A long sharing is caring time with this TBT post.
With hard work comes results. Sometimes you need help getting the results you need and sometimes, "You got this!" It does not mean the hard work was not put in. Never be ashamed to ask for help if you need those results. .
I struggled with obesity my whole life. We all know the stories of struggle from either personal experience or from hearing anothers so I won't bore you with all the details on how salads made me fat 😉. What I will say is I made the decision to do what I needed to do to start to live my authentic life.
In 2011 I weighed in at my heaviest of 293lbs. I was killing myself slowly and needed help. The help I found was in gastric bypass, specifically RNY. A decision that for me, allowed me to be able to truly live for the first time in my life.
We all have struggles we deal with on the daily and social media sometimes tends to show all the 🌞 and 🌈 shit. I still do struggle with what makes me turn to food for comfort but now I don't give in as easy. I find healthier alternatives like moto, bicycles, nature, pew-pew, doodling, friends and family.
I am proud of who I am and the process it took to get me here. From that girl who would be out of breath while trying to tie her shoes to this bad ass broad who rides centuries, runs, competes in cycling events and is now falling in love with dirt biking and having the time of her life while gaining more skills and scars. It's never to late to make a change in life and of course there will be ups and downs but looking back anything worth anything is worth fighting for. 👊
