It all comes down to mindset…

I remember the picture on the left so clearly. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It was exactly a year ago, and I was in search of spring clothing for an upcoming trip to Punta Cana. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I felt so uncomfortable in my skin that day, left the store, and texted my best friend that nothing fit right and I felt huge. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I was working out a lot and making progress. ⁣⁣
I was eating well during the week. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
But I was still struggling with emotional eating on the weekends. ⁣⁣
I was still unhappy with the way I looked. ⁣⁣
I was still battling the emotions that kept me lacking confidence. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Shortly after, the pandemic hit, and I decided enough was enough. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I chipped through my weight loss journey slowly and strategically. ⁣⁣
I started eating MORE to avoid the weekend struggles. ⁣⁣
I stopped buying food I knew would trigger me. ⁣⁣
I started keeping myself accountable with daily weigh-ins. ⁣⁣
I started working out LESS but more efficiently. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I occasionally hear that I’m too skinny now, or too focused on the way I look, or not living a healthy lifestyle, and I want to remind you that it is really difficult to tell the most important piece of a transformation from a picture. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣
The biggest thing that transformed over the past year was my mindset. ⁣⁣
I was able to regain control of my nutrition. ⁣⁣
I was able to learn and understand what was truly keeping me from making progress. ⁣⁣
I was able to get my body to a place where I felt comfortable and confident so that I could start to address the internal piece. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
And to be fully honest my mindset isn’t where I want it to be just yet. ⁣⁣
But those action steps were the first piece of the puzzle to get me closer to confidence. ⁣⁣
Closer to addressing the underlying struggles of body image. ⁣⁣
Closer to transforming my relationship with food and my body. ⁣⁣
