Allie Vincent

Monday, December 05, 2016

Just saw a snippet of an interview with Allie Vincent... remember her from Biggest Loser? She lost over a hundred pounds only to gain it back and then some. Her story is my story. Our story. Granted, I haven't needed to lose 100 lbs but the number are all relative. Her story breaks my heart. I see the pain in her face and know hard it is to lose and gain, lose and gain. I know her embarrassment, I know her shame. It sucks. I recently lost 30 lbs and I have never looked or felt better. But just like Allie, it doesn't stop me from "the back side." People will tell me that I look great, and I think..."Catch me in a few months, it'll come back." That's my way...that's my endless cycle. But I am writing this blog to scream to the world and to myself... NOT THIS TIME! I want to rewrite the script. I am NOT my past. I deserve to live in and move through this world in a body that is healthy and strong. I MATTER. I am not destined to be the chubby one all my life. On my Spark profile page, I say I am a wife, mom and athlete because I am!!! I am strong, capable and successful. I can do this...not for a day, month or year, not til the chub comes back...but forever. Prayers to Allie Vincent, that she realizes that she is worth it too.

    You are so worth it. I am hoping through this journey I adjust my eating triggers and find healthy ways to deal with my emotions.
