If you’re reading this than I’m sure that picture of the Mom on the beach with her kids, really hit home for you. Well…you’re not alone! I see and hear it all the time at the beach. Mom’s not wanting to go in the ocean or to the pool with their kids because they DREAD having to put on a suit….and God forbid someone you know will see you! I see women covering themselves up with anything at arms reach…a towel, their husband’s sweatshirt or a kid! Yes, I have seen women grab their children and walk them in front of them in hopes of hiding the way they look and feel in their suit. I see this and it makes me sad. I can totally empathize with these women because THIS WAS ME!!!
My turning point.
What made me change? Well, it’s a scene almost exactly like this picture. My son desperately wanted to take swimming lessons but, I he was too young to take them alone. So I HAD to get in the pool with him. I looked at my son’s eyes and thought “How could I hold him back because of my own insecurities? “How could I stop him from learning a skill that could potentially save his life one day?”
THAT WAS IT!!! I decided that day that I would never let me weight and insecurities effect him or hold him back. The very next day, I put on that suit and got in the pool with him. I will tell you that it tok everything I had inside of me NOT to go running the other way and make up an excuse that the lessons were “cancelled.” The joy in this kids eyes and the expressions on his face were well worth any embarrassment or shame I had felt. That moment made me realize that it wasn’t fair to my son to have a Mom that couldn’t(or didn’t want to) participate in all of the fun activities.
I tried several “diets” on my own to help get the weight off. I didn’t need to look like a supermodel or get my 20 year old body back. I just wanted to feel confident in my own skin again!!
I knew I had to try something different, something I had never done before. Like I said…I tried EVERYTHING!!! So it was going to take a lot of searching!!
I found a group online that offered to help me by providing support, education and accountability. “WOAH!!! This was new!!! I don’t think I like this! You mean I have to participate with OTHER people and NOT alone?” My first instinct was to click the little X and get off that site as quick as possible. But, I thought of that little boy that would miss out on so many experiences and it broke my heart. I would rather be incredibly uncomfortable than have him be disappointed. SO…I took a leap of faith and I JOINED!!!
I was scared to death!!!
Little did I know that this would turn out to be one of the best decisions of MY LIFE!!!
I not only lost 35 pounds and 36 inches but, I gained all of my confidence back! I felt like I had just been given a new lease on life. I made friends in that group that I will have forever. I was afraid to reach out to anyone and ask for help. Well, those people that I was afraid of were the ones that made all of the difference in the world. We went through the hard times together, helped to motivate and support each other, hold each other accountable and celebrated our successes together. I can honestly say that I would have NEVER been able to do this without them!!!
I’m so glad that I took that leap of faith, got out of my comfort zone and ASKED FOR HELP!!!
MY LIFE TODAY, 4 YEARS LATER:
I’m going to be 45 next month and I feel like a kid again! I have never felt better in my life. I’m not only healthy but, I’m SO SO SO HAPPY!!! I get to experience all of the joys of childhood all over again through the eyes of my son…..and not watching from the sidelines. I’m that Mom that is outside playing catch, being the soccer goalie, riding bikes, jumping in bouncy houses, building castles in the sand, having water balloon fights, playing tag, coaching the team, and swimming in the ocean , etc…with her kid.
I LOVE being THAT Mom! I can’t imagine what my son’t life would have been like or how different his personality would have been if I had never taken that leap of faith that changed our lives.
I may never have a rock hard bikini body again but, I’m ok with that! I have the confidence to know that I look and feel good and it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks of me. My relationship with my husband and our marriage is so much stronger because I’m not that insecure woman anymore.
ARE YOU READY TO TAKE A LEAP OF FAITH?
Throughout my journey, I started to realize that I NEEDED to pay this experience forward. I really never knew how bad I felt until I started feeling good again. You see, it slowly creeps up on you, day by day and you don’t take notice to the small, daily changes that are slowing you down and making you unhealthy.
I want to be that change for you….I want to make a difference in the lives of others, just as someone else made a difference in mine.
