Read Laura’s Story:

I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression for years.  Two years ago it got so bad that I stopped caring what I looked like. My husband was always away on travel and food became my companion. I ate when I was tired.  I ate when I was anxious.  I ate when I was sad. I ate when I was bored. The weight began to pile on. I hated myself. I bathed in the dark so that I wouldn’t have to look at my own body in the mirror. I went from an active mom that played with her kids to one that was content watching life pass me by in the sidelines.

This challenge couldn’t have come at a better time. I had to lose some of this weight, but even more importantly, I had to find my why again.  I started off strong, but was of course challenged by life and it’s many obstacles. Dying family. Sick children. Absent husband. When it came to excuses…I could throw out many.   I slipped up many times  with my diet and at times went a week or two with only walks and a quick yoga session as my exercise. In the past this would have triggered the self-hate and disappointment in me. I would have just quit. I was already a failure, right?

Something in me was different this time. I forgave myself. I got up each time after I fell and I kept trying. So maybe I wouldn’t “win”. Maybe I wouldn’t have the after picture that I had envisioned. That was ok. I found myself again during this challenge. I am strong. I will mess up. I will struggle. But I am a fighter. I will keep fighting as I inch towards my ultimate goal of health.

My successes this challenge were that I lost 17.5 pounds. I lost almost 6 inches in my waist alone. I am sleeping better. I’m playing with my kids more. I can look in the mirror again and be proud of myself and what I’m working towards.   Oh and I can see my triceps muscles again. That was a huge accomplishment for me. I plan to continue to treat my body with love and patience as I slowly beat my excuses and work towards health.
