A couple years ago I was forced to start my journey. My daughter was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis so I began converting our diets. I did it for her health, not mine though and after the kids would go to bed I’d pick up fast food and binge or get the tub of ice cream that was hidden in the freezer and go town.
I was struggling and trying to cope with a lot. Right before her diagnosis we experienced a lot of loss. Two miscarriages and a full term still birth, living in a different state from my parents and half my siblings, feeling isolated and alone. Food was my comfort and my poison.
I wasn’t ready to let it go yet but little by little the changes I made for my children began to rub off on me.
I knew what was right, I knew how to eat but I just couldn’t seem to get myself to do it.
When we had our last baby it brought a lot of healing into my soul. And I began to come back to myself again. It was the push I needed to get my act together.
But life was still crazy, we decided to experimentally move to California to see if my daughters symptoms improved. My husband stayed in Texas and the kids and I lived with my parents for 6 months. I lost 56 pounds (240 to 184)in the spring/summer of 2016 just to regain most of it when living with too much temptation got to be too much.
By the end of 2016 I was back to 212 pounds. We finally sold our house in Texas and Brady was able to come out to California. It was great to live together again, be in our own home again, I finally felt like I had all the tools I needed to be successful!
In January 2017 I made my resolution to begin cooking at home and cut out fast food. The Instant Pot helped my procrastinator personality tremendously and I was able to accomplish this! In three months I lost 46 pounds!
No matter where you’re at in your journey, beginning, end or not even started, all of your struggles are coming together to shape you into the best you you can be. They’re increasing your compassion, empathy, and understanding and preparing you for whatever journey lies ahead.
Some seasons are cold and dark and others are blossoming and bright. Taking care of yourself is the best selfish thing you will ever do. 💜💜
