From a 23 year old mom of a 2 year old to a 31 year old with 3 wild kiddos almost 3,5 & 10.
Life throws many things your way as you get older, good and bad. Having babies, especially close together wrecks havoc on your body and your mind one way or another. That 23 year old was had left a marriage full of domestic violence, was in the middle of a divorce with a nasty custody battle while living with her mom trying to get back on her own two feet after being a SAHM mom for over a year. She thought she was healthy because she was thin.. too thin, weighed the least she ever had by nearly 15 lbs! She was mentally a royal mess, abuse and court does that to you. It’s difficult to overcome but she pushed on for her child.
Now the 31 year old? That’s me 😀 so much happier! I’m definitely not 115 lbs anymore and still not back to pre-baby weight but that’s because it’s just a number. Thanks to the lifestyle I’ve chosen, cleaning up the things in my life I can control such as what I put in and on my body, I’m so much better. I can now keep up with all 3 of my kids, go to the gym 4-5x/ week and mentally be there for my family.
Over the past two years I’ve overcome many things I never thought I would. I lost 40+ lbs, ended my post partum depression and seasonal allergies, decreased my anxiety, got rid of my sugar addiction, cleared up some toe fungus (disgusting right? it’s not gone but improved), no more daily headaches and naps! I rejoined the SAHM world 6 years ago but this time I’m still able to contribute to my family financially by sharing my love for helping people overcome their health struggles and meet their goals. It’s been the biggest blessing ever. I had no idea how isolated I felt as a SAHM to 3 but God knew I needed a group of amazing people to lift me up and encourage me daily.
Knowing that I’ve been able to successfully help people get control of their lives, go from 27 down to 6 medications (dr approved obviously) and so much more has been so worth making this change in my life!! Never in a million years did I think what started as me just trying to avoid antidepressants would lead to.... continued in comments👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
