After Pictures don’t always tell the whole story…..
I believe my personal experience is my greatest credential! I did not struggle with my weight or with any emotional eating issues until after I had my first baby and started trying to ‘diet’ to lose weight.
I had gained a significant amount of weight after being on bed rest for the majority of my pregnancy.
Food became my comfort…my only comfort.
I was horrified when the 70 pounds didn’t just fall off with the birth of my baby! I turned to dieting and exercise, sounds good doesn’t it. I cut out all sugar, tried a low-carb diet and started exercising…. The low-carb diet was miserable and so I turned to just eating less.
It worked..but then again, I was only 22 years old.
I jumped on the diet roller coaster and my weight began to yo-yo up and down…..
I increased my cardio, running 10 miles a day, lifting weights, HIIT, cutting more calories, eating only raw foods for 2 years, then I began to spiral into eating the lowest calorie foods I could think of and the misery of eating tiny amounts of food while still struggling at 25% body fat robbed me of my joy, enthusiasm for life and happiness!
I discovered that I could be a normal, healthy weight and #stopthefoodfight by eating #soulsatisfying foods
The most amazing part is that I learned to eat #soulsatisfying food.
Through my experience came a desire to help other women find freedom from the painful ‘diet’ mentality, food rules, and the binge starve cycle.
