For the past 4 years I’ve been trying to get my weight down to #onderland (less than 200 lbs) to say it was a struggle is the truth. The struggle was not about exercise, for me it was all about the food.
I used food for many things:
- Pain relief (it really seemed to work)
Over the years I would lose the 1st 10 pounds fairly easy but when crisis or celebrations would come, I would gain again.
2018 has been a year of digging up for me. I had buried trauma that I hadn’t dealt with that caused me to self sabotage my weight loss among other things. My body was literally crying out for change.
I begin asking myself the hard questions, dealing with fear and anxiety, replacing old habits with good ones, and learning to not be so hard on myself!
Maybe you have a goal for yourself that you just can’t seem to meet. If it’s something that only you can do, then you need to find out why? Don’t be afraid to do some digging. If it’s a important to you, don’t let anything stand in your way. Not even you!
