“C O N F I D E N C E // has been a new thing for me. Growing up, I would wear jeans in 100 degrees heat because I didn’t want to show my cellulite filled legs. Some times people would always joke about my “cottage cheese”. I was depressed, but I did not know how to get out of it. I didn’t know how to change. So I ate more.
I was clueless.. once I hit around 200 lbs, I started to starve myself. Over time, my brain started to wire itself to hate food.
I started falling apart, partying almost every night. I did not have God in my life at all.
I fell apart, and had an over dose with my medication.. When I woke up, I looked down at my foot tattoo that says “Walk by Faith, not by Sight”. That’s when I knew I was on the wrong path doing the wrong thing.. this was not the answer. I packed up my things and I went back to my parents in Dallas.
I stayed in my room for almost a month, but every day I would jog to the park and do lunges and squats. Other than that, nothing else. I started to pray again and stop sinning.
I met my old trainer, and he helped me through everything.. he taught me how to workout and how to meal prep. So I committed 110%. I did cardio in the morning and lifting at night. Every day. After about a month I stopped doing as much cardio and moved over to strictly lifting, and I lost the rest of my weight and gained muscle ??? Eating disorders never go away, but we can fight them. When you learn to love yourself and have confidence, it’s so much easier to take care of yourself. With God, all things are possible.
PLEASE SHARE OR TAG SOMEONE WHO NEEDS MOTIVATION!! I didn’t go through all of this for nothing, But so I can help inspire and relate to people. 200lbs-130lbs”
