Before & after I lost 60 pounds icon smile Have Fun Getting Fit

I was overweight half my life & used to think that eating healthy was boring & miserable.

I was wrong.

After losing 60 lbs, I became obsessed with doing too much cardio & eating too little calories, while also calorie counting. Then I realized that eating healthy is AMAZE, super yummy, & it’ll change your life.

I started playing with food . . .and having a blast. I created new recipes – made them and the most fun part . . . taste testing!! Now, I have teamed up with my friend Sarah to bring you the most FUN cookbook!

Your Body and Your Image: Seeing Yourself Healthy

The way you see yourself & your thoughts are literally what creates your life & happiness. I have personally struggled with an unhealthy body image for most of my life. I was overweight for half my life & a few years ago finally lost 60 lbs. Since then I’ve kept it off (gained a few in muscle though), but I continue to view myself as the girl I used to be when I looked in the mirror. Then God & the Pastor at my church started working on me about this topic. There is a way to love yourself & I like to call it your body and your image: seeing yourself healthy.

It’s all about the thoughts that you let stay in your head – you have to control that ACESSS – those negative thoughts CAN be kicked to the curb! There are going to be so many negative thoughts that pass through your mind each day, but you MUST overcome them with positive thinking & the Word of God. Remember how God views you & just how beautiful & fearless He made you. You DESERVE to be happy! Surround yourself with positivity so that those negative thoughts don’t stand a chance. It’s your body and your image: seeing yourself healthy.

Here are some more tips that I found, I love this list!!! It’s your body and your image: seeing yourself healthy.

I want to encourage you to enjoy the process & be thankful for what you do have! My body has changed A LOT since starting Insanity almost 2 months ago! I’m not exactly where I want to be because I want to continue getting more toned & stronger, but I’m so thankful for how far I’ve come! I’m now able to get through almost all the workouts without stopping, I’ve lost several inches & a few pounds, I have a little mini two pack that comes & goes, my cellulite is basically go on, & my arms are more toned. So I’m sharing that with you to say pick out the GOOD – go write down your list & be thankful for that today! Stop complaining about the rest & thank God for what you do have right now! It’s your body and your image: seeing yourself healthy.

Please RT or share with anyone this may help!

As always, don’t forget to love yourself!

Mind, Body and Spirit: The Perfect Trinity For A Healthy Body Image

Body Mind Spirit Mind, Body and Spirit: The Perfect Trinity For A Healthy Body Image I am so excited to talk about one of my favorite topics today – the mind, body, & spirit. They are truly the perfect trinity for a healthy body image. Since I was overweight half my life, I’ve struggled with a healthy body image. Even after losing 60 lbs it’s something that I struggle with almost daily. It is definitely a process, but it becomes easier every day when your mind, body, & spirit are aligned.

If you don’t know my story, it’s been a step by step process to align my mind, body, & spirit. At the age of 21, I was so tired of being unhappy with myself, drinking my problems away every day, & not feeling comfortable in my own body. I tried ever single thing possible to try to lose weight from pills, to Slim Fast, to the Atkins diet. You name it, I tried it.

After going through teenage years of being tormented & a verbally abusive marriage that ended in divorce at the young age of 19, I knew that I HAD to do something to change my life. I was so sick & tired of feeling depressed, I had no confidence, & just felt like there had to be more to life. I also met a very attractive guy in college who I was trying to impress after my divorce, so part of that was my motivation to look better. My mind, body & spirit were not aligned at this time of my life.

I was eating terrible foods because I worked in food & beverage, so I was constantly eating fried foods, desserts, & consuming alcohol. So, I decided to change what I was eating, cut my portions in half, & added a fruit or vegetable to each meal. I also started doing an at home workout DVD because I was too embarrassed to workout at the gym & didn’t know what to do. You’ll see in a minute that even though I was taking care of my body, my mind, body, & spirit were still out of balance.

After making these changes, I lost 30 lbs during my senior year of college in 2009. However, I continued drinking all the time & my relationship with the attractive guy from college wasn’t going that well. Then I graduated college & was in the real world at a full-time “grown up” job, so my partying had to stop. I moved in with a roommate who was also losing weight, so I started running with her. My mind, body, & spirit were still not aligned, even though I started taking care of my body.

I then lost another 30 lbs after eliminating alcohol in 2010, incorporating a variety of workouts, & improving my nutrition even more by eating healthy every day. I ended up going through a bad break up with her boyfriend after a couple of years. This is what started the process of aligning my mind, body, & spirit. You can see below what I looked like in 2009 to what I look like today in July of 2013. Body Mind Spirit1 Mind, Body and Spirit: The Perfect Trinity For A Healthy Body Image

 

Although my body was healthy, my mind & soul were not. I was not happy, confident, or close to God. I hit rock bottom in 2011 & was at a very depressed state, so I decided to start attending church more often. I then got baptized again, joined a life group, started volunteering at church & in the community, & reading my Bible & praying daily. Now that I had a healthier body, I was finally learning how to align my mind, body, & spirit to have a healthy body image.

I then learned towards the end of 2012 about having a relationship with God & living like Jesus. God then helped me to become more confident & happy with myself as a single woman. I had never been single before & felt like I couldn’t live without having a significant other. But, I began to realize all I needed was Jesus in her life & I fell in love with Him. At last my mind, body, & spirit were aligned because I learned about how God viewed me.

I am so passionate about helping others realize that the body, mind, & soul all work together. I know that there are so many women out there who are struggling, dark, & depressed like I was before. God has revealed that He is going to use me to help others through those same struggles to change their entire life. I want to change the world one life at a time by teaching women how to align their mind, body, & spirit.

He helped transform my life from being dark, disrespectful, depressed, and overweight to positive, caring, happy, and healthy. You can also align your mind, body, & spirit, which is the perfect trinity for a healthy body image. Learn to view yourself as God views you. If you ever have trouble figuring that out just remember this Bible verse which always gives me encouragement,

“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” ~ Jeremiah 29:11
