Health = Wealth
Tuesday, July 02, 2019
July is a new month, new opportunity to grow, love, and nurture. It is also a time for new beginnings, renewed strength, and encouragement. I look forward to a new journey for me.
I have been on a weight-loss/getting healthy journey for the last 10 years and it has not been easy. However, I am thankful for wisdom, self-assessment, and supportive friendships that has helped me along the way.
Growing up, I had a unhealthy relationship with food and my body. I also grew up in a one parent household where it was normal to criticize body weight under the guise of "being helpful" and a mother who continues to struggle with poor body image issues and projection. I am still in recovery from that and am learning to increase positive body image for myself.
After failed attempts of yo-yo dieting and punishing my body, I had to get real with myself. The year 2017 was my breaking point and 2018 was my breakthrough. Now in 2019, I am dedicated and excited for a new journey.
