I love food! And for most of my life it wasn’t a problem. But after the birth of my second child, things changed. At first, I expected to bounce right back to my pre-pregnancy weight. But a year went by and my weight never dropped. Then another year went by, and I still hadn’t lost the weight. In fact, things went the other direction and I started putting on pounds.
By then it wasn’t baby weight anymore—it was weight I gained from stress and emotional eating. Every day was a struggle against depression. And I coped with the stress by grabbing a burger, frozen custard, or other treat. At first, it was once in a while. Then I began to rely on the pick me up food would give me; I needed it to get through the day.
Raising babies is tough enough, but my lifestyle made it worse. I felt unmotivated, sluggish, and hopeless that anything would ever change.
But things did change for me! And it actually started with some small goals and simple steps. When I realized I was using food to cope with my stress, I got willing to try something different. I learned some new tools and began to practice a new mindful approach to eating.
The results have been great! I’ve dropped weight and gained new energy! I’m able to get outside and do more fun activities with my family. I enjoy my life way more. And, because I’m eating them mindfully (not mindlessly munching) I actually enjoy my treats more than I used to!
Maybe the best thing is that I’ve discovered a new passion to help other people lose weight and break free from the cycles that are holding them back. I love helping others achieve their goals and live the lives they love so I became a certified health coach.
