***Just a note these pictures are 6 months apart. Being healthy is a journey not an instant thing. It’s hard work. That’s why a lot of people don’t do it. You have to decide it’s important to you and work your ass off.***
This is going to be super real and honest and probably long so be prepared. So the picture on the LEFT: I was trying to figure out my passion when it came to exercise but because I could t figure out what that was I was depressed, had a serious binge eating and restricting problem, hated what I saw in the mirror, never took pictures unless I had to, had no energy what so ever, had no relationship with God, was just going through the motions of life hoping whatever I was suppose to do would just fall in my lap and one day id be fit again. Also obsessing over my weight every single day and feeling like I had to lift weights to get what I want even though it bored me.
The picture on the RIGHT: SO HAPPY and fulfilled. Found a passion that drives me to be better every single day at my job, in my marriage and reminded me how awesome my relationship with God is and how much he loves me. Have not stepped on the scale in 2 months. Feeding my body in a healthy way but by no means restricting or binging. Have more energy than I ever remember having.
I just want anyone out there to know that if you feel lost and stuck and unmotivated, I GET IT. Keep pushing through and find something that makes being healthy fun. You do not have to be in an insta model that lifts weights every day if that is boring to you because it was boring to me. Join a sports team or a workout group or go hiking! There is more than 1 way to be healthy. ☺️
