My Letter To Women
I know what it's like to gain weight, and only see women in photos who are super fit, which makes you feel ashamed of your body.
I know what it's like when you have so many jobs and responsibilities pulling you in so many directions that you end up feeling worn out at the end of the day, and couldn't even think of trying to make it to the gym or cook a healthy meal.
I know what it's like to look in the mirror and speak awful, hurtful, and unkind words to the woman staring back at you... the self-loathing I've felt in times of my life was completely paralyzing.
I know what it's like to sneak into the kitchen at midnight and binge eat an entire box of cookies and then the next day try to hide the evidence so that no one finds out about my eating disorders.
I know what it's like to go to the gym consistently for months on end but never see progress in the mirror or on the scale.
I know what it's like when you feel so confused about where to even start when it comes to getting fit.
I know what it feels like to feel completely out of control when it comes to your health.
I know what it feels like to be in these situations because I've been in every. Single. One.
The shame and guilt and fear and failure I've known during these times in my life was overwhelming...
I also know what it looks like on the other side.
I know what it feels like to finally learn that the weight on the scale does NOT determine your worth.
I know what it feels like to become your biggest cheerleader as opposed to being your worse critic.
I know how empowering it feels when you can walk into the gym and know exactly what to do in order to reach your physique goals.
I know the freedom of understanding that there are no "good foods" or "bad foods," but just that there are some foods we should eat more of, and some foods we should eat less of.
I know how it feels to be confident in your body and proud of whom you are becoming.
I know that making your health a priority is not selfish, and when you spend just a little bit of time on yourself each day, you are able to give everyone else around you the best of you...
...not just what is left of you.
