A short time ago a lady came into the studio and said that she needed to lose her baby weight. Her baby was now 5. She smiled because she knew that it wasn’t baby weight any more, she had just never lost any of the weight after her pregnancy, in fact she had put more on.
She was tired all the time, with no energy to run around with her 2 boys, let alone try and do everything else she needed to. She felt that she wasn’t being the best role model to her kids, she wasn’t active and didn’t eat well, but was trying to get her children to eat healthily. She didn’t feel comfortable in any of her clothes, refused to go and buy the next size up and simply didn’t feel comfortable in herself. She tended to avoid social situations because of this. She had stopped doing the things she enjoyed doing because she didn’t feel good about herself. And she had had enough, it was time to sort that out.
This is a story I hear over and over again.
Ladies who have put everyone else first for so long, that they have got to the stage, where they’re actually at breaking point. They haven’t looked after themselves, so they can’t do as good a job as they would like, of helping everyone else.
You have to look after you! I cannot stress this enough!
