Starting over sucks, but it’s not impossible!

After taking a little hiatus during a transition period in my life, I’m so excited to be back and able to share with everyone my “Life After Loser.” It’s been rough this past year or so, but I’m ready to start over and hope my journey is encouraging to you!

I’ve been very candid about the fact that I’ve gained a lot of weight since the show. Do I take responsibility for that…yes, do I blame some unhealthy habits I learned during the show for making it harder for me to lose weight long term…yes. The thing I have realized years after standing on that Biggest Loser stage though, is that no matter the reasons or circumstances that made me gain this weight back, I have to take care of it whether I think it’s fair or not.

I don’t want to start off my new chapter on a negative note, and that’s what I love about the quote, “You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.” The past is the past, and I’m so ready to look forward to feeling happy and healthy again.

I’ve learned tons of lessons these past couple years as I’ve striven to get back to this point of being able to encourage others (and myself) again, and I’m looking forward to sharing those with you too! I’ve began eating differently, looking at exercise differently, and realizing that the mental badgering we put ourselves through eventually will rear it’s ugly head, and asking for help with pushing through and dealing with those things isn’t weakness, it actually takes a lot of strength.

I hope you can look at this blog as more than just healthy recipes, workouts, and videos, but in addition to those things look at it as a safe place of encouragement when the health journey doesn’t go exactly how you planned and find support in others who are on this journey with you! We are a community wanting to cheer each other on…and I’ll be the first one to do it 🙂

So let’s say goodbye to the past and all the excuses, reasons, heart break, and negativity RIGHT NOW! Today is page one of the next chapter and I’m excited to see your growth and transformations.  I’m looking froward to sharing mine with you too!

So let’s get started!
