When you are overweight there can be an overwhelming feeling of shame.
I know this because I have felt it, and I know it because I have read so many comments from our customers who feel it at times.
“STOP BEING ASHAMED IF HOW MANY TIMES YOU’VE FALLEN, AND START BEING PROUD OF HOW MANY TIMES YOU’VE GOT UP!”
If we want to create a real transformation, it can’t be built on feelings of shame. Shame might spur us on to take action, but we need to be able to take our story and turn it into something empowering and positive.
I have to admit that I felt a lot of shame when my marriage broke down and I gained a lot of weight. Here I was the owner of a diet company and I had gained a lot of weight with both my pregnancies, and now again after my marriage broke down. It has been a tough journey emotionally and physically.
It has taken a lot of self love and self reflection to let go of the feelings of shame and embrace my journey.
I am proud of the person I am today because I have had to go through so much, and I have grown a lot because of it.
My hope is that I can take everything I have learned from my experiences and help thousands of people because of it. That thought really spurs me on, it gives me purpose.
