I'm going to be real, this was literally...the...hardest...episode... I have ever recorded. I tried not to cry or get too emotional on you.
Why? Today I am sharing my deepest and fear and current struggle, with my weight, self-image, body-image, and even my fear in regards to *trying* to start a family. Or what I call, trying to have a MOMbod in a 6-pack world.
TRUTH: I am 10 pounds heavier than my normal self. That means most of my jeans currently don't fit, I don't fully look at myself in the mirror right now, and I am trying to be okay with it. I know, that all sounds super shallow.
YES I am already debating in my head whether or not to even share this episode, or this description right now, because it might make me seem like a shallow person.
BUT I am going to challenge myself to be real, vulnerable, and to share the hard things. I am sharing this today to vocalize what I am struggling with. If I am struggling with the negative self talk, the destructive behavior, and body image issues, I know other women are struggling too.
Find out WHY I am actually NOT trying to lose the weight, why I feel like it is important to share and be vulnerable about my current struggle, and HOW we can be there for one another. By sharing today's episode, I hope to inspire you to not give up on yourself - no matter what your struggle is.
