Imagine 8 years ago I was sitting there looking into the mirror in baggy pants and shirt not wanting to leave my house. I would cry every time I looked in that mirror. I gained 100lbs with my children and it was not easy to lose. I battled deep depression after my sons were born as I held my silent baby boy praying that he would just take a breath and open his eyes. I had a new baby in the NICU and a 12 month old at home which was 300 km away. I was down I was damaged and did not know how to get myself out of it. Meds helped yes but really who wants to live on meds all their life? Those next few years are a blur i missed some major times of my children’s lives. I have pictures i was there but really i was not fully there in my mind. I lost a ton of weight fast and not in a healthy way and then it made its way back on just as quick. The up and downs were not good for my body! It was getting my butt up and moving that made the difference. It was making sure that my kids have a mom to be proud of and setting a great example and giving them the life they deserved! No I am not perfect I never will be, but I am Damn happy and I have never in my life been this confident! And that grows daily as I see what I am capable of doing! I am here and present with my family. I keep busy with tons of activities and running them from studio to arena to field etc! I am Strong and believe in myself!! I am setting a good example for my children to move forward never hating their bodies or themselves but to live life to its fullest, Fuel your body with healthy whole foods and be active!! The scale does not matter it is how you feel on the inside that matters!!
So we all start somewhere it is just take that step out of the comfort zone and set time aside for you as you are a priority!
If i can do it you can do it you just need to take that first step! And support is HUGE!!
I have now turned my passion into a career and i am helping hundreds of people realize that they matter and they can do anything they put their minds too!! My support groups are full of ladies on the same journey , yes we all have different goals but in the end we are trying to lead Healthier lives!!!
