I have struggled with my body for years now. I currently have issues with emotional eating, secretly indulging (bingeing) on food when others are not around to “judge me”. I have on numerous occasions sabotaged my own fat loss success by engaging in the above mentioned behaviors.
When I was 23 I made the snap decision to move interstate (from Adelaide to Melbourne) with my best mate. We had been on a snow trip together (the best snow trip) and had returned home with new levels of confidence, and the crazy idea we were moving!! Within a month we had packed our cars up with all the important stuff, shoes, clothes, music… more shoes and we were on our way. I had arranged a job transfer with the company I worked for and my best mate had organised a perfect little unit for us to live in. For me this was huge and it was my first glimpse into how simple it really was to change my life.
Fast forward about 4 years from when I moved to Melbourne and I was in a rut. I had changed jobs and was working in an office job I disliked more and more, day by day. All of a sudden (at least that’s what it felt like) my pants didn’t fit, my t-shirts didn’t fit, my bloody underwear didn’t fit and BAM I was Fat. Correction I had Fat… All over me.
I have had success with losing the fat and changing my body, however after making the decision to change my career path I found myself working full time, studying part time and trying to manage life the same way I was before… it didn’t work. I love training but more often than not I found I was fighting with myself to just go and get a workout done. Surprise I put fat back on!! I am tired of this perpetual cycle and its time to change.
I am here to be open and honest about what goes on behind my doors in the hope that other women will open up and start recognising their own self sabotaging habits. I would love to hear your stories and comments below.
Let’s all live a little braver each day, break free and chase your dreams.
