Because not all transformations are physical, or about weight.
On the left I just had our baby. Ofcourse, my body would reflect that. What didn't show on the outside was what a mess I was.
I was selling the first house I ever bought. The house I fought to buy and was dang proud of it! I had to leave my career that I tirelessly worked for and identified with. A career that meant so much to me. I was about to leave my family,my home,my mom,my almost-everything, to move half way across the country for the first time. Because of it all, I withdrew myself from everyone, I thought it would make the change easier.
I was depressed,scared,lost,unhealthy and unsure of what to do.
We arrived and I knew then more than ever that i needed to make a change for me and for my family. I'm so happy I did.
Sure I have lost weight and inches and actually physically am in better shape than I was BEFORE the baby. I put on a pair of Jean's in a fitting room and for the first time enjoyed it.🙌But that's not all that matters. My mental game is stronger. I have made more friends than I actually had before. I have had the courage to do things I've never done,the energy to homeschool and keep up with two kids,and the realization that even though I don't have a classroom to teach,teaching my own children is the greatest blessing.
I get to call many places home. I get to see things I would have never seen. I get to go to Bible study on Wednesdays with so many amazing women.
I get to actually experience life now. I'm no longer chained by comparison,the past, day to day working hours,poor health or the many other things that kept me thinking so small.
If you feel trapped,there is a way out.
If you feel overwhelmed, step back.
If you feel yourself withdrawing, have courage to go to someone(I would be that person for anyone). Don't think small,you were made for more!
