I posted this picture on my Facebook, and I have never received so much positive feedback and encouragement. I spent the past three years beating myself up for everything. I had resigned myself to a sedentary lifestyle. The odds were stacked against me in terms of my genetic history. Why shouldn’t I eat what I want since I would end up diabetic anyway? I might as well enjoy it while I can. My tests results that indicated prediabetes had sent me into a tailspin of despair and frustration.
Then I saw a post on Facebook from a dear childhood friend of mine who talked about being a part of a Facebook group where we could hold each other accountable. I reached out to her, and we talked about my health and fitness goals. I started making those small changes in my diet and my exercise routine that helped kickstart my fitness journey.
I had so much fun, and I saw great results! I kept continuing with her groups. Her positive energy was contagious! I began taking sweaty selfies after my workouts, and I became inspired by the energy and support from the rest of the people in our group. Thank you K for introducing me to an amazing group of people and a fantastic side of health and fitness that I did not realize was out there. I had been missing the final component to my recovery from postpartum depression and postpartum anxiety – my physical health. I finally feel comfortable in my skin, inside and out.
