Lately I’ve been getting my fair share of not so kind comments…
You look better in the before
You’re too skinny
You look frail
You looked healthier before
And while yes we’re all entitled to our own opinions, I very strongly believe that you can only tell a part of any story from a picture.
What you can’t tell from the ‘before’ picture:
3 years ago, I was on the constant search for my next diet and ashamed that as a nutritionist I couldn’t get it together.
3 years ago, I was hungry 24/7, restricting myself to a low number of calories, and wouldn’t touch sweets. Then I’d overdo it on all of them.
3 years ago, I was at an unhealthy weight for my body, battling depression, and was miserable in my own skin.
3 years ago, I over-trained, taught too many cardio classes, and was exhausted all the time.
3 years ago, I just wanted to be thin.
Now… I do one workout a day and only 2-3 times a week of cardio. I prioritize family time over gym time. I’m focusing on things like reducing stress, improving sleep, and the quality of my foods and overall health. I am happy and confident in my skin and am more concerned about feeling strong than looking any sort of way.
I’d say times have changed
