Growing up I was always the “chubby” one (or so I thought) and I HATED my body at a very early age. I started my first diet at 11 years old — I brought Jenny Craig bars to middle school for lunch… yes, really!
I was never really active or athletic until getting involved in dance at the age of 13. It was at that moment, that I started to become aware of my body and extremely ashamed of its downfalls. As I got older and continued dancing, and avoiding the gym altogether, my battles with weight went from weighing too much, to weighing too little, thanks to a starvation diet and complete body hatred.
I was weak, frail, and felt sick 90% of the time. I was obsessed with food, quiet, insecure, and extremely unconfident in myself. Then a major shift happened.
I gave up dance in favor of CrossFit (I know that is a major buzzword now but hear me out…). I suddenly learned what it felt like to feel strong. I set and achieved goals regularly that had nothing to do with the scale. My thoughts around food changed from what I could eat to make me skinny, to what I could eat to perform better.
I’m not going to lie, none of this happened overnight. It took me time, energy, effort, and a lot of tears and frustration along the way but I figured out how to eat to fuel my body. To feel confident, comfortable, and strong in my body. And absolutely love, and adore exercise.
How did I do this, you ask? Well, I built a strong support system of like-minded people who educated, motivated, and stood by me. This was CRUCIAL. For the first time in my life, I can honestly say I’ve found peace with my body and started showing it love it deserves, I am healthier than I have ever been, and I am on track to live a life I absolutely adore for the rest of my life.
I’m here to help you do the same.
