I remember so clearly laying in bed at night feeling low and come up with grand plans about how I was going to "get skinny." 😆
Diet pills....Low carb....Grapefruit....Cabbage soup....I counted points, calories, portions....Over exercised....Drank my calories....Saved up and then binged… 😣
It was the consistent struggle between “getting back on track” or just saying eff it and drinking wine and binge eating SnackWells cookies for dinner, even though I just had restocked my fridge with loads of fresh produce. 🥦
I was always looking for the next big thing that was going to give me the body I really wanted, but was really stuck on the start-again-stop-again train. And I wondered why I couldn’t get out of bed in the morning, struggled with irritable bowels and why I couldn’t “just get skinny”😆
Then, in my early 30s, about a year and a half after my son was born, I was the thinnest I have ever been -- and also the real beginning of what I now recognize was a completely warped body image. I loved my body -- but I didn’t fully enjoy my life-- I was too busy obsessing about food, did 3 day starvation cleanses regularly to "reboot" or "get back on track" and was super judgmental every time I ate "too many" carbs, "too much" fat, or enjoyed an ice cream cone with my family. 🤣
These years of chronically dieting ultimately triggered a hormone imbalance, that caused an ugly string of symptoms to rear their heads..
🤷🏻♀️Missing and irregular cycles
👄Chronic mouth sores
🤚🏼 Dryness and loss of skin pigmentation
💁🏻♀️ Brittle hair & nails
🤯 Constant state of brain fog.
I began seeing doctor, after doctor, after doctor, and chased my own tail with no answers until I couldn’t take it anymore. Something needed to change...
