I would like to share with you hoping some of you will be going through the same thing and need encouragement or understand. I have horrible anxiety since having my third son. I had some postpartum depression and didn’t even want to leave the house the first couple months he was born. When I came back to work I felt a lot of guilt but knew I needed to get back to clients and classes. I had an injury during my pregnancy and my body hasn’t been the same. My son is now 14 months old and I still haven’t lost more than 10lbs from pregnancy. I am a personal trainer and fitness instructor so with this professional and as a women I feel many eyes are on me and my image and it isn’t where I want it to be. I work out usually 5 to 6 days a week and eat a plant based diet for the most part but I don’t feel I look the part sometimes. I see photos and don’t like what I see and do certain workout moves and don’t like the way it feels due to weight. I have skipped events, stayed home instead of going out and workout alone because of these things. So to get to the point I constantly have to remind myself there isn’t a “perfect body” and I believe health and wellness are much more than our body image. I feel like I feel this way because there is an image out there I don’t want to strive for but I do because it is ingrained in my brain. My isn’t her body and may never be. I want to be a support system to those working hard towards wellness and help lift them up. Please say this with me today so we can work towards positive actions towards wellness. I am enough, I am beautiful, I am strong. The more we celebrate our success in the things we do and what we are not we will be happier. This has been my goal and I have been working more and more on celebrating what I can do and not focusing what I am not.
