How Intuitive Eating Helped Me Gain A Truly Healthy Life!

I wanted to share a little bit more about my personal story. This #TransformationTuesday is not about weight loss, but about GAINING a new perspective on what a healthy life truly means. The girl on the left and right don't physically look much different, but what's dramatically changed is the mindset and thoughts that consume her brain on a daily basis. Believe it or not, on my wedding day, all I had to eat were a couple protein bars and some fruit. I was TERRIFIED of not fitting into my dress. My sweet fiancé (now husband) made sure leading up to the wedding that I didn't go crazy with exercise and dieting. I was grateful for that, but I still had lots of negative thoughts flooding my brain. When the day of the wedding came, we didn't see each other until I walked down the aisle, so I relied on those few protein bars to get me through the day. It makes me cringe to think about how the most important day of my life was consumed by negative thoughts about food. 😩I stumbled across the Intuitive Eating Book, and was blown away by the basic science of the concept. Instead of telling myself I couldn't have XYZ, I said ok, I'll have some of it, and my body LOVED it. I no longer had these insane binges on junk food because I allowed my body to eat it when it wanted it! Kinda crazy how your body knows what it needs and when you feed it what it wants, it doesn't need a ton of it to satisfy you! Now, my thoughts are full of JOY and life is so much more fun because I am truly present in each moment instead of worrying about food! My goal is to encourage other women to know that they are more than just a number, you are BEAUTIFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE! God created us all to be unique. I want everyone who struggles with food to experience how amazing intuitive eating feels and how much freedom it can bring! I hate how much society emphasizes that skinny is better! Everyone has their own unique body size and that's something to embrace!! Thanks for letting me share some of my story. “I will praise You because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, and I know this very well.”
