Weight loss that it is not impossible. be patient, and never quit!

Weight loss that it is not impossible. be patient, and never quit!
I woke up one morning and decided I didn’t want to feel that way anymore…
I always played sports or exercised of some sort in high school and into college.
I didn’t really have to pay attention to what I ate, and I never saw the negative effects that alcohol had in terms of weight gain, specifically.
I wasn’t thin or muscular by any means. I was average.🤷🏻‍♀️
Then I stopped exercising, was on a slew of psychotropic medications, and loveddd to eat and drink!
The weight slowly started to creep up.

I didn’t really notice until I had gained 40 lbs. and didn’t even recognize myself anymore.
I decided then that I didn’t want to feel that way anymore.
I never set out to be who I am today, I just wanted to feel good in my own skin again.
And trust me, it hasn’t been a straight shot to muscles and crop tops.
It’s been 7 years of weight loss, more weight gain, learning myself, learning about nutrition, falling in love with exercise, dealing with mental health issues, losing the weight of others opinions, gaining self love and confidence… and finding the balance in all of it.
I’d be lying if I said that I still don’t struggle.
But I am doing it for the girl who wanted to find herself again, and I do it to show others that it is not impossible. But remember, health and wellness is not a one size fits all. You have to figure out what works best for you, be patient, and NEVER quit!💜
