August 2015 vs. August 2017
“One of the biggest rewards of losing 163 lbs. has been the self-care and self-love that I’ve learned along the way. I have always been my own worst critic and I would pick myself apart for every little imperfection, inside and out. I neglected my health and I definitely didn’t love myself. I know so many of you can relate.
After battling food addiction and obesity and coming out on the other end a survivor, I have learned many things. One of the best lessons I’ve learned from this journey is to listen to your body and love yourself. Love yourself through the pain and discomfort of change. Love yourself enough to eat right and stay active. Love yourself enough to stay away from toxic people and negative situations. Love yourself enough to say “I am worth it” and fight for it. Fight like your life depends on it, because it does!”
