Exactly one year ago this weekend, I got to meet one of my heroes! That's her hand on my shoulder, and that's why I'm grinning so big in this picture! But when I saw this picture, I had to duck into the restroom to cry. That me on the left was me at my heaviest, and I thought there was nothing I could do to change it. I bought into the lie that because of my health and genetics this was as good as it could get and should prepare for it to only get worse.
But the me today, the me on the right.... She kicked that jacked up mindset to the curb! I made some significant life changes, worked my tail off, and have lost almost 40 lbs so far! I feel amazing, my energy is through the roof, and my health has done a complete turnaround!!
And that's just the physical changes! Things have changed emotionally and spiritually, too! It's hard to give God and your family your best when YOU aren't at your best day after day. I missed out on so much and robbed my family of memories and God of honor because I wouldn't take care of myself.
I truly believe God has blessed me with a second chance to love Him and my family with my heart, mind, and soul by taking care of the body He's given me.
Maybe you're where I was and want to be where I am... Drop your email in the comments below if you're ready to get serious about taking care of yourself!
