I shared this with my challenge group today but it's been a reoccurring topic among my conversations lately I wanted to share with you!
I didn't start this health journey to repair my relationship with myself. I really didn't. I was annoyed by a few pounds of baby weight that I couldn't ditch to save my life. I hated the way my clothes fit and I attributed all my self loathing to those few pounds. If I could JUST lose the weight, I'd be happy. I didn't start out with the right mindset but truly caring for myself changed everything!
Well, I was able to shed the pounds with the 21 Day Fix but the weight I really lost was the weight of living for other people's approval. I had spent my entire life trying to be PERFECT all the time. It was exhausting and impossible. Practicing self care literally taught me how to love and appreciate myself just how I was. God used it to free me from a prison I didn't even know I was in and that is why I am so passionate about what we do here!
Your weight is not the problem, your food addiction is not your problem. The problem is that you don't fully see and feel your worth. You were handcrafted by God and even within that, WHO you are is infinitely more important that what you look like!
Yes, I want you to have a healthy body! It is amazing to feel good in your own skin! But it's also freedom to pursue all the incredible things that you were created to do which makes life EXCITING! Food is a blessing. God could have made eating an obligation and instead He made it a joy! When it becomes and idol and a distraction and even a hinderance to your life, it's time to look deeper. It's time to repair the relationship you have with yourself.
Just as with any relationship, it takes time to turn things around. Learning what you truly need, not a false fix, is a process. You are going to make mistakes and learn and grow, but each moment you choose to continue, you heal. You have decided that you are worth fighting for and slowing little by little you see JUST how worthy you really are! I want this for you because it will change your life! It will change how you feel about yourself, it will change how you date or how you respond to your spouse. It will change how you raise your children and what they expect of their role in life. It will change how you let people treat you, and help you respond to others from a position of strength.
Yes, I want you to reach every goal you have set for yourself but more than that, I want you to LOVE who you become in the process and I want to see you bloom through it! If we only knew our full potential, we would never settle for a sulky afternoon on the couch with junk food! We would be too busy living exciting fulfilling lives! I know this might sound a little dramatic for a fitness post but this is what the program has done for me!
If you achieve your fitness goal you will have gotten your money's worth but I hope you experience so much more than that!
We are gearing up for another round in April, if you are ready to start working on this relationship, we would love to have you join us! ❤️
