This chunky babe keeps me laughing at all times these days! ♥️ Oh how his personality is changing and growing! • 𝑯𝒆 is my motivation for chasing better health everyday! I want to chase him around the yard as he grows, I want to say 𝒚𝒆𝒔 to playing with him instead of 𝑰'𝒎 𝒕𝒐𝒐 𝒕𝒊𝒓𝒆𝒅. You see, in order to make a lifestyle change, your why has to be pretty big. It has to scare you, push you, and be 𝒃𝒊𝒈 enough or you’ll stay in the same place all the time. • So if you want change babe, go 𝒄𝒉𝒂𝒏𝒈𝒆! Nothing worth it ever comes easy. I’m so thankful that I put my pride aside 3 years ago and tried a system that could help me lose a lot more than pounds! I know I’m a better person today because of it. ♥️ #seethechangebethechange #journeytobetterhealth #losethebaggage #beyoutiful #youAREfearfullyandwonderfully made #6monthflashback
Making a weightloss plan for myself, because exercise just is not enough on it's own. As well as visualizing how 8 want my life to look like, the body I want to have and how I'm going to get there. I'm writing it all down. I'm tired to being this weight, I'm tired of having this body. This body is a manifestation of how I felt years ago. It's the product of my deep depression. I did not notice how my body was changing into this form as it was happening, because when I looked good, I already had it in my mind that I was morbidly obese. It started really in grade 6, when my mom pointed out that I was getting chunky to be in my leotard for dance, that I wasn't that good at it anyway, so I quit. I stopped being active because I felt shame about my growing body. I didnt even get a period until grade 9. I reached 100lbs in grade 9. I went through cycles of gaining every summer and losing weight through the school year. My highest in school was 173 lbs. I got it back down to 140lbs by Christmas. I also did not eat during the day at that point. I drank coffee, downed energy drinks, and only brought an orange for lunch every day. Well anyway, in started getting told to put makeup on, or to dress different because I looked like a boy according to my mom. She also told me that she believed that I will be over 300lbs in my 20s because I have no self control. I also had low self esteem, was not allowed to spend extra time doing things I loved, was not allowed out with friends, was not allowed having people over unless they were in the same religion. In grade 7 my mom made me do work out videos every day after school. I know she was trying to instill good habits, but the way she went about it, really did more damage. I didnt have time do do any activity I enjoyed, was put down for how i looked in a leotard instead of encouraging me to keep going. My time was meant to be used to serve jehovah, and I didnt agree with it. I ended up depressed in grade 10, and doing recreational drugs in grade 12, and finally breaking that cycle when I was 22. During that time I got to 215lbs. I'm ready to #losethebaggage

"Again?!?! Do you ever feel like you are in a repetitive cycle with some people? Always trying to prove yourself but inevitably coming up short? I think we can all relate to this but the surprising truth is that even Jesus experienced it. The motives, sincerity, and identity of the Son of God were challenged often AND by those who should have been His greatest supporters. Let that sink in for a moment………" You know, I wouldn't write about these topics if I didn't struggle with them myself. I have found such healing and help from Jesus over emotional turmoil. Check out what I learned that offers relief and freedom from manipulative people! Jesus is the ultimate example of how to deal with challenging relationships and these lessons are just one more proof of that.

Hangxiety is all too common. The cure? I’m no doctor but the answer could lie in releasing yourself from the shit that holds you back, liberating yourself from the constraints a perfection based materialistic capitalist society places on you and figuring out, then being, your authentic self in an inauthentic world #hangxiety #losethebaggage #spirit #soulwork #alignment
I was stubborn as hell. . Nobody was going to tell me what to do and how to live. I just figured the things that I was doing were mine, so they weren't hurting anyone else. After all, it was my body and my business so I could eat, smoke, drink whatever the hell I liked, right? . Problem was, if I kept that up, I would have lost the most person person in my life...my wife Melissa (aka @sexyfoodtherapy). A person who helped me find myself, my happiness and a direction where I never saw one before. Would it have been worth losing her just because of my own stubborn ways? . What made her and I fight for months was the thought of having to give up the smoking (and that includes pot) and reduce how much I drank. What I realized was, I wasn't even happy or enjoying these substances most of the time. I'd be smoking a joint and wonder, "why the hell am I even smoking this?" . It took years for me to shift my way in thinking. One day Melissa, suggested that I get into listening to audiobooks since I walk everywhere. The first one I downloaded was Motivation Manifesto by @brendonburchard and it was the catalyst to me becoming more open to change and ditching toxic people from my life. And I'll tell ya, once you become more 'woke' you start to see a lot of bullshit around you that you didn't see before. . When I gave up heavy drinking, pot and cigarettes, I realized they were only distractions and ways to numb me. Now I'm happier, I have more energy, and my relationship with my wife has greatly approved. . Now I'd love to hear from you: Are you stubborn or have a partner who is? Do you actually believe in the fight you're having? Or is your ego just getting in the way in fear of losing control?

First, and most importantly, Toni Morrison was a brilliant woman who exuded an unparalleled quality in not only what she wrote, but in everything she said too. The world has lost a great one. This quote was posted by a fellow wellness coach. Read it. Let it sink in. Read it again. Does is it resignate in some way? It does for me! I personally have some things weighing on my heart ... potential decisions that will change the course of my life and my family's lives too. I've made the difficult choice to step back from toxic situations/relationships before. Has it been easy? No! But as I find myself at a crossroads this was the reminder I needed. My fellow coach/friend said, "One of my biggest take aways from coaching is that no matter the season of your life you can make a change, you just need to decide it's time and we help you with a plan to get there". Yes! Having a coach, then becoming a coach, has been the best thing for me in implementing change in my health. Who knew today it would carry over as a catalyst for forward motion in my life's journey as well?
Let me tell ya something ....🗣 People will judge you if you get a spray tan, get in the fake-n-bake or lay out in the sun.☀️ People are going to judge you if you dress your kids up in big bows or don’t have them dressed at all and in a diaper.👶🏼 People are going to judge you if you take a chance or if you sit on your booty.🙅🏼 People are going to judge you if you work a traditional job or if you choose a different path. 🎸 People are going to judge you if you workout or don't workout.🏋🏼♀️ People are going judge you if you eat the cookie or don't eat the cookie.🍪 People are going to judge you if you're loud or if you're quiet. 🤐 People are going to judge you if you have 7 kids or no kids.👩👧👧 People are going to judge you if you make too much money or not enough money.💰 People are going to judge you if you carry a Wal-Mart purse or a LV.👜 People are going to judge you if your marriage is “too good” or “too bad.”💏 People are going to judge you if you wear a bikini or a one piece.👙 People are going to judge you. Period. Done deal. They will.🙃 So .... friends, regardless of what you choose you're getting judged. You can’t make everyone happy so you might as well do YOU!👊🏼 It’s freeing and way more fun!✌🏼 Check your heart’s motive, align it with the will of God, do what you know is right and blaze your own path for an audience of ONE!😘
