  • To the girl on the left that looked fine on the outside but was in excruciating pain everyday, you were so much stronger than you even knew.⁣

For so many years I had no idea what was wrong with me, but was in pain everyday. I could barely eat, let alone know what it was like to exercise and go to the gym. But I was skinny and that was the way I knew I was still “pretty.” Oh how I look back and wish I knew what I know now. ⁣
⁣
After I was diagnosed with #ulcerativecolitis and I finally could eat and not feel sick everyday, my body was digesting food properly which naturally lead to weight gain. For a while I really struggled with that and didn’t know how to handle it. I realized I didn’t actually know what it meant to eat healthy or know how to exercise for my body. That lead to me trying every workout program out there! Trust me when I said I have tried them ALL. And nothing was quite right. Nothing had the community or accountability I didn’t realize I needed in order to stay consistent. That’s why I’m so thankful I found this. And let’s not forget the nutrition side of things (since that’s 75% of the work). Never have I felt so free to eat food that nourishes my body while still indulging in all the things I used to never be able to eat. It’s true that what you put into your body makes a huge difference in how you feel.⁣

Moral of the story? I used to wish I was as skinny as I used to be when I was sick. But now I am so thankful for this strong body I have. I might weigh more, but I’ll take that any day over the pain I felt on this inside. Also, you never know what people are going through. I looked fine to others at the time, but damn I was so sick. Appreciate your health because at the end of the day it’s all we have. 🎤 To the girl on the left that looked fine on the outside but was in excruciating pain everyday, you were so much stronger than you even knew.⁣ ⁣ For so many years I had no idea what was wrong with me, but was in pain everyday.

  • #tbt to a few years ago when I was in and out of the hospital more times than I can count. 
I was newly diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder where my body is pretty much allergic to itself. A simple cold would last for weeks and more likely than not, turn into something more serious like pneumonia. 
My health was at an all time low and I thought about throwing in the towel on life because without a cure, there was no way I was going to live my entire life this way. 
Little did I know that changing one tiny thing about my nutrition on a daily basis would bring me to where I am today. I hardly ever get sick. If I do catch something (working in a big office doesn’t help that!) I bounce back very quickly. 
Not to mention the money I am saving from not going to the hospital and getting off all but one of the 22 pills I used to take every day just to function. 
All it took was one tiny change. Incorporating superfoods into my diet once a day. It cut my cravings for chocolate. It helped me take baby steps to where I am now with my nutrition. I actually enjoy eating healthy foods. I am getting healthy from the inside out. 
If you don’t make time to eat healthy and stay active now, you better leave room in your future calendars for illness. 
The sand will run out on your health...what you do now determines how fast it filters through the hourglass.
