Every time I look through old pictures, there’s always something that is the same in all of them. I was always hiding behind something.
I was hiding because:
I was embarrassed. 😞
I felt terrible about how I looked. 😞
I was miserable on the inside. 😞
I had the job I had wanted since I was a little girl. I had a husband and a child who I loved very much. ❤️ But I wasn’t happy. 😞
In fact I was suffering from depression and I was taking medication for it. The medication made me gain more weight, which made me even more depressed. It was a viscous cycle.
I was STUCK.
Until I decided to quit wallowing in my self-pity and DO something about it.
I did all the wrong things first. I went on every diet known to man-low carb, low fat, grapefruit diet, low calorie, you name it, I tried it. None of them worked because they weren’t sustainable.
When it got too hard, I resorted to going on a doctor and getting prescription diet pills. Yes, those worked. They worked right up until I quit taking them. They are not good for your body and I knew that, so once I lost 30 pounds or so I stoped them.
Of course as soon as I stopped, the weight came right back on and then some.
I finally realized that in order to be fit and healthy, I had to find something sustainable for me and for my family. I couldn’t live on salads and chicken everyday of my life.
So I joined a 30 day online boot camp. I was skeptical, but I had already tried tons of other things, so I decided to go for it. I learned what to do and how to fit it in to my busy lifestyle. I found that mastering my mindset was where most of the battle had to take place.
Maybe you’re like me. Maybe you’ve tried it all and nothing sticks. Maybe you need someone to help you. Maybe it’s time to quit giving up and making excuses and go for it.
My next boot camp starts October 30. Are you ready to join me?
