When it came to health, weight loss and nutrition, if there was a max on the number of mistakes you could make, I think I topped it. In my twenties, I was utterly confused on what was truly healthy.
“I was on a mission to become what I thought (at the time) was the epitome of health”
But what I did was… actually stress myself out pursuing diet after diet, jumping on one fad after the other trying to get and stay “slim”. I was literally a diet addict, receiving another blow to my self-esteem each time I came up short.
I was often fascinated with the fitness and health gurus who handed out “standard” nutrition and weight loss plans that promised magical results. And being that I am a goal getting fanatic, I went after all of them with my heart and soul, working hard to make little to no progress at all OR when I did, found it nearly impossible to maintain.
And eventually, as a reward for all that effort, I fried my adrenals and jacked up my metabolism.
So by 30, well I had found 30 – pounds that is, and I had reached my boiling point. It was at that time, I decided to make a change – a REAL change.
