Hello beautiful people, I hope you have had a brilliant weekend..
I am not sure why I didn't start my blog with this video but today seemed like a good day to remind myself and others that we can do this!!
About 5 years ago I started a weight loss journey and lost close to 60 kilos. I did it through eating healthy, exercising and believing that I could do it.. It took just over a year to get to a good weight and I had never felt so better.. I started the weight loss journey with the right intents, losing weight because of health but then I became obsessed and I started losing weight because of how I would look. I had expectations to meet, mine and others and I wasn't happy until I got there..
To be totally honest with you all, even when I got there, I wasn't happy, I saw flaws, I picked on little things and I compared myself to others. Why?? Because I became so self absorbed, so worried about how I looked, my figure, the clothes I wore that no matter how hard I tried I would of never of been happy.. The internal struggle was never about how I looked but a deeper insecurity in who I was.
I can now tell you that even though I put a lot of weight back on during my pregnancy, I am happy now, I don't compare, I don't strive for perfection but I choose to live a healthy long life so I can see my children grow. When I get to my before weight again and can wear nice clothes that will just be a bonus in this journey, not a must!!
So sit back and enjoy my video of how I once lost weight and know that it can be done again, the right way this time!!
