On a cold and sunny day I stepped on the scale and to be honest my face made a look that was not too pretty. The scale said I gained 15lbs and I was in a disagreement. Now, I’ll be transparent I struggle daily with achieving my weight loss goals. And why? There are many reasons but here are my top 4.
1. I am a emotional eater. So, pretty much when things make me happy I celebrate with food. When life punches me in the gut? I often find comfort in food. And you know what? I can cook some amazing food.
2. I don’t love working out. Yup, I said it. I find it necessary but at times painful. I become easily bored and I simply find more pleasure in walking by the water then pumping it out in a gym.
3. Work. Life. Balance. Is still an ongoing battle. I am woman who wear many hats well but I am human with the tendency to get worn out and stress out from time to time. Did you know good things can cause stress also?
4. I love me the way I am NOW. My desire to lose weight is purely about longevity and quality of life. I clearly understand the stress and strain on my type of body frame. But even with that being said, I have never really had a problem being the “big girl”, “Phatty Fat”, “Thicker Than Snickers” or “Plus Size”…no I have pretty much been okay with me! I’m too cute honey!
All four of these areas impact my success or lack of success on a daily basis to reach my health goals. And you know what? IT IS OKAY. I will eventually reach my goals because I know it is important to me, my family and I have a plan! I walk my talk! As I provide goal coaching in many areas, I also make sure that I take my own advice. What are you doing to reach your health goal? Have a plan? Email me today and let’s get started!

What I will not do is body shame myself. I will not hide or not stand boldly in this here now body. And why? Because #THISBODY is MINE on the good and bad days. And I will not dishonor it by starving it on crash diets and unhealthy weight loss gimmicks. No, no, NO! I lost over 100lbs by taking each day at a time and as I tackle this journey I will continue to take it day by day.
I want to encourage you to keep moving forward. Keep striving for what you want your body to be realistically but don’t forget to love your self the whole journey through. No matter if your 500lbs losing weight or 150lbs we all deserve grace.
