Healthy is the new skinny
If you follow me on social media, you may find that I post things about health & fitness quite a bit--because I'm very passionate about it. There are so many aspects of my health & fitness journey that not many people are aware of--let's just say, I've been through a lot and I'm thankful God has seen me through those challenges. I'm a work in progress and I definitely don't have it all figured out. But for anyone who thinks I've always been in great health/great shape/and always on top of my health & fitness game...I'm just gonna drop this right here :).
I gained a lot of weight when I was pregnant with Trey. I remember getting on the scale after I had him thinking "Wow! I have a lot of work to do." But the worst part was, I was unhealthy & didn't FEEL good. Instead of accepting defeat and a life of sluggishness, I set goals--big ones and little ones and then I focused on crushing those goals.
Little by little, my weight started to go down and my body started to heal itself. In total, I lost almost 80 pounds! But the best part is: I regained my health!!
In the pictures, you can only see the outward transformation, but I experienced a transformation from the inside out. And that will ALWAYS mean more to me than what the scale says--any day! Healthy is the new skinny!
