Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired!?
About the word "Evolve..." Never truly gave the word much thought until Sept 2014when I met JT. Honestly, it truly had no meaning until months afterward when I took the first steps to my evolving. Jan 2015, I took a deep breath and took my first step towards helping myself... I was: *Severely overweight until my health failure was beyond my control (or so I convinced myself for years). *Deeply depressed (not clinically, but my mind was stuck to that mindset). *Nutritionally deficit (due to years of "trying this" and "trying that" diet plans... carb counting... Heck, I even was an anorexic at one point and time in my life). *"Unhealthy healthy" (yes, there is such a thing... when you look to other methods of trying to convince yourself what you are doing is correct). *Completely miserable, completely lost (I was hard to live with, I avoided going to the beach, I avoided even going to church, because I was "FAT." I let my bad habits and my lack of motivation ROB me of making memories... Rob me of precious time with my family. I had a low self-esteem). *Sick and tired of being sick and tired!
It took me months... NOT WEEKS, NOT DAYS... to discover results. Best result ever was creating lifestyle changes! I had value!! I had purpose! Changes I made will, and HAVE, stayed with me. So much so, when my eyes see certain foods I used to indulge to escape reality, my mind and heart tell me it isn't worth it. Am I perfect? NO! Have I had multiple setbacks... Yep! Will I beat myself up and quit? NOPE! And I owe it all to JT for his "tough love," pep talks, big heart, and guru-ism. I also owe it to the precious people that have come into my life that have encouraged me along the way. All have helped me to become EMPOWERED! My family means so much to me. Being healthy and happy is something they deserve as well.
