Once upon a time, I felt trapped inside my own body. I thought of myself as this beautiful, skinny and successful person who just needed to break free of my “fat body.” Then, if that happened, I would be happy.
In March I decided to commit myself to daily nutrition check-ins and a workout program – 30 minutes a day – that was realistic for my schedule.
And in just one short month, I’ve realized that my entire mindset about who I am was completely wrong. I AM a beautiful and successful person. I don’t need some number on a scale to tell me that. I want a healthy body, not a “skinny” one.
Each day I discover something new and wonderful. Maybe it’s a deeper belief in myself and maybe it’s a reminder to accept my body’s limitations – it’s a marathon, not a sprint!
If you have struggled or are struggling, please know that you’re not alone. Others have the same fears, the same hopes for the future. I encourage you all to set aside a little time for self-reflection. It’s the first step toward changing your life – creating a fulfilled and purpose-driven life.
