When I created the Break Free Mastermind, I wanted to teach on specific topics that majority of women struggle with and give them Guest Experts every month. We have the distinct honor of Guest Expert, Angie Garner who will be talking about creating reachable goals and commitment that never wavers. An honor to have her in Fearful to Fit’s Break Free Mastermind.
I was in 6th grade when my worth was stripped away. It was the first time someone made me feel bad about how much I weighed. Before that point I didn’t know that the scale dictated how I was supposed to feel about myself.
From that point on until my twenties, I battled HARD with confidence and weight.
I weighed myself before and after hot yoga.
I counted calories.
I skipped meals until I was so hungry that I binged.
I remember my daily intake…
1 venti chai tea half peanut butter power bar
bike at level 10 for 40 minutes
lunch: other half power bar
post bikram yoga: spinach salad with veggie patty
and that was it…
my pants fell off.
my skin was bad.
I was finally skinny, but miserable.
I “arrived” and was the same person.
but that all changed when I stopped dieting. Funny, isn’t it?
The moment I realized that people would still want me around if I was 5 pounds up, some boyfriends even preferred me with more meat on my bones, it was like a breath of fresh air.
I was knocked down a few more times by insecure men, didn’t know it then, but years of reflection gave me that level of knowing.
