Everyone has their own journey. Maybe your life is exactly how you dreamed it would be, or maybe you realize it is time for a change.
My struggle seems to be a common one in today’s society. I am overweight. I have never been the skinny girl, but today I weigh more than I ever have (not including pregnancy.)
I can try and make excuses as to why I am overweight. I gave birth to two beautiful boys. I bounced back quickly after the first pregnancy. I was almost my pre-pregnancy weight by the time I bought home that bundle of joy.
The second pregnancy proved to be more challenging. I suffered with postpartum depression/anxiety. I was consumed by my feelings day in and day out. Eating was my way to make myself feel better.
Now that I have a handle on my emotions, I think it is time to start focusing on my body. Becoming healthier should help my lingering anxiety as well.
I am self-conscious. I know I am unhealthy. I want to feel better about myself. I am not setting out to obtain the approval of other, but I am setting out to make myself healthy.
Tomorrow my journey changes. I want to document my journey. It will help me stay accountable, and help me look back at my progress.
