I haven't always felt confident or comfortable in my own skin. I used to be unhappy with my appearance, tipping the scales at over 200 pounds. I longed to feel strong and self-assured, but it seemed out of reach. The life I was leading was suffocating me, and I couldn't envision a better future for myself and my daughters. Doubt consumed me, and I believed I wasn't worthy or capable of living the life I truly desired. My heart felt empty, and negative thoughts echoed in my mind, reinforced by hurtful words from my ex-partner. I questioned my right to dream of a joyful future where I controlled my own destiny.
Sadly, there came a time when I felt like throwing in the towel, just as I had done several times before.
It seemed like I didn't quite fit into this world, as if I didn't belong. The simple joys of feeling the sun on my face or hearing the birds sing felt distant and unattainable.
But I made a firm decision not to let those feelings define me any longer.
I woke up one day and consciously chose to reclaim my life—to take it back.
You see, giving up wasn't an option because I had two incredible daughters who depended on me. They were, and still are, my anchor in this chaotic world.
This realization fueled my motivation to focus on what I could control: my weight and my eating habits. I have to transform my life, permanently!
I had traveled the weight loss journey many times before, but it wasn't just about shedding a few pounds.
There were deeper underlying factors contributing to my weight gain, even though I wasn't fully aware of them at that time.
Nonetheless, I always had a sense of what constituted a healthy diet. That's why I made the conscious choice to remove meat from my meals and embrace a vegetarian lifestyle.
But it didn't stop there. I realized that in order to make lasting transformations, I needed to address other aspects of my life.
I gradually incorporated exercise into my daily routine, alongside the changes I made in my eating habits.
To help me visualize successfully reaching my goals, I started meditating and engaging in mental rehearsal exercises.
I delved into the depths of my mind, working on clarity and understanding the patterns that kept me stuck. I sought knowledge through courses and additional readings, learning how to counsel myself, shift my thoughts, overcome obstacles, and create a calm space within my chaotic world.
To stay accountable and motivated, I sought out an accountability partner who could support me on my journey.
I even summoned the courage to purchase clothes a few sizes smaller, envisioning the day when I would radiate confidence and vitality in them. In my mind,
I mentally rehearsed how I would look and how I would walk once those dresses fit me perfectly.
I could almost feel myself embodying the size small—the size of the dress I chose, despite the salesperson's suggestion of going for at least a medium.
With confidence, I explained to her that I was purchasing that dress because I was committed to achieving my weight loss goals.
She made assumptions about my abilities based solely on my appearance, underestimating my unwavering determination to pursue my dreams.
Finally! It's an incredible feeling when my eating habits improved and my body started to transform. It was like the fog of unhealthy eating and excess weight lifted, revealing the real me.
I began to realize that I had the ability to set goals and actually achieve them. With each small, attainable goal I conquered, my self-belief grew stronger, and my confidence soared.
I understood that I had the power to carve my own path, to take charge of the direction my life was heading. I decided to put my theory to the test and started making decisions based on what I wanted, not letting fear dictate my choices.
I took leaps of faith, establishing boundaries that demonstrated self-love and showed others how I wanted to be treated.
I underwent personal growth, acquiring knowledge and developing into the person you see before you today.
Becoming a Wellness Empowerment Coach was a natural progression for me because I want to assist individuals who, like myself, have felt lost in the fog, believing there's no roadmap to a positive future.
