I don’t talk about my past much because, honestly It’s embarrassing for me. I use to weigh 80 lbs more than what I weigh now. 😰 To this day when I explain my story and share my weight loss transformation- I see people’s faces or hear the “wow” it is like a physical dagger in my gut! 😔 That probably comes from the insecurities I even now struggle with, because although I’ve lost so much I still have skin I need to tighten and tone. . . . I was in the hospital a few years ago when I was around 10 months postpartum. -a freak neti pot accident- as soon as I was admitted the doctor came in and I was understandably still hormonal and frustrated that I was separated from my baby - There I was in the emergency room. Honestly a hospital is just no place for a baby so I was dealing with some major separation anxiety. The first thing the Dr. wanted to do was diagnose me with depression and give me an antidepressant 😟 I kindly declined. . . . A few months later I started to develop anxiety issues and my OCD continued to become an issue for me. I was then put on heart medication. The only reason I took that medication was because I was having such horrible anxiety attacks that were causing intense breast-feeding issues and was so afraid of not being the mother my daughter deserved. . . . All this to say as soon as I started juicing and ultimately removed all animal products I gained my emotional, physical, and mental health back. At that time I also started using plant-based products to help stimulate a more thriving environment. I no longer have a severe anxiety attacks 3 to 4 times a week -like I did back than when I would have to call my husband home from work because I simply could not do something so normal. I had gained freedom by limiting my food choices, I know it sounds weird but in a sense - I am honestly just limiting harmful products and giving myself so much more to eat and to flourish with no side effects. I am so thankful for this
I love decorating my #smoothiebowls it’s my favourite part, but sometimes being messy or should I say rustic looks great too. The smoothie bowl , almond milk and peanut butter used to for this where all made by our amazing @nutramilk_uk Photographer @coffee_and_i_uk
