8 years ago after having my two sons, I was left with the dreaded “MOM BOD” where you have this annoying extra weight that won’t seem to go away because your entire body changed after pregnancy and birth.
I dealt with it for two years after my second son was born until I finally hit a point and I said enough is enough and I was tired of feeling sorry for myself. I was tired of having the “baby weight” when I didn’t have a baby any more. So I dove deep into what I thought health was and worked out heavily and restricted calories.
In fact, I was so obsessed I even entered competitions and did pretty well. But something started to happen and I quickly realized health IS NOT just working out or dieting. I was “in the best shape of my life” but I was NOT healthy.
