the days I didn't want to get out of bed. Even on the days I wanted pizza and mac & cheese AND a cheeseburger.
It was HARD but what helped me stick to it was this POWERFUL group of women supporting me. I joined a virtual accountability group with other women facing the same challenges as me and we did it TOGETHER. On the hard days and on the victorious days we SUPPORTED each other and LOVED each other through the journey. It was the first time in my life I didn't quit something that I had started.
I took back my life and now I want to help you take back yours. Maybe your situation isn't as dire as mine, maybe you just want to lose those last stubborn pounds, or maybe you read my story and see yourself in it. EITHER WAY, I want you to know that it is POSSIBLE to making true and lasting change. It is possible to END yo-yo dieting. It is possible to live a life of true BALANCE.
I am opening up TWO different groups in January to help you have access to the resources, support, COMMUNITY and coaching (ME!) so you can reach those goals once and for all. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can chat, I'm excited to see how I can help YOU! Talk soon beautiful! xoxo
