The Strong Mom Movement
I'M LOOKING FOR MOTIVATED MOMS!
When I was growing up, I was an athletic kid. I played sports, joined the marching band, and lifted weights with friends. I wasn’t a super beefy guy, but I was fit and worked out enough to lead a healthy lifestyle.
It wasn’t until I graduated high school that I became overweight. I made a lot of decisions that wrecked my health. I partied hard, drank, did drugs, ate out every day, and never exercised. My parents sat me down one day and told me how my life choices were making them afraid. I got a wake-up call, but I didn’t really know what to do to make the changes in my life.
All of my bad decisions caught up with me. My health went downhill fast. I lost 60 pounds in a year, and not the good kind of weight loss. It was unexplained and I spent time in the hospital having countless tests. Was it cancer? A disease? They didn’t know. The doctors couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me.
When I finally found out that I have IBS, I had a starting place. It literally saved my life. I researched everything I could get my hands on to get my illness under control. It was wrecking my life, my relationships, and my health. I made it my mission to get my health under control so I could overcome my fear and anxiety of having an episode while out in public.
What I really learned through all of this is that you can eat right and workout, but if you don’t develop a healthy relationship with food, you won’t be successful. It was very hard to give up the foods I loved for the sake of my health. When I pinpointed the emotional reasons I was eating the way I did, I could work through my crap and finally get healthy.
I’ve made it my mission to help others develop the right mindset, put into place a workout routine, and a menu plan that will give them lasting results. If I can do it, you can to.
