Honesty Hour: Healthy Weight Loss, tells the journey of going from a toxic relationship with food, to a healthy and loving relationship with food!
I have to say a HUGE thank you for the amazing love and support that last week’s Honesty Hour: Real Body Love, Postpartum received. Your support means so so much to me.
This week we are happy to share one of Ruthie’s hardest and greatest stories!!!
Honesty Hour: Healthy Weight Lost
235 were the numbers starring back at me. That was more than I’d ever weighed pregnant. How could that be? I was the queen of diets! You name it . . . I have done it. Oh and if it was popular in the 90’s there’s good chance I have tried that diet at least a couple of times.
You see my love/hate relationship with food began in my early childhood and continued to be an on-going struggle into my late 20’s. I loved food, but plainly it was NOT loving me back. I felt exhausted with life. I wanted to feel good in my body and to engage in my life. I’ll never forget that day on the bathroom scale. It was the beginning of the search to regain my health.
I learned how to process emotions in a healthy way. I began walking, then jogging, and that led to running! I discovered that I loved to run! My first 5K meant as much to me as my first marathon. All said and done, it took me four years to lose 95 pounds. I regained my health, started to embrace my life, and fell in love with the amazing gift that a body is. I love this book (it was key in my transformation), “Intuitive Eating” by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch. I share in hopes that anyone in a similar place might find hope, insight, and maybe a few new ways to help. As always . . . try it on, take what fits, and leave the rest. . .
Maintaining a Healthy Weight Loss
It’s been 20 years since that fated day on the bathroom scale. The path of health is an on-going journey in my life. I’m constantly checking in; am I really hungry or am I just stressed? I LOVE food. I love creating and sharing with this passion of mine. I’m grateful to have gained the skills to navigate this area of my life. I’m so grateful for my body and all that it allows me do: to move, to feel, to taste, to smell, to see, to create, to express, to live! Every moment is a beautiful gift! ❤️
