Still making progress—even comparing these face shots!! Slow and steady wins the race. I wanted a life change not a quick fix.
Body Image—who else has struggled here!?
You all have seen my posts on my #keto journey over the last 13 months but I figured I would give you a little bit of background in hopes to help others out there that might be living or have a similar story.
I can’t even nail down the age that the negative #bodyimage issues started for me. Let’s be honest—little girls can be so incredibly mean and we are so hard on ourselves. I remember one of my so called friends calling me #fat in 3rd grade. I look back at those pictures and say WOW—I was anything but fat.
In middle school and high school and even early college I was incredibly active playing volleyball and basketball mainly. I remember looking at the other girls thighs—we wore spandex for our matches, and desperately wanting to be long and lean—I didn’t want the muscle tone or definition.
Fast forward to college and I started #bodybuilding type protocols to shed the fat which consisted of Low Fat and Low Cal with crazy workouts with a cheat meal that would turn into binging on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches( I didn’t even like peanut butter). During my training I remember the lead trainer asking me if I had an eating disorder—I of course quickly responded with “of course not” but if I’m being honest the honest answer was “absolutely”.
As you all know the last 13 months have been life changing for me—no more deprivation (I have tried it all folks—Paleo, Whole 30, Low Fat/Low Cal) identifying my food sensitivities and Keto has absolutely changed my life. No more obsessing about food. All of these experiments have given me so much #gratitude for where I am today and the journey that brought me here. Also my body image #goals are so different now, however this journey is what has gotten me to this wonderful space that I can’t help but share.
Sooooo what’s my point!? Keep pushing to be the best version of yourself both mentally and physically—the two are intertwined.
